Hard At Work



Do you think I can dig to China? Man! This is hard work!!
I think I need a tasty beverage .... glub, glub, glub - burp.

Now a little snoooooooze will do! I am beat!


Disclaimer: Doogs did not consume any alcoholic beverages nor will he be participating in any 12 step program in the near future. However, if you must know....he WILL knock over your Guiness bottle if you leave it on the ground. Afterall, he is a true Scotsman and likes his ale!


**********

Thank you all for your interests in the Sweet Dream pillows. I will be putting some on ETSY by Thursday (sorry, I said Wednesday earlier however I didn't quite get them all done). Like Mr. Doogie, I have been busy at work here with sewing and setting up a little space at a local antique mall. With that being said, I will be taking a wee bit of a break but will be back this weekend to announce a blog giveaway in celebration of Valentine's Day - because I HEART YOU!

YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

Doogs is just adorable...did I ever ask you if he sheds? We are in the process possibly getting a dog. I think we have narrowed it down to a Golden Doodle, but Doogs is so adorable....

Oh that TOO CUTE DOOGIE! What a riot! So you are taking a space at an antique mall! Good for you! How exciting! Enjoy the process and the sales as well! You'll have to keep us posted!!!

Mumzie said...

Doogs is sooo cute! Looks like he really enjoys the beach. Our Conner boy has never seen the beach; but does enjoy a bottle or two. Sand might be a good experience for him, perhaps we'll plan a trip. I enjoy Sweet Cottage Dreams very much. Thanks for your beautiful posts. I love your pillows! Hugs to Doogs,
Mumzie

Linda Crispell said...

I thought Doogs was digging in snow and then I looked closer and realized it was sand! No wonder he needs a beer after all that hard work.

Eileen said...

For a split second there I thought he was digging in snow. But then I came to my senses and remembered where you lived!

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

I wanted to squeeze in a note to tell you how tickled I was that you visited my lil blog. i'm still new to all of this blogging and it can surely become intimidating at times. Especially when i visit blogs like yours with hundreds of friends.

your creations are beautiful. I too love creating all kinds of confections. Your give away is very generous.

Sweet wishes,
Sara
