Pet Portrait GiveAway and a Thank You

Our friend Casper Bear's mom is a fabulous artist and she is having a pet portrait give-away.
Make sure you check this out! All you have to do is leave a comment and follow her blog. It's that simple for a chance at a gorgeous portrait!
This is one of her works. Isn't it stunning, even if it is a kitty!

Our dear friends, Aunt Lydia and Dave sent a birthday pressie on Monday for our mom's birthday.
They must know that she ADORES poppies because the beautiful birthday card was loaded with poppies.  Aunt Lydia sent mom a handmade gorgeous poppy fabric change purse.   She also sent purple poppy seeds that mom can plant and have grape poppies galore!
 Isn't this the most beautiful grape poppy!  Mom can't wait for them to begin blooming next year!
 Aunt Lydia also sent her some pretty fancy scissors so her Airedale projects will come out even better than before!   She has already tried them out and they work beautifully!  Thank you so much!

And that's not all.
Dave sent me, Miss Molly, puppy teething duck biscuits. yummm
Why do I look so depressed?
I have to share with Mitch.  hehehe
 Yes, Mitch is a very happy boy!
Thank you so very much, Aunt Lydia and Dave.  You guys are the bestest and always so superthoughtful!

Love ya lots,
Molly (I love it when my name is first)
and Mitch

Miss Molly,
You are posting already all by yourself? How grown up you are.

Of course those poppies are lovely, but momma keeps thinking of the Wizard of Oz. Oh dear.


Gus said...

Oh, I hope y'all post pictures of the poppies next year!

And Miss Molly...blogging is all about sharing, so be a good little blogger and share with Mitchie!

First, I very happy birthday wish to your Mom! Although belated, we think it's perfectly fine to celebrate the entire month, at least!

And what a gorgeous portrait-she is indeed a fabulous artist. We're off to visit her blog and enter.

That is a beautiful color for a Poppy.

Sharing is a tough concept to learn whether you're a young dog or a young human. Some never do learn and we call them politicians.
