Winslow, Beans and Treasury!

Isn't he handsome? Those blue eyes got us when we first saw him as a tiny puppy at the Humane Society three years ago. Daniel took the picture above of Winslow in the back yard a couple of days ago. And here is one of him right after he came to live with us. Look at those ears!
This morning, Daniel picked our first bowl full of lima beans while I was still snoozing... After shelling them (very time consuming!), we ate them for lunch! Wonderful!!
This afternoon, I found out that Jo of peaceofpi had featured my Summer Maiden in an Etsy Treasury. My first! How exciting!! Click here before July 5 if you'd like to take a look at it - I feel honored to be listed among such wonderfully talented artists. Thank you, Jo!!

I hope you are all having wonderful days! I'll head on over to your blogs to find out...


  1. Oh Winslow is handsome indeed! He is so big. I love puppy pictures and I hope someone snatches your Summer Maiden soon.

    As for the rain dance it's too hot to do it. I am afraid I might collapse from the heat!

  2. Handsome pooch! Congrats on the treasury - looks wonderful.

  3. Your puppy turned into a handsome dog. There's nothing quite like fresh fruit and veggies - the taste is quite extraordinary.

  4. It looks as if Winslow has grown into his ears now... very cute.

    Wow!!! congrats, what a lovely treasury to be included in. I hope it makes the front page, will keep my fingers crossed for you.

  5. Summer Maiden is beautiful. I love the colors you chose and her expression. It's nice to sell your artwork, but how can you part with your beautiful work? It would have to be hard.

    Winslow is such a fitting name for him. He's handsome and charismatic. I'd fall for his blue eyes too, Silke.

  6. Your dog has the very best face! What an expression. Priceless! He looks so strong & healthy :)
    Glad you like the treasury, I had fun putting it together!
