Kitty cats and scarves

I saw five kitties today. And I wanted to take them all home. One was running across the street and nearly got run over by some idiot in his fancy fast car, I really wanted to throw a rock at the guy and yell "Kitties don't know how to use crosswalks jerk!"

Only I would say something other than jerk, but my family reads this so....

All the kittyness was leading up to this gift from my grandma, a darling squeaky toy from the 30s or 40s, it's soooooo cute!

*Squeak squeak!*

And earlier I was browsing
Notcouture and came across this cool Hermes site which shows girls around the world wearing their Hermes scarves in different ways. Even though I don't have an Hermes scarf, I do have lots of pretty silk scarves that rarely see the light of day, so the site inspired me to play around with a few. Since I didn't pin curl my hair last night I went with a turban style, which you can learn how to do here (It's very easy!).

I'm glad I'm not the only one who wants to throw rocks at "jerks"! Your scarf looks so fancy and I love the striped top too!

Aw, I love the kitty. I'm sure I would say something other than 'jerk', too. ;] And I love the scarf! It looks great.

This is a great look for you Solanah (especially because we don't get to see you in pants very often) - I especially love your moss green shoes

Kitten fever reigns on the blogosphere! At least 75% of the last bunch of posts I read were about cats or kittens. Which is always a good thing! Yay!

Ace look with the scarf! (although I'm surprised you didn't go for the "kitty-cat" look from the video ;)

How do you keep the back of the scarf (round the nape of your neck) in place whilst you're tying the top? I always find mine slips upwards as I tie the knot.

What a fantastic little video! I love using scarves as a turban, but this really adds to how creative you can be with one! Thanks!

I like it all but admit the cat is particularly fantastic! I just want to give her a hug. :)

My two little felines want to say: thank you for consider to throw a rock and yell at him. And: you look awesome. I like your style. (and that kitty, though my cats are scared of everything that squeaky..)
