Happy Tuesday everyone!



Spencer is thinking about starting a blog of his own called - The Life and Times of a Naughty Poodle. He thinks his full name is Spencer What Are You Eating Now!



This is a dear little blue poodle that I picked up over the weekend. He doesn't eat anything he's not supposed to.




Here's a sneak peak at some of the birthday goodies I got from my kids. Do they know what I like or what?




Little Red Riding Hood was my theme this year. Wasn't the table pretty? Lindsey made the cupcakes and the pretty Red Riding Hood decoration.




What did I get?! I'll tell you next week. I don't want to bore you too much with my birthday.




Are you familiar with the blog Sew Ritzy Titzy? If not, you should check it out. It's one of those you just want to hang around and visit awhile.

I am so very proud to say that Mary Ellen of Artkissed is being published in the new Vintage Halloween Somerset magazine. Is that exciting news or what! Look for it on the stands Aug. 1st. I am just so proud of her.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. Oh my gosh Spencer is just adorable...as you can see I have a fondness for poodles too. I absolutely LOVE the poodle figurine..I always keep my eyes open for poodle stuff but I haven't found anything that is even remotely as cute as that. I also scrolled down on your blog and LOVE the pillowcase...how cute is that with the poodles & balloons?!? Looks like you had a fabulous birthday!!!

Oh my gosh,
it's like looking at a mirror image of Alfie Twyla! They do have the same coloring. I definitely think he should start his own blog.

Twyla, thank you so much for the award. I haven't been blogging lately because our computer is turtle slow...needs to go to the 'puter doctor. Hopefully my hubby will get it fixed soon.

Btw, your poodles are adorable. I grew up with poodles and we had plans to get a poodle, but our dear friends gave us Bella!

Knot Garden said...

I can recommend those two books, and I'm waiting for an order of dishcloth cotton to arrive, LOL!
Sounds like you had a lovely day.

Sweet Sage said...

Thanks So Much! So sweet of you. I haven't been nominated for an award of any kind since the eighth grade! I am quite flattered!

Hi Twyla...Thank you for stopping by my blog...I always love to receive comments! I have both of the books you have in one of your birthday photos (Happy Birthday)...They are two of my favorites...I especially love "Where Women Create", although I must admit to being very jealous of the gal who has an entire carriage house on her property, as her "studio" :)...I've also just learned that in November 2008, there will be a magazine coming out like the book, "Where Women Create"...Not sure if that will be the title of the magazine...Take care, Katie
