Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day friends!

I saw a sign at a local Church that I wanted to share with you: "Mother = Physical Life, God = Eternal Life". I thought that was a lovely comparison. May everyone who is a Mother to either a human baby or a fur baby have a wonderful day and know that what you do is appreciated so very much.

Best wishes and high hopes to you all,
Jennie and my babies

Pink Saturday Notions

Happy Pink Saturday!

I love sewing notions, playing with buttons, twirling emroidery threads together to watch how the colors blend, lace trim, ribbons and best of all...tassles and fringe! Here are some lovely examples in our favorite Saturday color...PINK!

Best wishes and high hopes to you all,

I am not an older woman!

For the love of Pekingese what is going on?
Last Saturday one of the "girls" at the jewelry store I work at said that I probably liked babies because I "keep hitting snooze on my baby clock".

Today, one of the "young whipper snappers" in my department asked me if computers were around when I first started in the banking industry. I almost think he was serious.

That balding waiter on Easter Sunday started it. Now everyone is calling me old!

Is it the weird gray streak that I have in my hair? Is it the freaking crow's feet? Is it the fact that I don't understand what-the-Pekingese is being said in most of the music out right now? Is it the fact that I keep singing "Green Acres" and have the theme to the "Love Boat" on my play list? Is it those crazy brown melasma spots on my face because my freaking hormones are a little nuts right now? (Which by the way the "girl" at the jewelery store even pointed out and asked if I was going to get them "lasered.")

Oh well, Charlie Brown said it best...

Best wishes and high hopes to you,
Jennie and the old pooches

Bonjour my friends,

I received the most wonderful package today! From Jenn at Noodle & Lou, a precious French mademoiselle.

I've wanted a Lullette for months now and I finally beat the crowds and was able to get one from her Etsy shop! YIPPPPPPEEEE!!!
I've "stolen" Jenn's picture from her site because as usual, I can't take decent pictures. But the best surprise was the sweet little gift tucked in her card. She included one of her fabric door hangers! Sweet Jenn, you are just too kind; I love it! Thank you!!!
Best wishes and high hopes to you all!
Jennifer and the mademoiselle pooches

My newest creations

Hello and Happy Monday,
I've been busy trying my hand at something new. Inspired by all of the little stages I've seen I made the following:

Someday I must learn how to take proper photos. At least my thumb isn't in them! ha ha ha

I also made a new postcard, "Bonjour", inspired by Jenn at Noodle and Lou.

I hope you've all had a wonderful day.

Best wishes and high hopes to you all,

Pink Saturday...Lady Di in Pink

I recall waking very early so that Mom and I could watch the marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. I suppose many women my age share a similar memory; gazing at the TV with tears of joy, in awe of the formality and the fact that we were watching a living fairy tale. I remember every shy glance Lady Diana gave her Prince. I fell in love that day with love. For me, Princess Diana will always be someone I admire, someone that showed me even though fairy tales don't have the predictable endings, life can be a wonderful tale.

Sadly, I recall to well the day she passed, the news coverage and how again, I was gazing at the TV but this time with tears of grief. May we all handle challenges as gracefully as she tried to and may we all try to give as much of ourselves to others as she did.

Love always to Princess Diana.

Best wishes and high hopes to each of you dear friends,
Jennie and the Pekes

A beautiful journal page...

Hello friends,
Every evening when I get home one of the first things I want to do is relax and visit everyone's blogs. It's such a treat to see your newest creations and read about your "world".

This evening I was so awed by Patty Syzmkowicz's post that I wanted to share it with you. While I don't really know Patty I've been visiting her blog since I started blogging earlier this year. Her art is inspiring and always so lovely. However I've gone back several times tonight to look at today's posting. She has created what I think may be 2 of the pretties journal pages I've seen. Since I don't have her blessing, I'm not going to post a photo of it but here's the link - please visit her page and enjoy her creations. You're going to love these pages!

Best wishes and high hopes to all of you,
