Kitty Music Box

Okay, I actually let out a little squeal of delight over how adorable this music box turned out when I finished! (If I do say so myself...) I've seen lots of ceramic music boxes to paint, but the mechanism is always tired or broken - this one plays beautifully! I almost kept this one for my baby cat, Gypsy, to play her sweet music on her altar, but decided to part with it. I've just listed it on Etsy here, and I hope it makes someone smile! :)

I get a real thrill from taking something old and giving it a new life. This kitty music box had obviously been well loved, and the paint was worn off in parts.
Check out the before and after transformation:

I really, really love this, especially how even though the kitties are dead, they still maintain their original "cutesy" quality!

As always you did a beautiful job! Love how the litty kept it's squint and the blue pillow makes it stand out, gorgeous!

This is amazing! They look ten times cuter after being painted! Great job! I especially love how you painted the bones. :)

An absolutely brilliant job! I totally love it, so much cuter after you gave it a new life!

And I love the contrast colour the blue pillow gives to the kitties.
