Sassy Egyptian Tile Stepping Stone~


My human mommy has spent the last 2 days getting me up at 3:44am to help her make these pawsome mosaic stepping stones.  They would make any of your human owners a great Christmas gift.  They are only $25.00 each and if you want your stone custom made she can do that too!  The shipping is only $10.70 Flat rate USPS Medium size box.  I love mine with lil fluffy puppies on them.  She even has kitty cat cartoon tiles she can use as well.  Have a beautiful day and don't dig up the lawn too much.  wOOf...wOOf...

Ah, The Smell of Fresh Grout...

I'm not sure about any of you, but grouting a stepping stone has got to be the biggest pain in the ass part for me when making a mosaic stepping stone.  However, the fresh smell of grout infiltrates the space around me and I love the smell.  Call me crazy (been there and still am), but it somehow takes me back the my kindergarten days when I would eat the paste we used in arts and crafts.  It's amazing how smells can take us back in time to wonderful memories.  I raise my bottle of Welbond glue and toast to "Smells".  I know, I am an oddball and I love myself for it and wouldn't change a thing.

Here is the newest addition custom created for a very nice kindred soul and her dog whom I have met on the River trail.  Our dogs are madly in love with eachother.  I used some of her old china she had from her grandmother along with other sentimental items she had.

My Dog Owns Me and I Can't Cut the Umbilical cord!~

Okay so it's way too obvious that I love dogs!  Their cute lil tails waggin' against the wall making a sound like a construction zone, if there were termites in the walls they would have been shaken off...running to hide from the sounds of rumble.  When you come home from a hot and hectic day, their they sit waiting for you by the washing machine...a sign to intruders, "Warning, my human's aren't home, I will harm you!"  Your eating dinner and there they sit so regal like with sad eyes saying, "I am begging, feed me a table scrap please oh please!"  Your are on your computer, it's quiet and your in deep concentration...and then you hear the puff...your dog looks at it's butt and then at you...wondering where did that sound and smell come from...he leaves the room looking at you while thinking, "I didn't do that!"
We go to great lengths to pamper our owners, a fluffy designer bed in every room (I bought all my beds through RustiesGrannys Beds), always a fresh bowl of water in every nook and cranny of the house as well as outside and on those hot days...they get ICE in their water bowls.  Who doesn't have endless varieties of doggy treats in the kitchen?  Every flavor imagined and you all would be lying if you said you haven't tried the beefy bacon one.  Yes, I thought it smelled wonderful so I took a nibble.   Okay, well it smelt good, but that was the end of that.  Cardboard is not my texture to the tongue palette!  If they like it, then that's all that matters.
I don't have human babies nor will I ever as age is now a factor for me, but I have a fluffy cutie patootie that has me wrapped around his paws.  I don't know what I would do without him, he is my companion, my best friend, my pal, and my advisor on all things cute and fluffy!.  He never complains about my weight, my bad habits, he gives me tons of affection without asking and he shows appreciation for all that I do.  "Eddie" is his name, or one of them at least...aka "Pumpkin Butt", "Doodle Bug", "Doodles" just to name a few.  Health wise, he lowers my blood pressure, he inspires me to make dog art, he lessens my depression because I know he is around.  For an old single gal like me alone in this world, it matters!
So I dedicate this post to all animals of all fluffy types, without you in our just wouldn't be life at all!  Oh one last thing, can you all buy my stepping stones so I can buy myself a new bed, he likes mine better and his bed is hard on my back.  Thanks so much!
