The Cat's Meow

There is a beautiful shop in Venice FL called the Cat's Meow and it is owned by two equally beautiful people, Mark and Susie Holt. These two have been a source of inspiration for me and when I need a beauty boost in that direction I head south.
The store carries the most beautiful funishings, bedding, clothing and gifts that one could ever imagine and on this particular day I wanted to surround myself with those things. I love what being around such talented people does for my soul.
I come away energized with new vision. Inside of me there is a new creation just waiting to be birthed in the Shabby Old House and places like this just stir me to action. Now stick around for a few days as I show you what fabulous finds could be yours. I don't mean to tempt you but.....I'm just saying......
How could you not be tempted by this?

They are so talented and aren't they just the sweetest!! I hope to see them in the Fall when they come to Zapp Hall, so if you come too it'll just be a great time.
