Dog Days of Summer Memories

We got a box in the mail last Thursday!

 It was from Terry at Black Heath Farms!

Mom had seen photos previously and fallen instantly in love and last week, mom wrote to Terry and asked her if "Maxx" was still available.  He was!

This is the lid of the memory box.

 And this is the lid and the bottom together!
These pictures don't do this work of art justice at all! There is so much detail! It's absolutely fabulous and mom feels like the luckiest person in the world to own it!

 The memory box was inspired by Terry's dog, Maxx.  One Spring day many years ago, while Maxx slept on the lawn, a butterfly landed on the petal of a flower behind him.  When Terry photographed the scene, it appeared that the butterfly was resting on Maxx's ear!
This beautiful memory was born, and is now recreated.
Mom is in love!
 And once again, Molly gets to wear the tissue paper!
 It is absolutely beautiful, Terry!
We are just thrilled to be the proud new owners of Dog Days of Summer Memories~~
Thank you so very, very much!
Terry, we promise to give Maxx a pat when he's been a very good boy!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly
