We’re celebrating Paisley’s fourth birthday today! Oh yes girl, I see lots of pizza crust in your very near future. She’s becoming harder to photograph as she gets older. She’s more into sinking into the sofa or bed than sitting up pretty and posing. One of our favorite silly traditions is picking out a Christmas sweater for the birthday girl. The kiddos both especially loved this traditional red and white one I found this year. Those eyebrows get me every […]
Miss Paisley turns three today! Happy Birthday to my sweet girl! She’s been getting spoiled all week with a miniature schnauzer sized pancake breakfast this past Sunday and extra table scraps all week. What a mess! And she’s looking quite smug in her cozy winter sweater. Here she is last Christmas sporting big brows… Thanks for visiting! xoxo Sally
Happy Friday ladies (and gentlemen)! Things are getting back to normal around here now that we’re all thawed out. I enjoyed a very nice week with the kiddos since they had two days off from school and the other days half off for exams. One day we even all plopped out in the family room and watched two movies in a row, complete with hot cocoa. It felt super indulgent to be watching movies all afternoon on a Monday, but […]
Hola Cottage Fix friends! Paisley the miniature schnauzer just turned two on December 13. Happy birthday sweet girl! All she got on her birthday were some extra table scraps so I wanted to do a little something more. I guess traipsing one decked out puppy around the ole cottage and setting her up for pictures is mostly for me though. She is usually such a great sport, but a little on the hard side to photograph today. Yesterday she went […]
What a long wet rainy day. Doesn’t the first Monday after the time change seem to go on forever! I always have a hard time adjusting to the time change, I’m like a toddler I guess. My internal clock just keeps on ticking — I’m hungry for lunch at ten AM and ready for lights out by 8 at night. Paisley is enjoying her new fall crochet sweater on this long soaker of a Monday. I couldn’t resist sharing it with […]
Salutations! Look who decided to help me change the sheets today—it’s Miss Paisley the miniature schnauzer. She does this every time I make the bed. Which is, of course, daily. Grin. “Hey guys, I like soft snugly bundles of fluffy stuff.” Yes, it’s true. As I’m writing this, it reminds me of one of my son’s childhood friends, a sweet little girl that lived in our apartment complex in California. They were in preschool together at the end of our […]
The peonies are beginning to bloom in the garden so I finally have something other than red azalea to cut and bring in. The summer flowers are on the way. I’m so happy — peonies are my all time favorite! These are the first three peony blooms in bright pink with a pastel pink center.
Paisley and I had a little photo shoot today, and she can really strike a pose. Could the catwalk be next? She does seem to be wondering how she managed to end up on top of the chair, and without a pillow or blanket no less!
