Take a Walk

November 28, 2014 by tigermucha

Yesterday after a wonderful dinner with our family we headed out to our local library’s Wetlands Trail for a walk.  The  clouds yesterday evening were amazing.

They were dark and light with bursts of sun coming in here and there.

There was even a little bit of snow left on the mountains from Cato on Wednesday.

The walk takes you through a neat marshy, wetland. There were lots of birds and some cool lichen covered trees. I loved this stump.

Beautiful Thanksgiving and Fall Inspired Arrangements

November 22, 2014 by tigermucha

Earlier this week I shared some favorite Table Settings with you for setting a lovely table for Thanksgiving.  Today I want to share some beautiful arrangements with you from my Arrange It Board on Pinterest. As with all of my Pinterest Round Ups, just click on the image to take you to the original source.

Beautiful Thanksgiving and Fall Inspired Arrangements on threelittlekittens.com/blog

I love bittersweet and have found several arrangements that highlight these colorful berries.

Arrangement 01

The only thing about bittersweet berries is the fact that they are poisonous, so if you have children or pets that might be tempted, you may want to go for a nice artificial bunch of berries.

Arrangement 02

Here is another nice arrangement using an old brown crock.

Arrangement 03

These pyracantha berries look stunning arranged in a white pitcher.

Arrangement 04

And it seems the trend is to use pumpkins and gourds for vases, too. Here you can find step by step directions on how to use a pumpkin as a vase for this lovely arrangement.

Arrangement 05

This white pumpkin with daisies and hydrangeas is stunning.

Arrangement 06

And these mini pumpkins with mums and bittersweet on each place setting are adorable.

Arrangement 07

Now this Cinderella pumpkin showcases an arrangement of flowers, fall ornamentals and greenery without even cutting into the pumpkin.  I like that idea.

Arrangement 08

I love the green and white of this arrangement.  Not your traditional bright hued piece, but so muted and lovely.

Arrangement 09

What about just using some pretty fall leaves?  Don’t they just make a statement all on their own?

Arrangement 10

Pair up some leaves with other fall elements and a few fresh flowers, and you have another wonderful centerpiece.

Arrangement 11

I also like these stacked baskets full of greenery, pinecones, spiced oranges and fruit.  And this would also work for Christmas, too!

Arrangement 12

These simple glass vases filled with nuts and  a single large mum make a statement.

Arrangement 13

And here is another little gourd – turned vase.

Arrangement 14

I hope you are inspired to create something beautiful for your table this Thanksgiving.  You can find a lot more here!

Humor Me – Cat Humor from Pinterest

November 20, 2014 by tigermucha

Happy Thursday!  Just one more day until Friday!  Here is a little cat humor for you, found on Pinterest.

Cat Humor

Our girls do this all the time.  We have these skirted foot stools and you can see their tail hanging out.  They think we cannot see them and it always makes us laugh.  Hope this brought a smile to your face today!

Let’s Set The Table for Thanksgiving

November 19, 2014 by tigermucha

Thanksgiving is just a week away.  Although we will not be eating at home this year, I have been pinning away on some of the most beautiful tablescapes I have seen for Fall themed Thanksgiving Dinner tables.

Let's Set the Table for Thanksgiving on threelittlekittens.com/blog

I even have a board on Pinterest set up just for beautiful place settings and table décor, not just for Thanksgiving, but all throughout the year.

Follow Teresa Mucha’s board Set The Table on Pinterest.

Below are some of my favorites.  Just click on the image to take you to the original source. I love the gold writing on the leaf for a place setting.

table01

I am a sucker for mercury glass. And I love the silver pine cones, too!

table02

Now this is just nature at her best.  Love the pumpkins and gourds, the berries and greenery and the different kinds of candles staggered throughout.

Table03

I love the simplicity of this velvet ribbon around the flatware. Truly elegant.

table04

Fragrant rosemary tied in multiple strands of ribbon makes these napkins in a basket perfect for a buffet.

table05

These mini boo pumpkins make a perfect addition to the center of the table. Placing them in a long narrow tray also does not take up too much additional space.  After all, there has to be room for the turkey!

table06

Here adding one to each place setting makes for a warm and inviting table.

table07

I love the feather and pine cone in the wooden berry box.

table08

What a cute way to set out your flatware!

table09

Again, I love the feathers, but more than that I love the color. Rich deep browns and cobalt blue.

table10

Of course, gold is always in style.

table11

I love using a pretty leaf on each place setting tied up with leather cord or ribbon.

