My dear Jack

This was my sweet boy or as I would call him "Baby J"
Jack my dear 4 yr. old Shih Tzu
Jack was born with kidney disease & succumbed to it last night, unfortunately & thus has left me broken hearted.
Jack never new he wasn't healthy & had the best disposition of any dog I've ever known.
He was a darling among dogs.
I know everyone that loses one feels it, but honestly Jack never growled, never new a stranger, & was the most friendliest fur beast ever.
Jack was in love with our guinea pig & always wanted to play with him.
He was our Miniature Schnauzer Belle's puppy or so they each thought.
He enjoyed keeping your toes warm or laying calmly on your lap. And with a basket of toys only played with one (squeaky shoe), heaven forbid it get stuck under the couch. Although he loved a chew on his bone.
When he would get chilled he enjoyed his t-shirts & would even reach his paws up to put it on.
Jack wasn't into tricks but he knew the word t-r-e-a-t.
He never misbehaved other than the shred of an occasional tissue. It's almost hard to believe he could be so perfect, he did seem like a furry little angel.
Rest in peace Jack without sickness for you are already sorely missed.
And so this Jill is without her Jack.

Fun Finds

Sketchers Roadies - Expressway
Faux cupcakes

Gourmet candle collection

Who doesn't enjoy fun finds?
I recently found these adorable "Bambi" boots on & they were too cute to pass up? If you love shoes they really are very reasonable & shipping was FREE.
I was shopping at my local fav T.J. Maxx & found this domed plate stand & of course had to have it! How cute is it with my faux cupcakes?
Next is my FAV candle's made by they have the best scents (as I luv the baked food yummy smells) There candles are made of soy & burn clean. The last local store to carry them sadly went out of business so I either will order online or road trip!
I decided to make some domino & scrabble pendants today so I'm enjoying my candle scent & listening to Lady AnteBellum's newest album "Need You Now"
I'll post my finished pieces soon.
