Our new fur baby

As some of you know we lost our sweet little Pixie dog
to cancer last year

This spring we knew it was time
to start looking for a new
"Fur Baby"
Decisions, decisions
What breed, what size,
shedding or no shedding
I had already decided on a name
Lacy Mae
(a good southern name) 
We lived on the internet researching dog breeders.
.....then one day hubby called me and said
"I think I've found Lacy Mae"
That's her in the middle between her two brothers
As soon as I got home we called Susan at

I can't speak highly enough about
John & Susan
at Dream Maker Puppies
They are wonderful folks
and first class breeders

The next weekend we were headed to
Willis, Texas to meet our new fur baby
Miss Lacy Mae
Toy Schnauzer
We are in love with this sweet baby and she is doing a great job of training us to
be her parents!  She has taken over
our lives and hearts!!
 helping out in the kitchen

relaxing on the screened porch

Playing with her many toys

or just showing off!


Lots to love about Lacy Mae!

When we lost Pixie it left and huge hole in our hearts
Lacy Mae is doing her best to fill it right up!!

Bird Cage Lamp

Last Saturday my girlfriend, Judy
and I went to the city wide garage sale
in Cuero, Texas
We found some good bargains
One was a $3.00 bird cage
I brought it home, took off the
plastic red bottom
and turned the top into a lamp!!
Have you ever seen a bird cage turned into a lamp?
It's definitely different!

Kind of eclectic don't you think
Every Little Birdie says
Now the question?????
Will I keep it or sell it.

Junkin' @ the Antique Spring Show

My sister and I spent two days
at the Round Top Antique Fair
We shopped till we dropped!
Let's wander around and see all the
wonderful treasures to be had......

It was a little chilly and windy the first day
but miles and miles of shopping
will warm you up!

We're walking, we're shopping

we're touching, we're feeling

we're looking and oh yes

The second day my niece and
her new puppy "Lord Nelson" joined us
He was a hit at the show!
Everyone loves a puppy!!

Nelson finally had to give up his
chariot to make space for 
 all our treasures and junk,
but he was a real sport
and loved his day with the girls shopping 

Wouldn't this be a good time to
crawl up in this pretty bed and take
a short nap????

If you want it.... they got it!!!!
there is one of everything at this
awesome show
 Here's our loot shoot-

Mine - lots of silver pieces, an enamel coffee pot,
linens, gloves, pearls, jewelry and more!
 My sister's - blue bottle, aluminum tray and pitcher, yellow bowl, silver ware, linens, big
jar, pretty pin for our Mom, and more!!
 and last my niece's -
a lemon press (so cool), antlers and pearls,
globe and cute pillow!
Every Little Birdie says-
We can't wait to go back to the Antique Fair in the fall!
