I've got most of them from my usual 'suppliers' a few more from flea markets, car boot sales and antique centres, and my 'special' ones have been gifts at birthdays and Christmas - but more about them at a later date. Some of them are tiny - an inch high or less, up to real life size. I also have a few paintings of them. Despite what you may think I don't buy them just because I collect them, but because I really have to like them too.
To give you a taste of some of them I've taken a few photo's.... These are some of the ones that live in the lounge.
These are to the right hand side of the chimney breast, on top of a china cabinet.
Close up of the ones on the left - see the scared little mouse! Far left ginger and white is Babacombe Pottery the larger black one is Sylvac and the small Black is an Avon bottle, the rest are unmarked.
Centre - your eyes are not deceiving you, there is a little Sylvac terrier in there!
The Sylvac one makes another appearance, the smaller black/white and ginger/white are actually salt and pepper pots, whilst the largest ginger/white and tortie/white are also Babacombe Pottery.
and to the right - the others not already mentioned are not marked.
This signed limited edition print is a favourite of mine....
It's called 'Peeping Tom' and it makes me smile whenever I look at it :o)
Painted by John Mold - would you be surprised to know it cost £5 from a Charity Shop?
Well that's just a drop in the ocean of the cats that share my home, and I will put some more on at a later date. I hope you've enjoyed a peek at them, and would love to read your comments.
Next post....will be a surprise to me too as I have nothing planned at the moment!- but I'll try and make it interesting and different. Thank you for joining me again hope to see you back soon.
