I’m picturing a busy morning over at Ace the cat’s, where preparations for his Oscar Party are well underway. I see that Steve, Ace’s human, is done posting his Annual Movie Page, and is heading out to buy more milk. Ace’s other human, Dorothy, is making a few more flower pins and then will finish tidying up. Ace, of course, is hard at work, too: He’s taking a bath.
I’m also picturing Charlotte, as she and Daisy board a plane for San Francisco. (She’s due to head home from Mexico in a few days anyway, and Ace’s party’s on the way. Plus, she’d just hate to miss the fun!)
Here’s what else I see…
When Charlotte and Daisy arrive, Ace answers the door, in his handsome gray tux.
He ushers them both inside, where an impressive buffet awaits.
The Awards go off without a hitch, and Billy Crystal is in great form. Soon the humans toddle off to bed, and things really start to swing.
When the other cats and mice finally leave, Ace shows Charlotte and Daisy to their special guest quarters. Surprise! It’s a soft bed made from Dorothy’s hand-sewn flowers (Charlotte’s favorite).
In the morning, Charlotte and Daisy are out the door early, leaving Ace to his job of sorting all that lovely floral inventory. —And also leaving him to wonder: Was it all a dream?
As you can see, I’ve been dreaming about Dorothy Designs. —Ever since this pretty red rose I ordered from her Etsy shop arrived. Dorothy’s an old and dear friend, and does beautiful work. Do visit her shop sometime…so many pretty things to see!
Have a fun Oscar Sunday, Everyone—and good luck with your party, Ace! Charlotte and Daisy, we’ll see you both soon…
