The Count of Monte Cristo


     Some day I will have to post a photo of my TBR (to be read) pile. If you'd seen my pile, you would understand that I DO NOT read many of the books that I create bracelets from. Haha, if I did read them, I would probably have only an eighth of the offered titles that I have now.
     Suffice it to say, I have not read The Count of Monte Cristo, so I cannot speak of the story. I read enough of the descriptions online, though, to know that the story involved being at sea, so I chose the cool ship charm for these bracelets. I'll just leave the photos here for you to have a peek at. If you have a friend who loves the French classics, this makes a great gift!

Puppy Photos - Just for Fun!


     I volunteer at our local animal shelter. When I applied to volunteer, my intention had been to take pretty photos of the animals, post on Facebook, and occasionally transport animals to rescue and foster homes. Unfortunately, though, the shelter is very shorthanded on volunteers and the fun stuff must often take a back seat to the dogs' and cats' basic needs.
     But, guess what?? I got a sunny day and my DSLR camera and got to take some photos! I thought it would be fun to share them here.

     This malamute mix is a big, powerful dog. He is also a giant TEDDY BEAR! When he stands on his hind legs, he is probably 5'5" in height.

     This little pit bull pup is just adorable. He came in with a german shepherd, who has since been pulled by a rescue organization. This little dude is now alone, and lonely. He seems playful and carefree in these photos but he really just wanted attention. It took me a while to get these shots. If I hadn't already reached my peak limit in pets, this guy would be home with me now.
