Food, Friendship and Fabulous Finds

 What a Fabulous Day sharing time with our Friend Kathy.  The photo above is a view from her beautiful property.  It is so picture perfect and serene. She lives out in the country and it is always wonderful visiting her!  Our day started with visiting one of our favorite Antique stores...The Antique Emporium, as it is called.
The owner sets out wine to share with all of his guests so when you visit, you can enjoy a glass of wine while browsing.  Coffee is also available and sometimes sweet treats. We just love it there.
I thought you might too, so I took several photo's so that you could also see how fun this place is!













If you want to know what I brought home....watch my video below where I share all of the fabulous finds I came home with♥


After our visit to The Emporium, Kathy and I met up with Jimi back at her house and we enjoyed a yummy dinner toghether.
The perfect way to  spend a day...Food, Friendship and Fabulous Finds .

A Time of Sadness

For those of you that follow me on Facebook, you know that my Familiar and Precious Mr. Jackson passed away on July 26, 2016.  Jimi and I are so Heartbroken over his passing.  He was having some issues due to Feline Diabetes and Kidney Disease.  His medical bills that we had incurred prior, were so far out of our reach and we still have a long way to go to pay them off, however, some wonderful, loving and kind people sent us and gave donations to help us. Our Hearts are so touched and grateful for such generosity♥  Let me take this time to say Thank you again to those of you that donated, you are so loved by us!!!! Jackson was actually scheduled to see his doctor on the day that he passed again, in hopes to help what the doctor felt was treatable with meds. On that day, he did not greet us in the morning as he always did and we just knew our lives would never be the same. We found our Mr. Jackson had passed in his sleep. We are so very grateful that he was at home when he passed a sour home, his home was the only place he knew since we adopted him years ago.  It has been a week already and I miss him so very much!!! I feel him with me though in all that I do. 
Jimi and I decided to have him cremated.  I just spoke to the vet and his ashes are ready for us.  I will be creating a very special Urn for him as I had done for our Cat Leela. He will take his place on our Alter/Mantle where he will be remembered and honored by us.

Thank you for listening and if you had left me a comment on my Previous post in Re. to the mad Tea Party, I had not personally responded due to getting through this last week.
I did however leave a general comment back to everyone who joined my Tea Party.
Thank you for your readership and leaving such beautiful and loving comments.
Much Love and Many Blessings,
♥♥♥

P.S. In honor of Mr. Jackson I decided to create Hand~sewn Medicine Bags filled with Harvested Catnip from my Apothecary Garden as he absolutely loved his Catnip.  It was our Ritual to brush him with his special fur brush and then after grooming, he would receive his catnip. 
This little ritual created a very special bond and I believe that it will for others who enjoy spending time with their cats.
check out our community page "The Kitty Committee" on Facebook
https://www.facebook.com/TheKittyCommittee/?fref=ts

Feel free to message me if you would like to order a Hand`sewn Medicine Bag of Catnip.  You can see our note about it here: https://www.facebook.com/notes/the-kitty-committee/the-pampered-pussycat-shoppe-love-offering-from-the-kitty-committee-and-milady-l/1050683415014020

Our hope from the sales of these bags is to one day help other families with medical expenses for their felines.

Tea Time Madness

Hello Dear Friends...so let's begin the Madness, shall we?
There once was a girl who had lots of curls...she said a prayer with a blessings candle and asked for not more than she could handle.
Well along came the Hatter and sat down beside her...

and then all of a sudden...the Magic Began!
"Well Hello, said the man....Please, give me your Hand!
With that I said....where shall we go? Oh please I do want to know!
He said with a smile...after a little while, "We shall go to a Tea, A Mad Tea if you Please!"
Oh yes, I do please...do you mean you and me?
He then said...."Yes, as a matter of fact and I shall have you back...just in time for for dinner and wine!
Ok then,  that will be fine, I said....I am ready...as ready as I shall ever be!
So, I began the adventure....
It was time!
Time to begin this Life's Adventure!

For Life is a Special Occasion...don't ya think?

It was time....time for me to do this thing...It was indeed Tea Time!

One year ago, this dream of mine, to open up a tea Shoppe, manifested itself into my reality!
I will never forget the time when it was beginning to appear that it was really going to happen and I regressed into having some insecure feelings. I said to Jimi, "I can't do this." He said, Dena, YES YOU CAN."
I am so glad that I listened to him and the voice inside that said to get out of your own way..just do it!

What a journey this has been....there are many emotional and physical connections associated in this ride. Besides deciding to and becoming a Mother, this is one of the Hardest things I have ever done in my life thus far, but I am so Glad that I did. No regrets....Life is a Journey in which we must travel, learn and grow from.
It is all about taking what you find to be Impossible and making it possible.

Thank you Jimi and all of YOU for your love and support.

It is my true desire to continue this journey, hoping to Inspire others to follow their dreams no matter how big or small.
As I have always said, "All things are possible with Love."
Please Join me for Tea on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/theteacupandgrounds  I would Love it if you "Liked" our page so that you don't miss a single Tea Time Event!

It is very much appreciated!!!

So, back to the Hatter all and things that matter....this was not a dream but something that I had totally foreseen.  My future in fact is very much in tact....The Hatter, he delivered, his promise was not withered.
He got me back in time for Dinner and Wine.
Although you know, this is how the story goes.....It is always,

plenty of it for both YOU and ME!

Just a reminder to stop by and Visit Miss Vanessa at http://www.afancifultwist.typepad.com/ for more Tea Time Goodness!!
