This portrait of love

A memorial so sweet

Muzette, my first cat

Muzette1

My most talented sister, Lorraine Parent, created this portrait of my beloved cat, Muzette using photographs provided by my ex-husband, as a surprise for me the Christmas after Muzette’s passing.  It was so emotional for me, I could not even look at this canvas for years after I first saw it. That was 26 years ago and now  I am honored to have this opportunity to share not only my “Zet” with you, but a piece of my dear sister’s talent.  

Christmas Trees Around the World

Thank you to Colleen for the invite to participate in this photo gallery.

holidaze 015My sister, Lorraine, is the tree decorator in this house. She has such a grand time so my brother, Mitch and I simply stay out of her way, lest we end up decorated ourselves.

ChristmasCollageLorraine not only decorates the tree, she decorates everything (pretty much) in the room. Yes, those are Santa and elf hats on skulls…  Dinosaur? But of course!

 

We are located in  Westland which is in the great State of Michigan, smack dab in between Detroit Metro Airport, Ann Arbor, Detroit and Dearborn (roughly 25 minutes from any one those destinations for those who are Michigan savvy).

Many of the decorations have been in our family for decades and believe it or not, she adds new things every year…  No wonder she loves decorating even the outside trees as well as creating trees out of practically ANYTHING in the house!
