Trouble's Tall Tales: Trouble Goes Antique Shopping

Kitties, recently I have been spending time in the Real Housecats house and have come to realize the whole yard sale look Mommie has going on in her house just does not work for me.  I need to upgrade my crib.  So I decided to go antique shopping in Dallas. 


The first store I went to specialized in French Antiques.  I found a very nice Louis XVI bed.  I was interested in it until the guy working there started telling me about what happened in Louis XVI in real life.  He got his head chopped off!  Man, talk about your bad ju-ju!  I just could not buy it – I mean I need my head, how would I wear my bling-bling collar without a head?  Time to move on to the next store. 




Next I went to a store that specialized in Southwest furniture.  I didn’t stay there long.  Most of their furniture was made with cowhide and that just made me so hungry. 

My final store was a store that carried furniture made by the Amish.  I liked the clean and simple lines of this style, but then I discovered that these people believe in simple living.  If I got some of this furniture, would I have to give up my luxuries like ‘Nip, Silvervine and my heated bed?  No thanks!




My shopping trip was not successful. 

 I think that if MTV Cribs calls, I’ll just be “unavailable”!

You must be shopping in the wrong places. You need a lovely plush velvet bed with a servant to wait on you.

You don’t want antique you want vintage!!!

Real Housecats ruined Austin too *sigh*

Keep looking, Callie! There IS some cool furniture out there - you just have to shop.

Maybe you need to have a visit from Jeff Lewis! He makes housecalls now!

Trouble, you need to be careful with those rocking chairs. It is real easy to get a tail or toe under the rocker. That HURTS.

This is almost like Goldilocks and the Three Bears!! You have to keep searching till you find the one that's "just right"!!

I was SO relieved to read the update below. Whew! You're off the hook!

You should try ancient Egyptian, Callie. They adored cats, and honored them as goddesses. They even had their own set of human servants. Bast, how we miss that!

We agree, antiques are too old. Sometimes even stinky. You need an HGTV star to come and wave some magic wands for you! ...wouldn't it be cool if there was an extreme cat home makeover show!

Allie: Oh you TOTALLY deserve a new crib! (I'd hide too, if MTV came calling.)
