one of the barn kitties that has decided he prefers the in of doors!!

an absolutely gorgeously exotic kitten about half the size of Tom, but the same age. So Leo gets to see the vet tomorrow for his check up and worming. I do believe we found a home for him, but no promises made yet. They wanted photos, well they will get them tomorrow...they will want him, how can you not, what a kitten!

He is about the cuddliest kitten I have ever known besides Tom.

I am a santa collector. I haven't added to my collection in probably about 8yrs or more. An artist friend of mine made these. Joan Sturvant of joandougart on ebay. I can't say enough about these ornaments. The quality is amazing, the olde world feel is very emotional, and they are just such a wonderful addition to my collection.

the tiny kidden

as many of you know, we "found" a litter of 3wk old kittens that had to be hand fed and bottle fed etc...
well three of them left today to their new homes... one left last week, and TOM, decided he was staying put, he knew he had a good thing going here at the ranch.
Tom follows me to every room, climbs my legs with his talons, sits up under my chin and purrs. He is either sleeping under my feet at the computer or under my chin in my work chair. He has won my heart and fulfills my HIGH MAINTENANCE ATTENTION needs that I have.
meet TINY TOM...my new kidden.

as you can see my papillon, Skeet is not convinced that Tom should become a Seeber.


hello, I decided since there is a bread line in Washington, I am gonna race and get in on it. My wonderful piece of American heritage is quickly crumbling due to inclement weather and age. It is an 1870's mail pouch barn, that is presently in use for my livestock, mostly horses. If it falls, it could kill or hurt them and then they would have no shelter. I actually put in a claim to my insurance company, and they rejected it. I emailed, called and spoke with many barn people who were not interested in helping. So I decided to plead to Nancy Pelosi, since she has quite a bit of loose and disposable cash, and this would only be around $50,000 to completely restore.

Dear Nancy Pelosi, November 7, 2008
My name is Robin Armstrong Seeber. I reside on a small farm just west of Pittsburgh, PA, with my family. I moved here about 9yrs ago to finish raising my children by myself. It is an 1870 farm house and Mail Pouch barn, quite a piece of our American heritage. As time has slipped by, money was always reserved for other priorities and my barn has started to fall victim to age and weather conditions.
In researching ways to preserve this piece of history, I found that no one could help me. My last resort is pleading to our great nations govt to help me save this barn. It had some serious wind damage from the last hurricane winds. I had my insurance company out to assess the damage, but said because it is so old, they will not cover it. I cannot afford to lose this barn as I have livestock residing there, plus it would be an eye sore for passersby to see a fallen piece of history.
Can you help me? I found it will take only about $50,000 to completely restore it bringing it back to it’s original condition, and causing it to last another 135 yrs . I will never be able to afford this.
I had nowhere else to turn Nancy. You are my last resort. So I am pleading to you to help if you think you can, if you feel this is important to our Pennsylvania history, and great American heritage. My barn has had many by passers photograph it for a “mail pouch” barn since it has advertised that in the past.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration in this matter,
info removed for security purposes and to make my daughter happy!!
I love her!! thanks for caring mandy..

just realized I haven't been on my regular blog for ever!

so here I am....

summer is coming to an end and a wonderful, warm, breezy summer we have had here in West Alec. Though I never look forward to winter, I do love a good fire burning with the gentle honey fragrance of our home made beeswax candles burning.

Seems I have been creating Halloween forever, so I believe that holiday is coming to an end for me for 2008, and Thanksgiving and Christmas inspiration filling my head.

My grandbaby Dylan is doing well and growing bigger each day. My middle daughter, Shanna is due in March 2009...what a busy wonderful year we have had and are looking forward to for the spring!

It is amazing how life goes on no matter what...you never know how it will go from day to day...sometimes frightful, sometimes exciting.

I am looking forward to lots of new ideas and designs for the winter holidays, so keep in touch and visit the sales blog when you have a minute.

thanks for stopping by, and thanks for your time... hugs, robin
