Forgot to tell you about the art gallery fundraiser.....

We had a super time again at the art gallery fundraiser.  This time we were chosen around 5th or 6th and so I got my top pick this beautiful watercolour of a Canadian Waxwing by the artist Catherine Delhaise.  I also had the privilege of meeting her and she was a lovely lady who lives north of Oshawa.  The details on this watercolour are just beautiful and as I said to her, it will be going to a home where it belongs and will be loved.
Dd was picked around half way through the night so her first choices were taken, but she had this one on the list of ones she wanted.  Now she is not going to be happy me saying this, but her choice is no better in real life than it is in the picture!!!  However each to their own and some people may hate my choice and love hers.  I will say it will fit nicely in her condo as it is very modern.  It is made out of concrete.


For those of you in Southern Ontario looking for a puppy, check out these cute ones they are looking for a loving home........

The sun is to be out in full force today.....we certainly "must" enjoy any little warmth, as there hasn't been too much of it the past month. Love the "link" to the "Magnificent Seven". Thanks Gill !!!

Thanks Gill, for your "puppy sales" pitch, as it is very much appreciated. Wonder how the new little girl I sent home with her new owner's this morning is doing? They said they will be keeping me in the "loop", so I will keep everyone else in it too! Love the "Waxwing" watercolour....
