Island Cat

While on the island last week, we visited the GEM Gallery. It was hosting a show by artist Kathy Hanley, a metal sculpture artist and friend of Elenka's. Most of her designs were of birds. I especially enjoyed the one featuring five small avians perched in a row. I had to chuckle when I saw this mailbox, made of sheet metal, next door. Was she keeping a watchful eye out for her fine metal, feathered friends indoors?
Now, that's a 'tweet' I get.

  1. Everyone should individualize and decorate their mailboxes. Years ago I hunted and found several unique roadside mailboxes. Could be our next theme?

  12. Waiting for the latest catnip delivery from Amazon...
    (To answer your question, lavender has a pleasing aroma that's said to be relaxing. It's used in a lot of things so you're probably familiar with it. The only time I've found it to be too much is at one store in town that has a big old bathtub full of dried lavender and must have painted its walls with essential oil. Clears your sinuses!)

  13. Bet the cat on that mailbox doesn't get much mail except that addressed to "Occupant".
