Sun Brakes Today!!!!!

Friday!!! Sun brakes today!!!!! Sunshine for the holiday weekend!!! Life is good here in the Pacific North West!!! There is nothing prettier than a sunny weekend!

Please take the time this weekend to remember our Veterans. My girlfriend's husband will be leaving next week for his 2nd tour, I have had the honor of thanking him for his service. If you have the opportunity please thank a Vet.

Recently I was lucky enough to participate and win in Mary's giveaway! Yesterday, I received this pretty in the mail. I love getting gifts in my mailbox rather than bills! I ran out side during the thunderstorm and took a quick picture to show all of you. Stop by Mary's blog and Esty shop and take a look at her beautiful pieces.

If all else fails

I have been unhappy with my Etsy photos of late so.....if all else fails read the instructions!! I dug out the user guide to my camera and gave it a read late last night. Great way to fall asleep. This morning I grabbed a few of my personal pieces and went outside to try my new settings. Looking better, I hope.

It's going to be a beautiful weekend here in the Pacific North West. I intend to be out enjoying it!

Have a great weekend everyone.

What we've been doing all weekend

We've been puppy sitting this weekend. She's very sweet when she is a sleep. Our 8 1/2 yrs Min Pin is not too happy with a 3 1/2 month old puppy with no manners! Trixie keeps telling her she is not a play toy. I'm sure Meeka with get it soon.
