Please everyone say a prayer for Teddy. She did not come in last night. I fear for the worse. I let her run outside  last night and sat with her for  a while then I went to bed and left the door open  with out taking her in with me !! UGHHHHHH How could I  be so  lame ! I am sick !!! I know a  coyote got her !! how could I be such a bad care giver???

The cooler

Look what I found on the side of the road!!!  An old cooler, the inside  is galvanized tin. I then turned it into my  desert version of  a fairy garden . The  tin bowl  I found on my last sunday morning  trip to the dump. I am having so much fun with these tin gardens . I made a whole collection  for the store using   old tin cans!!

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.

 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?