Table12

Here is another bold color combination.  Love that classic blue and white with pumpkin orange.

table13

And lastly, this is a neat way to set up a buffet when you have limited counter or table space.  Go vertical using a sturdy old plant stand.

table14

I hope these inspire you to set a beautiful table this Thanksgiving!

Touring Cologne – Getting to the Cathedral

November 18, 2014 by tigermucha

So, for a while I have been telling you about our Viking River Cruise in Europe and about touring different ports along the Rhine River.  And I am still in Cologne.  Still on the third day of our cruise.  Well, there was just so much to see and do in Cologne.  And the highlight of the day was the Cathedral, or Kölner Dom.  It towers over the city.  Here are a view of the spires over the Roman Germanic Museum.

Cologne Cathedral spires tower over the Roman Germanic Museum and the city

Below is detail of one of the spires.  You can see at the bottom scaffolding.  They are constantly working on the Cathedral due to damage inflicted by pollution over the years.

Detail of one of the spires of the Cathedral in Cologne

You can see more scaffolding below.  Not a job that I would want.

Roofline and spire of the Cologne Cathedral

Below are the spires on the twin towers, which at 515 feet high make them Europe’s second tallest spires on a church.

Twin spires peeking out over the roofline of Cologne Cathedral

Some of the gothic detail on the East end, showing some of the flying buttresses and spires.

Gothic details on the Cathedral in Cologne

Twin spires of the Cologne Cathedral

You can see we were quite far down from the Cathedral and had some steps to climb to reach where the church was.

The cathedral of Cologne and the Roman-Germanic Museum

When we did reach the top, we were greeted by these wonderful street performers, a group of Russian musicians called The Compatible.  It was Easter Sunday and there were quite a few performers out that day as well as some demonstrations, too.

The Compatible - Russian Street Musicians

These guys were wonderful.  We listened to them for quite some time.  Below is a little video of one of their songs that we listened to.

You can find more on You Tube here, here , here  and here.

Russian Street Musicians - The Compatible

I always thought accordions had to play polkas.

Russian Street Performers - The Compatible

I am now a fan.  These two accordions sounded like organs. They really were an amazing group.  They were playing in a walkway between two areas of the Roman-Germanic museum and the sound was just perfect.

The Compatible

When we came out of the walkway, we were right in the middle of the square.  There was so much going on, like a protest happening on one side.  We think it had to be about animal cruelty or vegan in nature.  It was peaceful, no yelling or chanting, I think just trying to capitalize on the amount of people present that day.

German Protest

On the complete opposite side of the square we did spot these colorful people.  Not quite sure what the baby pacifiers symbolize on the one guys plastic chains around his back.  He had quite a collection going.

German Youth

And check out the Rainbow and bright orange Mohawks.  They really stand out, don’t you think?  These were really the only punk dressers that we saw during our entire trip.  And it appeared here to only be this little group of friends.

Rainbow Mohawk

Another part of the square had a street performer entertaining children with his bubble magic.

Bubble Magic in Cologne, Germany

These two girls were really enjoying themselves chasing the bubbles as he waved his magic wands.

Bubbles in Cologne, Germany

We had a lot of fun watching, too.

Bubble Magic on the Square in Cologne, Germany

I think besides The Compatible, this guy was my favorite.  Organ Grinders are something I remember from my childhood or seeing in old movies.

The Organ Grinder in Cologne, Germany

Of course, the live monkey was missing. But I don’t think that would have went over well with the protestors on the other side of the square.

The Organ Grinder in Cologne, Germany

Betsy liked the Organ Grinder, too.

And here are a few shots from the crowded square of the Cathedral that I snapped with my phone.

Kolner Dom

There were people everywhere. It was Easter Sunday after all.

Cologne Cathedral

Yup, got photobombed by a random tourist.

Me with the Cathedral in the background

There just wasn’t any way to get it all in on my phone.  But, here is proof I was there.  Well, next post I will have to show you more of the outside of this impressive structure.  Until then….

 

This is not a sponsored post.  This is my experience from my trip with Viking River Cruises.
