Scottie Dogs on the Wall – Scottie Dog Decorating

While we were doing a baby sitting gig, or what I call “Dani Duty”, last Friday, I shot a couple of pictures of wall vignettes on this baby’s wall. But first — this baby. Our first granddarling.


OK. So I got the gratuitous grandchild picture out of the way. She’s a little over two months old here and getting ready to go swimming. She got her feet wet and said Nope. Not having any part of that and get this thing off my head! (That thing is a hat, not a doily.)

Her nursery is done in doggies and there are a couple of shelves above the changing table that I think are so sweet!

The Scottie in the frame is cut from the wall paper that is on one end of the room. Yup. There’s no picture of that. Because I always forget something. The shelf is one that my mother picked up at a yard sale or an auction nearly 40 years ago. She was going to sell it in her yard sale, but I grabbed it and used it in my house for years. My children grew up with it, but it was stained wood then. Erin painted and distressed it. We’ll have to make sure Dani keeps it and hands it down to her daughter.

Sitting next to and above that shelf is this one. (Silly me. Didn’t think to get a picture of them together.)

Another framed, wall paper dog, some crocheted baby booties I found at an estate sale and a chalk Scottie Erin picked up at a sale. The oval frame, I believe, is one I found at a yard sale.

Erin picked up this little metal holder thingy… maybe it’s a soap holder? Or something? Whatever it is, she knew the moment she saw it that it belonged in the nursery.

Thank you for allowing me a little granddarling time. Hope you enjoyed the vignettes!

Gratitude – A Thanksgiving Silhouette Cameo Project

Gratitude - A Thanksgiving Silhouette Cameo Project

Gratitude. I haven’t been doing the whole “today I’m grateful for…” thing on Facebook or the blog, but that doesn’t mean I’m not. No, no, no! I could bore a preacher to tears with my list of “thankful fors”. There are the usual, noble things like health, family, friends, pet, home…. then it gets into clean water, clothes to wear, enough food to make me fat…. But it can also include things like getting to buy a Silhouette Cameo a few months ago and my new blade coming yesterday.

I love the Silhouette! I don’t use it as much as many, if not most, owners, but I’m so happy to have it. 

This might be my first real project. I’ve done other things, enough to dull the blade, but nothing worth crowing about.

I downloaded the 99¢ design by Samantha Walker directly from the Silhouette store. Cut it from brown vinyl and stuck it to orange construction paper, of all things. I had this old, leaf, cross frame and they seemed destined to be together.

Did you notice I put it in the basket from last month?


I’ve decided I’ve got to blitz the booth and Etsy for the rest of this month and next. Should have already done this. I still have so much stored that needs to be out for sale. It’s not doing anybody any good packed away like it is. Most of my time will be doing this. I’ll still try to get around to read your blogs, but know that it’s a slow go and only when I get the chance to sit at the computer without working.
