May Giveaway ~

I'm getting ready to leave for Cali, heading to the Art, Paperie & Pleasantries show

May 2 & 3 at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA


I'm so excited because as you all know, I love Cali! My sister will be helping me, my oldest and dearest friend is going to try and come up to help too, I get to see a bunch of my Cali friends, and new ones I will finally meet in person, and last but not least ~ can you stand the lineup of artists who will be showing...pinch me!

But before I leave, it's time for a Giveaway ~
Leave a comment on this post telling me what is strange, unique, unusual, about this photo of Rosie

OK, she'll give you another hint...

Alright Rose, that's enough, you're making it way too easy for them!

What's the prize you ask?
A surprise assortment of goodies handpicked by me, with a little help from Rosie

Leave a comment on this post, and I'll be back May 9th to announce the winner ~ best of luck!

xo Heidi
P.S.
If you are coming to the show, please be sure to stop by and say hello, I'd love to meet you!

Joanna {sweet finds} said...

Hmmm... let's see, is it the fact that she is missing a leg??? :)

Have a great time in Cali. I loved my visit when I went down in March. The Cali girls are definitely a hoot. I can't wait to see who you hang out with.

hugs, Joanna

Joanna {sweet finds} said...

I was looking at your side bar, "where to find me"... when will you be at Paper Crown (OK)?
(I'm hoping for a future date since you have it listed after
SB '09)

It's only 3.5 hrs. from Dallas. I wondering if I can get a group of Texas Bellas together for a quick road trip.

xoxo, Joanna

Rosie is sitting right here beside me ~ I told her you all are so smart ~ lol!

Today is jam packed with the final details of packing, or I should say cleaning up (after me) and trying to find my suitcase...

Talk to you when I return!

Lori said...

what a cutie:) i had a kitty once with the same marking on her face...i see she is missing one of her legs too...have fun in cali!!!

Caryn Lynn said...

Oh your kitty has three legs. It reminds me of a sad event in my childhood when my cat had a litter of kittens and one was born without a leg sad to say it didn't make it. Glad to see that your cat seems to be doing just fine!

Cindy (JunqueArt) said...

Awww she only has 3 legs. Have a wonderful time at the show and we want to see pictures!!!

paperbird said...

What a sweet three legged kitty- she seems not to mind that she is missing a leg or maybe she knows what a blessing it is to have three legs!
Have fun in California and good luck at your show- wish I was attending.

Enchantments and Giggles said...

Not only three legs, but she looks more than a littel irritated in the last photo! Maybe she didn't want to be bothered.

Enchantments and Giggles said...

And, Rosie also looks like she could be related to my Mr. Kitty - who is missing part of his tail!

mindy said...

that she has 3 legs but yet seems very well balanced and unfazed by it thanks for the giveaway

Vintage by Crystal said...

I certainly didn't notice at first...I thought maybe she had some kittens in her belly...but she seems to get along just fine with three legs! :) So pretty too....enjoying the spring sunshine! And good luck at the show! I'm so jealous! :)

Jill said...

I see as do the others that she is missing a leg--we have a cat missing her tail. Somehow she broke it and it didn't heal properly so we had to have it amputated. As soon as the fur grows back she'll look fine but for now, kind of funny looking!
Thanks for the giveaway chance!

cdziuba said...

I love your cat, and mine too! Thanks for the giveaway.

malleycc said...

What a pretty cat. Three legs?

Nancy said...

Is it really that she has three legs? Have a good trip.
Nancy

Valarie said...

Oh, that is truly amazing. A sweet little 3 legged cat. I bet there isn't anything that she can't do!! Have a wonderful time in Cali. xxoo

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

I hope I could be that happy if I ended up missing a limb! She looks perfectly comfortable and living the good life!

A give away? A give away?! My favorite thing! LOL

Shabby Cottage Collectibles said...

Poor baby only has 3 legs! Doesn't seem to cause her any problems. Very sweet kitty. Warm wishes, Esther

techyone said...

