PHOTO HUNT: WOODEN

Photo Hunt challenges us to find a photo each week, one of our own of course, that complements a certain category.  I sometimes have difficulty finding a photo that fits the category and still makes sense on a "cat" blog!  Photo Hunt appears on many blogs each Saturday, and you can click here to link to Photo Hunt, if you're interested in taking part.  Today's word is "wooden".  This is an old photo, and a favorite one, of my granddaughter looking up at Maggy and Maggy returning her gaze.  So, here we have a favorite girl and a favorite kitty together with a favorite antique dressing table. That's the "wooden" part.  I love this piece, rescued from an old farmhouse in southwestern Michigan, it was covered with several layers of black lacquered paint.  We brought it to Florida and turned it over to a master restorer.  He found it was made of many, many different woods, it is all tongue and groove, no nails anywhere, and even the casters are made of wood.  His restoration took months, as he restored each type of wood to its natural state.  His work was impeccable, I thank him.
