So today to cheer myself up, I finally got around to painting the little things I created for the craft show. These are all my original patterns and drawings. Bill surprised me by cutting out the likeness of "Pooky's Grandma" in her pumpkin costume for me! I was delighted as he brought her from my paper to a little trinket, bringing her to 3-dimensional life. He is so sweet! I am so thankful for all my blogging buddies who keep my spirits high and keep me from being lonely in my role as caretaker. Love you all! Special thanks to my niece, Patricia @ http://couquettishfleur.blogspot.com/ If you like Victorian and all things beautiful, please visit her site. She has gorgeous Halloween banners, Victorian Sleeves and much, much more!

BUSY HANDS KEEP THE BLUES AWAY!
I LOVE BLUE print and always seem to pick that color for writing. It is soothing. Anyhow, I have been trying to lighten up since losing my furry little friend. I always continue to help whenever I can when one of God's creatures doesn't make it. This story usually makes people Laugh: When my kids were little way back in the 60's, I took a polywog from the ditch near our home and put it in a jar for the little ones to enjoy. I told them how the polywog would lose his tail and then he could come out onto land. So we are all waiting for the little guy to make his metamorphosis and I forgot to put a rock or something above the water in the jar so he could climb onto it when he lost his tail. Yes, he drowned!! I was so distraught over this tiny creature no bigger than my fingernail that I tried to give him CPR by pushing on his little chest. But of course, he had been long gone. My hubby loves to tell people that I gave him mouth to mouth but this is not true. It makes everyone laugh because they cannot believe I would be upset over a polywog let alone try to revive it. But hey, little miracles happen!
