My beloved Bleubeard was such a great co-host last month at Art Journal Journey, I knew I had to honor him for my second look today.
This is from October 27, 2012, and, as I'm sure you can tell, I'm using the camera that takes lousy photos. Here is the post in its entirety. I called it
A party for the birthday boy
It's time to throw a party. In fact, a very special party. It's a party for the special guy in my life, and I wanted to share photos of his big day.
Not your normal cake ingredients, but Bleubeard is not your normal party honoree.
It was time to replace his regular food bowl with party pieces. As an aside, when he was a kitten, he used to stand inside that food dish and eat his food because his head was too small to reach over the rim. Just to give you an idea of the size, it is the largest dog bowl you can buy.
You can see how small his party plate is in comparison. His "table" is set, although I chose to lose the napkin, and it was time to wait until he woke from his nap to sing happy birthday to him and give him his once yearly treat.
Fancy Feast is on top, and was a mess to try to get out of the can. The can of Friskies is on the bottom and I think he prefers it. The Greenies are swimming in juices around the edge of the plate, while the Omega 3 holistic treats are pushed into the top. I added the candle, but had the good sense not to light it.
I managed to get him to turn toward the camera so I could get a photo of his face, rather than the other end. I admit, that collar has seen better days. First one side of the plate, then
the other, proved he was hunting for the best food. Note that several of the Greenies were already gone, but none of the Omega 3 treats had been touched.
While Bleubeard took a short break, I managed to remove the candle so he could eat without putting his eye out.
All that excitement and eating took about thirty minutes, during which time I took over sixty photos. It was fun seeing him have such a fun time at his birthday party. But he was soon full and went off to clean himself and do other business, while I
wrapped his leftovers, which I then refrigerated. It was a special treat, because I used Press and Seal, a hoarded product I don't normally allow outside my craft room.
(As an aside, after viewing these photos, I can't imagine why my floor looks so dirty in the shots. Could it be that old camera, or am I just that bad at housecleaning?)
Now it's your turn to add your Second on the 2nd post. The rules are quite simple and everyone is welcome to join the fun look back. All you have to do is bring back a post that you are especially proud of, or possibly one you shared before anyone knew your blog existed. Anything you choose is acceptable, any subject, any genre. Then link below. Once you link, the birthday boy and I, along with other Second Look participants will be by to visit.
Please be aware this link is only open for five days, so it's best to post sometime on the 2nd.
Thanks for joining Bleubeard and me today to celebrate Bleubeard's special day a bit early, which is October 28.
