Today is just one of those days.  I won’t bore you with the simple annoyances that have me a bit off kilter.  Instead, I choose to share with you my lucky find of the week.  Courtesy of Aunt Pam and her clever eye.

This mirror almost made it into Goodwill.  It’s a little dirty, but if you look close, you’ll see Miss Vayda stretching in the reflection.  Such a ham!

We have a real problem on our hands with Miss Vayda.  It all started a few months ago, when she decided that she would no longer eat or drink from her stainless steel bowls.  I guess after five years of the same dishes, she wanted a change of pace.

Since she never seems to have a problem cleaning our dinner plates, we presented her with a much more civilized ceramic plate and bowl.  The newness wore off, and  in about 2 days, she was starving herself again.

Nick’s brilliant idea was to buy the cheapest plastic bowls he could find…in a terrible, shiny-blue-ick color no less (I later found out he had the option to buy red) but by then the dog was eating from them…so how could I take them away?

These ugly bowls satisfied her  for about a month. Until last week when she decided that her outdoor water bowl had the tastiest water.  She begged and begged for us to let her outside.  We begged and begged for her to drink indoors.  The dog won.

Now I have one more piece of Bears memorabilia INSIDE my house.  She is without question, a Daddy’s girl.

and too darn cute!  I might just have to kidnap these pups one day.  (well, I might pass on Yoji since he’s on a homemade vegan diet…I can’t even cook that good for myself)

Spent the greater part of last week in Florida, where upon, my brother finally returned a sketchbook that I had left in his truck several years ago.  It’s like catching up with a long-lost friend.  Here’s what I was drawing on 5-16-06.

A sleeping Vayda-monkey, that is.

…a sneak peek at my drafting table…I soooo love painting furry babies!

He may be the last to post, but he was the first of four French Bulldog commissions to come my way this year.  Just look at those ears!  I absolutely adore him!
