we all know that while the cats away the mice will play.
in our case the mice have been away
and the cats have been playing.
while the wee ones have been on a two week jaunt of Japan with their older siblings (and their two younger siblings)
we cats have been keeping the home fires stoked and burning.
we didn't play the way a couple of empty nesters would normally play.
we did a mini makeover of the smallest room in the house and the room of one of the smallest peeps in the house.
miss 13 came home to a newly painted and pimped up (in true Japanese style) bedroom.
it features her antique Japanese kimono adorning the wall,
fresh and subtle shades of china white and hog bristle replace the garish colours of the 1980'shand me down furniture was given a new lease on life with a coat of semi gloss enamel paint and black porcelain and brass door knobs,
alice in wonderland moss terrarium made by moi,
and her original cocktail umbrella light shade that we made together last year.
a pretty sweet home coming after a two week adventure methinks.
