Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas !  I thought I would share a few Christmas photos of Tate.  He will soon be 3 years old. . . I think it is time for another one. 

Speaking of another one,   I got a case of MPS (Multiple Poodle Syndrome)  Yes,  I rescued another Standard Poodle.  Her  name is Stella and she is a wild child.  My hairdresser thinks I should be writing Children's books. " The misadventures of Stella the Big White Poodle." 

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Have you made your own little garden in a jar yet? Terrariums are so easy to make and easy to care for. I encourage you to give it a try !

The first thing you will need is the container. Then you just layer, starting with an inch of gravel, 1/2 inch of garden charcoal, few inches of potting soil, plants ( be sure they need the same amount of water and sunlight), accessories and water! Could not be any easier!

I am really enjoying the one I made for my family room. I plan to make a few others for gifts . . .

Merry Christmas !

Hey guys, Long time, no see. I just wanted to share some photos I took yesterday. I am really enjoying this Christmas Season. Tate is so much fun at this age. He loves to say " HO HO HO "and is train crazy. . . We are wearing out " The Polar Express".

I am also loving my Standard Poodle!!! Let me let you in on a well kept secret. . . there is no better breed of dog ! She is the best dog in the world, so much fun! Carley is so smart and loving, I can't say enough good things about her. I will never have any other breed.

I hope everyone has a Wonderful Christmas. I miss talking with you, but I have moved on to other things. My disembarkment Syndrome illness is so much better ! I still have it, but due to all the dog walking ect. I am much better. Thanks to all of you that continue to check up on me. I love you guys!

Belgium Style

For the most part I think images like this one is what most of us think of when we think of " Belgium Style". The lack of color, things that look old and used, yet so beautifully put together.

I prefer a Belgium influence to the real thing . . . I love to celebrate the less than perfect, but I also need a bit of color.

To me the Belgium look is a look of simplicity. . . it speaks quietly and like a person of few words, will always get your attention.

Sometimes just a hint is all that's needed. It's knowing when to say , "stop". A room not afraid to have a bit less, knowing all the while, it will always be more. . .

Pet Peeve ~ Puddles

Quote by James Swan : " Never Puddle. Like shoulder pads and Lycra leggings, puddle curtains are fashion items just looking for new victims. Curtains should "break" (like a gentleman's trousers) one-half inch from the finished floor. No more and no less. Period."

Mr. Swan, I'd have to agree . . . Your thoughts?
