~~Here Came Trouble with a Capital "T" ~~

Cute Cute!

I'm VERY Cute but I'm TROUBLE.....Cookie says so!

I'm "black & white" just like Cookie!

He's JUST A BABY in a BLANKIE - gotta love 'em!

Cookie & Cabo wondering WHY IS HE HERE?

Just cause I'm cute!

We have a new "baby" at our house - & his name should be "Trouble" with a capital "T" but I call him Cosmo ~~ doesn't he look SO innocent? Most of you who read this blog think kattz*cottage could be all about cats! But I have to admit I'm a dog lover - have never really loved cats that much. But for some reason I've tried to make a cat connection since we've lived in the country. The sad fact is maybe because we are in the country they always disappear. They are grabbed up by something unknown so I always say "I can't have ANYMORE CATS" because I always lose them.

But here he is - this little kitten so very CUTE! I got him at 6 weeks old in a Wal-Mart parking lot! He's a big ball of crazy energy, bouncing off the walls, pouncing on Cabo & Cookie who are fit to be tied & wish he had never bounced through the front door! The pictures show it all......two little chihuahuas who's world has come unwound! We will do our best to love & tame him & keep him safe at kattz*cottage.........& eventually Cookie & Cabo & Cosmo will be good buddies!

THANK YOU to everyone helped me with my "what is it's!" I appreciate all your help & because of internet problems & being way toooooo busy I haven't sent answers to everyone that commented. Thanks to all of you though ~~ & especially to Shirlee & Debbie who sent awards my way. I appreciate all of you so much for your comments & just for visiting kattz*cottage!

HAPPY SUMMER! Kathy xoxoxo

~~What IS it?~~

~~Just lookin' for a little help from my friends! I have some things that I'm trying to identify! Some of them I bought to put on ebay but haven't listed them because I don't know what they ARE! Any ideas anybody? Let me know if you know what any of them are!......OR what they could be turned into!

This is a heavy cast iron 4" Rooster that has a screw in the bottom - not like a lamp finial but must have come off of something???!!??

This is a vintage perfume that I KNOW I've seen even when I was a little girl -- old fashioned couple on top of lid - criss cross design on the bottle - it has NO markings on it at all......surely someone knows what this is!!

This is a porcelain handpainted 2 1/2" cylinder that is open at the top & bottom - has felt inside & gold metal around the top - I have no idea what it's for?!?

This is another little silver metal cylinder only an inch tall - has raised designs & has a small hole on top & larger opening on the bottom.....what is it?!?

I paid a dollar for this & planned to re-paint & use it but I'm not sure what to do with it a plate rack? And what goes in the bottom? If it's a plate rack I don't really want to hang it on the wall so is there something else it can be used for?

I've sold French Presses on ebay before but these appear different....or are they? The teapot has a press type plunger but the coffeepot just has the filter & lid with no press inside. Are they another type of French Press?......

This is a stoneware pot made like an angel food cake or bundt pan but it has a lid ~ I have no idea what it's used for!?? To bake something I'm sure but surely it has a specific purpose? There are no makers markings on it......

I will love to hear any ideas even if they are inventive & other than what these things really are! Creativity can be better than logical!

HAPPY 4th of JULY to everyone ~ have a Safe & Fun Holiday! xoxoxox Kathy
