Mending Monday--Gone to the Dogs

Seems it has all gone to the dogs today. I was out back watering one our new shrubs all dressed and ready for Sunday dinner when my little Lincoln came out of the blue and jumped up and bit at the hose end.  All I could do is walk in and straight face tell my husband........"You can water next time." I dripped my way back to the bedroom to dry off.

Sweet french poodle decals in shades of 1950.

Hang delicately on the kitchen wall.

Keeping all the household papers, mail and keys in order.

A charming piece to say hello and goodbye everyday.

Mending Monday brings a group of puppies.

Who doesn't love a puppy with balloons tied to his tail! Sounds like your watering session was not too relaxing...usually I just loose myself in the quite of my yard. (altho with all the rain this year, the garden hose has not made an appearance).

LOL, our pets bring all sorts of surprises into our lives, don't they? Love the sweet little puppy embroidery patterns. I turned my air on today. I know it's only the 2nd of April, but it was just too hot and humid. Crazy KS weather!

My God, how you American women have so much talent for what is beautiful?! Everything they do is perfect. . .
Renee, I live far from you, but I have a great affection for you like I've known you a long time.
You are very sweet!
I wonder how he manages to take care of your home, kids and still make beautiful things. . . I confess that I do all this too, but almost no time for my crafts.
I think you have much more practical than we are Brazilian, here we have a housemaid to help us in day-to-day. I'm out right now and do not intend to have more.
I sent an e-mail, ok?
God be with you, dear!
