Daily Heart On

If you like these, whatever you do, do NOT go here
It's as if they read my mind..... scary!

I want to live here.

I found this here I love her blog, so darn creative and she had a post about places she'd like to live and that's where I stumbled upon this rad Chicken Coup house. I'd LOVE to live in this place also.. we might have to build an addition bcuz I'm moving in also! ;o)
Love the colors
the bunny painting is rad and the decor.. ugh.. it's killing me. I want to get rid of 85% of my stuff now and start over!

my dogs would love laying on that fur rug.

Show me the way..

I love the heart one! I'd like to make some compass necklaces. I think they are great, esp for people who get lost all the time. All of these are currently on Ebay.

I'll make this for tomorrow

The pics and recipe for the cake were taken from here

Slowly add the buttermilk. While still beating, add the vanilla and the food coloring. Pour into three 8-inch layer pans and bake for about 25 minutes. Press lightly;if the layers are spongy, then the cake is done. Frost the cooled layers, assemble and frost the top and sides. Serves 12 to 14.

Johnny Horton The Battle Of New Orleans 1959

I used to drive around downtown Phoenix listening to Johnny Horton while taking photos of random things. I love Johnny Horton. I also need to go take more pics with my old cameras, we feel as if we are on a constant vacation at the ranch..!

This is a good one

and this, originally by Lead Belly. This version's by Lonnie Donegan, Johnny Cash's version is really good also

The Elephant King

Argentine Dogo

If I had a Dogo i'd leave it's poor ears alone! I didn't crop my boxers ears. These dogs are BIG and require a lot of attention. They love to prove they are good work dogs. They are outlawed in some countries tho. Let's hope they don't make a Disney movie about Dogo's! Then everybody would go out and buy one and there'd be a lot of probs.

Daily Heart On

I love Amy Hemmens of Naik Fur's hats! She's a GENIUS. If I could i'd buy one of each, but I can't afford to. I have a black one now but it's a tad too big on my head so i'm trying to purchase a different one. The white one above is only $25 (on sale) so i'm trying to get my paypal to work. I need lots of winter hats, not really, I live in the desert.
