A nice touch of remembrance for a wedding

Kittens, it's been too long! I've been remiss in posting on this blog, as I haven't been in a celebratory mood for the last few months. My sister-in-law got engaged recently, and charged me with the task of finding a very special bit of embroidery for her gown. We lost her father a few years ago, and she wanted a private remembrance of him during the ceremony. Because his totem animal was the owl, she wants an elegantly embroidered owl for the inside of her dress. How sweet is that - and she isn't even a Chi-O (but I am)! I found several great options on Etsy. Here are some other things I am posting for her - and for him, may he rest in peace!

Had to include this one; the groom is Thai.

Brushed Metal Monogram Cake Toppers

And this one, since it's in her initials. You kittens know I'm gaga for monograms!

Seriously, how cute are these little soaps?!?

This eight-inch tall chocolate owl will be an amazing centerpiece at a shower or elsewhere!


  1. Adore the owl! I was a Kappa and an owl was our animal, too! (But I'm guessing many sororities adopted Athena as their goddess, yes?) :) Glad you're back here blogging, Kitty!

  2. Nice to hear from you Averill! You are so Kappa! I love it! We didn't have Kappas at Ball State, so I did not know that. We were Persephone and Demeter, not Athena, but I am sure most adopted the latter. I'm revisiting all of that info since my 11 year old has decided to become a professor of Classics. And yes, i give the new Clash of the Titans two paws up. Persyus is to die for! Thanks for coming by. XO Kitty

  3. I went to Bryn Mawr which had no sororities which is one of the reasons I chose it, but the owl is on everything. Great ideas. So glad you are back!

  4. These are all SO cute - but I love the owl best! What a sweet way to remember your father.
