Why I Love Gerbera Daisies...by Joplin Japhet

A couple of weeks ago, the ladies had a wedding that used 200 gerbera daisies.


Pretty, no? Thank you to the fine people at Ever-Bloom in California for growing such a lovely product.

But, more importantly than that, when you order 200 gerberas they arrive in a giant box! It's even better than the printer box "that guy" got for me a while back. (Sorry Hewlett Packard and "that guy." Guess you'll just have to start making bigger printers so the boxes are bigger!)


It's got a great opening on the side that I can sneak into and observe the world. The white fluffy stuff (other than me) is the packaging they layer between the daisies. It also happens to be excellent cat napping material.


I can then exit with the appropriate post-nap dramatic feline stretch.

But my favorite feature...


Are alll of these great ventilation holes! Perfect for playing with my catnip fish. Or bear grass. Or seeded euc. Or ribbon.


It's also got a top tier that I can climb and perch upon. "I'm the King of the World."


Actually, I'm kind of sleepy. Playing is hard work.


I think I'd better take a nap on the veranda. Did I mention this box comes with it's own veranda?

Valentine's Day Loves...



Valentine's Day is right around the corner and it's all about love, so we thought we'd share a few of the things we love...

Barbi Gossen's Conversation Heart Pins! They're cute, they're sweet, they're hand-enameled and they're only $8! What's not to love?



She even made one for Joplin too!


"Purrfect!"

And Joplin Japhet is excited to announce the First Annual Joplin Japhet Cutest Pet Contest! Visit our facebook page and post your adorable pet pics to our wall! 4 categories-cutest cat, cutest dog, cutest not a cat or a dog and best dressed! Enter as many pics as you want. Winners will be drawn February 28th and will receive our adorable new Puppy Love arrangement pictured below!


Sorry-Joplin Japhet is not included!

And seriously-we love cute pet pictures! It makes our day! So let's seem 'em!

In other Joplin news, watch for his upcoming photos and article in the Green Bay Press Gazette on February 13th (the day before his birthday :). The photo shoot was last week-and he was darling as always. Though after an hour long shoot, he was exhausted. Being a model is hard work. His interview is this upcoming week, and we're certain he'll be gracious and witty, as usual.

Back to our adorable Puppy Love arrangement- it can help you score some serious points this Valentine's Day! Have it delivered to your sweetie at work and it will be sure to generate a chorus of "Awwwww, how cute is that?!" from the co-workers! And, score even more points when your sweetie realizes that $10 from every Puppy Love sold benefits the fuzzy butts in need at the Bay Area Humane Society! We've even had a few people send them on behalf of their pets-feel free to steal that idea!
"Happy Valentine's Day Mom! You're the best! Love, Fluffy"
