Sweet Sweet Taffy....

The day started off with a visit to the vet for my pet rabbit, Taffy.  She has been having some problems with her back leg.  I was not prepared for what I was told, her leg was broken.  Not sure how it happened, she lives in my laundry room in her own cozy space....but the vet said it might have been because she was 9 years old, which is apparently old for a rabbit.
We got Taffy April 15, 2003 when my kids were 10 and 12.   Today when the doctor gave me my options it didn't look good.  He could either amputate the leg which would be difficult to heal at her age or put her to sleep.  I hated my choices but after the doctor said he felt she had lived a long life and the surgery would be hard on such an old rabbit we both decided letting Taffy go to heaven was the best for her.  I have had this experience with dogs in the past because of health issues and it never gets any easier. When I walked out of that office I cried like a baby.  Taffy gave us lots of great memories and when I came back home to her empty room...the tears flowed again.  I am going to miss our daily one-sided conversations Taf.....! have a special place in my heart always!
Life is so fragile!

Coffee Sack turned ART!

The burlap bag I found in Canton, TX last month has been turned into ART.  My son will be moving to his own apartment in the Fall and needs artwork.....this fits the bill!
This was a cheap and easy project, just the kind I like!  The bag was $3.99 and the canvas was $14.00 (I used a Michael's 50% off coupon).
I didn't want to cut the bag, I wanted to use the roped edge on the bottom as part of the decoration.  I slipped the canvas into the bag and started to staple.  I stapled the bottom of the bag first and went from there to the top and finally the sides.  After getting it all stapled I attached eye hooks and picture wire and it's ready to hang!

Sure wish everything could be this simple....EASY ART!

Hawk Eyes!

In between the daily chores of washing clothes and cleaning house.....I spotted something in a tree in my back yard!  I love it when I can sneak out and take a quick picture of something so beautiful.  
I think he was waiting on me to take his pic...what a pose!
