Love in the air

Oh my long time since I've had a chance to post.Life just gets in the way sometimes. We've had some not so pleasant happenings and it has kept me distracted with those things. Day by day and most days are filled with little joys. Thought I'd stop in to say Hi! and share som of my February decor...

The old grainery box gets done up each season now. Sad I let hubby sell the large square wood bowl that came with it now, but when you deal in old junk sometimes just gotta let some go...

Lots of goodness from blog friends and family....


Issaboo's Christmas Pics since I didn't get to show off her adorableness. She is 10 months now. Vet says she's a little chubby.Hubby just says she's a little pudding belly. She'll take it off this spring when she goes to Flea Market on the weekends.She loves to visit and dig in boxes.
Yep cute..cute..cute... I know I'm partial...smile...
And the reality of why Mung is hardly ever photographed....Baby sis likes all the attention....
Mung has recently been sick some kind of auto immune thing were his blood cells are fighting each other.He started bleeding out of the nose from it. They are not sure what the cause is(poseably a reaction to lyme which they are not sure because when tested it was minimal to none positive). He is on steroids and a bunch of meds. He seems ok now but they says some dogs once weened will relasp  if that happens they say he will die. I'm not ready and having a hard time accepting it especially since it's been less than a year since my other dog passed of cancer. If you are a dog person you understand they are like your family.So if you could just send up a little prayer for him that he does not relasp. ...Ok on to better things I'm planning our spring swap and will have it posted soon..... We've had lots of snow our way including a blizzard..I love each season and snow is perfect nesting weather but the below freezing temps are getting old.I like to get out and walk with the dogs but it's been way to cold to be out.I have been sorting through my spare room and loft trying to declutter my etsy stuff I have way to much stuff that I'll never have time to list so sending a bunch to market as soon as spring hits. I'll do a separate day since my regular flea market stuff is Primitives. My etsy is alot of different stuff really not even sure what all it is since alot has been packed away for a few years. Just ready to let it go and have minimum stuff. Well hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day. I don't like the crowds so hubby is making me a steak and shrimp dinner at home tonite. I have lots to share just got to get back to blogging more regular. Seems every spare minute is taken then the few I get I just want to do my own things.Warm Blessings!~Amy
