The bird and the cat.
Thinking about some of my family today, so I added a parakeet.
Why? Well, my grandma had a little blue parakeet for years
that she taught to talk. It would ask her" Whatcha doin'
Vernie?, Whatcha cookin?, Love ya Vernie and some other things.
That bird was her treasure.

I keep thinking I've found my favorites in your Attic Series and then you do a new one that changes my mind. This is it! That blue Parakeet is great and the toy cat up on his hind legs ready to catch him Tweetie Bird style is too funny.

Hello Gwen, I thought this one had a quirky little bit of humor to it. I don't know how many "Got it".... but it gave me a chuckle. The parakeet really looks like my grandmas did. This one took several days to get all the detail but I was happy with the end result. Glad to hear "This is it!"
