Meet Bijou....


I know, naming a table runner is
a bit over-the-top, but we just hit
it off right away!




Bijou? Well, see-through fabric...tassels...
if you know what I mean! And she
was cheap! That is just a plain fact!





It was those tassels that lead to her
untimely demise (she lasted about a week).
But she did flaunt them...(in a cat's
mind a tassels mere existence is
"flaunting"! ).




Yes, Bijou got whacked by the Kitty Mafia
and now all I have are these pictures...and the
bittersweet memories of a young life, so full
of promise, cut short.






I'll miss her, but hopefully there
are more of her kind at the 99 Cent
Store...told ya she was cheap! ;)

Be sure to stop over at
HOW SWEET THE SOUND
for more PSF!

  3. Really Pretty! I think if your table runner needed a name it was right to give it one!

  9. Wonderful post for this l♥vely Pink Saturday. This is one morning of the week that I sit back, stroll from blog to blog and indulge myself surrounded by my favorite color.

    I wish you a blessed weekend filled with sunshine and surrounded by those you l♥ve.

  25. A week? My two would have had it right from the bag! We are rapidly becoming a tassel-free home.

  29. Pour Bijou, and she was so lovely. My sweet Janie would have loved Bijou. She did very much enjoy my son's Prom date's dress. We found her under it, ever-so-gently nibbling the layers of tulle. Happy late Pink Saturday!
