How Could I Resist?

Here's my suggestion: Click on the video below (even though the images are from "A Charlie Brown Christmas," and it's currently July and hotter than Hades out there). Listen to Vince Guaraldi's famous "Linus and Lucy" as you scroll down and gawk at the absolutely adorable Peanuts Gang.

I told you all that I collect Peanuts stuff, right?

Well, I dug through my Christmas boxes last night just to get ONE toy out. You'll know it when you see it--it's got "snow" on it. The rest of the items in the pictures are Avon bottles from the 1960s. I find this stuff at antique stores and on eBay.

One more thing--kitten photography is about 99% patience and 1% luck. They are wiggly and curious and they would rather play than pose for a picture. I was LUCKY to get such a good shot of Lucy. And it's a really, really good shot, I'm sure you'll agree.

In order, we have Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus and Lucy.

OMG, Meg, the soundtrack was perfect!! And that is an awesome pic of Lucy!!

Laurie of IBKC says she gets a lot of her good shots right after they wake up, before they become too frenetic. She also suggests trying to shoot in natural daylight. (Worth a shot anyway... I work so both are hard, except on weekends.)

Oh my the kittens are adorable! And the Avon bottles bring back so many memories. Love Charlie Brown's Christmas. Isn't Christmas w/out it. Thanks for sharing this.
