Help - Young Skater with Safety Cushion

This is the best photo I've seen in about a million years. "Dutch boy with a pillow strapped on his backside in order to soften the falling on ice while skating." The Netherlands, 1933 via Flickr

Sleeping Peacefully in The Jungle

Can't you feel yourself relaxing just by looking at this leopard sleeping so peacefully up high on a tree limb in the jungle?

Such a nice portrait of a goat. He looks very dignified, doesn't he?

Lone Tree In The Snow

"This photo from Sycamore Gap is probably the most photographed tree in the UK . . . featured in the movie Robin Hood Prince of Thieves."

Absolutely breathtaking, isn't it?

I know many of you are buried in the snow right now. We are having heavy rain at the cottage today. It was beautiful yesterday; I washed a big load of Webster's blankets and hung them outside on the line. The house smelled like sunshine when I brought them inside late in the day. Webster was thrilled to have his favorite one on his dog bed. He loves clean things.

Stay warm and enjoy your Sunday.

Big Sheep, Little Lamb

Have you ever seen so much wool on one sheep? Did they shave her face just so she could see her beautiful lamb? So sweet.

Remembering The Less Fortunate


The Kindly Robin
This vintage Christmas card is a reminder to remember the less fortunate. I am sending out my annual donation to a local food pantry today so others who are having financial difficulties can put something special on their holiday table.

Dog Waiting for Santa [Video]

I posted this video last year and it continues to be one of my favorites. You won't believe how smart this little Jack Russell Terrier is and you'll love watching him leave treats for Santa. At the end of this charming video there is an opportunity to download the photo as wallpaper.

Webster would not have this much self control. He would have gobbled down that plate of cookies in a flash and that would have been his Christmas present.

The Beginning of A Long Love Affair

I just ran across this amazing composite photo that I've been saving on my computer for ages. I don't know where I found it . . . I just know I love it. This is definitely a two-way affair, isn't it? Can't you just feel the love?

Hanging My Wreath Today




I need to go out to the barn/garage today and find my pine cone wreath and my tree. As in past years, I've waited until it's freezing and my hands don't work. These three country images reminded me I'd better hurry up.

Great Kitchen in An Alabama Lake House

I love the simple painted cabinets against the unpainted knotty wooden walls and floors. Designed by Tracery Interiors. Click here to see other rooms in this lakeside cottage on Silverock Cove at Smith Lake. Very nice indeed.
