Me and My Space - A little of my collectibles and GATO

HI! Wanted to show you something that just makes me happy! Tickles me! Now Hubby would say get over it, it is just a plant. But who cares, I love my plant! You see that Christmas Cactus? That is last years Christmas Cactus!! And I kept it alive all year, and now it is blooming! Just in time for... CHRISTMAS! TA - DA!
I feel so proud!  This is the top of my Glass Display cabinet, off our kitchen. This entire room was part of what we re-did this month. The top of the cabinet makes me happy - and those flowers really make me smile! You see I am not that great with plants... so keeping that alive and having it bloom is just short of a miracle! The other plant is part of my Prayer plant. My Grandma had one that I always loved, so Hubby got me one a few years ago. It grew 10 miles long (well really long) and this is a piece of it that I rooted and have planted... again how cool is that????  Let see you can see my my favorite bread and cake box - and a few of my vintage toys. Love the top of this piece of furniture! ;0)

Inside isn't too bad, just really crowded! And this is after I cleaned it out - thinned out the collection and cleaned everything ... I just didn't think out enough - but I oh well I just HAD to keep all of these pieces
 I love to collect! What can I say have lots of different things - :0)

Oh in our re-do Gato got a new window bed - She seems to really like it  -
 Cozy and warm there - and up away from the three dogs and that is probably the best part of the window bed!

Hope you liked my quick peek... if you like I can snap more photos around the house now that it is all painted - new floors and clean! I really had planned to do one of the room... but lost track after I saw all the blooms on my cactus! LOL

HUGS and -

Your Christmas cactus is lovely. I call mine a Thanksgiving cactus, as it is confused as to when it's supposed to bloom. It's done for the year already. Boo hoo.

You have some lovely glass pieces, thanks for sharing the pics.

I don't know if anyone is experiencing this. When I look at your blog, the (background) picture of the girl covers the entire page, except for your pictures. It makes reading very difficult!

We have 8" of snow, and more falling right now. Lucky Gato, looks like the perfect spot to me!

Merry Christmas!

Congrats on getting your Christmas cactus to flower two years running, I have NEVER managed that! Gato looks extremely comfortable on her new seat.

here in the dark North, where I´m living, we call these cactus for November cactus, and I have 3 of them, and one of them is 12 years old, and it has been blookming every year from early November til after christmas, and believe me, I don´t have green fingers either, and this is the only ones, i´ve ever managed to get to bloom again. I buy more poinsettias every year, as I love them too, but I almost always manage to kill them in a forthnight, and as such also this year LOL. I have just killed 3 of those again, as they just loose their leaves and end with absolutely nothing left very soon LOL.
Have a wonderful christmas and enjoy your cactus all christmas ha ha ha
