Hi all,
I have a new giveaway, this time it is a prim dress with hanger, a blank kraft journal with vintage picture and assorted of tarts. So please leave me a comment and I will pick a winner on Friday Night. You must be a member of my blog to enter.
Well, my daughter took her puppy swimming in our pool yesterday. Her and a friend took him to the beach on Saturday and he seemed to love the water. Finally she has learned how to come in and out of the cat door and go potty. The little surprises she has left for me seemed to be getting less and less. She is still a handful. As you can see, my dad's little poodle is sitting there watching.

We hopefully have some good news about my dad, he had a light put down into his heart to check for clots, (which they didn't find anymore) then had his heart shocked to make it work better. So far so good. He said he is feeling better, I guess time will tell. He may get out as soon as Wednesday. So keep him in your prayers please, maybe he will be able to come home and feel better. We went and saw him in the hospital for Father's day, he seemed to be fairly good spirits and was eating his lunch, which he seemed to enjoy. My husband is sitting in the background. We still have to wear those gowns into his room when we visit, because of the merca infection he has. They said it seemed to be cleared up, so I guess it is just a precaution.

Well, getting ready for my visit with Carmen tomorrow. Have to get the house cleaned up and get all my goodies out to show her. We only have a few hours tomorrow to visit. she is dropping her hubby off the hospital in Lake City and coming on to Starke, then will go back and get him when he is ready. We will be going the local goodwill store looking for treasures and showing each other our newest creations. She is going to bring her new witches and show me. So hope to have pictures tomorrow to post of our visit together tomorrow.

Thanks for all your continuing prayers and support through my dad's sickness. I will have a new update after Carmens visit and keep watching for my Christmas in July.


  1. I'm so glad your dad is feeling better. Hopefully he'll be able to come home soon. I have been worried about mine for the past two weeks. He's been having a lot of testing lately. They think he has prostate cancer. I just keep praying.

  16. I'm so glad I found your blog thru Dawn @ Backdoor Primitives. I can't wait to have more time to go back thru your older posts. I am so glad to hear your father is doing better. Just before my father passed, he suffered a severe battle of MRSA caused from his IV being left in too long without being cleaned. That is so horrible for everyone. I will pray that God will strengthen his heart more and more each day. I hope he has a full recovery and is released Wednesday for good.
    Our schnoodle Bella loves our pool. We have to keep a good eye on her that she doesn't just decide to go in the water without us. When we go to the ocean, she can't get enough. She is definitely a water dog.
    Have a wonderful day and looking forward to getting to know you better.

  17. It is always such good news to hear that the power of prayer is working in someone's life. So happy to hear of your dad's improvements.

  20. I'm sure glad that your dad is doing better. I remember you lost your mother not to long ago. I lost mine in March. I sure know its hard when they start getting illness late in life. I hope he can come home soon. I will be remembering him in my prayers. I know prayer works. He comforts and just gives us the courage to take that next step that has to be taken. Would you please enter me in your giveaway. I would appreciate it. Please take care of yourself.
