On Golden Wings

I actually have been beading.....though I'm not the best at getting pictures taken and posted. Who knows maybe I'll get better at that. Anyway this is "On Golden Wings" the wall hanging I did for the heart challenge on the yahoo group "a bead story" that Dot and I started at the end of December. Hearts are not my fav motif....but dragonflies are so this is what I came up with. Now to get started on our next challenge...Mexico....hmm maybe a couple of cold Coronas and guacamole would inspire me.....


Introducing the newest member of our family, Gus. An adorable 9 week old mini wirehaired dachsund, that my dh, Scott surprised me with on Sunday. Oh I'd seen a picture of Gus 2 weeks ago, but I knew we didn't really need another pup even though I've wanted one for sometime. I had a wirehair when I was a kid, Luke and have always wanted another to share my life. But they aren't that easy to come by and there was a litter right there in Ocean Shores! On Sunday I was out on one of my long beach walks hunting sand dollars. When I got to the jetty there was Scott waiting for me, with Gus tucked inside his first thought was OH NO! you didn't, we don't need another pup....but then he handed Gus to me...that was heart was gone. Guess we really did need another pup.
