smooth sailing so far....

SO, like I say, I am at a fair in Syracuse this weekend. Actually, I am NOT, but my stuff is. They do the selling for me. As the door opened to customers and my shy self slipped out the door and away the first customer was buying one of my yellow teapots...seemed auspicious to me! More on everything later, and here is another wall piece: beagle mama! As many of you know, our wee adorable beagle Penny had been found in a snow storm, aged about 2, having just given birth to puppies. Nobody ever found the puppies, nobody ever posted flyers that they had lost their beagle who had just given birth. (I like to imagine she had wonderful puppies in some nice family's home, cared for them nicely, and one morning saw a squirrel and chased it 100 miles and got lost---which, if you know beagles, is an entirely plausible possibility) Anyway, I love the mother and child, beagle mama and pup motif....

Oh Penny! I am so happy that you have a warm loving home......give everybody a lick of love!

Sing Ho! For Beagle Mama!

I didn't know that sad little story about Penny. Oh, I also hope her babies were raised in a nice warm home. What a beautifully inspired piece.

Oh wow it is a sad story Gary. I want to believe that the little tykes were okay, and wound up in great homes, like Penny.
Thank God Penny found you and Maude. Lets hope her children faired as well....:)
