Sister Saturday Caturday Art with Seal and the Disappearing Decorations

sister saturday seal 01 01022021

Hello everyone, WOW! It’s not only hard to believe that Christmas is gone already, but now we’re in a brand new year. Here’s hoping that 2021 is kinder and gentler. So, today I’ve been laying here on the steps watching what is going on.

Ya know what? I should probably say I’m laying he watching what is going away. All of our pretty Christmas decorations are disappearing. The Mom has been packing things up. Really? I liked all of those pretty decorations. Oh, and our tree, it’s starting to look naked. How embarrassing.

Oh well, tis the season I guess. I’m sure they’ll be back next year, and likely before you know it. I hope y’all are having a nice New Year so far and we hope it only gets better from here on out.

Okay, enough about the disappearing decorations, it’s time for my art for the Caturday Art Blog Hop…

My human was a little late getting the tree up, so she is leaving it for a few more days before taking it down.

You do look a little sad, Seal. We follow tradition and keep our decorations up until January 6th.

as long it is only decorations and not any cats, we are good with that. i just came from a blog that said she came home yesterday from her daughters house and by the time she went to bed it was all down and packed away. I will miss all your pretty glass trees until next year.. I usually take down all Christmas on NY day except the tree in the nook, it has stayed as late as Feb in the past. so far nothing has come down in our house

Hi Seal…..I feel your pain. Today Mom is taking all our stuff down and packing it up too. My beloved tree that I SOOOOO love to nap under is going back in a box. Seems mean – can it breathe in there even if it’s not real? I guess I can just start looking forward to NEXT Christmas. Purrrrhaps that will get me through the next 12 months.

Hugs, Teddy

Hello Seal and your beautiful peepers….I bet Mom is very very careful(and needs no feline assistance) when she packs up all the gorgeous decorations

Our decorations are still up but they will probably come down soon. You look great in both versions of your picture, Seal.

Everything looks bare when the decorations come down. Ours stay up until Twelfth Night, January 6th.
Your art is lovely.

Awww, it’s always a little sad when the Christmas decorations get taken down. But they do come back. You look stunning today Seal, in both selfie and art!

Seal! You are gorgeous! We LOVE the painting…this one should be printed on canvas and hung over your fireplace! Our decorations will be up for another week. We will be having a Ukrainian Christmas this year in memory of our Daddy. We are quite looking forward to having the feast (and more gifts too).

We leave our decorations up until Epiphany (usually longer) which is my hubby’s b’day. Your mom does all that work, she should enjoy it longer. Beautiful art. XO

When we used to decorate, some stuff came down on Jan. 1 but some stayed through Three Kings Day (Epiphany, or Little Christmas, Jan. 6). Who knows, maybe you can talk your people into keeping a few things out that long.

Nice art!

You are a beautiful painting, Seal. The peeps don’t put away our decorations until January 6th. Pop was mentioning how pretty the tree is and they should leave it another month but TW is slightly allergic so that isn’t happening.

I hate when the decorations go down. It is like the Grinch visited.

I am sure all glitz and such of Christmas will be back in 2021. Next weekend I will start taking down our holiday pretties

Nice artwork, Seal! So pretty. 🙂

Our decorations are still up. Mom and Dad say we can leave them up for awhile; I like the decorations and tree a lot, so it’s fine by me. Hugs! – Ava

That’s lovely art, Seal! And don’t worry – the decorations will be back next year (or do We mean this year?)

Your art is gorgeous Mom says the tree is probably going as she would like to use the door, but she’ll leave everything else out until the end of January.

That’s beautiful artwork Seal. Is the needlepoint also an effect of Lunapic, if so, we have to try that one too once. Our decorations are gone too, I’m glad it’s all back to normal..well…at least here in our house…MOL. Extra Pawkisses for all of you🐾😽💞
