What's black, and white, and grey all over?

Trinket, of course!

(In black and white, that is!)

Trinket is my oldest, most favorite kitty. He's about..hmm....11 or 12 years old, I think. Maybe not that old. He's at least 10, I'm sure. Anyway, I just love him. He's so sweet, but in a completely dignified way. There's something very regal about him... just look at him!

Don't let his princely posture fool you; he has his goofy side too!

Remember yesterday, when I alluded to a new, special something from the Goodwill? I have pictures now, so here they are!

Its a ceramic mixing bowl (?) from Harry and David, and I am absolutely in love with it. If it weren't for the facts that a) I don't have my own kitchen at the moment (and mom doesn't need a huge, ceramic mixing bowl), and b) it has a tiny, itty-bitty hairline crack in the glaze.... I would use it for other purposes. But it is what it is, and so, I have turned it into a planter for some begonias.

And its sitting on top of THIS:

How awesome is that??! Its not exactly a match made in Heaven, but right now its functional. And functional is good. But when I saw the fish plant-stand at the Goodwill (for $2!!) I HAD to have it. Its pretty substantial - heavy, but not heavy enough to be wood...I think its resin. Either way, its cool. I'm going to pick up some outdoor-furniture sealant and see if I can make it suitable for my garden. Even if not, it looks pretty damn good on my porch. Now I just need a different pot to go on top of it (that matches a little better)!

And now, its started to rain. Finally! We need a little rain. There's some thunder off in the relaxing! Until the power goes out....hmm. Better sign off.
