~ New Dogs Join the Family ~

Hi everyone, I know you are all bustling around trying to put finishing touches on things for Thursday. I have the pies to bake, and few other things and our preparations are ready.
I thought I would share a shot of the small buffet in the dining room, with it's lone pumpkin and candy corn before it's all put away and the Christmas finery comes out.
One of my last visits to Nell Hill's I purchased these darling bookends. If you've been following for a while you know I'm crazy about dog items, the obsession began a few years back and just keeps growing. :-))

How could you "not" love a face like this? The base is a deep cobalt blue and flows nicely in any of my rooms. The picture does not do it justice.
I haven't shown my "collection" of clocks, there are quite a few with a story behind each one. This little cutie was a Christmas gift from a family member many years ago. The darling dish was a gift from my girlfriend. Does she know my tastes or what?


All of you know my obsession with lamps. I've had this beauty for almost 10 years now. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. I was fortunate the price could be negotiated, so it came home with me. lol The only change was the shade, I wasn't crazy about the shape and color of the original.

Thank you for taking the time away from your busy schedules to pop in and say hello.
