Cats and Owls


Hello yellow!


My lovely friend Martina thought of me when she saw this t-shirt as I draw similar cats to this yawning one, and she got it for me. I haven't been this happy with a gifted piece of clothing since I was a child. :) 


I also love this shirt which I bought second hand for about 3 dollars. It's Miu Miu. :)


Wearing: T-shirt: gift from lovely Martina, Shirt: second hand Miu Miu, 
Jeans: Takko, Bag: Zara, Boots: Chinese shop, Ring: Promod, Earrings: customized by me.


Figure 1: Nyafi (our cat) briefly cooperating with me to keep the photoshoot topical.


Figure 2: Nyafi seemingly admiring the cat on my t-shirt, but in fact she is seconds away 
from ferociously attacking my leg. Possessed, I tell you.

And if that wasn't scary enough for Halloween, here are some close-ups of the sculptures 
that you can see behind me. They are an installation by Anna Erdő(s), made from Raku ceramics, 
and they're called The Forest of Owls... Enjoy! 
And have a spooky Halloween! :)

Cute new lay-out! Very haloween appropriate! haha, I'm loving your vintage miu miu shirt :) I first thought is was a leatherish jacket ^^ x

Madeline Quaint said...

Thanks Nikki, the shirt's a very warm material, one can totally wear it as a coat.

Kelley said...

WOW! Those owls are REALLY creepy! That shirt on the other hand is super cute :)

Marisa Violeta said...

The Miu Miu shirt for only 3 dollars? Thats perfect! I wish I had second hand stores like that here xD
Oh, and I loved that cat t-shirt! It's so cute and it has a lovely design!

What a great steal that shirt was! I love cheap things. Also, THIS OUTFIT IS AWESOME. That is all.

Loren said...

This shirt, is super adorable. Love the jacket as well.

Lyddiegal said...

up close the individual owls look really scary, but the group shot actually makes them look kind of sweet.

Love your thrifted shirt, and your kitty is so cute (even if possessed)

Madeline Quaint said...

Haha, the owls sometimes show their creepy face, sometimes they're being cute. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

I think they simply don't recognise the brands, otherwise they'd ask more for them...

Madeline Quaint said...


Madeline Quaint said...

I love cheap things too! :) I'm too used to second hand stuff now and find even the cheapest chainstore expensive... I guess it's a good thing for my budget at least. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thanks! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Yeah, the owls are really on the borderline between menacing and harmless... But they definitely make you take a closer look.

I love Nyafi, our warrior cat... She picked up too much fighting spirit on the streets before we took her in. But when she's not annoyed, she is very cuddly... :)

Caroline said...

CAT CLOTHES ARE THE BEST!!! That jacket was a bargain too :) Hope you're enjoying halloween! xxxx

Taylor said...

Love the color of that Miu Miu shirt with the denim-- great look!

Lora said...

You are totally tugging at my hear strings with this post. First, the cat t-shirt. I can't resist them, I think I own close to ten. Secondly, the real cat, who is adorable. And thirdly, the creepy/cute owl statues are so neat! I need to get one for my little city garden to scare aware those pesky pigeons.

SkippySays said...

Love both your t-shirt and the shirt- what a great thrifting find!!

Feathers & Freckles said...

Those owls are awesome! So is this outfit - that bag is so lovely.

Also, I'm loving the updates you made to your blog, the new header looks great! :)

chill air & perfume said...

Okay, I love cats and owls, so this post really appeals to me! Love that t-shirt.. what a great thrift find!

I found your blog through Feathers & Freckles, and I just love it! Hope you'll check mine out, too!


Madeline Quaint said...

I aggree, I need more cat-clothes! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you! Means a lot from a denim expert! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Our Nyafi is a real character, she's adorable and lovely - when she feels like it. :D
The owls are available to order if you're really interested. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you, I'm still trying out options with the new layout, but this splattered backround was calling my name...

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you, that's nice to hear! :)

BoulevarddelaMadeleine said...

Your yellow cat shirt is adorable. I love your thrift find too. The fact that it is Miu Miu and only costed $3, I'm green with envy:)
I also enjoyed those owl sculptures. They are so creepy and perfect for Halloween. It c reinforces my fear in birds...just/kidding..okay maybe not so much:)

GlamKitten88 said...

Your jacket is gorgeous. The poofy sleeves are perfect!

Kira said...

I love that t-shirt, so cute!

Madeline Quaint said...

No need to fear these owls, they're quite amicable as they're permanently grounded. :)

I think second hand shop owners are not always recognising brands, or they don't even bother to check... So this shirt/jacket was just hung among the others. Lucky the puffy sleeves called out for me. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you, the sleeves were what attracted me to pick it up - and when I saw the label I had to have it of course. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thanks, Kira!

Jamillah said...

I think the sculptures are totally beautiful not creepy! They have such haunting faces I totally want one.

This might be my favorite outfit of yours. The mustard color and brown are so sophisticated but the fun print keeps the whimsy that is you :).

Madeline Quaint said...

I'm so glad you like the sculptures! I think their expressions are priceless too. They're available to order if you're really fancying them. :)

Badtastetoasttoast said...

Aaaawww I love cats and owls! You look so cute, the shirt is amazing, can't believe it's Miu Miu and that it was such a steal! The jacket is awesome too, really nice puffy sleeves :) And I love the bag! I basically love everything about your outfit!

Madeline Quaint said...

Yay, that's nice to hear! :)

Filipa Moreno said...

Your t-shit is so adorable! =)
And I would love to have those owls on my yard!

love, pi*

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you! The owl are available to order, Filipa, so they can fly to your yard as well. :)

Shybiker said...

What a beautiful t-shirt! In fact, the whole outfit is lovely.

And I like your snow-on-birthday story. Very appealing. Thanks for the wishes!

Dizzy Tea said...

Julie Lan said...
