A few pretties for Tea-time Tuesday

Ruby & Audrey
played together all weekend at our home. So much, that Audrey slept all day Monday. Completely pooped.
See the little peach feet on Ruby. She is just like her mom, Annie. Annie completely ignored Ruby this time. It's like she is done with her now.

Today my weekend cat-sitting winds down.  And you know that when I have time on my hands I'm going to start playing with dishes again.

To me, they are little pieces of art.

  1. I agree completely that they are tiny pieces of art. Clovis is tired from avoiding the new puppy but seems to be adjusting.

  2. Love you teacups AND your kitties! Mine had a cat visitor to care for him while we were on holiday. 10 days and she never saw him. Just saw empty food bowl, used box and moved toys. Tinker is so SHY! We call him Captain Courageous! Thanks for sharing and linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  3. Hello,
    your cats are so interesting. This is a lovely photo of the (almost) black cats with the white linnen and the shade.
    And your china is lovely, too. I enjoyed every photo.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  4. Love the pretties and just love those pictures of the kitties.. Hugs GJ xx

  5. Thank you so much for sharing your pretties! I love all of your teacups and your kittys are cute too! Have a wonderful week.

  6. Brulee likes our cat sitter, but Truffle is a little shy around her.

  7. You have beautiful china, Deb. I really enjoy my visits to your blog. You are a great cat lover and I enjoy hearing about your charges, as well as your own furbabies.
    Blessings, Beth

  8. You have so many beautiful dishes.... !!!

    Wow, I can't believe that Riley is 2 already, seems like we were looking at baby pictures just the other day.... how time flies. I'm looking for curls in your family..... where did she get those gorgeous curls.....

  9. Lovely tea cups. I adore the green one with the bird!

  10. I love your pretties, Deb! There is just something about teacups that makes my heart go pitter pat. Of course we all enjoy seeing your little charges too. Your job must be so much fun as I know kitties all have their own personalities! Thanks for sharing and for joining me for tea. Hope you have a delightful week.
