Art Deco cats

 
  

I love vintage photographs of animals (see my doggie post here). I especially like finding photos of animals in vintage lockets because it means they were truly loved. I've only found three animal lockets in the two + years I've been buying for the shop - two doggie lockets and now this cat one! The car in the left photo looks 1930s to me, which matches the age of the locket. These Art Deco cats (and their locket) are now in the shop.

How sweet! I'm a sucker for vintage dog photographs but this cat one is very appealing!

Oh man. This makes me want to put tiny photos of A and Lucy into one of my old lockets. So sweet!

Adorable! I was totally wanting it since I work at a cat shelter, but I made it to the shop much too late!

I ended up getting this locket, and I just wanted to let you know that it makes me so happy every time I wear it. I show everyone I can the cute little cat pictures... Crazy cat lady indeed!
