Let it snow!

Well, maybe not right now. There's still outdoor work to be done!

Thankfully, the only snowflakes I'm seeing at present are the ones on my newest creation. Go visit our shop and see what's new (quite a bit this last week) and take a better peek at this pretty snowflake box.

Have a blessed week, everyone!

Our new pup

OK, so he's a virtual pup, but that means you can play with him, too! On the right side of the page scroll down and you'll see him waiting for you. Click on the first two buttons to feed him, click on the white arrow to get his attention. The black arrow gets him to sit, click twice for lie down, 3 times for stretch out and hold down your left mouse clicker and make a circle around him to get him to roll over. My personal favorite is when you click on his ball and he chases it. Click on the little movie camera button and you can follow the chase. Leave him alone for a bit and he'll pace, have something to eat and drink, then fall asleep.

I love fun, silly stuff like this!

I've named the fish - or 1 at least. Now we must think up a good name for this cute pup! Suggestions?

Here fishy, fishy fishy

There's a new addition to our blog! Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you'll find our busy little fish tank full of 5 very hungry fish.

Stop in anytime to help me feed them. Just click your mouse anywhere on their tank area and food will appear. Watch out for the feeding frenzy!

Now what should we name them????

Shoot Like a Girl Photography

A tulip reaching toward the sun in Brooklyn. Ripples in the water in Venice. A random phrase in Austria. Lauren Jonik captures moments in time with aid of her camera and a fantastic eye for beauty and wisdom in the simplest of things.

You can find Lauren's images at her website, Shoot Like A Girl Photography and at her expanding shop at Etsy. To enjoy more of her work, you can follow Shoot Like A Girl on Facebook. Maybe you'll even see some photos of her contest winning cat, Sadie. Always a treat.

Here's a recent photo of Lauren's that's a favorite of mine. Enjoy!

If I had room for a sheep, some chickens, a cow, a horse or two and some goats, I'd have them. But since I don't, this wonderful kit is the next best thing.

There are just some things in life that make you happy the moment you lay eyes on them. This adorable little sheep sold by Bear Creek Design does just that. I dare you not to smile.
