I have shared this shelf before - infact on one of my first posts.
Just thought I'd share it again. The little Scottie vase was a gift
from my sweet friend, Kathy Long, way before I ever owned a Scottie.
Miss Fi-Fi-Fo-Fum went under the knife yesterday to get fixed. I know...I know... she would have made such cute puppies! So little Miss is being pampered today. You would hardly know she had surgery less than 24 hours ago. She and Duhgall wanted to play ball this morning!
My dear friend, Jean, had me over for a fabulous lunch about a week or so ago. Do you know I didn't bring my camera! Like "duh!" - what was I thinking? Her backyard is full of beauty with (geez - let me think - 50 or so...) pots full of flowers! Note to self: go back to take pictures for a post! Jean also is a wonderful cook and she made a Rhubarb and Apple dessert with a Phyllo Dough topping that was D-VINE! The dollup (ok - huge spoonful) of fresh whipped cream was the perfect touch! Stop by her blog to get the recipe. It is a show stopper!!!
Happy Weekend!

Oh my, Miss Sadie needs to have her operation too...we adopted her a few months ago and they had not spayed her yet, I think she was already bred once or twice. We better hop to it!

LOVE your shelf, it looks so sweet!
Have a great weekend!

Oh poor baby. Mine is due soon to get fixed. I wouldn't have it any other way but man it takes my heart the first few hours afterwards. Hope she is far from the memory a day or two from now.

Get well wishes for Miss Fiona. When Bear had his little surgery the vet said to keep him still...that was a challenge! All he wanted to do was play. :) Love the shelf.

If you need a chuckle, visit Sandi at Holding Patterns who discusses taking pets to the vet for "the surgery." Too funny.

I hope that Fiona is feeling better every day.

Love your sweet vintage shelf, too. You've got it looking darling. But, of course!

Kathleen Grace said...

I'm sure Miss Fiona is being pampered into health by the whole family:>) your shelf is so pretty, you put the sweetest vintage things together!

Aw glad to hear little Fiona is doing good :) My aunt just got her cockapoo (cocker spaniel/poodle mix) fixed. Rather than use a cone to keep her from getting at the incision they put her in a baby's onesie LOL. With a little hole cut out for a tail. haha.

All the best,
Allison

Rest up sweetie.
It is best to de-sex your dog - makes life easier for doggie and owner.

Miss Jean said...

Thank you for the kind words. It was indeed a great day! And it's not 50+, it's 100+ pots. I know since we have to hand water each and every one of them since SOMEONE ate my drip system. Now who could that be? "Maggie, I said, who could that be?"

I'm glad that Miss Fiona came out of surgery just fine. She's turning out to be such a dear.

Hi Becky...
The fix our little doggies at such a young age now! I guess it is suppose to be better if they do not come in heat..healthier or something.
Sending you a hug...and I totally understand the camera thing. I just did the same exact thing on Saturday..except took the camera..NO chip!
Sending you a hug!
