Well here's my post for Week 1 of 'Tuesday's Treasures'.

Gilbert 1, 2 & 3

I absolutely adore these cute ceramic cats by 'Quail' and bought these two from a lovely little shop called 'The Cats Whiskers' in Tintagel, Cornwall.  Their actual name written on the base is 'Basil' but they're called Gilbert after our lovely chubby moggie who we had to have put to sleep a few months ago.  They look just like him!  They were affectionately named Gilbert 2 & 3 by 'A' as obviously, our own super puss was Gilbert 1!

They do lots of other different coloured cats in the range and Mom has 'Simon' and 'Dusty'? to match her two lovely cats.  They also do salt and pepper pots, egg cups etc as well as other animals and birds.

Gilbert 2 & 3 have pride of place on my hearth and mantel and are a super reminder of our dearly missed Gilbert 1.
