Little Black Kitty

My mom had this little cat sitting on the shelf by the front door for as long as I can remember.  She got it from Mexico a long time ago and it sat with other Southwest-style decor.  She has never much liked cats, so I don't know why she kept it for so long, but when she finally got rid of it she gave it to me.  I really liked the shape of the cat, but not the paint job, so I gave it a little makeover. 

Now I like it a lot better, and it makes a perfect bookend. 

Linked up to DIY Day at A Soft Place to Land.

Wow! It looks great painted black...very tactile looking, and very modern. I have a tall sitting cat very much like the painted one that you had, but it's not as decorative, and that just stands in a corner. Maybe he could do with a make-over too!
