May you be full of wonder this weekend.

What does your Wardrobe Say About You?

What does your Wardrobe Say About You?

And what items in your closet say more than your t-shirts?

My husband, Greg, loves wearing t-shirts with funny sayings. He loves it when people crack up reading them. Some of his favorites are no longer with us, because he wore them out. He used to have one that said in Asian-style script: Ho Lee Chit. Another said: Grow Your Own Dope. Plant a Politician.

But he still has a couple of others that he wears a lot.

This one has the drawback of being long-winded:


And I almost didn’t post the one below because of recent events. Realize that I’m married to a guy who likes to plink at tin cans out in the desert, not a homicidal maniac.


And here are some of my favorites. My NaNoWriMo shirt from 2015:


And this one needs no explanation:


And here are some Greg bought for me. I used to be a music teacher:




I checked to see what the good people at Etsy.com could add to my collection. Here are some I’d love to own. Click on the links for more information.

Eye roll

Say what

Beautiful design. With a slight change, this could be a depressing writer’s shirt. How often do I have an absolutely brilliant scene in my head, but the words I put on the page fall flat.


You knew I had to find a unicorn shirt, didn’t you?


I love this photographer’s shirt on so many levels.


Good teacher shirt. For me, I’d have to add singers, percussionists, dancers, and recorder players to the list, because that’s how we spent a lot of our instruction time in my elementary music room.

Oh, yeah. Here’s a good music teacher shirt, not on Etsy.



I love the Malala quote, but I also love that the seller donates 100% of the proceeds of this shirt to charity.


This is one of my favorite Scriptures.

The Any Message Here t-shirt can be found here.

The Cat’s Meow

The Cat’s Meow

We’re visiting Etsy today, that great online marketplace where you can find something for anyone, even the crazy cat lady in your life. Today’s focus is cat jewelry. I selected only items that I would be happy to wear. (By the way, feel free to buy me any or all.)

No feline-loving female should have to live without a cat necklace. (Click the description for more information. Click the images to see enlargements and captions.)

Stylized cat. Seated cat. Origami cat face.

Gold cat. Hanging-by-tail cat. Pick-a-stone cat.

Folded cat. Teeny cat. Art cat.

Stretching cat. Hanging-by-paws cat. Sleeping cat. 2D cat.

No self-respecting cat lady is happy unless her earlobes are decorated with cats.

Ceramic studs. Mismatched cats. Ceramic dangles.

Bracelets for cat lady wrists:

Basket cats. Denim cat.

And I don’t know why, but this one reminds me of the Deathly Hallows symbol:

And finally, a ring that can be made to your catty specifications:

As I said earlier, I like ALL of these pieces, but my very favorites are the origami cat face and the art cat necklaces.

What about you? Do you like cats, or live with some? (We currently have two, but have owned as many as four at one time. Five of our former kitties have passed on.) Does any of this jewelry particularly appeal to you? Share in the comments below.
