CC#12 Three Wishes
I haven't been able to do much art this week but had to keep up with my Compendium of Curiosities Challenge at Linda's Studio L3. I love doing the chipped enamel technique. I had to rush a bit but still enjoyed it. I'll be away from my computer this week but promise to visit and comment on all your lovely things as soon as possible. :) Nan
Quick story about Yoshi if you are a cat person....my husband denies this story to this day but I was there. We were going to have sushi and stopped at Earth Pets for dog food and there was this single tiny kitten with a stub for a tail in a cage and of course I had to hold it and whisper to it that it would have a good home soon. I knew that we had 2 dogs and 2 cats and Steve had said no more so I walked away and we went to dinner. We were sitting over tea and he said out of the blue "OK..tell me why we should go back for that cat" ....I was so surprised that I had nothing to say for once. We went back and got Yoshi who has been the devil cat in our home ever since. We lost our sweet old man kitty this year and she is our 3rd and last kitten in residence. We named her after our favorite sushi roll called the Yoshi roll. And that's the truth! This angel image is actually the opposite of her. She ADORES Steve but is my secret studio cat at night after Steve goes to bed. She will not let him see her being nice to me! I keep a stash of buttons on strings to keep her occupied but occasionally she is right in my face like this photo or petting my tummy from under the work desk...what's that about? I know I have a tummy...back off! LOL!
