The Moulin

Wed, 13 Jun 2012 05:49:00 +0000

The Moulin Rouge. A night club, a dance hall and a bordello. Ruled over by Harold Zidler. A kingdom of night time pleasures. Where the rich and powerful came to play with the young and beautiful creatures of the underworld. The most beautiful of these was the one I loved. Satine. A courtesan. She sold her love to men. They called her the "Sparkling Diamond", and she was the star...of the Moulin Rouge. So get your...Gitchy gitchy ya ya ta ta...  And yourGitchy gitchy ya ya here. Come on over and play here...Come on and play...In this ' Spectacular, Spectacular! No words in the vernacular can describe this great event, you'll be dumb with wonderment!'  "Remember, a real show,   In a real theater, with a real audience.. And you'll be... A Real Actress.""Today's the day...  When dreaming ends." "If life's an awful bore, and living's just a chore that we do caus' death's not much fun. I just have the antidote, and though I mustn't gloat at the Moulin Rouge. You'll have fun... Scratch that little niggle, have a little wiggle, you know that you can... Because we can can can!!" Can you 'can can?';)xoxoCatplease be sure to gitchy gitchy ya ya yourselfover for some more Parisian delight's atAnita's!    [...]

Not an Irish Cat

Sat, 17 Mar 2012 20:54:00 +0000

Even though this 'Cat' isn't Irish,In honor of St. Patrick's Day andBeverly's Pink or Green SaturdayI figured since I am still stuck in the Northeast...and Spring is hitting hard here,I'd post about some of the refreshing lush green we get up here.ie;  Serpentina above. With the warm weather and the many parks around our areaIt is the perfect time to grab hold of that bicycle thathas been hidden away during the winter coldand get its gears ( and my behind) back into action!And with the warm weatherThe exerciseA must is a refresher...So why not something "green"in every sense of the the word...Colorand Healthy!But.....This Cat has a tad of a sweet tooth.And our town has a multiple selection of places to grab a treat to quench that desire and that 'hot flash'(from running and biking around only? I think not! LOL!)So in staying with the St. Patty's Day theme   Can you taste it?????But wait..there is more!!I mean, you know how it is, sometimes you can decide what to pick from right?Best thing to do in my bookis grab it all!!!That's what that bike is for ya know?hee hee.....And now as the evening is approaching and peopleare popping in and outIt's time to sit out on the deckBring out that shakerPut on some tunesAnd enjoy the simple thingsGood friendsAnd a cocktail.And yes,  we stayed with the GREEN theme!But one other little member of our gang I thinkstuck her little nose in that shaker.... What do you think?Or is she just looking for that lost green cue ball?Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day all!And make sure you pop over toBeverly's  for some other treats!!

Wordless Wednesday... What does that Cat See?

Wed, 14 Mar 2012 05:45:00 +0000

In linking up with for WORDLESS WEDNESDAYI thought I would share with you my youngest of my babies...Miss Nala.(perhaps I should say, Miss Devil In Making!)I miss her terribly since I have been away from home forever now!Due to traveling from one end of the country to the otherAfter having pneumonia, my father passing, helping my mother...and yada yada yada.I am sure by now she and the rest of the bunch TOTALLY hate me for being away for so long!Anyhow, my little devil always...and I mean ALWAYS has to have her little nose in everything.And the last time my mini pirate was there...he forgot to inform MAMA CAT (moi...)That he left his little "creatures" in his bait bucket out on my deck.So, one morning I observe Miss Nala out there.   And of course I am like...hmmmmm.."What could she possibly see in there?"Not knowing the mini pirate left behind a treat for us all....And there she goes... down goes the bucket!Of Course I am thinking she is just being her looney, let me get into everything self....Until I go out and and lift the bucket and remove the lid.Florida's finest staring right up at me!Let me just say....Good for the pirate he was miles away,And good for everyone's health and safety that I was home to catch this on time...Or you would have had an absolute hysterical germ phobe mom on the loose...Along with those "creatures!"I will admit, I was nice enough to let her take a gander....But no swatting or trying to tip that bucket again until I let the little guys back outsidewhere they belong.Now... Do I dare ask..What this little devil has gotten into since I have been gone?I guess all we can do is STAY TUNED.Smiles all~xoxoCataka MAMA CAT [...]

My Daddy is Gone

Tue, 07 Feb 2012 22:28:00 +0000

RIP DADDY 01.17.1938~02.06.2012 Dad is the one who is there, always without question.He is the one who holds us all together, through good and bad.Dad is the one who loves us for who we are and all that we are.He is the one that inspired us to be who we are.Dad is the one who loves us unconditionally.  Dad is the one who chased away the shadows in the dark of night. He is the one who carried us when we could go no further.Dad is the one who guides us, even when he is lost.He is the one who leads the way to ensure the path is safe.Dad is the one whose hands hold ours to comfort us.Dad is the one whose laugh fills the room with joy. He is the one who smiles and lights up the world.Dads is the voice that echoes in my mind, to lead me on the right path.He is the one I see when I sleep.Dads is the breath that gives us all life.Dad is the one that held my mother tight, loving her through it all. He is the one that she loved more than all other loves.Dad is the one who held me strong when her journey here was over.He is the one who stood strong through all of the pain and tears.Dad is the one that comforts my sorrow, even in his hour of deepest pain.Dad is the one whose hands were callous from work, whose touch is soft and gentle. He is the one whose heart is tender, whose spirit is loving and kind.Dad is the one whose soul is pure and untainted.His are the hands that I hold to comfort him in his hour of fear.Dad is the one that I love and is part of my soul, always.I will always love and miss you Daddy.xoxoCatherine  [...]

A Butterfly Garden Wedding

Thu, 20 Oct 2011 20:25:00 +0000

Well, I told you that we have a REAL WEDDING ON the brain!But this post is kind of different....My niece (on my husbands side) has a thing for butterflies.Due to the fact that my husbands and my sister-in-laws late mother did....And they truly believe that whenever a butterfly is hovering around them that "that" butterfly is either their mom..or one that mom sent.In all seriousness...the BUTTERFLY is a huge symbolic thing for the entire family.So when thinking of unique ideas... I was like,  BAM!!! The BUTTERFLY!So here are a few things I dug up for flower arrangements, outdoor butterfly themed weddings.Now of course this would be if she decided to go beachside for her special day.Now another interesting fact is that the Butterfly has long been a symbol of rebirth and transformation.A butterfly wedding theme is the perfect way to symbolize new life as the married couple.Now some interesting ideas for butterflies in your bouquet....Now some ideas for centerpieces.....( ( I love this one!)Now for the Garden of Butterflies...Beautiful isn't it?And now my favorite so far...Now this is Gorgeous!!!So hopefully this might spark something, I know if and when her mom see's this... my niece may not have any other option!!!  :)I leave you with an old Irish Blessing:May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun.And find your shoulder to light on.To bring you luck, happiness and riches.Today, tomorrow and beyond. xoxoCat Linking up with Cottage Flora Thursday's[...]

Mermaid Fashion Through the Years

Mon, 12 Sep 2011 04:37:00 +0000

Thanks to CricketI have developed a passion for Mermaids.I think this post pretty much says it all.In the fashion industry it is one stylethat never seems to die.Even into the boho chic period.The mermaid look will always remain a classic.A timeless beauty.And perhaps we shall wear this in our hair.And the girls may sway this out seaside.or after the soireeAnd just maybe you will find thisunderneath the Bride.xoxoCatMosaic MondaysBlue Mondays[...]
