I picked up some foam rubber placemats in the dollar bins at Target a while back. They were too groovy to pass up! I just loved the 1970'sish graphic print. And although I think they would look fabulous on somebody's poolside spread, they would look odd on my old fashioned wooden dining table. Plus, lets be honest, I don't really use placemats very often. Most of my meals at home are consumed sitting on the sofa, on the floor, or standing over the kitchen sink. So yeah. These sat in drawer for a quite a while....
So I turned them into bulletin boards.
If you didn't know, I like bulletin boards. A lot.
I keep bulletin boards all over the house, including above Lola's eating area. This may sound weird to you but I think it's a nice place to post pictures of her kitty friends and cousins. I strongly believe in ART FOR ALL. This includes cats!
You could use thumb tacks, but I like pearl-head dress pins. They are cheaper, spiffier, and stronger than regular tacks. But don't mind me. That's just my opinion.
If you think I'm weird for setting up a gallery space my cat, you need to understand where I am coming from:
Yeah. It could be worse.
My dad kept a "litter box gallery" for as long as I can remember. He used it to post pictures of his least favorite people, news articles of interest, and cat themed comic strips. This meant Belly Dancer spent most of the 70's staring at his ex-wife and transcripts of the Nixon tapes.
Yes, she was a very informed cat.
Side note: If you can't find rubber placemats, check out foam rubber rugs. I found five at Goodwill a couple weeks ago for 99cents a piece. These will go up in my studio. To be continued...
