When I came home from work on the day before Thanksgiving, this adorable dog was hopping around our house. My 21 year old daughter had brought her home from the shelter because she couldn’t stand the thought of her being at the shelter on a holiday. I also think she had hopes that I would adopt Buttercup. As soon as I walked in the door and sat on the floor, Buttercup came over and laid her head in my lap. She had the prettiest blue eyes. We don’t know what happened to her before she got to the shelter, only that she had a severely broken leg and it had to be amputated. My daughter was not very happy that I decided not to adopt Buttercup, as a matter of fact, she told me that I didn’t have a soul :( Luckily, Buttercup was adopted by week’s end and she is living happily ever after!
I had a can of chalkboard paint lying around and I decided to make a little chalkboard paint vase. I picked up this little gem from the thrift store for $1.99. It’s pale green in color. I like the dark black chalkboard paint against the light color of the vase. Who is Minnie? Minnie is my cute little grand-pup (on the right side of the doggie pic below). Who is Karl? He is the big golden retriever who lives behind us. They bark at each other all the time – it’s so darn cute! I couldn’t get a good picture of Minnie and Karl together, so Lola had to do. Lola is the puppy my daughter fostered for 3 weeks – isn’t she super adorable? Seriously, super adorable! Lola was about 6 weeks old in this picture and Minnie is 3. Minnie thought she was getting a sister....but Lola adopted out quickly. Imagine that! Linking up with: Someday Crafts
