Yesturday during our walk, I watched a black-and-white cat observing and catching birds. When he saw us, he sat ram-rod straight and gave us that look which said, whaddaya want? He reminded me of Sylvester from Sylvester and Tweetybird, the good old cartoons from way back then; and I came up with this fun set of beads 'Birdwatching'. The beads depict basically cats' profiles (with their muzzles on the sides of the beads), the bird, the flowers and shrubs (ok, ok, there were no tulips but I like tulips). So, you might want to know, why so many cats when I only saw one? Well, it's like a nightmare for the birds, isn't it? It feels like there are 10 cats trying to catch one bird, when that bird becomes a victim. That's why the set has more cats than birds. By the way, I do want to say that I love the cat artist and designer, Laurel Burch - her cats are my inspiration for this set as well.
So happy to say that I have finally broken the spell of just using ivory colored glass for my leafy motifs! Finally gotten it out of my system. Yes, the below set has Double Helix glass added to the leaves.Turning Over A New Leaf series: Ice Blue
