Little Smiles

I found this absolutely hysterically cute photo on Scottish Terrier and Dog News Blog, a fabulous and informative blog by the very funny Ann!!! If you haven't visited this blog, stop over for a visit and you will undoubtedly laugh! There are some great photos of all kinds of dogs worldwide and grooming tips as well. Don't these Wheaten Scotty Dogs put a smile on your face!!?? I can hear the rooooooty rooooooo from the guy on the left. Scotties have a very distinctive bark - when they do bark you know it!
Some favorite little things of mine. Lallee made me the tiny little white felt scotty. I just love him!! When I get "blue" I look at these sweet little things and I cannot help but feel better. The little rag doll has a little tag with a reminder to SMILE! (BTW: Did you know it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile?)

Just a little shelf with some vintage doo-dads on them . I love the little grouping of children and the old tin has cute little bluebirds and children on it, too. It is an old English biscuit tin that I found years back at a favorite antique shop in Pescadero, CA.
Now I just love this old needlepoint. So very true!
Y'all have a great weekend!

Hi Becky, all your treasures make me smile. The needlework is lovely and I like the sentiment too, but I especially like the little yellow bird. I just love little birdies. Hugs, Linda

Lovely collection but my favourites, apart from the Scotties, are still the baked goods.

Thanks so much for the kind words.
