Welcome Guests

Turn up the volume on your speakers and join this Texas breakfast. It is a cool video that I must admit, reminds me of breakfast, lunch, and dinners with my pack of four sighthounds. I'm not sure why? The long slender necks? The willingness to join us for some of our food?
Click here and pull up a chair.

Banana Blossom

Banana Flower
Originally uploaded by Frums Glass Menagerie

We have been growing this banana plant for two years. We plant it in our Connecticut garden each summer, then drag it inside to winter in a pot. It has been so exciting to watch it flower.
I wonder if we'll ever see a banana.

What's in the kiln today?

A quick photo before closing the kiln for firing my paintings. Some are in final kiln processing, others are in the early stages, and face many more firings. Dachshunds, a Burmese and Sphinx cat, a Llama, Great Danes, and Corgi too. I will be another 12 hours before I can peek and see if all worked as I had planned.

Greyhound Lighthouse Necklace

This necklace will be auctioned on Ebay, beginning Friday, August 7th, with 100% proceeds going to East Coast Italian Greyhound Rescue. They will be helping to transport four 10 year old italian greyhounds, who were in a kill shelter in one of the southern states.

The four dogs had been with the same elderly man since puppy hood. When he lost his home and had to live in his car, the dogs went to a friend, who ultimately got tired of them, and sent them to the shelter.

God bless the rescuers who have helped them and the loving people who will ultimately adopt them. Thoughts and prayers to the elderly man who had to give them up.

Sure wish we could squeeze another senior hound into our home.

Here Doggy Doggy Doggy

Our little poodle key chain was featured on a cute Etsy Treasury.
Curated by Made with Love, Aunt Bucky, it is titled, Here Doggy, Doggy, Doggy. I think it is a lovely tribute to man's best friend and such an honor to be included.
