Morning Sun

Good morning,

This morning the sun came up and reflected beautifully on the snow on the ground to  light the leaded glass window in our main staircase.  This window is on the back of the house.  The morning sun is on the front of the house.  Without the snow on the ground providing the reflected light, this window would be dark at this time of the day.

So pretty!

Happy Winter!

Just Out of the Shower

Good morning,

Here's Erik, just in from the snow outside.  I always dry them off when they come in from the rain or snow.  He likes being wrapped in his towel.  He's ready to settle down with his unicorn for the night.

Is that sweet or what....

More Snow - Again

Good morning,

Here we go again.  I took this image last night when I opened the door to let the pups out for a potty trip.  None of them wanted to go out as you can see from the lack of paw prints.

The snow continues.  I hope it is under control before our Cincinnati Pops concert later today....

Stay warm and comfy, wherever you are!

Dock Diving - Day Two

Good morning,

Today's images are of Wendy's second jump at the Dock Diving Invitational Events in Orlando, Florida, last month.
At home she literally flies down the main staircase and launches from about step number eight to the first floor.
We call her our Flying Labrador.
It appears she can also walk on water.  ;)
Splash Down!
She absolutely loves this!
 Here she comes!

 You can see the distance markers on the side of the pool.

 At home Wendy practices outside in a real lake.  It's too cold now, but in the Spring she'll be back out there again. 

That's it!  Our sweet little Wendy truly loves the water.

Wendy the Dock Diver

Good morning,

Today's images are of our Wendy at the Dock Diving Invitational in Orlando, Florida, last month.  Only dogs who had achieved qualifying points during the year were invited to participate.
Today's series of images is of one of her "splashes."
I just love her concentration and her ears are a hoot!

 Splash Down!
 Almost...
 Almost...
 Almost...
 Got it!
 Wendy absolutely loves doing this.  When she sees the pool she immediately wants to jump!

She didn't win any awards this time, but it was wonderful practice for another year.

Such fun!

Back to Green and Pink

Good morning,

The Tissue Toppers are finished and listed in the shop - see yesterday's post.

I'm finally back on the lavender-pink and green afghan blanket.  These colors are just so pretty together!  It will be another few days and this will also be finished and listed in the shop.  It's a bed, couch, recliner size and prefect colors for Valentine's Day. 

What are you working on now?

All the best,
Lois

Toilet Tissue Toppers

Good morning,

For some reason our Toilet Tissue Toppers have been very popular in the shop this week so I've spent a couple of days restocking.  I still have to add ribbons to the white and lavender toppers in the image, photograph/format the photos, and write listings for them all.

Check them out in the shop here.    Click the link and scroll down.
