PhotoHunt Theme: Stripes

"STRIPES" is the theme this week.
~~~
~~
This little nightstand used to belong to my grandmother, along with the second nightstand, a dresser with a mirror and a tall dresser. My mother gave the set to my daughter. They started out an off-white color. When my daughter still lived at home she painted them a marbled green. She majored in Art and this is how she painted one of them next - love the STRIPES! I found the STRIPED tissue box and gave it to her since it matched her STRIPED nightstand. Now the STRIPES are gone as she recently painted them all brown when she repainted her bedroom
March 16th my husband and I went to the zoo.
Zebras are certainly known for their STRIPES.

Then we found this ring-tailed lemur
with lots of STRIPES on his very long tail!

China Cat is a ginger tabby so she also has lots of STRIPES.
And so does her matching bed!

Willow has a long tail with dark STRIPES on it.
These Amur Tigers were the main reason that I wanted to go to the Zoo. The Mama Tiger had five baby tiger cubs last year. We usually go to the Zoo a couple times a year but didn't get there since the baby tigers were allowed out in their yard. Here were two of the tiger cubs playing in the pool. Look at those gorgeous STRIPES!
Here's some more STRIPES
with four tiger cubs playing with a stick in the water.

The fifth tiger cub was following Mama Tiger around the enclosure.
She was the only one with dry STRIPES!

My daughter's first baby is due on Tuesday. She has the whole room ready. My mother-in-law made the bumper pads and the skirt for the crib. There are some STRIPES on the bumper pads and the skirt is all black and white STRIPES.
Alice is one of my daughter's two cats. She is a tabby cat with dark STRIPES. She is leaning against my daughter's black and white STRIPES. My daughter says it's funny to see Alice when the baby kicks her!
As always, you can find more of Tnchick's Photohunters here!
