Photographing Tiddles

I was going to put 'Pussy' in the header then my inner Mrs Slocombe kicked in and I thought I'd be popping up on ALL SORTS of searches! Mind you, 'Tiddles' could still get me in trouble....

Anyway, it was a genuine title/quandary - As Liz said in her comment on my last post, photos of my cat would be lovely on here. However, beautiful as she is, she is black. I suspect she has chosen this colour with great care as it means her hair shows up on pretty much everything, she can trip me up in the dark, she's hard to find when she sneaks out at night AND she's almost impossible to get a good photo of! If I'm lucky I get a black blob with a couple of eyes showing.

I can't be the only person with this issue, black is a very common cat colour (Its OK, I don't think she read that over my shoulder) so there must be thousands of people out there with digital cameras full of black blobs. Has anyone achieved a good photo of a black cat? Are they just plain unlucky to anyone with a camera? Or should I be purchasing bright pink hair dye? (That's not a serious suggestion, you don't need to call the RSPCA).

Busy busy busy

I've not made a single thing this weekend but it still seems to have been really busy. I've opened a new shop on Folksy - Argentia - to sell all things silver. Its still in its infancy and the range will grow over the coming weeks but feel free to drop in and let me know what you think.

Then, while I was listing items, I stumbled on the Folksy front page and thought it looked strangely familar...really fact, they've used one of my Pinterest boards on the front page! You wouldn't believe the size of the smile on my face when I realised it was mine. I hope it generates lots of sales for the lovely daisy items on there!

Ever get the feeling you're being followed?

Well I am! I have my first 'Follower', welcome Edwina!
Honestly, I still don't know what I think about blogging and following and the whole cyberspace thing. I'm trying so hard to get my head around it. I will post about what I'm doing and what I think etc. I won't be telling you about my kids' first steps or the contents of their nappies (this is mainly because I don't have any kids and the cat is fully litter trained).

Does anyone else feel slightly uncomfortable reading these details on other people's blogs? Slightly voyeuristic? Like you're spying on someone else's life? I feel much the same about Facebook sometimes. I know, if you put it online then you should be happy for someone to read it but still...sometimes I just feel a bit creepy for reading it.

Anyway, something I have no qualms about anyone seeing:
