Black Cats of Halloween

Do you believe that black cats crossing a person's path from right to left brings bad luck? "Most of Europe considers the black cat a symbol of bad luck, particularly if one walks across the path in front of a person" (wikipedia) As a child, I heard many stories about black cats, their relation to witchcraft and bad luck. Many children stories feature black cats as villains. 

But in other parts of the world, black cats are considered good luck. "Black cats are also considered good luck in (some) parts of Britain and Japan. Furthermore, it is believed that a lady who owns a black cat will have many suitors." (wikipedia)

Whatever your stand is on this issue, one thing is certain: black cats are magnificent feline creatures and like all cats deserve to be admired and respected simply by virtue of being cats.

Original Rustic Home Decor

Trying something new is always exciting! I was always fascinated with the Rustic Style in art and home decor. In these newly created wooden signs, I combined my whimsical painting style with rustic look and feel. The signs are one of a kind, original, hand-painted artworks. Check these signs out in my HJM Art Gallery etsy shop.
