JB:Mom, come see the Valentine's card that just came in the mail for you!
JB:Let me read it to you!
Charli:Mom, read the inside of the card!
Mom:Ok, you cats. Someone had a paw in this! How did you manage to send me this card in the mail by yourselves?
JB:We have our ways, and we even licked the stamp!
PeeS: The look on mom's face when she opened the card was priceless! She LOL'd for a long time out loud, and she sure needed a laugh. We wish us cats knew how to use the camera to capture the moment, but we don't have thumbs! Mom has NO idea who helped us send this card, and she wants someone to fess up. The postmark came from Dallas. Hhhmmm.
So if anyone knows my mom, she is always looking at art, or collecting art of some sort in her travels. Well, she only had to drive around the corner from home for this art! These are mom's newest acquisitions. They are of a seagull in St. Thomas, and are painted by the mom of a friend of my mom, local TX artist,Nancy Berkhouse.
This one is called "Party Bird". It caught mom's eye, because the flower looks like a hibiscus, mom's fave flower, and it looked a scene in the Caribbean.
CocoBean:Did someone say "Party"?
This one is called "The Lifeguard".
Armani:Did someone say birdie??
Mom takes pictures of birds wherever she travels and she took pics of birds and the beautiful water in St Thomas too, last time she was there. We think mom is taking some sort of virtual beach vacation in her head lately, to escape work!
Mom's newest art goes along with the same theme from her last art purchase back in May 2012, a pretty art glass, from when she was on the beach in Sidmouth, England.
