So here is a bouquet of roses…Photobucket But once again they are made of coffee filters! 

Here is the link to the directions and pattern for these roses, be sure and watch the video, otherwise it will be difficult. 

Oh this has been so much fun and the more you do the faster and better you become!  In fact, I had this vase on my kitchen table and had some friends over, One of them asked where did you find roses this time of year?  My reply, “the kitchen cupboard” ??  I then explained what they were made of!PhotobucketI even added some brown to my paint to give that light sunburned effect.  Ok, enough about these beauties.

Here are a few more entries in the Dolce Diaries…

Today I got to play with my friends Nate and Andy; Nate just can’t get enough of me…  My mom thinks I am funny because when given a treat I pretend I am “burying” it…  I go through this long process of using my nose to toss invisible dirt over the top of my treat.  (Mind you I am sitting on top of my soft pink pillow) This takes me a very long time.  Then when it is “buried” just right, I stare at my work….  I patiently wait, until I just can’t stand it anymore, I “uncover” it, and gobble it up!

This morning I went back to the vet to start my puppy shots.  My mom walked me over in my baby sling, and I was so excited to see Nama and all her work friends.  They called my name and I went in the room, where I was rudely poked with a needle….  Can you imagine, here I am sweet as can be and they poke me!  I let out a good cry; they apologized and told me it was to keep me safe and healthy.  Umph….  Let’s just see how happy to see everyone I am the next time I have to go back.  I heard Nama tell my mom my next appointment is on Valentine’s Day.  When we got home my mom and dad went to Target and bought me a GIANT pink “diamond ring” it’s a chewy for my puppy teeth and I LOVE it!

Today I spent the day playing and sleeping.  My family says I snore… I don’t believe them.  My mom was busy cleaning house for a Mary Kay party…  I got to come out and meet the ladies and I wet on my mom, because I was so excited to see all these people, who were making cutie noises at me.

So my parents have been trying to figure out just where to put my “playpen” and after moving it all around its back in its original spot, smack dab in the middle of the gameroom.  I like it there best anyway.  Now they have this grandiose idea they are going to liter box train me, did you know they sell a dog liter pan (it’s larger than a cats) and dog liter… the liter is compressed paper made into long pellets.  Well, I like this concept and the liter too.  My mom put me in and I started eating the pellets!  She emptied it although it won’t hurt me and put my puppy in there, and I have used my “box” about 4 times!

Super Saturday

Boy, does my hubby know how to score points!!  He said this morning he was going to the store to buy “milk” and came home with milk but also a huge fall bouquet of flowers.  I was in the kitchen making pancakes, and he said “do you like these?”  When I turned around there he was holding the flowers out to me!  I wrapped my arms around him and he said, “I thought you could use these since you weren’t cherished yesterday.”  Ahhhhhhh  What a guy!
