What do dogs dream off, bears, lace and daffodils.

January is moving along at a fast pace. February 14th and Valentine's Day can't be that far off.

I've used some of the antique lace I have, on a bear. Everyone knew that was the intended idea to start with.

Also on a denim top.

Lace is very fashionable at the moment.

After a few repairs to the lace I added it to the collar and cuffs, instant designer look.
I have to be careful when I wash the shirt the collar and cuffs don't fall to bits. I've just made a chuck it in the washing machine shirt into a hand wash only.

Monday is Amie Soto Blossom's birthday....our birthday girl.

Sometimes you can't help but wonder what dogs dream of when they are asleep.
She is asleep here, like some cats and dogs, she sleeps with her eye's open at times.
Amie IS ASLEEP BELIEVE ME.... I haven't added the sound of snoring here.

It could be a dream of daffodils and the signs of Spring.
No chance, it's been too cold here this week.

Could be Amie's dreaming of a bad hair day.

Or that juicy bone that is always just out of reach.

Cold weather has returned, where ever you are, keep warm and have a great weekend.

It's relatively warm here today, a nice change.

Lace is popular just now, but making more hand washables doesn't appeal.
It is pretty though.

My dogs dream and I often wonder what they're dreaming of. The best ones are when they wag their tails in their sleep. Those must be good dreams.

That's a cute pair of bears!
It's always the nicest shirts that have to be hand-washed and are usually a pain to iron too - you've made that shirt very pretty!
Dog dreams - rabbits, running...who knows. It makes me laugh when Clovis barks in his sleep, he sounds like a zebra!

The Daffodils are beautiful and
adding lace to your top is a wonderful idea! Your bears are
just the sweetest! I have a pattern,
that my Mom used to make bears, I
might just give it a try, one of
these days! You inspire me! Happy
Birthday, to Amie, today is my grand
daughter's birthday.

Bear Hugs & Blessings~Karen

Wonderful uses of some of your antique lace. I love the lace on the bear.

Allie said...

Those bears are totally gorgeous, dear Midge! And your shirt - the only way it could be more perfect is if you could still chuck it in the washing machine. VERY beautiful, and I bet it looks wonderful on you!

Sweet little Amie - I love it when they give little yips in their sleep, and their paws move, you just know they're dreaming of chasing squirrels or rabbits. Maybe Amie is dreaming that someone is laying next to her, snoring....cuz you know snorers never believe it's THEM.

And yes I know I owe you an email - it's coming!!!

Joanna said...

You made a nice use of the lace. It was made to be used, not forgotten. Maybe Amie is dreaming of Chops.

WoolenSails said...

You made some beautiful things with your lace.
We used to have a nice lace store and I used a lot of it on my doll clothing.

So, does Ami have any special plans for her birthday?


Myra said...

Darling bears... Hand-washing? Better you than me I say! lol!
Amie looks quite cozy there... 8-)

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Happy Birthday Amie Soto Blossom!
I hope you got some ice cream!

The bears are precious with the lace and denim. So precious.
