Pup Steps ... Wag More ~ Bark Less please!

Bella and Lexi's pet stairs are just about done!


the beautiful handcrafted 'Bohemian Coiled Multicolored mats' (my answer to traction pads for pups) were made by Shelley at Yellow Violet  in East Hartland, CT!  


Rog built the steps and a pup toy box that I need to paint too!

it's ALL about the pups (kinda)!

oh and check out what's happening at Paint Party Friday this week ... I know I am a day late ... but better late than never!

Sandy Hook Angels and Paint Party Friday

Remembering Charlotte, Daniel, Rachel, Olivia, Josephine, Dylan, Madelein, Catherine, Chase, Jesse, Ana, James, Grace, Anne Marie, Emilie, Jack, Noah, Caroline, Jessica, Avielle, Lauren, Mary, Victoria, Benjamin and Allison today and every day …

While here on earth they were stars in the eyes of their parents, siblings, spouses, significant others, all other family members and friends and now and forever, they will live in our hearts and shine from the heavens.

I’ve tried to represent these 26 precious beings with an assemblage of wood and placed them watchfully on a stairway to Heaven. Six female grownups and twenty little children (twelve girls and eight boys) all taken from this earth far too soon.   

Hand and machine crafted shapes along with vintage wood handed down from generation to generation, along with old VT barn wood and wooden Scrabble tiles. 

And the paint … angel white with a touch of pink or blue.  A Sandy Hook Elementary School green heart shaped memorial ribbon adorn each angel.  The yellow stars are painted with leftover paint from a children’s summer piñata I had once made.

 ... and it's Friday already again!
Where does the time go?

Toad Stool

 So this vintage little stool has been around forever, actually think it came from my Mémère's house.  It used to be red once and white once and I can't seem to ever discard something made from wood, much less something that belonged to my Mémère, so I decided to give it a new look.

 Can't take all the credit for Mr. Toad ... it was Rog's idea ... a stool ... a toad ... toad stool mushrooms ... a 4 leaf clover ... a ladybug ... who could ask for anything more in a vintage little stool?  Happy PPF ... go there and just see what's happening!

And to all ... please consider participating in the Paint Party Friday Auction Blog Hop to Benefit Sandy Hook Elementary School!  Donate a creation or purchase one or both.  I will!

... have a great weekend!
