From the Archives: Sophie and Lace

“Sophies and Lace”

Sophie could use any prop to dramatic effect, and the lace curtains were her favorite. Of course, you can’t see her. But if you look closely you might see a cat’s face through the lace that might have Sophie’s big green eyes with heavy eye-liner, and her tabby babushka and outlined nose.

I took this photograph the same day I took the one titled “Sophie Keeps and Eye on Things”, and you may recognize the lace curtain, in this case filled with early evening sun. If you look closely on either side of where Sophie is not sitting, you will also see the blue forget-me-nots in the windowbox outside the window. I was preparing to leave the house on foot and had my original little 2MP digital camera, and because Sophie always fussed when I was leaving she got extra attention, inside and out. Never sorry for spending that time!

Sophie played with these lace curtains all the time, so we’ll be sure to see her again, and I wanted to share a little more of her from today’s rescue story.
