It involves a huge fishing pole, a large roasted free range chicken and a net...

Black is more stylish (black paint on tin foil looks awesome) - make one!!!

Example of black paint on tin foil (used inside a frame I did a while ago):

She sure is - currently cuddeling up on my lap as I type, all purrs and drools, with my youngest dog sleeping by my side (the two of them have become best of friends, which is wonderful).

I'd flag you twice if I could One for the beautiful hat and another for the adorable kitten. I have my own young bundle of fluff. A six month old snowshoe siamese ( meaning she has white paws instead of solid brown) who is a joy every day. You can never have too much awwwww in your life.

I live on a busy street in a city so my cats do not go out ever. I have a good set up though because they get a long 30 foot run for chasing toys that I throw and they have an open staircase which doubles as a toy when you poke stuff through the picketts. ( like fingers) They also have a pair of birds to amuse them and of course the TV for cats which is a window that opens to a view of a tree with squirrels and birds all day long. I am an animal lover and I will use my time to play with my pets before I do housework. They come before the vacuum. They know that any time they bring a toy to me that I will be game to play with them. I like the idea of your hat for a snow lady. If we get snow this year I will make my girl a hat like yours.

If you want a "talker" get a siamese . They have a large range of sounds and will often mimic sounds that you make. My little girl has this toy that is nothing but a little oval with leopard print fuzzy fabric on the outside about the size of a small mouse. When she brings it to me to play she says "bruuuup" and drops the thing at my feet. The thing is if I say to her go get your Brup she goes and gets that toy and no other. She also makes a noise that sounds like she is saying I dont know. The ever present Meer oowww which could mean food because she says that in the kitchen a lot. Any way if you want one that talks to you they are the ones.

I was just about to ask you about that!
I've always heard that the meezers are great talkers.

Little kitten is very vocal, which is great (my beloved kitty that passed in August was a talker, so it's nice to her some kitty-chatting again)... she'll happily sit and sing-song to you if you answer her. My tomcat isn't very talkative at all, although he's a "fantastic" howler if stuck in his cage to go to the vets. Hahahahaha!

Seems to me you should have mounted the tin foil onto the cardboard first with spay adhesive, then cut out the pattern. Moreover, used heavy duty tinfoil for maximum microwave protection. The use of a rolling pin to flatten, adhere and flatten the tin foil, lining the hat with felt fabric and using pot lids to make the top and your brim would have been nicer. Nevertheless,cute idea. Starred and Flagged.

I've already gotten the lamp base (managed to dig an old one out in the loft) - already gotten a layer of silver... and hopefully one of these nights I can coat it with some white, before sanding it in places... then all I need is a wire coathanger to make the thingy-bob for the inside.

Pardon me, I have done it again and not read enough and misunderstood what you were in fact making but, for a proper lampshade, some light should in fact come from/through the lampshade and foil of course prevents that but, don't let me rain on your creativity.

It has been years since I made a lampshade for a light in my room in college..I hated the light given off so I made a shade for it using a beach-ball, funny papers, spray lubricant glue, water and baling wire. I regret having chimed in here been since I have, I feel I should contribute.

This is just a quick graphic of my Funny Papers Lampshade. The beach-ball is for the shape; is coated with lubricant so the Paper and Watered Down Glue won't stick to the ball, which is deflated after the shell has dried. One good layer of paper goes on, then some wire for structural strength and then 3+ layers of paper on top of that. Here is a quick graphic of what I am talking about.

Cheers /

Well, the hat's now become the lampshade (used old black lampbase found in the loft. First painted silver, then white, and then some of the white rubbed off).



I love the light showing through all the tiny little holes, but am not happy with the lighbulb... will have to get an uplight only one, so the light shining underneath will be subdued.



I can't wait to finish the bedroom I'm currently decorating to add it, I think it will look well sweet.

From Awkward's Humour and Sillies

How To Give Your Cat A Pill

Pick up cat and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat's mouth and apply gentle pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.
Retrieve pill from floor and cat from behind sofa. Cradle cat in left arm and repeat process.
Retrieve cat from bedroom and throw soggy pill away.
Take new pill from foil wrap, cradle cat in left arm holding rear paws tightly with left hand. Force jaws open and push pill to back of mouth with right forefinger. Hold mouth shut for a count of 10.
Retrieve pill from goldfish bowl and cat from top of wardrobe. Call spouse from garden.
Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees, hold front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into mouth. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat's throat vigorously.
Retrieve cat from curtain rail, get another pill from foil wrap. Make note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines and vases from hearth and set to one side for glueing later.
Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat with head just visible from below armpit. Put pill in end of drinking straw, force mouth open with pencil and blow down drinking straw.
Check label to make sure pill not harmful to humans, drink glass of water to take taste away. Apply Band Aid to spouse's forearm and remove blood from carpet with cold water and soap.
Retrieve cat from neighbour's shed. Get another pill. Place cat in cupboard and close door onto neck to leave head showing. Force mouth open with dessert spoon. Flick pill down throat with elastic band.
Fetch screwdriver from garage and put cupboard door back on hinges. Apply cold compress to cheek and check records for date of last tetanus jab. Throw away T-shirt and fetch new one from bedroom.
Ring Fire Brigade to retrieve cat from tree across road. Apologise to neighbour who crashed into fence while swerving to miss cat. Take last pill from foil wrap.
Tie cat's front paws to rear paws with garden twine and bind tightly to leg of dining table. Find heavy duty pruning gloves from shed. Push pill into mouth followed by large piece of fillet steak. Hold head vertically and pour 2 pints of water down throat to wash pill down.
Get spouse to drive you to Casualty, sit quietly while doctor stitches finger and forearm and removes remnants of pill from right eye. Call furniture shop on way home to order new table.
Call RSPCA to collect cat and ring pet shop to see if they have any hamsters.

Cats RULE.
We just need to know our place.
And thanks for the memories ......
