I brought this little watercolor and ink home from
the auctions last week. The colors and there
are perfect for our family room.
The week before that I bid on this gorgeous antique china
set from Bavaria. It's jaw dropping beautiful. Over
130 pieces, including some very unusual things like
leaf shaped deep sherbets and sweet little butter pats.
And now it's in the shop!
The view out the front door.
Charcoal in the violet patch.
It's the coolest spot in the yard and when
a cat lays down, they are totally submerged
in leaves....perfect for hiding as you sleep.
And here's little Star.
She looks a little rough, doesn't she?
This was her first photograph from yesterday.
I gave her a quick bath this morning with The Mister's help.
Boy, she's much stronger than her pint sized body would have
you believe! She was washed at the vet in something
very antiseptic smelling and she wasn't grooming herself.
So she got a quick wash and rinse and after lots of
hissing and growling she came back for a head rub,
so I guess we're forgiven. ha.
She was still in her bowl when I came out into the kitchen
this morning but has since felt comfortable enough to
take over the most coveted sleeping spot...the basket
on my desk in front of the nook windows.
Later today I found her in the window seat soaking
up the sunshine in the living room.
That would make any creature feel better!
She's using the litter box and eating well.
And in honor of having a new girl under the roof,
we'll end with some pink from the yard...
