A View From my World

TJ, from Humble Origins, tagged me with a fun request. She asked that I post a photo with the view from my bathroom window. So, as I fought off my very "vicious" kitties, I climbed up onto my bathroom counter to take this photo. I think my kitties were very excited to see me in a new and intriguing place, hence, they decided to attack the camera, just for excitement's sake.

I was having so much fun, that I decided to head downstairs to take a picture of a cabinet which hangs on our kitchen wall. If you look at the top shelf on the right hand side, there is an adorable, little piggy who is looking at the camera. He was made by TJ with her own little hands! I won him in a bidding war on Ebay. His name is Jed. I adore him. He adores me.

While I was on my photographic journey, I found my favorite cat sitting on top of our piano. His name is Arnold, as in Arnold Catzinieger. He has a very delicate "meow", so we thought we should give him a masculine name. We adopted him from the animal shelter on the day that he was supposed to be put to sleep. He is a gorgeous kitty with a very interesting personality. He loves to pose for pictures. I love taking pictures. It's a very symbiotic relationship.

For those of you who live in cold weather climates, I decided that a little burst of color might help to brighten your day, and remind you that Spring is coming! The bloom is from a Camellia plant that resides in our yard. It makes me happy just to look at it.(and yes, this photo was taken today)

TJ, thanks for tagging me with this fun project. Obviously I used a bit of "creative license" while doing this, but I wanted to share more, once I got going. For those of you who have not had the pleasure of "meeting" TJ, head on over to Humble Origins when you have a moment. She is such a caring, supportive person who has a wonderful sense of humor. She is truly a blessing to anyone who is lucky enough to know her.

I will be passing this along upon TJ's request, so when you find a tag asking you to show us the view from your bathroom window, don't be surprised!

May we all be lucky enough to share different views with good friends!

Debbie, I loved this post! I felt like I was in your house and you were showing me some treasures! :-) Happy day for me! I love the cat (and his name, oh how funny, I laughed out loud!) and your piggy story (you love him and he loves you! LOL!). And of course, love the view from your bathroom window, TO DIE FOR! And your burst of spring color made me so happy!

Love you,

...Hee,hee! Thank you Debbie! You are the BEST! Love the view from your bathroom window - that pool is to die for! And your decor is so pretty - just like I had imagined it! It was so good to see "Jed" again - yes, he does adore you as do I! :o)

...Love the kitty cats too! Thanks for being such a sport and taking part in my silly request - this was fun! You're such an Angel!

...Blessings... :o)

The flower pic damn near killed me, as I sit here being buried with almost a foot of new snow. UGH!!

I doubt I will ever see a flower bloom again!

Can't wait to move out of Maine.

Why am I not surprised all your views are lovely? I love the redchecked shelf best. Thank you so much for sharing... how we fill our spaces says so much about who we are... I love it! I am still struggling with this sick house but have lots to say to you. Just didn't want you to think I had forgotten! xxoo

Oh Debbie, thanks for that flower--just what I was needing on this gray, somewhat gloomy Minnesota day! And Arnold is very, very handsome! Whatever would we do without our kitties? I, too, have a boy kitty with a delicate meow and a glorious tail! Now if only I could get myself a pool like yours :)! Thanks for the day brighteners!

Gentle hug...

great pictures Deb...thanks so much for sharing. I love your pool, it is beautiful. The red shelves are gorgeous and I love the pig!!!

I found a rose in my garden looked pretty sad and pitiful...but it was a rose. It is also a reminder to me that I need to prune my roses still!!!

Hope all is well for you...I love it when you visit me and leave me a makes my day!!

Alison said...

I have something for you on my site!!

That was fun! Loved the tour...more please!!
I have a 100 yr. old farm house w/ 1 bathroom off the kitchen (I hate about holding it for the right time!) that used to be an awesome pantry until indoor plumbing came about. No view, just grey sky and a very scary Mock Orange bush tendrils tapping on the glass.

I love your back yard and what an awesome bathroom window!!!! It was fun seeing things from your perspective. It was like a little sampling of what it is like to be Debra...and you know what...I want to be just like you!

Hey My Dear Friends,

I am out of town, but will be home tonight! You are all so special to me and I wanted you to know it!

Big hugs,

Alison said...

Hi Deb,
Just checking in on you to see how you are doing.
Hope you had a great weekend.
