big things and little strings...

last week all became a little tricky dicky 
and so on friday i went to spend quality time with
my adopted auntie
at her little gray cottage by a babbling brook



where we spent many happy moments




whilst Miss Mina looked on 


i think it quite true to say,
one of the besty best things to have happened to me of late is adopting my auntie.
i would highly recommend it...

she is delighted to say, the mountain has become a mole hill and she is nearly at the top ~ Tif

As always, I covet your fantastic yard and home. The colors, greenery, and warmth must make you happy each day. That photo of Miss Mina is the sweetest!

It's always nice to have a friend to work with, and to have a change of scenery, and to have a cute dog face to look at. What a nice house and yard she has!

((hugs)), Teresa :-)

PS. I just posted some super fun photos of the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival.. I invite you to pop over and see.

I love the idea of adopting new relatives. remember friends are the family we make for ourselves.

I love that little dog nose picture! (I NEED a little dog in my life and seem to find them popping up everywhere). Very glad to hear that the Mountain has been reduced to a Molehill - I love it when that happens and only wish I would have the foresight to remember it, instead of always regarding it with hindsight (if that makes sense)

Carol said...

Glad to hear Auntie is taking care of you and that molehills are all you need to climb.

Hi, I am so glad Dottie's mountains have settled. Aunties are truly a gift, and how lovely to share strings of happy with each other in peacefulness, and be soothed by sharing happy strings with others who have mountains. May every mountain shrink in fear at the sight of such perfectly peachy strings of happiness.

Love Karenx

ah yes indeedy, would the world not be a better place if we could all adopt aunties and grannies :)

i think there are many to be found, one just has to keep an eye open and Mr Fate will lend a helping hand :)

Debby said...

Ah so sweet that you have an adopted Auntie. I lost my real
Aunt a couple years ago and I miss her.I like how you said that you have to keep an eye open.
I love her cottage and the banner you made. What are the packages going to be. I see a pattern in there. Glad that mountain has gotten alot smaller. Sometimes they seem to high to climb, but they never really are.

I have 3 lovely aunties, but would be more than happy to adopt another! (especially one with whom I can sit and knit and sew.) Lovely view!

such a swéét post!

elizabeth said...

Lovely prints and such a cute doggie! :)

dottie angel said...

can i tell you, just how fabby you have made my adopted auntie and Miss Mina feel today :)

they are both positively beaming at your kind words and yes, we are all three in agreement, how lucky we are to have found each other :)

Debby, i know just how you feel and yes you are quite right, sometimes it always looks like a mountain but rarely ever turns out to be one. that's whats so peachy about having adopted aunties, they are very wise and often help you see the molehill where once you you could only see a mountain.

Andrea said...

Oh dear. I think you sold out of happy little strings again. I missed it!

dottie angel said...

oh gosh Andrea! sorry they whizzed off the shelves... just put more out, hope you catch them :)
thank you for coming back and trying again...

Frances said...

Beautifully put, a bit mysterious, but this post tells us that we can find ways to lead us back to happiness when we might have lost the path for a bit.

Cheers!
