Happy New Year from Sophia

Sophia wishes everyone a Happy, Healthy and Wealthy New Year. In order to do that she strikes the pose of Maneki Neko the lucky beckoning cat. She holds a golden coin on which is written "gold" in Kanji. In keeping with our challenge's theme the coin is painted with golden acrylic paint. Sophia knows how to give a "high 5", so this pose is a familiar one for her.
Beginning January 1, 50% of the sales in my shop will support EFA's Charity of the month.


  1. so sweet! ;0) Adorable that she can do a high five, give her one from me ;0) beautiful, perfect for the theme, thank you Lolalynn for your wonderful work leading the Challenges! Michele

  2. I love the story behind the beckoning cat... and your rendition of her is 'fetching' (pun intended).
