To continue my show and tells I have some other cat figures out of my cat collection.

This one here is very special. I found it on the Chrismas market in Waterloo. It is made out of pasta. If you look right you will recognize different pasta forms. For example the wings are made out of "farfalle" (butterfly form), the body of a macaroni, and the arms also in a small noodle form. The whole angel then had been painted in gold.

This little cat I got from a friend to hang it out in the garden

Mr. Gattino offered me this cute ceramic cat family for a birthday and the candles I once found in a shop.

I can remember making or embellishing things with pasta and painting them gold. I never saw a cat like that before, though!! Love the one on the swing.


I also love the black kittys
with red hearts. The gold
pasta cat is very creative!
Have a great day Gattina!

Hello Gattina!
Just a little coucou before going to work. Nice to see your cats collection. I discover things I never saw before. This little cat made with pastas!!! ça me donne une idée pour mes élèves! Nous fabriquons des avions pour carnaval et là après j'enchaine avec Paques. En ce moment je leur fais découvrir Arlequin et les autres personnages de la commedia dell arte! Je ne leur ai pas encoe présenté Pantalone! On verra leur réaction! Pierre m'en a dessiné un grand.
Bon samedi!
