...and the Cat came back....

Remember this blogpost back in October? Susan was giving her shed a facelift, but her new artwork left something to be desired. What was it? There's something important missing. Ah yes.... the cat!

Can you spot the addition?

Here he is, a little closer.

He doesn't look very happy to be shut in the shed.

I love it. That's the kind of fancifulness that makes a neighborhood especially inviting.

That's great. I'd love to be able to do something like that but I fear I'd tromp l'eoil my whole house once I got started. Love the kitty.. such an expression.

Hey! How are you doing? Long time no see, but I do remember the first post (I loved the original painting she had done on the shed). And now the little cat is back, so cute!

Sending a steamy bowl of clam chowdah and a nice slice of BCP your way. :)

Cheers!

I'm so glad he found his way home - even if it has meant he's had to be shut in!

Nabeel said...

hmm what an artistic house .. the choice of colors and then the plants at the bottom .. but it would be nice to have real plants too.

I won't be too thrilled about being shut indoors either. But then again, it's winter so the cat shouldn't complain too much. :-)

Maybe your friend could paint her outside in the summer.

Love the kitty

Methinks I saw one like that in Combe Martin yesterday, when I visited the town for the first time.

Also learned that Shammick is the secret name for Combe Martin. Very secret ... shhhh ...

Brilliant! Might have to do something like this to my shed!

Joanna said...

I do hope somebody visits and geeds that cat.

I love the cat, and I love the look on his face. But to tell you the truth some of the comments you've had are priceless too. I checked out the old post, and I have to say i prefer the present design, but that might be because the old one was getting a bit tatty. Whichever one you look at, though, she's a very talented and imaginative person. Love it!
