A nice hot cup of tea is probably one of my favourite things; so when I saw this Mugtopper I had to have it. Promising to keep tea hotter for longer, and with a cat perched on the top, it is a sweet little item. I bought this in The Range and it was under £2. I am afraid I do not remember the exact amount (and they are not on the website) but it was reasonable.
Here it is:

While looking through some old pictures my dad came across the 3 below.
Perfect bookend poses … And I promise these were not forced poses.
It got me thinking about what actual cat bookends are available to buy …
A quick google search and I had found lots - I am a massive fan of Etsy and here is the selection they have: “Cat Bookends” search on Etsy.
For the past 3 years I have made calendars for my family. It has become a tradition now and they all expect and I enjoy making them.
The first year I did pictures to fit the months so Jess in rabbit ears for April (Easter), Marly in the garden sunbathing for August (Summer), etc etc. This was really easy to create.
Second year I picked pictures of hectic scenes and “photoshopped” Marly and Jess in each one. The aim was a “Where’s Wally” feel. This took some time and effort but it was enjoyable to do and added another level of fun to the calendar. My favourite was the Disney scene …
Jess is by the princess castle (of course) top right and Marly is ice skating with Thumper bottom right.