Awww, she has three legs. I'm so glad she is content. I had a special kitty who was blind and he was happier than my 'no problems' cats. He was sure-footed, got around fine and never seemed to mind. Meanwhile his brother was clumsy and always falling off of everything he climbed.

Le_Vintage said...

I wish i was closer so I could check out the art show that sounds like so much fun! That little kitten can still play happily with only three legs, she such a trooper! This giveaway is so fun- I just love all you're treats!

Jill Elaine said...

Rosie only has one front leg! Was she born that way?
Amazing how animals adapt.
Have fun, and a safe trip.
Jill

Kathieao said...

I love the idea of no glue,
you can change it for the season, soon it will have sand and shells, and then who knows, When I have seen something like this before, I alway think
"Now where do I have room to store this"
Thank you for the great idea. Kathieao

maminka girl- Loribeth Robare said...

pretty three-legged kitty. Looking forward to seeing you on "A Year of Color"

mrs.mommyy said...

she seems to be eyeing the can of tuna you are holding waiting for you to pop the top- she is beautiful and seems to handle the fact she is not like the rest just fine..3 legs but it does not phase her/
have a fun trip

Anonymous said...

I guess the fact that Rosie has 3 legs is the subject. She seems not to mind at all ~ very adaptable. :-)
Hope you have a wonderful trip! There's just no place like Cali.

Pat

Chris said...

I actuallly looked at the top photo thinking that Rosie had her leg tucked up or something - then I realized it isn't there. One of my cats was hit by a car and had a broken leg - it's amazing how fast he could get around using just 3 until it healed. thanks for the chance to win and thanks for your tutorial on year of color

Melissa said...

Times like this make me wish I still lived in California. Rosie looks sweet even with only three legs. Have a great time in CA!

Serendipit-Us said...

Hi Heidi~ Aside from her missing leg, she looks like a ball of fire :-)

Travel safely and HAVE FUN!

jacquerose said...

I see that she has three legs, but she looks like she is a very happy young lady!

luckygirlgifts said...

hi,I love your baskets for the swap, both of them are precious.
Now, about your pretty kitty. Well, as everyone said, she has 3 legs. But, I think the unusual thing is probably that she doesn't have some animal or other in her clutches. She looks like a fierce little hunter.
Happy May Day!!

~Becca~Bluebird Rose said...

She is a beauty, and doesn't seem to miss the other leg -- she knows she's pretty!
:)

tattwo said...

It doesn't look like Rosie misses that front leg one little bit. How wonderful that humans and animals can adapt so easily.

scrap-n-away said...

I have to agree it looks like she only has three legs and is enjoying the wonderfully warm weather!

Mia J. said...

A three legged cat. She looks really sweet.

Hope Malott said...

she's sweet! with her three legs! Have fun in california!

Stacey said...

My brother's cat was missing a leg also, and she lived to be 21 years old! Her toughest challenge was trying to swat at the doggies she loved to chase. Thanks for the giveaway.

Maggie.F said...

OMG, A 3-leg cat ,right?

Elizabeth said...

Rosie has three legs and beautiful markings. I had a kitty named boots that had those same markings when I was a child. My current kitty, Peaches, has markings that look like a swirly creaamsicle.

What a beautiful three-legged cat-child. She looks like she is enjoying the beautiful day to the fullest. In fact, her coloring augments the colors of her surroundings, especially with the warm sunlight highlighting the scene. I love seeing pictures of other people's cat children. We have two, Maggie and Christopher, and we absolutely adore them. They love playing with each other, looking out the windows and observing nature, and they especially love our reading aloud time in the evenings.
Thank you so much for doing the giveaway and have lots of fun on your trip.
Cindy

Jenny Fowler said...

Oh my goodness - I hope you are having so much fun RIGHT NOW! I'm sure you are! :) Rosie is missing a leg it seems. Sweet kitty, was she born like that or did she have a sad accident? I love your May Day basket by the way.

sparkleaplenty said...

Super cute kitty - looks a lot like my kitty except for her missing leg. Hope you had fun in CA. Fingers are crossed that I get picked for your giveaway :)
