Other than a snapshot on our freezer door (and of my childhood cat at that; albeit, one of the greats), there is nary a photo of our current children in this home. And by that I mean those furry guys that roll on our bedclothes and lick the couch. Aw, those kids. We love the heck out of them.
A few months ago, I spotted this image on Apartment Therapy, and my eyes zoomed in on those large black and white portraits. I didn’t know I wanted it until I saw it – that same euphoria you get when strolling through the flea market. Bingo.
Since then, I’ve been sneaking up on Maddie under blankets, catching Libby in the act of… well, eating or sleeping (because hells bells, that’s all she does), and trying my darndest to snap Jack in the morning light. With my camera always within arm’s reach, I’m thisclose to rounding up three images for our version of the above.
Am I the crazy cat lady? Probably. But let’s not forget about Scott. He’s been on board with those whole larger-than-life-pet-heads-on-our-wall idea, too.
Has anyone else garnished their halls, shelves, and foyers with oversized pet portraits? If so, consider this your show and tell. We want to see it. And while we have a few ideas for final placement, it just happens to coincide with a built from-scratch entertainment center. That we haven’t started. Hey. I told you we pile it on. And it’s a new year, so bring it.
