Now to do something with the dozens of candles I have. These green candles have a great rustic, handmade look. I wrapped them with a piece of rusty fence, made a nest out of wire and added eggs, well actually they are dried black-eyed peas!
Some see a glass custard cup....I see a mini cloche!
These 'eggs' are rocks painted to resemble quail eggs.
But the best part so far is.......
Meet "Duke", my new dog! I have been 'dogless' for far too long. I regulary check Craigslist for 'treasures' and today I found the best! Duke is a Blue Merle Border Collie and he's 1 1/2 years old. His owner is moving and isn't able take him with her. He's so beautiful, sweet, and calm! He loves to run outside, fetch balls and play frisbee. Duke and Javan (my grandson) are already bonding...I think it's a great match! Javan finally has a dog, and Duke has a 'boy'!
The reason Duke's right eye looks funny (other than the fact that I am not a good photographer) is that it's half brown and half blue...pretty cool!
Now I think I'll take a nap!
