a simple box...







With the holidays coming up I was reminded about how kids always seem to love the cardboard box more than the shiny, new toy that came in it. Apparently for Miley it's the same, lol. She's been playing with the same cardboard box for the past three weeks straight, taking running starts from across the room and jumping in head first – literally nose-diving. She she then sits in it and stares at me. I'm not sure if she finds it comfortable or if she thinks I can't see her, either way her obsession is a pretty hilarious, and I couldn't help but snap some pics...

P.S. The film series and wedding wednesday will be back next week!

  4. Ha! My cat also loves boxes! I read an article which explained that cats love cardboard because they can easily mark it with their scent. Then they feel the box is their own territory!

    Love the photos you took!

  5. awww... you remind me of my cat, Sebastian and his love of boxes. Any size boxes.
    He was a Ruddy Abyssinian and quite beautiful and thought he was a mountain lion... when he wasn't thinking he was a person.
    I think I need a cat in the house again :)
    Happy Holidays ! C

    My cats are the same; they still play with boxes and strings at the age of 16 & 18:))

  7. She's such a pretty girl. My new puppy has found his favorite spot to be on my yoga mat. I think he likes it because it's the only place he doesn't slide around on the floor!

  12. There is nothing like a cat and a box. It's hilarious. Also, if you have more than one - you get to watch them push each other out of the box. Just so they can just sit in the box.

  13. Thanks everyone! Cat's definitely are odd little creatures, lol. Too funny...

    Dagmara - Thank you for such a kind comment! That makes me really happy, looks like my Shoot by Design course is really helping! I do need to print off a few to frame... I might make an inspiration board for photography and pin up a few of my fav pics.
