Sunporch Shenanigans

There's a little more fun going on in the sunporch this week that I wanted to share with you.  I always have an ivy that sits in my wicker floral container, ok...funeral basket. I hate saying funeral basket. Is that the only time anyone ever had one of these delivered? I guess they were the closest thing to "disposable" back then. so anyway... back to the funeral basket...




I like to keep mine "upbeat" with some seasonal decor thrown in for fun.


So this month it's been an "ode to black cats".
I love any color cats, 
but in my lifetime I've had several of those sweeties
all named...

wait for it...



"Blackie"
I also had an adorable white kitty named "Whitey",
but today we're talkin' black kitties.
I think they get a bad rap.
My last "Blackie" was one of the sweetest girls around.


hmmm...this one could be a tuxedo.
but we'll just say it's black.




My girls were out here helping with the photos and trying to get a nibble
from the Angel Vine I just brought indoors.
They're naughty that way.



I found a wonderful little Elementary Reader a few years ago and used it to make some fun prints. That's a copy of the original 1920's page with another black cat and pumpkin image on top. I've always loved children's book illustrations from the 20's and 30's. When I was a kid, my grandmother had all my dad's childrens' books from the 30's. It broke my heart that someone cleared out the attic stash and threw them all away.
















In just a few days, we'll be gearing up for Thanksgiving and the turkeys will take over. So for this week the owls and black cats, are still on the loose. Even one of my lambs wanted to join the festivities out here by sporting a new scarf...


don't tell him it's just a ribbon with a little glitter...



This is my second post today, the first one was "unscheduled" when I got these photos and texts from my daughter. Just wanted to share them and have a laugh, if you haven't read that post, CLICK HERE
