Some of my altered canvases..

Hi dear friends,

Rather than rambling for a change I wanted to share some of the canvases I'm currently working on as well as a couple of completed ones.

These two are finished; one was a gift for my Mom and has a picture of her as a small child
with her Mom. The other is of 3 of my babies.

The following are two collage canvases that are still "in the works".

Thanks for letting me share a little of my craft with you tonight!

Best wishes and high hopes to you all,
Jennie and the Pretty Pekes

I'm not an old woman!!!!!!!

Sweet friends,
Ya'll are not going to believe this. Ready? Are you sitting down?

Me, Jennie of The Pretty Pekingese, who has often been referred to as an older woman was asked for ID today when purchasing a bottle of wine. In case you didn't catch that...I WAS CARDED!!!!

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! I was so excited I spun, looked at the woman behind me who appreciated my joy when I whispered - I'm being carded! Of course, the kid at the register was probably contemplating whether I had begun drinking already but I didn't care. I was carded and that was so dang exciting that I called my best friend to share my excitement.

I GOT CARDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best wishes and high hopes to you all - may you each be carded tomorrow!

Treasures Now and Then

Steve and Latresa

Dear friends,
Several years ago I had a booth at a local antique mall. I had the honor of getting to know Steve and Latresa. Well, they've recently opened their own store in Arlington, TX and it's so lovely. Both are incredibly knowledgeable of antiques and have beautiful furniture, glassware, clocks and more at their store. Please visit their website (click on Steve and Latresa's name above) and their store - you won't be disappointed!!!

Please vist their site, more pictures and details of their inventory. One other note, if you need replacement keys for any of your antique furniture pieces Steve can make them onsite for you!!!

Best wishes and high hopes,
Jennie and the Pretty Pekes
