My Lovely Assistant

DSC_0718

I've been crazy, crazy, crazy busy getting ready for the big craft sale and poor little Bean isn't getting as much attention as she would like. With no kittens to entertain her, well, Bean's been a little bored.

She's been spending most of her time camped out by my side, watching me work. I appreciate her company, and even though she does get into trouble every now and again, I'm happy to have this sweet little face watching me.


As soon as I'm back from the sale, we'll get some more kittens, and things will resume to normal.

So, the sale is this Saturday (Dec 4th) in NYC. If you're in the neighborhood, please stop by and say hello. I've already got word that a few of you will be by, and I'm excited to be meeting you! Full details HERE.

  1. What a wistful look! Truly a "Why are you ignoring me...? Aren't I floofy enough?"

  2. Oh dear Bean. It's so difficult to be a muse sometimes. One is inspiration one moment & the next, poof.

    Seriously, have a great time at the sale. This is very exciting. I wonder if Mlle Bean knows that she is not going to NYC? Uh oh.

  3. Awww, what a cute face. And her little chin on the table.. I think she knows that you are going out of town and she will miss you so much!

  6. I get that same face if I'm eating dinner and not offering any morsels from my plate. Peanut will sit with her chin on the table, and just the eyes move, watching the fork go from plate to mouth. Hard to resist those faces, isn't it?

  7. Only a little ham would strike that pose. You're too much, Bean.

    Laurie, good luck with the sale on Saturday.

  8. LOVE the chin on the table pose! I wish I lived near NYC because I would so love to check out the sale. Hope it goes smashingly!

  9. Sweet, temporarily-forlorn little Butterbean! Could it be she's milking the drama for all it's worth when the camera's on? Bet there are a few sparkle balls to fetch from time to time...

  10. I'm wondering how many of those pins you have had to pick up off the floor after she batted them off the work station! I'd say a couple. ;) I too wished I lived closer to New York -- I'd definitely hit the craft show! Good luck!!! Sell lots!

  11. Wish I could come to New York! Do you need an assistant? Safe travels to you - hopefully you aren't flying through Chicago since I think O'Hare is probably is a little backed up with our first snow of the season.

  12. Good luck at the sale this weekend! Please have so much fun, and enjoy yourself.

    Aww, Crafting Supervisor Bean is such a patient kitty. :)

  13. Awww look at that deliberately-innocent and wistful expression with the chin on the table. Bean you are a mistress of your craft! :-p

    Good luck in NYC Laurie!

  14. What a beautiful mask Mz. Bean has. I never fully appreciated it before now.

  15. Po' kitteh! I'm sure Mommy will bring you back a souvenir.

    I love NYC & have been there several times, but I've never managed to go during the holiday season. An item on my "bucket list" is to visit the Met. Museum while the Neapolitan Baroque Creche is on display at the foot of their stunning tree. If you get a chance, Laurie, I recommend a visit.

  16. Promise, Mom, kittens when you get back? Promise? Promise? Pleazzee???

  17. Poor patient Bean. I am excited to check out the craft fair Saturday. So glad it lined up with our annual day bus trip from NH to NYC! Safe travels east!

  18. Aw, how adorable! She always looks beautiful, but I find this to be a particularly beautiful shot of her for some reason.

  19. Good luck, Laurie! I am sure the IBKC folks wouldn't mind a non-itty-bitty post ALL about the show. Or at least a link to your LaLa post!

  20. This sweetness between you and your baby Bean is probably one of my favorites among your posts.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh hey! I am in NYC! I could totally take a break from exam prep and come by. Right on.

    ReplyDelete
  22. shes just an angel from heaven.

  23. That face! I love love love the white chinny chin chin and how the Butterbean is resting it on the table in an oh-so-forlorn gesture. What a sweetheart Charlene is (except when she's not, I suppose...).

    As for your trip to NYC, I just can't tell you how freakin' excited I am for you. I expect *gobs* of photos (Craig?? Martha's staff?? Visiting IBKC groupies??) and for you to have staggering success and a *great* time in the city w/Craig.

    Dear Bean,
    you look soo gorgeous we can't believe it when your mum says you get in trouble some times. Would that face ever get into trouble?
    We think not!

  26. What an adorable face! Such a sweet picture.

  27. That forlorn little face is just adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, what a lovely girl... Charlene Butterbean, blue-eyed assistant extraordinaire!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. My sister and I are planning to stop by on Saturday - and we second the notion of visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art tree if you have the time. The whole place is amazing!

    ...and that has to be one of the cutest pictures of Beanie ever!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Is it bad that I called over my staff (including the dog person) to 'Come see the cutest little face!!'? Probably :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Miss Charlene captured the beauty, longing and hope of the pre-present opening moments of childhood.

    The "Aren't I being sooooooo good, Mom?" "If I don't touch, can I play with........?"

    Or was the after-shot one of a couple of scattered items, just too tempting for La Bean?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Awww.... Butterbean looks so kitten and attention deprived! Laurie, will you be bringing any kitten cards?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Charlene has such a sweet face! Love her.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Poor Bean...she needs a cuddle.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm with Anon - you should bring the unsold kitten cards and have them available too!

    I'm really proud of you and know you're going to kick some crafty butt!

    ReplyDelete
  36. What a sweet photo! Love Miss Bean's look...Momma, please play with me.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great photo! Best wishes for the sale on Saturday. Hope you make lots and lots of moolah in case that tub of sparkle balls runs low!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You know, I don't think I've ever seen a sweetier kitty face than Bean's in this photo. What a capture!

    You know I'm very partial to the Queen.

    ReplyDelete
  39. What an adorable photo! Gotta love the Bean ;D

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hi Laurie _ I just wanted to say how EXCITED I am for you - I hope you sell every piece you bring and come back with orders for more!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I was just wondering how Miss Charlene was doing! Poor Beanie, she looks so sad - patience, beautiful girl! You will (most likely) have new kittens for Christmas!

    And have a wonderful time in NYC, Laurie; I'm only sorry that, even though for once we'll actually be on the same coast, you'll still be too far away! Best of luck with the sale!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Dear Sweet Beanie--- WHO is the prettiest girl in town? Miss Charlene, of course! She doesn't need a magic mirror to tell her so, WE will!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm so excited for you, Laurie! You're going to rock this! xo

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm pretty sure my dog gives me that look when she wants food or love or both.

  45. "ok. Mom can come home now pleeze"
