Photo Hunt - Copper


It's Saturday and time to post our Photo Hunt photo.  The theme this week is 'copper'

We had to go on a hunt through our house.   We know there are things made of copper around, so this is what we found.


Except for the pennies, the tankard and dish are gifts.   The copper dish is special to us because it was made by our dad's mother.  Her hobby was working in metal arts and made many lovely things with not only copper, but stirling silver - jewellery was a specialty of hers and she won prizes for her lovely designs! 

Those shiny pennies are a keepsake to us, since they are now not produced anymore for circulation in our country as it costs more than the face value to make them, or so we are told.

We also have a  'copper' colored cat, however, Moe did not want his photo taken so you  will have to look at us instead!

Mike is at the top of the stairs and Mindy is the cute one farther down.

Mike says:  just to prove I am also cute, I insisted on more photos of me!


I just have to have a quick bath, so I look good!


Okay, the bath took longer than I expected and I was exhausted, so I fell asleep.

Actually all four of us kitties are in sleep mode, because it's so foggy and it has been raining for days and days and there are not many birds coming to our feeder for us to watch.  

Have a great weekend everyone, hope you are getting some sunshine!

The tankard and dish are terrific!

Our human doesn't know what to do with all her pennies--she keeps meaning to take them with her to put in a donation jar somewhere, then keeps forgetting! (Typical middle-aged brain, she says.)

Good copper choices! We have a copper-colored cat (actually THREE) but Felix is a HAM for the camera! He comes running to pose.
He's crazypants.

The tankard and dish are lovely. The dish is a lovely keepsake from your dad's mother.

How did Moe get out of being photographed? I'd like him to give me some tips!

I can't every recall seeing a copper color kitty Cat. There is a yellow one here and his name is Ziggy.

Thanks for stopping in and the coffee is always on.
