Clever Caturday Artsy Friends!!

I have two very crafty and artys friends.
Grant and Kathy.  He is a woodcarver and she is a beader, she draws and paints.
Kathy sent me an email saying

"Grant is forever mislaying his glasses. He has Progressives and reading glasses & is always saying, "where did I leave them?"
She drew up a design he could make with scrap wood and then painted it "whimsically ".  He had fun making 2, here's a photo of one prototype. Now he is busy making MORE!!"

When Angel Madi passed, Grant carved this kitty and Kathy painted it just like my Angel.
Even the freckle on her nose.  Now it sits on top of Madi's box

Nature and Feline Friday

Hosted by my Niece Rosy, and her 2 brudders Arty and Jakey HERE

Nature from my back yard.

The next two pictures are of the same tree at night
I obviously changed the camera setting.
The file was dated 11/22/18. 
The blizzard of early December blew the remainder of the leaves away
 but I have no idea what setting I used for this one.  No pizap or photo shop just camera setting
I think I might need to buy a head lamp if I continue to take night time photos.
I really like this one.

The Japanese Maple appears to have ice or silver on clue how I did that

Kat, my handsome feline nephew, had a very nice first Christmas in his new home.
Hu-Mum ordered him  his very own water 'faucet'.
He loves it.  Since he was FORMERLY a stray, and he has K9 siblings
Hu-Mum ordered him a harness so he could go on supervised walkabouts when
his sibs are out. BUT he lives INDOORS.

Kat asked his HU-Mum to send me an email with the below photo
He dictated this:
Aunty HiC, Who is the coolest Dude in the Woods? ME he says.
he took right to his harness and is loving he walks
The other day he saw four deer. Not sure what he was seeing here.  In the bottom right photo his expression makes it look like he might have smelled something or somebuddy yummy.

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday

Today we join Two  SPOILED CATS 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.

Below is this week's inspiration

A mom's plea
She screamed at me you will fall
I squealed with glee...FREE
Where are your knee pads and helmet?

Kids young and old
All about balance
Tender knees
Senses awakened

Happy 2019 and Secret Lives of Letter I and J

November Reader's Digest and I happened upon this article, 
"The Secret Lives of Letters", by Brooke Nelson.  Mr. Nelson says letters may be small characters, but there are amazing stories behind all 26 alphabet all-stars.

Thank you for your kind comments on my blog make over.
I'm a fan of  (only) looking at Hot Air balloons.  It hangs in the corner of the office.
I just happened to look up on a rare SUNNY day to see the shadow.
Found the background under the customized backgrounds in blogger.
