Well hello peeps! Here in my parts summer is ending and autumn begins on the 22nd. In the southern hemisphere you're going from winter to spring. Any special plans for the new seasons?
I plan on squeezing in one last bit of summer by the sea.
But autumn colors are beginning to creep into my art (more on that another post:) For now I have this to share today...
On the main art table a tag in progress. For T Stands for Tuesday I will share my green tea in the covered mug. I never did get that tag together but instead made this one:
Linking to Tag Tuesday (Paris theme), Try It On Tuesday (My Friend theme), and the Simon Monday Challenge (Shimmer and Shine). I may be pushing the envelope with the Simon theme as I'm not a real shimmer/shine kinda girl but oh how I love just a touch with the sequins:)
These are sitting in a corner of my art table too:
While continuing to sort /clean out things I found this bird shaped chipboard book and decided to use it. I simply covered the cardboard with napkins to begin and hope to finish and share them in my next post which will also include a little giveaway ;)
And on an unrelated subject I want to introduce you to my dear friend LuAnn's new addition to their family. Meet Daisy May!
in this post. Long story short, LuAnn found her on a FB rescue not far from us and when she and her husband went to meet her-they didn't leave without her. Get this- the shelter named her Angel because she didn't have a name. LuAnn used to call Ginger her "angel". Daisy May was born on - Valentine's Day- same day she lost her Ginger. Is this divine intervention or what? It still brings tears to my eyes.
Daisy is 7 mos. old and the vet thinks a mix of terrier and lab. She's quite shy yet so it took a bit for her to warm up to me and trust me but by the end of the day we were good friends:) .
Here she is all pooped out lying right behind my chair in the kitchen while LuAnn and I were enjoying some lunch. She is such a sweetheart and is SO good!
LuAnn sent me this photo of Daisy May cuddling the next day with the toy I gave her:
Yes, it truly tugs at my heartstrings and has me yearning for another one too since we lost our Annie last June. But I don't know if I'll ever be ready to go through such heartbreak again. And besides Bill and I do love to be able to pick up and go away whenever we feel like it-and I will never kennel a dog of mine. I'll just have to visit Daisy often:)
Be well, and happy autumn- or spring - wherever you may be.
