Feel free to pin photo's from this blog...I'm not one of those blogger's that will flip out and go on a rant about you "stealing" my photo's because you liked it enough to share it, lol. I am not a "professional decorator, cook, gardener" or "professional" anything else....I BLOG FOR FUN. Nope....not one of the perfect blogger's here. My house is not perfect, and you will never be led to believe it is. I simply cannot offer you "how-to's", nor will I leave comment's on your blog offering decorating advice...sorry. If you are one of the "professional blogger's" as I refer to so many of them these days, I simply am not interested in your invite to your linky parties...with YOUR strict instructions to follow YOUR rules, lol, in order to increase YOUR traffic. If your not here for enjoyment, then this simply isn't the blog for you.

Our Sweet Annie, and the accident

I told you in my last post that I would tell you about the mama and babies that we recently rescued, but it is sort of a sad story, and I don't feel like re-living it.  Annie needs a little extra attention right now soooo, this post is about her. Warning....picture overload!
If you remember, Annie was a rescue. My nephew says that he found her on the side of the road, and then just happened to stop by our house with her, but I have never really felt that he was telling the truth. Nonetheless, we kept her and fell completely in love with her.

She would follow me to the cabin when I would work on furniture, and make every step that I made until she just couldn't go anymore, then she would get in this old drawer and take a little power nap. Look how cute!

Annie just loves her humans, and would follow hubby to his shop, garden, or anywhere else that he went.

This is Annie all grown up now, and of coarse ya'll know Sophie Parsons. Annie even loves Soph, and Sophie is not always nice to poor Annie. Annie is always so tolerant and forgiving of Sophie, but this is just part of Annie's personality. Annie has unconditional love for everyone that she meets.

This is Annie and her marshmallow. She loves a roasted marshmallow. I will build a fire sometimes and roast her marshmallows, and she inhales them, but she likes them not roasted also. She had this one buried in the dirt, as you can see. The only time Annie has ever stood up to Sophie was when Sophie tried to take her marshmallow.

This is Annie and the pups that were rescued. When I first brought the pups home, I wouldn't let Annie in the backyard with them and the new mom. Annie was beside herself, shaking, howling, and cutting up side ways to get to the pups.....but I had no idea what she would do if she got to them.  I should have known,  because Annie is one of  the sweetest dogs that I have ever owned.  Anyhoo, I think this was the second day that she was with the pups, and she acts more like their mom than the mama dog does.

Annie hasn't spent a night away from the babies since she was allowed to interact with them, until Monday night, and the accident. They love her, and she loves them. She loves the mama dog as well, and they are like a long lost family. It is almost like this mama dog and her pups have made Annie's life complete. It is so sweet how Annie has welcomed them into her world.

Monday night, Annie and the mama dog (Dolly) were running and playing, and Annie knows only one speed, which is HYPER. She ran into this blade with these sharp points, and when she did, they went under her skin and tore her right side pretty much off. I have pictures, but won't share due to it is not pretty. We ended up at our Vet's office that night, and she had to keep Annie due to the extent of her injury.

This is Annie and the pups when she arrived home the next day. These babies were sooo happy to see their Annie, and so was I!

She has to wear the cone because of the sutures and the drainage tubes, but it really hasn't slowed her down. She was in the pool the day she came home, but we had to help her out because she was still too sedated and tired to swim.  She is on antibiotics and anti-inflammatories for now, but you can't keep a good dog down. We are so glad that our Annie is ok, and I can't imagine our farm without her!!


2013 Fall Mantle at 1800 Farmhouse Rd

Mrs. P almost forgot to show ya'll her fall mantle this year. Here, take a look......

 I used burlap and hounds tooth ribbon this year, along with leftover's from previous years. I didn't buy anything new.

 I am thinking that I will go back to my usual woodsy/twiggy theme next year. This has not been my favorite fall mantle, but I didn't dislike it enough to take it all down and re-do it.

 Don't you just love fall colors?? I think I would like it better if it had a bit more orange mixed in.

  Dried hydrangea's in an old basket, and a handmade bowl from one of hubby's patients has made their way to the primitive coffee table in the great room for the fall season.

 Oh, and meet Annie. This is the latest addition to the farm. She is such a cutie. My nephew found her on the side of the road, and just happened to drop by my house with her. Sophie hates her, but I hope that will change.
This is after a bath, and a full belly. How could anyone be so cruel?? Oh well, she has her "forever" home now, and will never be hungry or scared again as long as she is here with us :)
