our new roomies, a new dress, coziness and cats
so as i mentioned, joey and emily moved back in with us.
they lived with us before, from spring of 2008 to september of 2009.
sooooo the old household is back together and settling in for some cozy times. laugh attacks, movie nights, late night pig outs, impromptu dance parties and ridiculous homemade movies.
a peek around their room. it's the big one that i painted turquoise before my epic dance party, 2009.
by the time they are our age they might have even more books than we do.
owl pillow on joey's old man chair.
em's queen chair and the record player. they listen to most all their music on vinyl, which is nice.
joey's collection of hand drawn portraits.
more of em's trinkets and homemade frames.
don't you want em's jewelry?
but.....MOST IMPORTANTLY.....the newest additions to our catworld. joey and em have three cats of their own. and we have three cats. so we are back to a six cat household, my oh my. it's fun stuff around here. 5 of the 6 are younguns, so needless to say there is a lot of action.
CAMILLA, age 2
WOODY, age 1.5
and FERN, age 5 months
i can't resist adding portraits of my own, so here goes:
Cream Puff, my old man, age 145 in cat years.
Daphne (beanie) my shy girl, about 6 years old.
and Billy (bobey) my wild boy, 1 year.
billy and fern hit it off immediately and whole days are spent like this:
i have been sick for a few days but before that happened i had a chance to wear my new fall dress!
i ordered it from lovely heidi of gold country girls (they have a wonderful blog full of fun stuff about these here gold hills) and when she was in town visiting lori, another gold country sister, she hand delivered it to me at the bookstore, beautifully wrapped and so delightful.
i decided that plum colored dresses are perfect for fall. and this dress really hit the sweet spot, with the poofy sleeves and lace collar and fitted waist and ruffled hem. everything i love and more!
it was raining that day (still doing a rain dance) so i paired it with these little vintage black rainboots and a black cardigan. we had a cozy date to the movies: darin, joey, my dad and i.
i thought darin was looking pretty hans, so i took some pictures of him too.
it rained all day yesterday, a surprise. i was sick in bed so it actually felt extra cozy and i didn't even mind that there were clothes out on the line getting drenched. i've got the halloween decorations out and it is that time of year to gather those you love around you and make a fire in the stove and cook a pot of homemade soup.
