Benji comes OVER and 5 years in the purple house PLUS other goodies....


We moved into the PURPLE HOUSE 5 years ago today, HUZZAH! Fast five years. It was 70 degrees that day, hot and windy (several inches snow expected today, actually). We wrote the biggest check of our life that day and moved in with our 5 dogs and cats (of that group only Buster remains, the rest are in the pet cemetery out back) and golly, I love it here. We are very fortunate. :)

SO, Benji comes over yesterday to see Penny. Benji is not a dogs guy, but he wuvs Penny, as you would. As Benji says:
"Penny is such a small dog, but she has such a BIG personality". Benji has also known her since the first days we got Penny, 4 years ago and he is like
"She was such a scrawny little stray back then, look at her now, a beautiful and healthy dog".






I have been fiddling with a lot of ideas, and goldarnit, they are LOOKING GOOD aren't they?

Ahem.

I am impressed with the condition of the purple paint on the outside of your house. Have you had to paint the outside in the five years you have been there? It looks like you take good care of your home.

We try to take good care. It had been painted just before we bought it :)

Beagles are a lot of personality in little packages.

I was going to ask the same thing as Technobabe. Your house is so wonderfully vibrant...just like you....and Penny...and Benji!

I love the look for the spouts you made but I have a feeling I would need to practice pouring without making a huge mess.

How could anyone NOT love Penny?

I think your house looks just like you: fun, creative, vibrant.

I have a purple kitchen. Try to keep vibrant stuff coming out of there, too!

It appears Penny loves Benji right back. Awww.
I feel a kinship with Penny though I've never met her.
I like her look. Like she's got black eyeliner on. She's a dog after my own heart.

Lovely jugs- do they pour well too?

Congrats on five years! Love your house too, reflects the fun inside too! You and Maude are the greatest!
Love your new pottery too!
I am with Kasey, any dog with eyeliner on is a friend of mine...aw but Buster and Spike are friends too! I love them all...
