Picture This #386 ~ Animal, Vegetable or Mineral

Thanks for hosting Benni and a wonderful banner photo.

Tabby decided to pose for a photo for everyone.


I suppose you could call this a study in peanuts.

The Three Wise Monkeys - a sort of family piece that Mr. Swiss brought with him when we married 48 years ago.
Three Wise Monkeys


  1. "Cause Im the cat that sits wherever pleases me."

    Indeed you could :)

    Cool statuette

  2. Wonderful shots for the theme!! Your kitty looks very thoughtful and you have captured her with great detail. Love the peanuts, a nice range of textures and colors. The monkeys are charming and should be a treasured heirloom.

  3. Hi Pat !! Great shots for Benni's theme. I recognise that look on Tabby's face....."Hurry up and take the photo Mrs Human, I'm bored already and have important things to do, like having a nap". Excellent close-up of the peanuts still in their shells. A study in texture. Looks like the Wise Monkeys get handled a lot, they seem to be being worn smooth.

  4. Hello Tabby! Thanks for the pose....I really love it... Good choice of the peanuts shot... Like to eat peanuts, but as they have a lot of calories I don't do it as often as I would want. I also have The three Wise Monkeys, but not in a piece like yours but three pieces, each one used as a door stop: Mizaru, Kikazaru and Iwazaru who sees, who hears and who speaks no evil, respectively, are my great companions in the living room.

  5. hi pat love your shots but especially your tabby love peanuts and the brass monkey's cool
