Tuesday Treasures

Since our wonderful Toby died,(I have blogged about him before) we have not had another dog of our own. These are our little Granddogs, Maggie, very muddy after playing in the wet garden, and Seymour, happily posing for the camera. They come to us whenever their families are away from home. They treat our place as their personal holiday resort,(be it ever so humble) and have us twisted around their paws, (a bit like the Grandkids really).

What would life be without the love and devotion of our pets?

Treasure from Russia

My treasure this week is a memento of my recent trip to Russia. A hand painted set of Matryoshka Dolls I bought at the beautiful Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul in St Petersburg. The set has ten pieces in all the little one smaller than a pea, but still with her tiny face painted on.

Teddy Bears Picnic

This is Ernest, a bear I made quite a while ago, he normally sits with a group of teddies in a small cane rocking chair in my hallway, but today he would love to join the other bears at Melody's Teddy Bears Picnic, he has his key to get back in when the picnic is all over.
