DOMINO: SPRING POSES!

Domino's out exploring the newly exposed garden.  Of all of the 3-Ds, she is the one who exhibits the most interesting poses.

 Back asswards!


 Back asswards with wind!


Back profile with a front twist!




Now that's putting a new spin on things!

DYLAN: KEEPING THE STILL LIFE STILL

I took these three 'still life' shots of Dylan recently.

 He kind of looks like he's in bed.


 That's because he's lying on a sheet.


A sheet which is covering the love seat in the living room.

No, it's not there as some kind of dust cover.

It's there to prevent this ...


Yikes!

DOMINO & DANTE: THE EDGE OF SPRING

This is a picture of Domino and Dante from one year ago.


Like then, the snow was gradually disappearing from the earth and the sun was shining brightly.  You can see Spring edging it's way in by the bare patches of grass that are visible.

Life was good ...


... and soon it would get a whole lot better!

DYLAN: SALT OF THE EARTH

Here's Dylan with pellets of salt strewn all around him.  Despite the recent storm, he is enjoying the weather which has turned sunny once again.


Even though the storm was an assault on his senses he says ...
"I dont has any chips on my shoulder". 



"I jus' takes it all wif a grain a' salt!"

DYLAN: THE PAUSE THAT REFRESHES

Dylan is sniffing all the smells that were left from winter.


He has assorted spots that he had scent-marked, and now they need to be refreshed.  How else will any other beast know what belongs to him?


"Yoor mine, ALL mine!"  declares Dylan whilst drooling.

DOMINO: HITTING THE PAVEMENT

The driveway is just about free from snow now, and Domino is taking advantage.


"Is lovely to take a walk and not get yoor feet wet!" remarks she.

It's just one of the blessings of an early Spring.


So "March" on!

DOMINO IS HATTY CATTY: SOMETHING'S FISHY!

Domino is happy that she doesn't need to dress as warmly now that all the snow is melting.

She still has a woollen cap to keep her ears warm, though.  The base of the cap is crocheted in yellow wool and adorned with a dark green pompom on top and decorative lattice, studded with pearls, on the peak.

Her purse is a lovely sunny yellow floral with silver and gray strap.  Around her neck she has a sterling silver chain necklace with a yellow angelfish pendant, and she has a gold and silver charm bracelet around her dainty wrist.

She's all hepped up to 'Spring' into action.


"I jus' cant wait ta go fishin'!" Domino declares gleefully.

DYLAN: HATUS MANUS CATUS WITH A TWIST (or is that twisted?)!

Dylan is a funny boy.  Here he is in the back yard taking cover on the patio which has become an oasis landlocked by snow.  Even though the weather was warmer for awhile and allowed a certain amount of the white stuff to melt, a cold front has come back through halting Spring's progress temPURRarily.

 "I furgot ta put on my hat so dis chair seat will hafta do" despairs Dylan.


"Hmmm, is ackshully kwite cozy undah here!"

Dylan suddenly had a great idea!  He will develop a new line of chair 'hats' for this niche market (after all it appears that he has found this purrticular niche underniche the chair!)   However, as winter is almost over, his mind naturally turned to Spring, instead.  Of course he would have to shrink the chairs to make for a better fit.  They are couture after all.

Et voila!  Here are some samples from his 'Spring 2017' collection.


It's a cream upholstered 'easy' chair with yellow and green flowers.  It just screams fresh air, warm weather and the easy life!



This headpiece is actually a beige fascinator in the shape of a rocker for those who are off theirs (their rockers, that is).


And then there's the robin's egg blue wing chair for those who don't have time to plan their outfit and just want to wing it.




"Dere's lots more ware dat came frum!" remarks Dylan who has design ideas literally coming out his ears.

DOMINO ON THE 'MARCH'

It's March now so Domino has gone on one.

 When it comes to marching, she has a very unique style.


 In fact, to call it a 'march' is a bit of a 'stretch'!


So to protest, she decided to hold a 'sit-in' instead.



"Cuppa tea anyone?"
