Welcome home Willow June

 Meet our new little girl,

Willow June.

             She was picked up as a stray in Louisiana and after no
one claimed her transported to the Florida Rottweiler
Rescue Ranch.  This is the rescue we had gotten Bree
from, who was also an unclaimed stray pickup from

She is about a year old, sweet  and smart as the dickens.
She learned a new name in 3 days and has many commands
down pat, she even learned to pee in the designated spot in
the yard and goes there on command.

Welcome home Willow June.
You have some big paws to fill but I'm sure you
have a guardian angel named 
Brianna Rose guiding you.

Our Hearts and Home are Empty

 Our sweet girl, Briana (Bree) Rose went over the Rainbow Bridge

on July 6th at 12 noon.

Two years, two months and four days was not enough time

to spend loving this wonderful girl.  She came into our lives

as an unknown rescue but stole our hearts.

My world is empty without her.

Getting a Jump on the 4th of July

 Trisha and Daryl are ready for the

4th of July.

Cooling off in the garden courtyard.

What says 4th of July more than grilled hot dogs and
Daryl is an expert griller.

Trisha and Spot have found a shady spot to 
relax in.

Still Here......

 I am still here just been busy with other new hobbies and some volunteer projects. 

 I got into cardmaking and started making cards for several charity organizations, Letters Against Isolation, From the Heart and Soldiers Angel.  It can be a little time consuming.

Here are some general cards and birthdays cards I've made and sent out.

I've also become a volunteer for our county sheriff's office.  I am currently working one morning a week helping with the scanning of old criminal records to a new database system.  Interesting job.

So I haven't been doing much Barbie related crafting or playing.  I have been selling a few dolls on Ebay, trying to get the collection to a more manageable level.

We had guests this weekend so the sewing, craft, office room got a good cleaning.  I don't think it will look like this again until we have guests again...LOL!

Been working outside a lot getting flowers and veggies started.  But that will slow down as the heat picks up after Memorial Day.  Here are some of my flowers:

Dwarf sunflower complete with a wee bee.

Inca II Primrose Marigolds


Rose of Sharon tree and marigolds

Hope everyone is doing well!

Take care,

Birthday Gift

 I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays!

My birthday was January 27th and my sister, Aprelle, sent me the prettiest outfit for my Barbie.  She purchased it from a woman in her town (northern Wisconsin) who makes them.

It fits her perfectly and she was in need of a coat as it has been pretty chilly here in NE Florida!

Stay warm, everyone!
