These are my Shih Tzu that I painted in art class. I have tried to paint flowers and bird but my love is painting pet portaits. From the top is Maggie, Lilly, then Hogan and Zoe. I will paint my new Great Dane Lexi when she gets a little older. Lucy our first Great Dane is at the bottom. We lost her in 2008 to old age. She lived 11 years. We miss her deeply.

It is so inviting to see all the beautiful colors of ribbon she has. So as you walk into the building just turn right and you can't miss her.
Your eyes will be drawn to the beautiful colors and display of her ribbon.

Today was so much fun. I met two of my close friends at Borders for some fun gossip, coffee, and to learn more about blogging. I main reason was to get help with the Blogging but it ended up being a bonding between the 3 of us. At one time we all worked at the same Antique shop together. Now Lonnie and I are in Cotton Depot in Monroe and Dari is at The Queen of Hearts in Buford. You need to visit these two gals on their blogs. Dari is the musingsofaseawitch.blogspot.com and Lonnie is piggystales.blogspot.com. Dari is the pro at this blogging thing and has really helped us out today. We really enjoyed each others company and plan to meet again for more bonding. I don't know about you but FRIENDS are very important to me. True friends!!! You can meet a lot of true friends in blogging.True friends are friends that believe in you, are there for you, will laugh with you not at you, they like what you like and if they don't they support you. I am that friend. That's what kind of friend I like to have and that's what I call TRUE FRIENDS. Lonnie and Dari are just a few of my true friends. I have a very special friend that I went to High School with and she lives just outside of Buffalo New York. That is where I am from. The town is call Clarence Center. It's a great town. My friends name is Debbie. We have gone through a lot together. We are Best Friends! I moved to Fl in 1976 and we have kept in touch ever since. We are always there for each other even though there is a long distance. That is where I learned about True Friends. That's been close to 40 years keeping in touch with a friend. We don't talk every week and sometimes it could be a month before we talk. We don't even see each other that much but when we talk on the phone it's like we lived next door. I wish in this New Year that everyone finds a TRUE FRIEND because life is too short to not even have one! Cheers to Girlfriends!

After Christmas is put safely up the attic I enjoy a fresh new look.
I have a thing about birdcages, vintage lace, mirrors and vintage silk flowers. They all seem to go together. I am really looking forward to the warm weather so I can decorate my front porch with all my birdcages and flowers.
I hope you all are staying warm.

Yes, We have snow in Atlanta GA. All our school are closed, the roads are slick with ice. I'm from Buffalo, NY and this use to be a joke to me when I first came to the south. In order for the schools to close in NY the snow shovel trucks couldn't get out. As the years went by and maybe because I am older I wouldn't get out in it. I think the ice is worse in the south. Also in Buffalo you have the right tiers for your cars. I miss how beautiful the first snow was up north but my blood has thinned over the years of being in the south. I think I am a Southern Girl now. Everyone please be safe and dress warm.

Happy Birthday Hannah!
My daughter Hannah was born 18 years ago. Wow that makes me 18 years older. Anyway, she has been such a blessing in my life that I wanted to do something special besides giving her some gifts. It wasn't a big thing but I decided just to have some for her friends just show up for cake. It worked out perfect. The first group arrived and Hannah just thought they stopped by because it was her birthday and they were just being the good friends that they are. A little while later someone knocked on the door and three more arrived. This is strange she said, WOW! Then as they were walking in 2 more guest were coming. Hannah turned to me and said Is this a Surprise party. I think she was really SURPRISED.
Here are a few pictures of her special night. I LOVE that girl!
