Caturday Art- Snowshoe Happy New Year's Kitty

Good Afternoon furbuddies, mom keeps dropping the ball on this schedule thingy.  She's trying but these things keep getting in the way like these things called Holidays.  Plus the boy messed up his ear and was at the human vets office getting that fixed better him them me.  I hate the vet.  He's fine now don't know what that was about.  Any ways I have a serious question to ask you all.  Do I look like a girl?  Santa Paws brought me prezzies and they're all pink.  I am not a girl this is making me so confused.  I'm gonna have to hit the nip tonight to get over this confusion.  Humans why do they do this to us.  I say start the rebellion again. Via La Revolution Happy New Year and here's my photo for Caturday. Yes, I'm playing with the stupid pink thing.

P.S. she as the nerve to take a photo that makes my butt look fat.

Very Late Merry Christmas Cat Art

Good Morning furbuddies so sorry for the lateness of this post.  I forgot to wish everyone a very late Merry Christmas and Happy New Year so sorry.  My mom over did it for the holidays and her migraines took over again.  She's determined to beat this thing back and get back to some kind of normal.  Can you believe Santa Paws thinks I'm a girl I got a pink stocking?  I'm a boy cat it must be all the art where mom makes me look fru fru. I tried to enjoy mom and the boys dinner, Mom yelled at me then gave me some stinky goodness.  I know how to work the mom.  The boys got games. I hope they bring out the yahtzee?  I love batting around the dice, so fun it makes mom laugh so hard.  But I'm in my homemade sauna got a little head cold so breathing the steam today.  What did Santa Paws bring you? Oh almost forgot here's the new Art.

(contains affiliated links see disclosure in footer)
Good morning furbuddies, we had some doozies of Storm's yesterday which knocked out our Internet so couldn't post. So we are a little late with our art but better late then never. Mom got me sitting in front of the tree you might be able to make it out even the reindeer ornament hanging off of it. I thought the tree was real this year and tried to turn it into a scratching post and mom's like Frankie can't do that.  Ah mom can't a guy have any fun? The boy will be off school for a whole 2 weeks can't wait for the lap petting.  Mom's trying a new murder mystery recipe called Red Velvet Brownies of course she wont let me have any, but I will turkey cat treats my favourite,  What are your humans doing for the holidays that you like to do?

We have been doing well in the shop for xmas here are some of the ornament that have sold

Upcycled Pine Box to Glam Trinket Box

(contains amazon affiliated links see disclosure in footer)
Good Morning dear readers, sorry its taken me awhile with all the holiday stuff going on to post the finished box.  So here it is in all its glory.  I went with a lovely paint color I found and some embellishments I'm going to share with you.  So lets get started.

This is the outside

                                           Finished the inside with a layer of decorator duck tape

                                                      Here's what we started with

I used a berry color acrylic paint it just went so well with the bling (which I covered in Vaseline so the paint would not stick to it).   After several coats of the berry paint I put a pearlesant glaze over the top part to make it sparkly.  Then when that dried I applied the owl rhinestone sticker and foam glitter stickers which I found in my stash.

I painted the inside with the berry acrylic paint (using the Vaseline).  Once that dried used decorated duck tape in strips to cover that blue paper.  Used exacted knife to cute excess tape,   That's how I finished it up and it was a lot of fun.

here's some items from amazon to help you create your own box

Good Morning fur buddies hope everyone had a great turkey day.  We are just relaxing after inhaling our turkey (canned friskies turkey) mom wont let me have people food.  It's that time of year where we get to play ornament hockey. Do you get to play ornament hockey with your humans?  Love it mom and the boys  chase me and I chase the pretty colored ball around the room. It's a lot of fun.  Moms saying NO FRANKIE NO.  All I hear is GO FRANKIE GO. Then I run out and grab moms leg and she says Frankie really loud.  I think its pretty funny.  I apologize for last weekend mother did not put me on the art hop she is going to do it today.  She was experiencing precooking overload. Before I forget P.S.A. here do not buy the dollar store pet wipes mother (ms. bargain hunter) bought them used them and I got the itchies so bad I was ripping fur out.  Needless to say I got a bath (ugh).  Happy Shopping and stay safe.




Mother has been busy in my zazzle shop and has fallen in love with last weeks graphic. We wanted to share with you her favourite item in the shop from this graphic.

Caturday Art-Snowshoe Painted Fire Kitty

(amazon affiliated links see disclosure in footer)
Good Morning furbuddies,  The mom has put me on guard duty again the creeper is back.  He's the guy that went around and harassed us in the middle of the night one summer and it took the cops 4 months to catch him.  We think its him same M.O. that's what mom says.  She thought she heard something last week when she was getting dressed after her shower like tapping on her window creeped her out.  No office staff around it was around 10am odd time.  I was asleep in chair in the dining room (asleep on the job mom says).  Any way moms giving me a break from posing and letting me use another glamour shot photo and turning it into art. Here's the link to join my fellow anipals in the art hop  We would love to see you there.  The Woofie next door and I are on the job now and we'll get this guy again hopefully soon mom doesn't sleep well when this stuff is going on. You do know I want to sink my fangs into him like I did at the vets office. Just let me alone with  the guy and I'll work my magic  Do your pet parents pay attention to your security issues?  Do you let your pet parents know that their are bad guys outside your home? Also its the holiday season and their are not so nice people who steal your Xmas packages so make sure you find a way to have them secured for you.

Frankie here I thought you might need some suggestions on some items to help with your security issues check these out on amazon

Trinity Thrift Xmas Thrifting Haul

Good Morning dear readers, here's another thrifting haul.  I went to the little church thrift shop.  They had a lot of nice Christmas stuff.  I think I will be visiting them more frequently.  The ladies are oh so nice in this store too make for a pleasant shopping experience.  So here's what I got and they will be on eBay.

This is a Christopher Radko Santa Trinket Box.  It's a great little collectible.  It's from the 2004 collection.

                This was a great little find Hallmark Pewter Vintage Fairy Brooch signed with company's copy right 2 1/2 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide

                    This was a cute little angel ornament that I couldn't resist.  I could find any info just thought it was too cute to pass up.

                                Very unique and unusual sculpture with a saxophone so cool.

                                             This is a very cute jewelry organizer for your rings
                                              and even your pins.

Happy thrifting and enjoy the thrill of the hunt and upcycling and making them pretty again.
