Puppy Love...Cassie's "The Little Things" Thursday

I Love My Puppy.
Well, she will always be a puppy to me.
She doesn't always appreciate 
having her picture taken.
But, she does tolerate it...
for my sake.
She's a good girl,
and she smiles at me.
:)
We call her
Junie the Wonder Dog.

Join Cassie's
Green, green grass in the summertime...

That amazing fresh cut smell when 
the lawn has just been mowed...
(I can't wait!!!)

Hearing kids laughing on a warm summer night...
(Can you tell that I am looking forward to summer?)

Cousins who seem like Sisters...

Spending time with those Sister-Cousins...

Just Because...Friday Pretties

Happy Friday Pretties!
A gift for no reason...
My friend, Renee, from
gave a few of her buddies,
(I happen to be one of them- Yey)
these adorable 
Blossom Pins.
The very talented Miss Renee
made them for us.
How Cute!
And, because of our mutual love
for Cath Kidston
She made mine with some 
of her coveted CK fabric.
Do you remember my 
Renee joined me in a very 
dramatic gasp when I showed
her my find!
Love it  :)
I think that even the grass she put 
in the package is
too, too Cute!
Presentation is everything...

Please take a few minutes to visit
the wonderful blogs that
 linked up for
FRIDAY PRETTIES

Also-
 I am going out of town this weekend.
 I don't know if I will have
internet access. 
So, if you don't hear from me 
right away you will know why.

"It's the Little Things" Thursday

Cassie's
Thursday
This bunny was made by my Aunt Joyce 
20 plus years ago.
She had been very sick for a long time,
and she made many of these precious bunnies 
to pass the days away.
What a Treasure!

It's The Little Things...
Rain instead of more snow.

My dog, Junie's, soft, soft silky ears.

The sound of the back door opening,
and hearing "Hi Mom".

My hubby and I going on errands together,
just because we can.

Barnes & Noble

My wonderful friend from middle school
and her family, that I feel adopted into.

Plenty of food and a warm house.

Hometowns
