I'm Back!!!

Had a great time! Cannot believe we did so much in London and Bath, UK.  I have lots to tell you all about, but I'll break it up into posts about each thing separately.

First off, I never saw a single living cat!  Not on a windowsill, not in a park, nor on a street, sidewalk, or even in someone's purse or walking carriage!  Lots of cats seen in paintings, in museums, and on people's shirts, jackets or tote bags, however.  

So, here is one of my favorite items purchased; this from the British Museum.





This delightful cat head statue is paperweight sized, but it looks purrfect on my home art collection shelf!  Am pretty sure it's design was taken from this beautiful cat idol, which was on display.



More to come, and I promise to start visiting all of your blogs.  Travel is wonderful, but nothing beats one's own bed, own familiar household stuff, and do I need to mention The Hubby and my furry babies?

I can't believe you didn't see a living cat over there. England has always been a bit more canine than feline, but still, where are our representatives?
