A Beautiful Thing...

I found this old crib at one of our few local thrift stores...for only $32...can ya'll believe it?! there were a couple of women circling it while I stood considering...
so I hefted it up (it is very light, considering the overall dimensions) and walked around the store totin' it until a nice man asked if he could sit it up by the register for me...I think he had Visions of Me Wreakin' Havoc in the place...and I would say his visions were probably correct...



its intended purpose is to be a place for the cats to hang out so they don't all try to sleep on me, beside me, on the nightstand next to me when the weather cools down...any time I sit still for more than a couple of minutes, I become a Multiple Cat Magnet...

this is why I no longer wear Black...



so far, I've only seen 1 cat at a time in there...I think this is a case of King of the Mountain-cum- Crib...whoever gets into the crib first defends it against all comers...



(close up of the pretty detailing on the legs)
and here is a shot of the beautiful Man Chair DH discovered at the same shop... ummmmmmm, boyyyyyyy...mighty fine, mighty fine...sigh...this is one of those times I had to browbeat myself into graciously acquiescing as DH's name is on the mortgage too...

How fun that crib is for your kitties!! Did you see my post, where I mosaicked a vintage doll bed for a pet bed? Great minds think alike - are we are always thinking aren't we!

see you there! said...

The crib is adorable but it looks to me like the Man Chair might be more of a cat magnet.

Ahh the man chair...you could always paint it white or black maybe. The crib is so cute - I can just see all the critters snuggled up in there. That was a great idea to get it for them!

I don't think the man chair is so bad :O), if the cushions don't match make some great new covers for them and then make or buy a couple of great throw pillows! Heck you could even paint the wood if you wanted to. I like the man chair :O)...

The kitties seem to like it too LOL..

That crib is so cute, Sheila! Hope it works out for the kitties and you!

My package arrived yesterday. Cute things! I have some with my cloches in the breakfast room. The picks I have in my fall tree, in the foyer. They're great!

The chair isn't that bad. Love the crib. Surely, as it gets colder, the fb's will want to cuddle together.
