My 4 Black Cats and Little Red Boots!

It was time for a few new photos of my 4 little black cats that I share my home with.  As many of you know, I found each cat as a feral kitten and at different times.  They are the biggest sweethearts ever! 
All four asleep on the bed
I used to work at a Museum in the Collection Department with the Textiles.  If there were pieces that were too damaged to save, we tried to use them to conserve other pieces.  If they were just too cute, like this little red baby boot, I occasionally got to take them home!
That little boot led to this next photo~my little cat Tobias wearing it on his left foot!  I am holding him on my lap and did my best to take a photo.  Oh, so funny!  Puss n Boots!
EEK!  A close up of his little foot!  I will get a better photo!
Hehe~this is Glastonbury Mister aka "Mr. Baby".  He is the baby of the family.  He likes to sleep in the bed with his head on the pillow and the covers up to his neck.  This makes me laugh all the time!
Finally, here it Tobias! He was wearing the boots!  What a face!  While he is a black cat, you can see that he really is more a chocolate brown.  Love these kittens!  I guess I should try to get back to work!

The Holly and The Ivy~Extremely Late!

Before the end of 2012, I took photographs with the theme of "The Holly and The Ivy" based on an Old English Song now sung by the talented group of female singers, The Medieval Baebes.  I was inspired by the lyrics to this song referring to the Holly Berry and the Ivy Leaf which both bloom in the cold and white of Winter.   I was so lucky to find a forest green silk velvet gown that was handmade as a Wedding gown by a woman in the 1930s.  I also added a gorgeous necklace and pair of earrings made by the talented Christina Allen Page of Sihaya Designs Jewelry

The last photograph is available still in my
Hopefully, I will be adding new Spring themed photographs!
I hope all is well with you folks in Blogland!
