Now that all of the renovations are done upstairs on the farmhouse I can get back to some of my other loves...like blogging & the dog rescue (although I do work with the rescue all the time).
I have in the past sent out pleas for funds for RESCUE DOGS MATCH the small but mighty dog rescue I volunteer and do fundraising for. I thought you might like to see our recent HAPPY TAILS.
Meet Diego, Gatsby, Monty and Leo. These are just 4 out of around 30 of the dogs at Rescue Dogs Match but these lucky pups found loving families this week. We are so happy and as you can see so are they.
Our next fundraising project is to take pictures of our HAPPY TAILS as they take the drive to their Forever Homes and turn them into Greeting Cards which I will design and sell on Etsy. What do you think?
Thanks to all of you lovely Bloggers who have supported RESCUE DOGS MATCH in the past.... the pups adore you!

I am very happy with these rooms and amazingly it looks bigger than before.
The last thing that got changed during the bedroom redo was our son's old room. We had of course changed it long ago enclosing the bed Scandinavian style. I added the Faerie to the door for our little granddaughter if she ever sleeps over (she says mommie would miss her). The cupboard my husband made for the room was on the other wall and it always looked crowded. I moved it over, it now holds my handbag collection ( it is full!) . The pictures were a large poster our son made in grade 2 and won the Humane Society Award at our local Fair. I love it and held onto it for years then decided to cut it into 4 and frame them. The high chair was our son's and the hat he wore as the Mad Hatter at his wedding party here on the farm.
I just love the changes now every room seem fresh and bright a new start for the changing Season.

I hope you like my bedroom, I just love it. It has taken up most of the summer but the upstairs is pretty much finished, a little tidying in the hall and it is done. Tomorrow I will show you how the front room looks. We did not plan on changing it but with the cupboards not fitting upstairs everything shifted but I love it....change is good, although a little exhausting!

The gardens are looking quite nice this summer, although when the huge trees fell in the back my herb garden was ruined for this season. We are rebuilding the raised beds in the Fall so I will have a brand new Herb Garden next Spring.
I love to repurpose things and the old work table was perfect to put on the terrace porch, I made the Garden sign 15 years ago and it still looks great.
