Here’s Ray, ever vigilant - well ok, occasionally vigilant - keeping tabs on the neighborhood squirrels (and the dachshund next door) from the comfort of his favorite chair.

This one was fun to do ... it includes three of my favorite things:

1) a vintage kitchen chair with delicate metal scrollwork;

2) a blue ball pitcher that I found in one of the closets when we first started cleaning out the house in preparation for moving in; and

3) Ray
