  1. I smiled through your whole story about Ivy and the paint brushes, especially the part about finding them in the bathtub!

  2. Too funny about because Clementine likes craft paint brushes, too! My male kitties never paid any attention to them, so go figure. In fact, I have a photo somewhere of Clem with a paint brush in her mouth. If I can find it, I’ll send it to you via email.

  3. That Ivy is a stinker! She reminds me of my girl (rescue) kitty. She LOVES pulling out pipe cleaners from a jar! I put it away finally but think I’ll get it out again for her to play with. they will end up all over the place! I too love White cottage Company. Be sure to watch her videos about her garden shed makeover. It’s darling. I bought her book from her Etsy shop. Love it! Take care….Marilyn

    1. I wondered about her book. I need to get Ivy some pipe cleaners. Maybe that would keep her busy and she’d stop digging around in my craft room. But I doubt it.

      1. I just ordered her some pipe cleaners. Less than $7 so a good buy for something to MAYBE occupy her for a little while.

    Ivy is such a scamp. Love her stories. I have a cat about 3 yrs old that bangs on the bedroom door starting about 5 am! I get up and throw some cat nip down for her and she calms down. Gotta love our fur babies.

    1. Ivy puts her paw on me to let me know she’s out of food in the morning. If I put the covers over my head, she sticks her foot under the covers to paw at me till I get up.

  5. Ivy you are so funny! Maybe she would like some (more) attention or new stimulation? I have a friend who rotates the access her cat has to its toys so (the cat) sees each of them as new again as they rotate. I was thinking, could you keep your feet up on a little step stool (or box) while you work at your table? I do that sometimes when I sit at my desk for long periods. For me it helps w inflammation. So glad you are enjoying your new freezer! And the WalMart delivery seems like it is a very good option:-)Have a good day!

    1. I need my legs elevated above my heart so the blood doesn’t run down to my ankle, causing swelling. When I’m eating, I’ll often put my legs into the chair opposite where I’m sitting. But that still doesn’t do the trick for very long.

  6. I’m thoroughly enjoying “Sunday Snippets”, Brenda. And, it’s delightful to read about Ivy’s antics. Causes me to giggle and snicker. On occasion I do laugh out loud.
    Spend a little time at your yellow table then back to your chair to elevate your leg and plan projects.
    Have a wonderful Sunday, Brenda.

    1. That’s how I do it. Now that I’ve found this woman’s videos Leah sent to me, I’ve now been watching those when I sit down for a bit. She’s so enjoyable to watch, this Amish woman with such a creative mind.

  7. Oh, that Ivy is hilarious!!
    Please gift us with pictures of what she has done—including the things you talked about in this post. 😁

    1. I wish I would have had my camera with me, but of course I was using the walker and I would have to go back and get it. By the time I did that, Ivy would have moved. I keep my camera next to my chair so I can sometimes take photos from there if she’s in the living room.

  8. I never tire of stories about Ivy!

    1. I don’t think Ivy ever tires of thinking up things to do!
