Talk on Thursday

We have to thank all of you for the great comments on yesterday's post. They made us smile, chuckle, and laugh out loud. We may have to solicit Mango and Norwood to be our ghostwriters.

The Momster celebrated her 100th birthday this week (BOL), on Tuesday to be precise. She had a very nice day and received lots of beautiful cards, good wishes, and pressies. But she wanted us to share with you this one that she actually purchased as her present to herself.

Look at this beautiful beaded bracelet in her favorite color blue with a hint of lavender and green.

Our pals Sadie, Angel and Isabella from Beaded Tail and their Mom sent us the cute card along with the bracelet. It is one of the "No No" bracelets that Isabella told us about in
this post at the Beaded Tail blog and this post too.

Be sure to check out the Etsy Shop for Beaded Tail.

Here is another look at the bracelet - don't look too closely at that arm - it really shows you that the Momster really is 100 years old. But isn't that bracelet just so pretty?

If you have a human who might like one of these too, the sweet lady at Beaded Tail will custom make one for you. Mom was especially delighted because the bracelet is made to fit her super skinny wrist. Be sure to check out the
Etsy shop at for more beautiful beaded jewelry.

Hey Maggie Mae, we finally got a pic of our new neighbor puppy. Her name is Layla and she is about four months old. She lives with Tank, a beautiful Golden Retriever right next door. Isn't she so pretty? We will try to get a better pic now that we have some nicer weather.

Speaking of the weather, can you believe it is 72 degrees F here today in Kansas???

Guess we just have to wait and see if the snow gods will send us some more snow before Spring arrives.

A no-no bracelet? I'll have to check that out! Beeyouteeful!

Happy, sunny WOOS! Your bracelet is beautiful! Some of mom's favorite birthday pressies have been the one's she's bought for herself!

Can't wait to meet the new neighbors!

It's sunny and warm here today, too. We're having a great time playing chase me and finding all the things that were hidden under the snow. Monkey is missing again and Mom says he'd better not be in the mud. She's going to go look for him.

That bracelet is just beautiful! I feel the Momster's pain, I have an incredibly small wrist as well.

We have 68 degree weather here today and are definitely enjoying it! We spent about an hour and a half outside playing earlier.

We hope your mom had a very Happy Birthday and our mommy was happy to have a little part in it! Thank you for this lovely post on the NO-NO bracelet! We're so glad you love it. My little kitty sisfurs like the little beads used to make it!

We're sorry all your snow is gone but that means more walks since the sidewalks are clear!

Hi there guys,

Happy Birthday to your mum, that bracelet is beautiful. We can see why she chose it.

We hope you get a little snow, but over here the humans are wanting the warm weather to come.

Happy 100th birthday! Gosh! I'm just trying to imagine that many candles. Maybe that's why it was so warm in Kansas.

Happy belated birthday!! 100 years!! That's my age!! That bracelet is beautiful. I have a very skinny wrist too and it's hard to find anything to wear that doesn't fall off of my hand. We have a snowless place here but never really had much at all. The weather was about 70 degrees but it's only February. I don't want any snow but here's hoping for more all all of the beautiful Sibes that want it!!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Santa, Minnie and Christmas said...

Happy belated birthday to your Momster! Glad she had a nice day. There are so many birthdays in February. Inky and her Mum is celebrating their birthdays this weekend and so is Cocorue's dadster. Who else? Our two humans, Mummy and Aunty Diana too!!

Happy birthday! Lovely bracelet and you three woofies look so nice and furry too. We'd love to hug you!

Thanks for dropping by and your words of comfort. Au ate a little so we're hopeful. If only he'll keep eating, he should be OK.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

The bracelet is stunning and looks perfect on the wrist! Happy Happy Birthday, Momster! We wish you a new year filled with beauty, peace of mind, happiness, health (for all of your family), the joys of friendship, and always, oodles of love!

If not snow, my fur friends, then maybe at least rain and mud! Spring is upon us!

Tell momster my momma's birthday is coming up and SHE will be 110!

ForPetsSake said...

Happy belated birthday!! Birthdays are such a great shopping excuse ;) That bracelet is lovely!
I tried Walgreens yesterday and was sadly disappointed - no more Husky pups. I guess they were all cleared out for valentine's day...

Jenner said...

Your momma got some beautiful pressies!! That last photo just makes me smile. Such gorgeous babies!

Holly and Khady said...

What a beautiful bracelet! And, happy birthday to your mom!

We totally understand how you all are feeling. We have had weather in the 60's here and all my snow is pretty much gone. We now have a swamp for a yard.

I'm sure hoping we get more snow too! It's only mid February, so I am staying pawsitive!

KB said...

Happy Birthday Momster! I love your bracelet. It's gorgeous colors.

Actually, I'm guessing that the warmth is a nice treat. Lying on the deck like that looks wonderful. We can't even see our deck because it's so covered in snow.

I love the photo of the three.

Lacy said...

The LOTH says it's a beautiful bracelet and we all say a very happy belated birthday to your mum who shared her special day with the GOTH.

You did tell us when you popped over to my blog and I'm so sorry I didn't get here sooner to sing to your mum but it's been a bit of a busy week.

I shall sing now - Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, happy Birthday to your mum.

Sarge said...

Hey Phantom, Thunder and Ciara!
Wow, happy happy bday to your momster. I'm sure she's not really 100, but she got great pressies! Love the pix of you in the warm sun. Wow, 70 degrees? I thought 57 for me here today was nice. Can't wait for Spring. Thanks for sharing the pix and be extra good to Momster for her day!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

I am going to send momma to that beaded bracelet store. She suffers from skeletal wrists as well despite extra padding in other parts.

Sorry it isn't totally cold and freezing and snowy where you are. We still have tons of it if you want to visit.

TwoSpecialWires said...

So. We're FINALLY beginning to catch up. And since Moma won't let us leave any comments on the Purr Furr Mance reviews (and we know why!), we were glad to back up and find this post. It's a bit late. But no less sincere! We hope your mom had a WONDERFUL birthday celebration! It looks like she did, and she certainly deserves it! (That bracelet is beautiful! The cards are perfect! And she's got a GREAT Family to help her enjoy her special day!)

Please pass our Belated Happy Birthday wishes forward!
