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!
This is how our back yard looked this morning and the first day of spring will arrive tomorrow. Naturally, we are thrilled to see the snow but mom and dad aren't!
We spent the day at Crumpie's working on the cupola project. It's coming along nicely with its coat of fresh white paint!
This is the roof portion. It's up on its side so that the "overhang" could be primed and painted.
We had company come today and they helped dad lower the cupola roof to the floor so that the roof boards and shingles can be applied. This might not look heavy but trust me - it is!
The guys were talking "shop" and Jeff had Molly's ball in his hand and he forgot all about tossing it to her. She was being ignored and she was NOT happy! oops! haha
We love our days at Crumpie's. We get to run and play inside as much as we want to!
Mom bought us each a stuffed bone and this one has some of the peanut butter stuffing still inside. Of course, we both want it!
This is the scene out Crumpie's door~
It sure doesn't look much like spring!
Our newest blog book has arrived. We love our blog books and we order one every year. It's our adventures with lots of pictures.
This one is Molly and me on the cover.
And me and baby Molly and Maggie with her angel wings on the back cover.
Life goes on~~~
We lost a very dear friend on Monday. Doug was one of our Northford Timber Framer brothers and he was one of the nicest and friendliest and most complimentary and generous friends that we have ever known.
RIP, Doug. We will miss you for a very long time.
