100th Post & Giveaway!

Today, I am celebrating my 100th post on this blog! I have been blogging for three years now (want to see where I came from? My old blog! ) And while I'd love to go out for drinks with all of you, and share a Tres Leche cake made by Cecelia (the best cake baker in Athens!),  instead I am going to celebrate by hosting my very first giveaway!

I have an incredibly talented, hilarious, and all-around amazing friend and co-worker, Cathy Dailey. She says, "I create colorful stylized images of cats, dogs, and birds, using colored pencil on paper, recycled wood and found objects. My necklaces and magnets are all one of a kind originals that I make by drawing and painting on wood." She started her "Kitty butt" collection in 2003 with her turquoise kitty butts. Now, I'm not a "cat" person, but I love her work. Her Etsy is Kitty Butt. Where does she find her inspiration? Her own two kitties of course!

  Meet Zuki and Sonny

I have had the honor of meeting them, and they are too sweet! So for my VERY FIRST giveaway in celebration of 100 posts on this blog, you have the chance to win a Cathy Dailey original magnet:

When I was little, we had a Grand Piano. And if we ever forgot to close the lid, our cat, Chimney Sweep, would hop up and walk along the keys! I guess she loved music.

I just checked out Kitty Butt, and it had me laughing. I especially like the owl greeting cards.

Those are so cute! Funny animal story? Hmm... One time we were dog sitting and Sean took the dog out to potty. It didn't go so Sean got frustrated and brought him back inside where he decided to pee all over the floor not 5 minutes later! Sean didn't think it was too funny!

I am a follower, loved seeing your ideas.

My precious Cat Sadie Lynn just loves to hide behind the freezer door waiting for someone to drop a cube of ice, she will chase it all over and carry it to a hiding place. she is just so precious, she has also decided to take over my antique bassinet in my guest room as her new bed.

I just love those pictures, hope I can be one of your winners.

I'm a follower, and my blog,, is chock full of animal drama. Mostly, they keep me awake and pee on my stuff!

Hooray! I'm a follower now! I enjoy reading your blog and I never can figure out how you have the time to do everything you do! You are truly an inspiration.
I have been a Cathy Dailey fan for about 8 years now- Kittybutt is one of my favorite images of all times!
My family had German Shepherds when I was growing up, and the matriarch (named Princess) would drag me across the yard by my hoodie. Back and forth. There wasn't a lot to do in the country, I guess.
