From this week’s JOY List :
David and I visited an awesome place called “Old House Parts” in Kennebunk, Maine on last Sunday.
We were looking for a doorknob to fit the 100 year old fixtures we have in our house.
As you can imagine from the name, this place had some amazing things to peek at and photograph !
like this interestingly placed warning sign…
or this Chick with the amazing hat, hanging out way up on top of an old wooden telephone booth.
But the thing that I saw that thrilled me the most was this guy :
This is Napoleon, and he is one of the most magnificent cats I have ever, ever seen.
He is the size of a full grown Jack Russell terrier but probably heavier.
And what cat have you ever seen that has a heart-shaped nose like this :
and the word “JOY” spelled out on his side !
Napoleon was such a treat ! He is featured on the shop’s website and has free reign over the place. I left him purring on an old ratan recliner, curled up on a Winnie the Pooh blanket.
Loved him !
I have also been getting joyfully getting back to creating and painting,
though slowly for some reason.
Here is what has been popping up in my little “Blob” journal.
I prepped a whole bunch of pages with red ink and a eyedropper so they would be ready to go.
This strange bunny with her flower backpack appeared in this blob. She got a random line for poetry from an old book page. I love how the perfect line just appeared on the page I grabbed to cut up !
I used markers and Twinkle H20 watercolors to fill in the drawing.
The blob on the page next to the bizarre rabbit became
these interesting flowers. Some of my new ProMarkers, some Pitt Artist pens and a Liquid Paper pen brought color to this piece I did in front of the tv.
I love that there are more blobs waiting for me to play with too !
Speaking of waiting, this is a 12X12 inch canvas that I started this week as well.
It is waiting to see where it will go next.
I love Golden Fluid Acrylics !!!
Oh and one more thing that brought me joy this week :
the spring weather that has allowed me to take out the new purple glittery Chucks !
They make my feet and eyes happy !
Don’t you just love “little happies !”
I hope your list of joys is long this week, Beautiful Ones !
Big Love !
For more joy, visit Meri's Musings. It will make you smile !
