Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart fail;

But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:25-26

Winner And Stuff

Good Morning my friends! I hope you are well. I am the last one in the house to get the sore throat, cough and nasty cold. =( Oh well!

I have never shown you my "poodle display board". That is what I call it anyways. I purchased this a few years ago at T.J.Maxx. Love it. It works perfectly to display my many poodle cards and pictures. I am a true poodle nut. Several years ago I bid on an old collection of nothing-but-poodle greeting cards. Brian protested, "But they are all used!!" "I know. That does not matter.", I told him. ;) You see, I knew I wanted to save the fronts of the cards and show them off. I have fun with it.
 Now the print you see here, is not one of the cards. This was a page from an old book actually. I had a lot of fun reading everyone of those greeting cards from the sixties and seventies. From one nutty poodle couple to me!! ;) Glad to give them another life. You can see I put my tiny poodles up top too. I change those around also. I go with different themes and seasons.

I finished listening to Emma by Jane Austen on CD.It was good but not my favorite book by Jane.

I have been stitching away and finishing too! I will show you those in my next post.

What a ding-a-ling! I forgot today was Friday, not Thursday. So I did draw the name of the winner for the Flora McSample Heart Sampler pattern this morning, not yesterday. Karen! I have emailed you Karen. Please send me your postal address. =)

Every day we let Winky fly out of his cage. He makes his laps around the front room, then lands on top of his cage. After a bit, he climbs back into his cage and I shut the door for him. ;) You can see how exciting it is for Mabel and Henry when Winky comes out flying. ooOoo! So exciting!
We  are having beautiful autumn weather here all week. It has been in the 70's and sunny most every day.♥

Thanks for stopping by friends. Have a beautiful day!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

What a cute idea for using the poodle greeting cards! You're so creative and clever!

Your puppies staring up at the bird cage gave me such a chuckle. I used to have a Cockatiel and my poodles would do the same thing when he went out for his flight. lol They just love to watch the birds!

Blessings - Julie
