I found this cute wire cloche candleholder at Michaels this week…

I love this picture of my son…he is so handsome and smart and I am so proud of him.

My mom has been visiting for the past week and she brought her dog Jack…he’s a Jack Russell Terrier (you didn’t see that coming did ya?)…

Jack and Milo in the sun, hey guys, if it is too hot, why not move to the shade?

I had my chimney cleaned…just had my roof replaced this fall and probably the jiggling around on the roof caused a blockage in the pipe just above the stove.  I started a fire before I realized this and had to carry the smoldering logs out after I figured out there was no air flow!  Lovely…by the way, that is a mummified bat in the left front of the stove!  Ewwww!

I made 32 washcloths from old bath towels on Saturday!

I saw this on the way to work one morning this past week, yep, I stopped and took the picture!

This holly bush was outside my dentist’s office and I have always wanted to photograph it, so I took advantage of the fresh snow to get this shot!

Jack is smiling here…the weekend after Christmas I had five smallish dogs in my 1300 square foot house!  It was wild.  I felt like I should have had a license to have that many kennels in the house.

The three rat terriers (or the rat pack as I call them) were happy to go home at the end of the weekend!

The paperwhites are blooming wonderfully for the past 3 weeks…I planted three pots of them about 10 days apart so I have had a great show the past 3 weeks!
