This Is Where It Started

Hey everybody! A blessed good morning to you! So, this is where the love of poodles all began.

"Me& Julio"

Here I am with Julio, our silver toy poodle. I would have been almost 5 years old. We are in our backyard, in front of the pear tree and pool. Julio was adopted by us as an adult. We didn't have him for all that long. As you can see we loved him to bits.


Doesn't he look cool in his baby blue and white hat with baby blue rhinestone color too?! Very seventies!


Sweet Mabel

Mabel was a black 2 lb puppy when we bought her three years ago. She is grey now, with a bit of silver.



This is the cake I made on Friday for Emerson's 16th birthday. He wanted a yellow cake with white frosting and this kind of design in chocolate frosting. :)

I am stitching on Brightneedle's Garden Party. It is a cute stitch. I had to change two floss colors so they would be more visible on the light sand linen.

Stitching and praying and barely reading,
Vickie

She just got over a serious bout of Paarvo viris, barely made it.

Love the saving of the toads, that is so me! :)
