Back to the Blog...

I did have a wonderful get-away - thanks almost entirely to my
dear friend LM and her fabulous 3 yr old son.  They made me
feel so welcome in their home!  It was really lovely.  Here they
are having dinner with me right before they dropped
me off at the airport to fly home.
LM had agreed to babysit (or should I say "puppy-sit") a
sweet little 8 week old basset hound puppy for a friend.
The dog was adorable but do you know how often
puppies need to go outside?  I had forgotten how much
attention a puppy requires!  Louie is cute but he was
a great reminder of why rescuing adult dogs is such
a great idea!
On Friday, when I got back home, Mr. Biff and I
dropped off our recyling (in the rain)
and took a quick tour of the recyling store.  I am guessing
a local tea store may have closed and there were
all these cool tea tins.  I debated about buying a few
but stuck to just one - I had an idea that I might
use it for dog food as it is big enough to hold a whole
large bag full.
Here's the before:
And here's the after:
I poked a hole in the lid and attached a ceramic knob that I
recently purchased - it's a black & white frog and
I painted one panel with good old chalkboard paint.
I thought the  knob would do until I can find something
more dog-appropriate...LOL.
I did get some other goodies too - spent a total of $5 -
I will show you the rest tomorrow.
For now - one more little pic of
little Louie....

Hope you are having a great weekend!
