{air your laundry friday} #46

Happy Thursday.

That’s how I spent my morning…
searching for a Himalayan kitten as a Christmas gift for our family.
(I actually found several but not within my miniscule kitten budget!)
Years ago, I had a Himalayan kitten that was given to me for free
and she was the cuddliest, fluff ball with the sweetest disposition.
I cannot even handle their cuteness!
Perhaps a kitten will be joining us soon.

On a more productive note,
I finished up most of my holiday shopping and finally finished decorating my tree.
I couldn’t resist and went with the nostalgic look straight out of 1975 and I LOVE it.
(Doesn’t match a single thing in my home, but then again, this isn’t the North Pole.)
I’ll share a photo this weekend.

Now for the cuteness you actually came to see
(unless you consider kitten fur a textile):

Jen at Scissors and Spatulas shared some pretty ruffled Christmas trees.
The Homeless Finch shared the cutest upcycled sweater wine bags.
shared her crafty Gypsy Ruffle Curtains…among other things.
Meg and Mum’s shared these awesome chair and desk makeovers
(love the coordinating fabric lining in the drawers)!
Got burlap? Check out this burlap Pinspiration from Stylish Settings.
Tracy at Screaming Sardine shared this cute little Cardboard Tree tutorial.
Have a wonderful and creative weekend.
Thanks for linking or looking!

  1. TOO STINKIN’ CUTE, but then I’m an avowed cat lover!! Our daughter has a Himalayan named Presley and they call her “Pressel Sprout” She’s hilarious! Can’t wait to see your 70′s tree! xoxo

  2. Those kittens are just ADORABLE! I hope you find what you are looking for! :) And you are soooo good to get all of your holiday decorating and shopping done…I am waaay behind this year! lol I can’t wait to see what your decorated tree looks like! :)

    Cute features from last week! I linked up a recent post {woohoo} – hopefully it met the requirement. Nothing major, just some simple fabric hearts & a red felt topper on my tree. :)

    Happy Holidays!


  3. Thanks for the feature! :)

  4. Ohhhh what an amazing gift for you and your family!!! :o) How fun! Okayyyy sooooo I am going to openly admit that I am REALLY kicking the line with my first party entry…. my living room decor…. there is fabric… but PLEASE don’t feel bad if you want to take it out because it isn’t completely textile related! :o) I had another project I would have really liked to have linked up but that one just can’t qualify no matter how hard I try! :o) Anyways can you tell I love partying over here?! Hope you are having a wonderful week!!!

    I just linked up, but whether mine is really textile is debatable (though I do make the duvets)! I had to show you our rescue Himalayan, abandoned multiple times, I can’t imagine why. She has won our hearts, so much fur she is perfectly round…

  6. Hi Jami
    Thanks for featuring my burlap pinspiration. This week I actually got around to making a runner and napkin rings inspired by my pins.
    Thanks Kylie

  7. PS Those kittens are too cute!

  8. Tricia says:

    Oh my goodness, those kittens are so deliciously cute. We just got two new little kitties last week :)

    I love love love the cardboard Christmas tree!! So adorable and easy to do! And your kitties too too adorable!!

    DUDE!!! Your kids will go nuts!! What a beautiful kitty! Best Christmas gift ever, Mom! andrea@townandprairie

  11. Hi, Jami! I quietly follow your blog; but today, I just had to share! My 1st kitten as an adult on my own, Soleil ~ a Torti Seal Point…much like the beauty on the right. What a sweetheart she was for 16 yrs!

    I wonder if you have searched to see if there is a Himalayan Cat Rescue in your area or near by…many times they even have kittens. Pet finders is a decent way to find pets w/in your area…just pop in your zip code & it will locate the cats/kittens near you. Many Blessings ~H♥~

  12. Hailey Marie says:

    Wow!! Thank you so much for this feature :) I am so honored! (and also so embarrassed by my poor-quality photos…I’ve learned my lesson!) ;)
    Thank you for hosting, so many wonderful ideas!!

  13. I do think those are the cutest kittens ever. When i was a girl, my mom’s friend was a Himalayan cat breeder. They were just adorable. She made quite a good living!!

  14. Love those cute little kitties. Kittens are so irresistible!

    Thanks for featuring my fabric wrapped cardboard tree. I really appreciate it. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  15. Himalayans are the absolute best! I’m a huge fan and had two sets of these adorable furr-babies. Two of my babies were seal-points. My girl lived to be 12 and my boy 18 years.

    My current himmys are both five (they were born a few weeks apart). One is a lynx point and the other a flame point. I have photos on my blog if you’d like to check them out.

    P.S. – they do have the best personalities and drip of sugar sweetness :)

  16. Lesley says:

    Thanks so much for the feature!!! Yeah! Such a huge compliment… Gonna put the announcement on my Facebook page now and add the FEATURES tag to the post!!! Thank you big time!!! :)

  17. I love those kitties! My sister has a Ragdoll which is very similar, those are some expensive kitties and even more expensive if they are spayed or neutered. I wish I could have one, alas the price point is well beyond what I can pay right now. One day!! Thanks for sharing the cuteness.
