CAT THURSDAY (CHRISTMAS)

 


Welcome to the weekly meme that celebrates the wonders and sometime hilarity of cats! Join us by posting a favorite LOL cat pic you may have come across, famous cat art or even share with us pics of your own beloved cat(s). It's all for the love of cats! Enjoy! (share your post in the Mr. Linky below)

Today, on Cat Thursday, I'm featuring a lovely book by artist Lesley Anne Ivory.  It's called Cats and Carols and it's a beautiful collection of paintings depicting cats in settings which represent a selection of Christmas carols.  I have had this book for years and it has become a cherished book in my Christmas book collection.  Here are a couple of pictures from the book, along with the name of the carol that accompanies each:

This pic appears with Hark! The Herald Angels Sing (Charles Wesley 1707-88)


This one depicts In the Bleak Mid-Winter (Christina Rossetti 1830-94)


Gorgeous, aren't they?! The whole book is just beautiful.  You really must have it in your hands to truly appreciate it!
