Meet my neighbor Dolly. Her eyes speak volumes to me. She has had quite a life.
She started life as a resident of New Orleans but Hurricane Katrina displaced her and she lost her home. She then adopted by my neighbor's daughter who lived in New York City at the time. She spent several years living in a downtown sky scrapper. Her second home got displaced when my neighbor's daughter had to give her up because of a move to Argentina.
Now she lives here in San Diego. I wish I could ask her about her experiences and what effect all this change has had on her but she is usually too busy chasing hummingbirds from my sweet broom bush.


P.S. What a shock! Have you heard of the kit club called Gypsy Rose Paperie (http://gypsyrosepaperie.com/).. they have the most cutting edge kits ever.. think Somerset Memories.. well anyways.. I sent them a little email letting them know about how much I love their site and how I was inspired to do a layout based on their vibe.. and they posted it on their blog!!! What an honor :)

I've got 3 cats and I can say I've never seen a look like this one's. You can tell he's been through a lot, he looks worried.
