Alex adopted me a number of years ago. He actually belonged to the neighbor on the east side of me, yet spent hours hanging
out with his kitty friends that lived with my neighbors to the west. He traveled through my yard going back and forth between
home and friends.

At that time I had been laid off at work and was spending more time in my home office and patio area. Alex began spending more and more time on one of my Adirondack chairs, during which we had great conversations. He is very vocal and expressive. He also started to follow me into the house. He was unbelievably well mannered. I set out a water bowl for him. I was also rather allergic to him.

An allergy prescription and a year later, I set out a food bowl. I still cannot keep Alex in the house overnight (swollen yucky eyes and congestion issues). Yet he knows that he is welcome to join his kitty friends next door in a comfy kitty igloo in the kitties’ house. It’s a perfect arrangement.

OMGosh - I've had the worst time trying to upload my photos (before and after) soooooo maybe now that these photos loaded, whatever the issue was - it has been resolved!!!

As usual I don't always remember to take 'before' photos of my projects because I'm so excited to get started. I had already painted one coat of white - before I remembered BUT - if you look closely you will be able to see a reddish mahogany color on the inside of the table - that's how it started out :)

This lovely little table just looked like it could use polka dots - blue, no less. I cut a potato in half and carved out the circle and proceeded to add dots!!!


Chat later
