What do you mean you’re going back to work?

I’ve been off for the past week and the pups have gotten quite used to my presence. They are in for a bit of a rude awakening today.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Warmth

My submission for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.

Sweetie’s mom just recently moved back to northern Nevada, after living in Hawaii for ten years. Needless to say, her blood is a bit thin, so we tried to help alleviate her shivering bones this Christmas.

Faux Wall

I’m experimenting with creating backdrops. I put this one together quickly after dinner last night. It is about a yard and a half of striped fabric and a baseboard to simulate a wall.   Issues: getting the fabric not to pucker or drape. I’ve got ideas on how to remedy this in the future.

Bibi has proved useful…


Snoopy was pulled onto my set.


Buddy was a bit more reluctant, but I managed to pull this one off.


On my next test, I’ll be sure to iron the backdrop.
