The WoolieDales

Mom decorated our coffee table trunk with our dear friend, Carol Usher's Wooliedales.   Miss Carol is in Heaven with my gram and gramp now.   How we miss her♥
 No one's needle felted Airedales even come close to being as adorable as hers are, in mom's opinion.
 A box arrived and it had a jingle bell collar in it.
Well, it's better than antlers, mom~
 Let's play!    I kinda like the sound of the jingle bells as I bounce through the house!
Love ya lots♥

Nature Friday

We are joining Rosy for Nature Friday~

Last weekend, we had warmer temps than we do now so my coat didn't have to come out of the closet.
There are reindeer behind me~
 These Christmas weenie dogs are in Izzy's yard.   Izzy is a German Short Haired Pointer and she barks at me and runs alongside me on her invisible fence when I walk by and I don't like it so the picture is blurry because mom and I were walking fast before Izzy came out of her house for her morning business.
 We founds soft moss and it's still green~
 And we ran into my friend, Rocky.    We are the same age and we both have lots of energy.   Sorry for the blurry picture.
 The temps dropped and it's been in the teens every morning this week and my coat came out of the closet.   I love wearing my coat!
 Before I leave the house, I always get two drinks of water.   It makes for a frozen beard!
 The duckies are losing their swimming water~
Back at home, we noticed that our Rhododendron has buds on it already but the poor leaves are cold and droopy.
 We also noticed that our Rose of Sharon flower pods are full of seeds~

In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.

Love ya lots♥

The Kitchen Tree

We don't have a big tree in our house but we do have small ones and we love them just as much as we love a big tree.

This tree is in our kitchen right next to the sink~
Make sure you don't eat any of MY cookies, Santa!
 There are lots of Molly ornies on the tree and the apples are in memory of angel Mitch♥
 Of course there MUST be a tennis ball ornie!
 And the bestest ornie for 2018  - ME☺
 These Santas are on our kitchen table~
We just love Christmas time!

Love ya lots♥

Mackie Was Here

Mackie was here for groomies today - only there seemed to be some confusion as to who was to be groomed☺
 It's you, Mackie, and not me.  Whew!
 Lookin' good, buddy~
 All done and time for a treat for both of us, even though it was Mackie that did all the work *wink wink*
 We had a short play time.......

 Until mom suggested that we join her for lunch....
You like apples, right, Mackie?
 I love apples!     Yes, please!
 Mackie's dad picked him up a short time ago.  
Maybe next time we can have more time together, Mackie.

Love ya lots♥

Gram's Handmade Ornies

When my gram was alive, she made pen and ink ornies - lots of them.
 Now that she has passed, they are even more special to us.

 She made them to give and she made them to sell.  She had her own little jigsaw and cut them all out one by one.
Gram had peeps save their Christmas cards for her and she transferred the designs onto the wood.
 And she meticulously hand painted each and every one of them. 

 We could go on and on and on showing you Gram's ornies~
 They are all so special and we love them all♥
Make sure those white furs stay on Edith and not me, mom!
 And Francesca, you can keep those reindeer antlers firmly in place on YOUR head!
Love ya lots♥

The Airedale Tree

Mom has been decorating and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.

The Airedale tree is up~
No, mom.  I will not touch any Christmas pressies.   Santa is watching and I must be good.

 This ornie is new for this year.   Bailey and Lexie's mom made it for us.   It's me in the beautiful red autumn leaves☺

 This is the tree that you see behind me in the first photo.
So far, I have escaped the reindeer ears.  Whew!

Happy December, everybody!

Love ya lots♥
