If you have been around the blog a while
you know that we have two dogs,
Cicada, our black lab,
and Hallie, our Golden.
Cicada or "Cada" joined our family first
and is now 8.
She came to us the summer of
our 17-year cicada infestation here in Illinois
and she ate those nasty bugs like they were candy
every day as a puppy, thus the name.
She is a lover. Great personality
and has an internal time clock
that you could set your watches to --
reminding you of her feeding time with
a 3 to 5 minute accuracy.
Don't know HOW she does it.
We love her like crazy
but that is not my reason for this post today
but you will see soon why a
new piece of art has come
into our home.

About a month ago
I got a call from my friend Eric
who I have referred to as
"my personal shopper"
He was in an antique shop
in Chicago and spied this
It is HUGE
at four feet tall.
Hard to photograph it
because of the glass
but you can see why we love it!
Had to share it.
It just kind of works here,
don't you agree?
