Rest and Read

Thank you so much for the words of ease. I spent the morning catching up on much needed mail and necessities. The magical image above is a gift from a wonderful reader who has recently taken the leap to blogging. Miss Carolynn of Chenille Cottage

Beautiful wrapped and delivered in the most amazing penmanship. I carefully opened it to find vintage gifts.

The prints are 3D Autographs.  Aged to a wonderful tan than cannot be improvised.

Speckled with water spots and trimmed in blue and ivory frames.

Gingham smocked apron in orange to study and remake.
Thank you Carolynn...they are beautiful.

A recent swap with the Button Floozies brought me a needle book from Miss Velma at Down Our Country Road

Velma has put so many wonderful details in this little gift.

Even my daughter tried to sneak it...Thank you Velma...I adore it.

This morning as I finished picking up the breakfast dishes and corralling the clutter I noticed a theme going on in the house that I wasn't quite in on.
Reagan, obviously waiting patiently for a of my boys forgot his phone this morning! Does anyone else see that he is giving me the stink eye? 

Murphy, laying claim to HIS real estate.

Poor Phog, he just doesn't know how big he is.
I was not invited to this morning nap party but they are aware that I will need to be at the next one or their breakfast will be delayed.

Teri...send me an email and I will help you with flickr.

Blogging friends are the "best" kind of friends. Precious treasures. Your furry family is equally sweet. Love their morning nap pics.

I love the print with the children and the balloons.
Your dogs are so funny. My dogs will get me up early. After I let them out and give them breakfast and sit down withmy coffee, I will look over and there they are fast asleep and so comfy looking. My Springer lays on my lap, he doesn't know he is too big and I just let him.

I hope you can hear me giggling! What fun pups. I love that Phog's extra length was covered by the footstool. It seems we all think of you when we see peachy orange. Perfect for you, what a sweet gift! Elizabeth

Hi, Renne! I'm so behind on your posts! Glad to see you're gettin' some bloggy love. :) Those pics are so cute!

Funny, I forgot all about the button floosies...

I was looking through some of your old images posted for ideas for E's new tag swap. I think i might want to use a pic from your Teddy bears picnic if that's okay.

I'm laughing at the sleepy animals...mostly Phog! So cute!
Velma's little needle book is so cute. I'll be sure to visit Chenille Cottage. :)

How sweet of your blogging friends to think of you and send you such nice gifts!

Your fur friend look so relaxed in heir favorites stops. Wish my dog would sit alone. She has to be under my foot every waking moment. I actually have to tell her to go sit down or make her go outside just to have some space!!! Got to love her though. She is a sweetheart.

I didn't know you had a bulldog! What a cutie- my husband LOVES bulldogs, but we haven't taken the plunge and gotten a dog yet... All your furbabies are so cute!

Terri said...

I am not sure how to email you...but, I did activate the email account on your website:) When I try to use your email button, my imac automatically switches to their mail account which isn't the mail account I use:) And it doesn't let me email out. If signing on to your email notices doesn't wrok....I will just add my email account in a comment. We live in Kansas and both my kids started college last year, so am really enjoying getting back in the swing of crafts:) And your blog is one of my very favorites.

WHat beautiful gifts ! I love the pic's of your animal brood taking their siesta. I had to laugh at the one of Phog. That was too cute! He would have my Max for an hor d'ourve.(however you spell it). Have a good day today, Renee.

susiek said...

Really love your post today. Such lovely gifts, and the photos of your dogs on their chairs are great! Thanks for the smile.

It looks like the perfect day for a nap!! Look at all the lovely gifts! You have such talented friends!

Nan said...

Catching up on your last two blog posts here...oh my those pictures are so wonderful and ring a bell for me. I think they must be from the 40's I just can't tell you how much I adore those sweet old things!! The dogs, how cute. I see you spoil yours too. The cat, well cats do just what they want don't they, no real rules for them!!

Kathy said...

Renee, your sweet pets have got the life - especially Phog. That picture cracks me up!

Barbara said...

(catching up on a week's worth of blog reading here...)I am glad to see that other people live as we do and let the pets pretty much take over everything.

donna said...

Renee what wonderful gifts from Carolynn.
Your fur babies look so content and cute. Gotta love them

Hi Renee.......I am scratching my head right now trying to figure out how I missed this precious and loving post? And, would you believe the comment I made was intended for one of your other posts???Yikes!!

Now to give proper thanks for your thoughtful post...I'm so glad you enjoyed your package and frankly, I think it's about time I started putting another one together for you. You are a dear and so very much on my heart.

I continue to pray for you and your precious family. God is so ever present and right there by your side these days.

Do accept my apology for my weirdly timed comment...I still can't figure out how I goofed up!

Big hugs,
Carolynn xoxo
