Here's Buttercup, minding the Open Studios greeting table. She's sitting on the bookmarks to make sure they all lie flat :)
Isn't she big now? But she still looks sweet. On the first day of Open Studios, we kept her in the bedroom with my Loved One, watching a football game. But the second day, I allowed her to wander around and join in the fun -- and she was a big hit. She is so darned sociable -- she'll go right over to greet people coming in, allow herself to be scratched, and so on. And she only bit one person :p That person started to scratch Buttercup's tummy and you know how cats are when you do that -- they can get kind of aggressive and scratch you with their hind feet and bite you. It was just a little bite, and it was all in fun (I hope the lady thought so!). In my experience, cats aren't that fond of strangers -- our other cat heads for the hills and hides whenever someone comes into the house. But Miss B is as friendly as she can be.
A planter in my garden with mission bells --
I have to wrap it up and get busy, but I did spend a nice time with a friend this morning, catching up -- she is an artist who does wonderful things with journals, makes purses, and so on -- you might visit her at Redwood Mountain Musings to see what she's up to. And check out her Etsy store -- she has nice digital downloads but really, look at the purses. They're gorgeous. Great to see you, Chris!
A great Tuesday to you all --
