This is what greeted me when I looked out the window this morning. I felt blessed. It was the largest rainbow I think I have ever seen in my life. (the picture only shows half of it!) I love rainbows. Who doesn't love rainbows? It's like a direct message from God to you. :)

I found this great old ice bucket today at V.V. (Value Village) Vintage hammered aluminum and insulated too - fabulous! The kicker? Roses on the lid. Yes! Up for bids on ebay...

Made another vintage style clipboard for my Etsy shop - this one has the prettiest pink roses and pale blue ribbon. I've got mine hanging in the kitchen with a vintage recipe card on it. :)

My heart is so heavy for my best friend
Janet. Today her beloved dog Izzy (who they rescued 11 years ago) was struck by a car and had to be put down due to her injuries. Hugs your way Jan...

Well, first I want to say that your picture of the rainbow is absolutely stunning! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

But, now having 'met' Janet, I feel even worse than I would if I hadn't. The decision to put my German Shepherd down was the hardest one I have ever had to make. I feel her pain. If you talk to her, please give her a big animal-loving hug for me and tell her that she's in my prayers.

Love the clipboard and ice bucket.
That truly stinks for your friend. We had to put down a greyhound we rescued because he had liver failure. The only solice I had was that he would not suffer anymore. My thoughts are with your friend.

Oh, silence. Huge to Jan as well. SO sad...

On a lighter note, My initials are V.V. so I had to giggle... You have a really good VV. We don't have such a good one... xoox (love the bucket lemonade photo!!!

Oh I'm so sorry about your friends dog! We had to do samer in March with our Cocker Spaniel and I know hard it all is. Hugs to them.

Beautiful picture of a rainbow. I haven' seen one in ages. Well we hardly ever seem to get any rain these days!
