One year old and other things

Today our little shop is one year old!!! Summer is the slow season in Bisbee but it seems a good time for girls get aways. I have had several groups in the past week. The shops class room is   small so   the  class sizes are too . Thursday I taught an all  day painting  workshop   " Textured Whimsy" the girls pieces turned  out great as they  really put their hearts in to learning . One  of the best bonuses of owning  a shop is making friends. Jill came into the shop the  other day to show off the   pair of fun pants she had made way too cute!! .Last sunday morning  she got me up a 5 AM  to go to the very old city dump site. All that  is left at the  site is   pottery shards ,glass bottles and rusted stuff. She knew I would love it !!! I came home and  made fun collections  of my finds.  Also I want to introduce  you to my  birthday present  from   Cal. Her name is Teddy .It is to bad that  Peanut and Scooty hate her , as she just shakes when they come around.   Does anyone know if they ever will be able  to coexist,  if they did  not grow up together? I am keeping  them separated   for now.

               Hoping to string these on wire and add banners between them. HMMM it is still             
 an image in my head   . Hope I can find the time to bring the image to life . 

TEDDY!!! My rescue kitty ,birthday present !!
How can people just dump these sweet creatures ? 
She was so skinny living on bugs, Now she just loves to eat.

The little brats known as Peanut and Scooty. Will they ever accept Teddy?

Fascinating Julie. And I am sure that time will eventually lead to coexistence at least with your pets.

YES.
just give it time.
keep them separate while you are gone but one day you will look down and see everything has worked out.
I have a houseful of rescues. Most blend in immediately but some just take a little time.
It's definitely worth it!

and Congrats on 1 year! Too cool!

Julie, first let me say that I have 2 kitties and 2 doggies that don't necessarily get along. However, after 2 1/2 years they've learned to tolerate and hang around together even though they don't feel the love. Just let them be and it will work itself out. It's nature after all. Cats and dogs don't play well in the school yard.
I miss you and wish I was retired to come visit during your slow time to hang out and play...
Congratulations on your one anniversary. You inspire me!

I didn't see this earlier. HAPPY SHOP-A-VERSARY!!! I love the aerial view of the studio table, creativity oozing all over the place. Teddy is a little doll-baby. The brats will be accepting eventually. xo
