Some of My Kids with Paws

Ming decided he would take care of the customers at the store counter today.
I was cleaning and rearranging  dolls and things for a "JULY YULE TREE".Ming sees a camera and he will pose instantly.
He truly is my beautiful, priceless Ming.

************************
This is   "Max"imilian.  He is just a crazy love bug.  He is drunk with cat nip in this picture.
He is a beautiful Silver Bengal with a pelt coat that resembles tarnished silver.
Max is the house jester.

Here is One of the Grand Dames Mia Sophia!   
 This is the gal that almost didn't make  last weekend.  Mia is doing so much
better.  Her identical twin sister Su takes the worst pictures just like me!  So I will spare you.

Just BEEcause!

I hope not to offend anyone  by the following  if I do I am sorry
                                                                         Last night, as a swarm of big "B" words spewed from my mouth,  "Bitch, Bastard";  I  paused and gave the benefit of my doubt to the perpetrator who gave me multiple computer viruses.  "Poor souls with low self esteem....only way to get noticed!  What a shame that such computer savvy talents are wasted on the unsuspected.  I know within a few sites of where these "B" or "B" dwell in blogland...and that gives me some sad satisfaction.   "B's" and "B's" please  make yourselves useful as I know you can be.  Get some help if you're angry....just get over what ever it is and be a blessing in disguise. 

....and be kind to one another, full of pity having forgiveness for one another, even as God in Christ had forgiveness for you ...(and me)

Pale Madame

"Why doth your highness look so pale and wan"?
-Titus Andronicus  -Shakespeare


This is my latest Art Doll project. 
 The shoulder/upper arms are not jointed. 
"Hmm,  you say?
  It is vital to the design for them to be stationary.
I finally have a vision for  Madame.
Nothing short of beautiful!

There's A Bear at the Door.... Party Crasher!

The bear will be another story! I can't find the picture!  Sorry
Well the drive was long, the food was made, the party is over it's time to call it a day!  That was how  last week was for Lily, Tim and I.  We made the trip to Northern Minnesota to co- host along with Terese and Lawrence,  my in- laws 50th anniversary. Tim and I were in charge of the food....I cooked for a small army.  I had the best time and enjoyed every second of the prep and presentation of the food .....great times had by all.
Lily is an excellent traveller...perfect the entire 970 miles one way all in a day!
We  pulled in our driveway Friday AM at 3.  All kids- with- paws were accounted  for.... but.....no Ming....finally at 4:30 AM....he showed us his tail and only his tail slithering in the basement he was angry  and let us know.
Mia Sophia  one of  our Siamese twins was very ill....little response and very thin....was she going to make it?  We took Mia to the vet  on Friday and she is showing signs of dehydration etc...Mia and Su are 18 years old and things are bound  to go wrong.  We are giving her antibiotic, and water I.V. treatments.  As of tonight she is getting her spunk back!
I hear there was 100 degree temps most of the time we were gone.   Not good for man or beast.
I have not posted much on my blogs and I have done NO sewing since May....I needed time to take stock in what I would like to accomplish in the next year.  I think it will be very busy.  I am tossing around an idea for next July  a huge themed open house maybe....all I know is I want it to be the best and way over the top....I will keep you posted as everything proceeds.....thinking big!!!
Do you remember  "Sam and Libby at the State Fair "(hot air balloon)?  Yesterday they found a forever home!  Thank you Ms.S.Y.   and yes I did cry when the words.."I would like to buy ..."  were uttered.   I keep promising myself ..."I will not cry....I will not cry."... but I do.
I have to get my derriere  moving and do tons of sewing.....vacation is over!     I do hope everyone one of you  are having a great big summer...working some but enjoying yourselves even more!   It's time to get busy because the great Pumpkin and Santa Claus will be here before you know it.....then cupid and the bunny.....life goes on....Keep Creating!
(Hope you like the music...Bob Grones sang this at our wedding!)
