Well as promised here are some pictures of the OZ tree. But like most things in Casa de Cuckoo.....not exactly smoothly executed. Besides, how could I miss an opportunity to share some of the insanity of it all.
I have a notoriously rotten orange marmalade tabby manx cat named "Sunny Bunny Boo Boo head". He is like all adorable red haired boys with attitude....a brat at times, in his case, most of the time. He was rescued from the pound by some friends who ran a pet store. He was his mother's only living kitten. He had to be removed from the crate with the other kittens about his age (4-6 weeks) because he was playing "little bunny foo foo" on their heads. Sunny has been a bad ass from the get go. And that was part of the reason I fell in love/hate with him. He delights and annoys me every day of his life.
He has always liked to use artificial trees as dental floss. Never eats the tree, just cleans his teeth with the fluffy parts....or something. Anyway, this lovely, sparkly, shiny green tree is no exception. When I was ready to decorate it, I couldn't find the tree. I looked everywhere I could think of that I may have stashed it but it wasn't me who had hidden it. Sunny had taken it to enjoy it's fluffiness later.....under my daughter's bed. Probably told the little dog, Ellie Mae Scootles they could share it later.
He also likes to rearrange anything left on table tops and so he took the yarn I was going to use to string the yellow brick road and dropped it on the floor for Ellie Mae to make a yarn maze for me to spend an hour unraveling....cuz they like to keep me entertained.
Thought I put the tree, after completing the decorating, in a relatively safe place (ain't no such place in Casa de Cuckoo but I keep pretending). Well, this morning......the Cowardly Lion had joined the other wild beasts on the floor and I rescued him before the "beasts from hell" had their way with him. He is one lucky lion, no teeth marks, didn't break into pieces and Sunny didn't have a chance to find him a new hide away.
So before they have a chance for more customization of a beautiful tree.............
Happy Saturday my lovelies (or as we shall now call you.....my pretties).
