Cacti Anyone?

These new puppies will chew on anything. I have a small cactus garden and the spiny plants did not deter these chow hounds. In this picture they are munching on the top of a pineapple that they found in the yard. I guess pineapples are better than chewing on my shoes.

Snoopy is still adjusting to having two sisters. He has been on a hunger strike. Since we have to keep on eye on everyone, the new puppies are a little more work than I expected. But they are happy and sleeping through the night. Mothers of the world...."God love you!"

New Puppies

The girls arrived yesterday afternoon. And they are sooo cute. Nellie is on the left and Mattie on the right. But Snoopy wants nothing to do with them. He has been cowering in his dog house, avoiding their playful advances. I am sure that in time they will all be friends. Fortunately for the puppies they have a BIG yard in which to play.

Perhaps you heard the news about the earthquake in Costa Rica. Fortunately just a minor rumble here where we live,but about 4 hours north of here,lots of damage and lives lost. My brother in law suffered structural damage to hos business/residence. So they are all still a little shaky.

Here are two pictures of Sofia. Isn't sge the cutest? When she got her dollhouse she wanted to know "Where is the bathroom, and carport?" Out of the mouth of babes.

Speaking of babes,Snoopy is going to have two twin "sisters" by the end of the week. The pups are 2 months old. So stay tuned for pictures of the new family members.

Handbags For Sale!

As many of you know I have been making handbags/totebags to keep me busy (a break from my quilting projects.) Serg and I thought that we would try to sell them at the local Farmer's Market.

Unfortunately Costa Rica does not have Craft Shows like in the USA. This is me setting up shop. Serg built me this great rack that takes up very little space and I can set up and breakdown easily.

I have only sold a few bags through this venue, but Serg LOVES spending the day talking to people. That is worth the price of admission.

We pack a lunch and spend the day. I am just trying to earn enough to support my fabric buying addiction!! WILL WORK FOR FABRIC.
