Cat Portraits

I finished the cat portraits of Scout and Finn
with Ellie May's constant guidance.
She is so calming, such a dear!

While gathering my cat and dog prints for something special
I looked over at one of our beloved Polly (miss her so much)
and I noticed that the lace curtains had created a beautiful pattern on
the picture which blended in with the lace in the painting.

Who Is Visiting

We had company on Monday...
some wonderful friends visited

we met their sweet and adorable Westie
named Winnie for the first time.

Well, we were a bit worried about
how Brody would react to meeting
Winnie so we left him
behind a screen door
so that we could introduce them
with a safety net between them.
He appeared very skeptical from
a distance.

When Brody puffed up like a big balloon
we decided that we had best not let Brody and
Winnie mingle in the same room.

We didn't know what
Brody would do for he probably weighs as much as Winnie
and though Brody is so gentle and sweet with us
we didn't want anything to trigger his aggressive side!

It was such a beautiful warm day...
we all enjoyed a walk on the beach in the afternoon.

So happy to reconnect with old friends
and I fell in love with Winnie!
