The Results Are In!




You have been asking what I have done with the cat shelves, and I have just finished it! Thank you all so much for your awesome suggestions! You had so many good ideas, ones that I could never think of! I loved the suggestions to put a plant on it. So I got an artificial fern, as my blog friend LISA suggested. I put a jar candle in the bottom to give it some stability. And here it is! Now I need to think of a name for him, any suggestions? I actually know a woman named Fern...

Thank you for your lovely comments and for joining in at Lawn Tea!!

Sweetpea is six, and has been with us several days a week since she was six weeks old. She has an enormous, soaring imagination and a vocabulary to match. She's a kind child, and really smart, loves to cook and make imaginary cuisine with craft, kitchen, outdoor or household items, usually cut into small pieces for soup or pie.

She's one of our Eight and Two Greats, scattered over eight states. We don't go on vacation---we go SEE chillun.

Thanks for asking---we have a lovely time together, though it's getting harder to watch the tide turn into her doing for me, reading to me, bringing me a snack, edible or pretend, for a tea party. Growing pains are SO much harder on grandparents.

And we tell each other stories, and she's featured in quite a few of the posts over the years.

it looks lovely Ginny. How about 'smiley' or 'pink lips'?

Ann said...

That looks great with the fern in it, makes for a cute blog header too.
As for a name suggestion, I'm drawing a blank

One of my co-workers long ago before I retired was a 'Fern' too.

Loved how it turned out. Ingenious. And an artificial fern is perfect since it won't ever get water-stained.

I like the name Juniper. Don't ask me why, it just came to me.

Looks lovely Ginny and clever to add the candle for stability. When I looked at your cat's face, this old endearment I used to hear as a child came to mind. "Poppet". As in "Hello Poppet". Funny what pops into your head at times.

Oh that looks beautiful! The kitty looks very happy with lovely fern and candle :-) Fern is a great name for him! If I think about other name..maybe Twinkle, because his eyes look like twinkling :-)

I like what you've done with these cat shelves. Very cute.

Roan said...

Great job! I know this is probably a female kitty, but when I looked at it the name Humphrey popped into my head. lol

Shug said...

how cute Ginny....you did a great job and making your shelf adorable. So many cute names for this little lady.... Ginger, Cinnamon, Zoey, Princess, Lady, or sofie.

Let us know what you decide...

reana claire said...

Mary Bergfeld said...

This was a terrific idea, Ginny.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Love it! The fern looks just right.
Have a happy weekend!

Lady Jane said...

The fern is perfect!!!

SquirrelQueen said...

What a wonderful idea for the shelf. I love that you used an artificial fern since it will survive if the shelf should get knocked over.

I think Fern is a great name. I've got two new foster kittens to name and my brain isn't working too well for those two.
