I have an affinity for stained glass

I don’t really have anything to blog about! I went to a flea market over the weekend but forgot my camera at school! Doh! LOL I will share those pictures next time.

Well a while back at Marshalls I saw the most awesome stained glass panel. There were two of them. I was so close to getting one because it’s a pretty urn with flowers! So chic. But upon closer inspection they were broken! Why? Because the people at Marshalls can’t stock their shelves right! They put all this heavy metal gardening stuff on top of these panels! I was so bummed and mad at Marshalls. Here are the pictures I took of them though.

Pretty huh! I love stained glass. My grandma had a stained glass panel in her house that was a wine bottle pouring into a glass LOL. I think they are so fun and whimsical.  Since I have nothing else to blog about and no other pictures I will share some of my animals LOL.

My cat Popoki (Cat in Hawaiian) likes to drink out of the sink LOL.  She is the most loving cat I’ve ever had. Just wants to cuddle all the time.

This is Digit and Mr. B. Digit is a miniature long haired Dachshund, Mr. B is a Yorkshire Terrier. Digit looks just like Maggie over at Daisy Cottage. She likes to do this weird thing where she rolls on her back and fans the air with her paws LOL. We call it kitty paws. That is what she is doing in the picture.

This is Graycee, but we call her Pinky because she has a little pink nose and ears.  LOL She is our little trouble maker! She is always bringing us “gifts” ew. But she is uber cute.

Our doxie does "kitty paws" too. :)

I would stalk the stained glass and when it goes to cheap clearence buy it and then repair it.

LOVE your furbabies!! Oh my gosh, so, so sweet!! We had a little doggie who did the paw thing - we said it looked like she was praying! That was our Gizzy Girl that I posted about back in March... Your babies are just too cute for words!.... Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage

The stained glass is sooo pretty...too bad they broke it...stupid Marshalls!!!

I love your pet collection;)!!! Your puppie is toooo precious!!! We just brought our little Cooper home from the pet hospital today. He was being neutered.(spelling?) Poor little guy!!! We are hoping it helps him calm down a little bit. He has some macho issues or at least he used to...lol!!!

How are things in Cali? I hope all is well!!! Have a wonderful day!!!

Awww, love the little animals. My small cat is trying to figure out how to drink from the sink but she's still scared.

Hello! Huh! I always thought Marshall's was like TJ Maxx and Ross. They took things from other stores that were "irregular" or damaged in some way. Maybe they were broken when they got them? Just a thought! I'd go back and say "Look - this is ruined, it's all broken, I'll take it off your hands . . . " Who knows? They just might discount it further and let you have it really cheap! Like my husband's grandmother always said "It's the squeak that gets the oil!"
Love the pictures of the pets. My friend Joy has a long-haired dachshund- her name is Duchess! They are just the cutest!
Have a great day!!! Karen

Thank you for taking pictures of the stain glass. I love stain glass panels they are awesome.

Have a really fantastic week.

Hi Alli,
Thank you!
Love the stained glass, too bad they were broken. I don't think people that work at Marshall's are all that careful.
Love the animal photos, so cute.
My daughter has 4 cats.
Have a great day!
