For The Love Of Animals Adopt.

(Kiwi on the left, and Sparta on the right) One year ago today, I had the privilege of adopting Kiwi and Sparta, from the Cayman Islands Humane Society.  Animals bring incredible joy to one’s life.  I had the pleasure of raising Kiwi since he was just a kitten and Sparta, when he was already a year old.  Both are absolute darlings.  My life has been greatly enriched by the unconditional love, my boys King Kiwi & Sir Sparta give everyday. When you adopt an animal from a local animal shelter you aren’t taking home a pet, rather, you are bringing home a new addition to your family.  Growing up I have always been blessed to have cats and dogs.  I cannot image what life would be like without having pets.  Animals have the biggest hearts, they are compassionate, love unconditionally and will leave a lasting impression on your heart.  It is heartbreaking to know that there are hundreds of cats and dogs around the world in need of a forever home.  Thankfully, there are animal …

Last Minute Pumpkin Ideas

  Sparta was helping while I did some pumpkin decorating. Some last minute pumpkin decorating ideas, I chose not to do a traditional scary pumpkin for Halloween.  Personally, they just creep me out.   Black Lace Pumpkin Simply done, all you need to do is repurpose some black lace and wrap it around the pumpkin. I used leftover lace, as a table runner. The Fairy Tale Pumpkin I stuck some rhinestones onto the pumpkin, and used a gold metallic marker to write the inscription.  There you have it, a Cinderella themed pumpkin.
