Our first example involves choosing a throw for my living room sofa. Here are some that I considered.
Not quite what I was looking for. Here is another.
One more I thought I'd try.
Frustrated, I thought about exactly what I wanted. It needed to be soft, warm,
and complement the tawny gold of the sofa. I think you'll agree--this one is perfect!
I purchased a plant stand, and spent days trying to find a plant for it.
The fern was nice, but I decided to try an ivy.
Maybe something taller.
None of the plants seemed right, so I went in another direction.
We live in a home built in the 1950's. One of it's charming features is a niche in the hallway designed
to hold a telephone. We don't even have a telephone, so I thought about what I could put there.
Pretty, but maybe glass would look better.
Too tall. I needed something that would fill the space better.
Then it hit me. I had the perfect solution.
I bought a new black and white animal print cushion for the chair in my office. It just needed something else. I debated about getting one of those pillows with a saying on it. This one was a contender.
Very cute, but not the right size.
That one was a little too bright. Besides, my cooking isn't worth a dime.
I thought this one might work better, but I didn't care for the pink.
I tried my most versatile cat, but I thought it was too many stripes.
My last try, and I think I found exactly what I was looking for!
So, that is decorating with cats. I am pretty sure I inherited
my knack for it from my mother. She practiced it in her own home.
Now, it's important not to confuse decorating with cats with letting your cats decorate. They are
very different. I cannot recommend letting your cats decorate. I tried it and this is what I got.
And, I cannot stress this enough. Do NOT decorate your cat.
Thank you for joining me today! I would love to hear your experiences with decorating with cats!
