It's hard to believe that we are nearing the end of April (well, that flew by, didn't it??) but here we are. Right now, I'd like to hurry up May & the first part of June and then have July and the first part of August last a.very.very.long.time. Summer vacation can't come soon enough...! Onward to the fun things that have caught my fancy in this quickly moving month....

Old Movies - I have been loving old movies recently, especially anything from the 1940s. Have I told you that if I could go back in time, it would be to the 40s, without a doubt? I started watching movies from this list that I somehow missed in my old-movie-loving youth. My favorite so far is The More The Merrier, which can be found on youtube if you do some searching (and don't mind watching it in 10 minute increments). Very cute, very funny, lots of chemistry and a fabulous 1940s apartment that I'd move into any day. Are there any old movies, especially from the 40s, that I need to see?
Catios - Did you all know that this is a thing? It all started as an observation that we should build a little screened cat box onto one of our windows because Dexter loves to be outside, but it's not safe with all of the birds of prey that live around here. Something like this:
I was trying to describe what I was talking about to Glenn and looked up 'screened porch for cats' in Google. Oh my gosh. It turns out that this is a new thing for cats, called "Catios"! Not just a box attached to a window, but entire jungle-gym type structures that take up a yard! My favorite is this one, that is like a tree house for cats:
Style On Target - You guys know that I love cute clothes on a budget and I really love finding blogs that give me great ideas on how to find them. Style on Target is one that I just discovered. She posts cute outfits almost every day that feature at least one item from Target as well as pieces from other affordable stores. And -- BONUS -- she posts updates on weekly sales happening at favorites like Loft, Old Navy, J. Crew, The Gap and (of course) Target.
That is it for links. I've been spending my time watching old movies, catching up on PBS period dramas and gardening. I'm itching to go to another flea market, but I don't think that there is another happening until the first week of May. I'll keep you updated!
