Cats Wearing Glasses? …OK, Why Not!?

Back during the Food truck festival of 2017, I found that not only were the foodie vans in full swing, so were various other vendors.

Some were the same stall holders that can found on the Lange Voorhout every summer, antiques, bric-a-brac, books, and the like but some I have never seen before.

Amongst those were two stalls that made me stop and look closer…

The first was a lady selling Tee-shirts and card with copies of her own painted artworks, the subject of which was what made me smile.

Dogs, cats, pigs and all sorts of animals were depicted wearing hats, glasses and other paraphernalia.

Although not to kind of thing that I would wear personally, they were wonderful pieces of art.

The second was a lady selling some of the most unusual jewelry I have ever seen, incorporating amongst others, (I assume plastic) mice, lizards, spiders and crabs. Talk about a “statement piece” of jewelry! These make one of the biggest statements and most eye-catching pieces I have ever seen! Again, not really anything I  could pull off, but definitely for someone bolder out there to love and enjoy. I’m just not certain what happens if you walk into the room wearing all these mice around your neck and encounter someone who is scared of mice: would they leap into the nearest chair? or does that only count for real rats and mice? Not having any fear of mice I wouldn’t know how that would work. Both of these are quirky, unusual, colourful, delightful, and artistic. Neither suit my taste but hey, the world would be a very boring place if we all liked the same thing…  and the idea of cats in sunnies? (sunglasses) …What’s not to like?
