Enjoy my blog with me as I share my blessings of family cooking, sewing, crafts, vintage collections, pets and chicken keeping.

How was everyone's weekend? We had a rather rainy and damp weekend here. Saturday morning, I had Bear's monthly appointment with his wonderful dog groomer. I had brushed out all his

He is so funny, now he didn't want anything to mess up his pretty hair!!
