A Catwalk Weekly Link Round-Up


One week blends into another here at Casa Kittling. Denis and I are counting down the days until he retires even though we shouldn't because the celebratory date isn't until the end of May. Hopefully by then we can travel and take advantage of some of these daydream itineraries I've been concocting.

I've been polishing floors and getting ready for the exercise equipment that should be delivered soon, and I've started yet another afghan. The only other thing of note is the order I placed for some new masks. I thought I'd share three of them with you since I have no news to share. And no... you're not going to see me model them even though I did use the word "catwalk" in the title of the post!

Should I wear this one or the next one for my first visit to the Wildlife World Zoo in months?

And what about the last one for Christmas? Isn't it perfect for readers like you and me?

Now that the fashion show is over, I'll mosey on out to the link corral. Head 'em up! Moooove 'em out!

That's all for this week! Don't forget to stop by next Friday when I'll be sharing a freshly selected batch of links for your surfing pleasure.

Stay safe, stay healthy-- and don't forget to curl up with a good book!


  1. Oh, Cathy, those masks are fabulous! I love the wildlife ones! They're really beautiful. Now, I want to check out that find from Oxburgh Hall - sounds amazing.

  2. I'm having trouble, maybe another effect of hurricane Laura. Anyway, one more try--love the masks!

    1. It's good to see you're still among us, even if you are having trouble leaving a comment!

  3. Love the masks, the lemurs are cute

  5. Thank you. Went searching, couldn't find it, just leopard prints.

    1. I found several doing a search for "ringtailed lemur face masks." Copy and paste this link and see if it works for you:

      If not, I can give you individual links for the masks.
