I've been pretty stressed lately -- and I should post about why, shouldn't I, pretty soon -- and that's led me to another gratitude post, because that's how I roll.

This one's mostly about the cats, because that, too, is how I roll.

Things I am grateful for:
  • Waking up to my Chocolate-kitty, snuggled up and purring.

  • Om Shanti Handcrafts' HR policy (or lack of same), which totally allows rum cake for lunch. *BURP*

  • A cat who loves me so much that he must stick his nose right in my ear.

More things I'm grateful for...what are you grateful for today?

Cats are individuals -- sometime to our sorrow! Each of my boys is himself, unashamedly, and I wouldn't trade any of em for all the pesto in the world (and I really do like pesto).

Mikey sounds awesome. And rescue cats are the best kind!

Cats are very helpful when you're packing. Actually, they're very helpful all the time...just ask them! Thank you for sharing, Denise.

Oh this is a wonderful post, sometimes it is the little things that keep us going... I would be honored to share with you all my lovelies... I am very grateful for my kitties and my little beagle...

This is my Chewy... my beagle I went to get a pomeranian and got a beagle... we fell in love at first sight, he will be 8 years old in June... his colors have blended together and he may think that he's a cat

This is my Tooty bear... Aka Whiskey the second... I have had her since the day she popped out. She just turned 12 in December... we have been inseperable since the first day

and this is the only picture I seem to have on my computer for my Salem, my inhertited kitty, I was honored with his presence in my life when I lost my dear friend in 2005. He has been with me for almost six years. He is actually my Tooty's daddy. I'm not sure how old he is, he only has one ear, but he is the sweetest most affectionate kitty I've ever met.

He is helping us to pack...

Thank you for letting me share with you...

It is the things that we may take for granted that gives us the greatest joy and the deepest sarrow.

Many Blessings,

From my vantage you're both pretty old and that's all I'll say! ;) My Chocolate-kitty wanders around the apartment and hollers, sometimes, just to make sure I'm still around. He's a good boy.


I'd love to meet your Smokey!

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
