Alex adopted me a number of years ago. He actually belonged to the neighbor on the east side of me, yet spent hours hanging
out with his kitty friends that lived with my neighbors to the west. He traveled through my yard going back and forth between
home and friends.

At that time I had been laid off at work and was spending more time in my home office and patio area. Alex began spending more and more time on one of my Adirondack chairs, during which we had great conversations. He is very vocal and expressive. He also started to follow me into the house. He was unbelievably well mannered. I set out a water bowl for him. I was also rather allergic to him.

An allergy prescription and a year later, I set out a food bowl. I still cannot keep Alex in the house overnight (swollen yucky eyes and congestion issues). Yet he knows that he is welcome to join his kitty friends next door in a comfy kitty igloo in the kitties’ house. It’s a perfect arrangement.

I love my neighborhood! Yesterday I needed help transporting a chair that was too large for my car up to the delightful BLOOM - sure enough one of my neighbors was more than willing to load the back of his truck with a couple of chairs and then wait around the shop while I did a bit of paperwork.

My repurposed lamp is now on the main counter at the shop and gives off the loveliest golden glow.

One word (SOLD) says it all :) The chair enters the shop in the morning and is gone by afternoon!!!

Perfect staging for an adirondack chair; love that BLOOM!

Chat later
