My Parents Have A Brand New Baby!

And it's a boy!  Now, seeing as my parents are in their 70's, it would be a bit difficult for them to be parents of a baby at least of the human kind.   What I'm referring to is their newest addition to the family:

His name is Thumper because he has such big feet and when he runs or comes down the stairs, he sounds like he's thumping.  He's an orange tabby and is just adorable!  I believe he's 3 months old.  I took tons of pictures to send to my parents because neither one of them have a working camera! 
Here are some other pics of Thumper:

Now I have to make a Cat Mini Album.  Ah, I love another reason to create.  
Anyway, on another note, my daughter and I went to a bridal shower on Sunday (9-11-11) and the theme was "Breakfast at Tiffany's".  We had to dress up as Audrey Hepburn in the movie--black dress, sunglasses and big hats.  So here I am dressed in my best:

Sorry for the blurriness.  My daughter tends to move the camera as she's taking the picture.  The shower was held at the Clipper Merchant Tea House in Limerick Maine.  What a nice place to have tea and finger sandwiches with friends.  I never saw so many teacups in one place!  
This is a vintage wedding gown worn by the lady of the house back in the 1800's.  The house was loaded with antiques and each room had a theme.  The room behind the room I was in and behind the gown was "The China Room", named for the daughter the owners adopted in China.  It has 2 tables for 2 people, so it's very small and every inch is decorated in items from China.

This room had a feel of Presidents about it, seeing that all the photographs and paintings around the room were of past Presidents.  The rooms were so nice, that my daughter and I couldn't decide where to sit!

This is the "Tartan Room"--I think in memory of their Scottish ancestors. 

And below is the Bride To Be!  Sarah who is soon to be the daughter-in-law of one of my closest friends:

My plate of goodies:

And here's the quaint little tea house from the outside:

And below are all the ladies who attended Tea:

Thanks for looking and I hope you'll come back again to see some of my latest creations that have kept me so busy and away from my blog. 

Have a great day!
