a year of paintings

Happy New Year! I'm joining the fun in
Cindy's 2009 Year in Review Party at My Romantic Home.
This has been a wonderful year for me...
first year of retirement, a trip to Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam & a trip to Hawaii,
and a year of painting! My mosaic is all of the paintings I completed this year.
Wishing all of you a wonderful New Year full of blessings & love!

a book I love

My book club reads children's literature for December. I just read Home of the Brave by Katherine Applegate, about a young African boy coming to live in Minnesota. This book is just so beautifully written... I finished it with a sigh. It's why I love to read.

my mantle

I'm just posting one picture for Deck The Halls (my halls are finally decked, but didn't take pictures yet!). I went to Paris this spring & wanted to decorate my mantle with my little Eiffel Tower. I've had the print above the mantle for several years. Now, to see my decorating the tree challenge, look here.

Cats & the Tree

(more mosaics at Mary's Mosaic Monday)

I'm Carol's tuxedo cat Buster. My brother is the little black cat Jack.
This is our SECOND Christmas. That means by now, we should be mature
enough to handle things like decorations and trees. Well, I know I am.
Just look how cool I am in the middle of the decorating action.

...and this is Jack. All day, all I heard was "No Jack! Stop Jack!
Get out of here NOW Jack!"

He's getting into the tree every time she turns around.
He's biting & pulling & smacking everything!

I just can't look...he's going to break something!

Oh, no......he's got those crazy cat eyes & he's in the tree.....


This is my 5oth post! To celebrate, I'm offering free shipping at my Etsy shop,
through Friday. New items are coming this week also!
Thanks for visiting!
