Picatso

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend, enjoy!

Today I am sharing another piece for my anything goes challenge at AJJ

Allow me to introduce you to Picatso, a tough guy cat from the city streets who always gets his way. He reminded me of Macavity, a poem we learned at school, and I wrote a few lines on the page. the poem is from T.S. Elliott, and you can read it here. Picatso doesn't look like Macavity, but he behaves like him!





Signs of spring and life in our little town:



















Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  3. Picatso is a handsome guy. And I a sure, he is a little bit of a trouble maker because any cat with that expression would have to be. Not in a bad trouble maker way of course. And wow, you have some beautiful spring signs. You must be loving that. Have a wonderful weekend. hugs-Erika

  6. Oh I love him Valerie with his patchwork design and colours. He sure has the look of a cunning cat hence the poem line *He always has an alibi, and one or two to spare*
    I like how you decorated him with a handful of flowers to show his sensitive side Hee hee.. A great journaling piece.
    Happy crafting this weekend I'm hoping there maybe a little time left in the day for me to get some messy time in. Hugs Tracey xx

  9. Picatso is quite handsome and I love his name. Winter still has a grip here. We had some snow and now Saturday morning it's turned to a freezing mix so you're Spring pictures area a welcome relief. We won't see flowers like that for another two months! Enjoy your day!

  10. Liebe Valerie, die Fr├╝hlingszeichen lassen mir das Herz aufgehen - und Macavity kenne ich aus dem Musical Cats, das ja nach den T.S.Eliot-Texten geschaffen wurde. Picatso ist ein cooler, verwegener Kater, er sieht ein bisschen aus wie von Picasso gemalt, vielleicht daher der Name? Ich denke, unsere Gastkatze Samia w├╝rde mit ihm flirten ;-)
    Hab ein wunderbares Wochenende und gl├╝ckliche M├Ąrz-Tage
    ❤️ Traude❤️

  18. You KNOW I love the cat. So adorable. What a great entry at AJJ using your great theme.

    Of course, I love those spring flowers, too. I noticed when I returned this morning I am getting a few leaves popping up in my winter garden.

  21. Just the name, Picatso, is very creative, Valerie, and gives us a glimpse into the workings of your innovative mind. He looks like a cat with attitude - wouldn't want to mess with him! The images of spring are very encouraging - all of them - but I especially like the one of the fellow on the bench with his accordion. He looks so jolly, glad to be alive, and I bet he played a fine tune. The first spring flowers here are not so far off now. I have one little patch of snowdrops in the backyard, courtesy of the squirrels I think because I didn't plant them, and they will perhaps soon bloom. Soon you will be back at home, snug and cozy in your little apartment. Hooray! Hugs and kisses - David

  24. Your little town looks inviting with all its pretty flowers and the lovely man playing the accordion. he looks happy and reminds me of such a man who used to play beautifully for us when shopping in town. Sadly I have not seen him since covid and wonder if he is still around.
    But I am here for Picatso, a very handsome cat, unusual colouring but then this might be a disguise he is wearing if he truly is as wily as Macavity. He has a certain look in his eyes and I wonder if the slight twitch of the tongue means something? A lovely page for AJJ again.
    Hugs, Neet xx

    1. Picatso is VERY wild, and like me, he loves colours! We have several people playing the accordeon or other instruments, and it's always a nice addition to the 'flavour' of our little town! Hugs!
