Crockett and Caturday Art

We turned our blog ORANGE for our pal Crockett from Lone Star Cats and Finley and Brinley's Short Tails. Today would have been his 5th Gotcha Day. We are sending purrs of comfort and paws of sympathy to his family for their loss of such a wonderful boy.

 Mommy made this for the Famous Building Challenge and she got 2nd place. This building is in Mom's hometown, in case you want to know more about it -  The Threefoot Building (sometimes referred to as simply "The Threefoot") is a historic office building located in downtown Meridian, Mississippi named after the Threefoot family who owned an operated a business in downtown Meridian during the late 19th century and early 20th century. Designed by Claude H. Lindsley and completed in 1929 in the Art Deco style, the 16-story building is still the tallest in the city. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 18, 1979, under the Meridian Multiple Property Submission of buildings contributing to the historic nature of the city's downtown. In 2008 the Threefoot was recognized by the state as a Mississippi Landmark.

 This was for the Scavenger Hunt and Mom had a lot of fun making it.

 Mom got 2nd place in the Famous Icons Challenge the subject for the month was Marilyn Monroe.

 Mom got 3rd Place in the Mood Board Challenge the subject was Muse and Mom used a picture of the Greek Goddess.

 The Challenge was to create a pub sign. Mom decided she would like to dine at the Dancing Cats Inn.

 We also colored some pages for you.


 Mom says these spooky creatures remind her of the children of the forest, from A Game of Thrones. ~ATCAD
