Good news/bad news

The good news is that middle daughter Mary came to visit yesterday without much warning, which was the cause of the bad news, that after getting back from Manna there wasn't time to write a blog post before she arrived. 

Today after she and Mr. B both left for work, a rare fit of extended cleaning energy appeared, so much of my morning was spent in the cats' room, sanitizing that space. During the process I came across a favorite thrifting find from a few years back and decided it needs to be out and appreciated. 

It is the vintage wicker cat carrier basket discovered at the Bering Methodist sale for the fantastic price of $6.00. 

Now it's in the library on the little drop-leaf table from Sand Dollar, holding--what else?--cat books!

In case you're interested, the titles in it are:

Dora Bell's Village Cats by Nina Epton
A Snowflake in Her Hand by Samantha Mooney
The Gray-Nosed Kitten by Miriam E. Mason
Pinky Pye by Eleanor Estes
Julia's Cats by Patricia Barey & Therese Burson
The Church Mice Spread Their Wings by Graham Oakley
The Church Mice in Action by Graham Oakley
The Church Mice at Christmas by Graham Oakley
Raining Cats and Donkeys by Doreen Tovey
Cats in the Belfry by Doreen Tovey
Double Trouble by Doreen Tovey 

What the verdict? Cute enough to be out and visible or not? 

Have a terrific Tuesday.
