CHRISTMAS - WHO LET THE DOGS OUT



I finally found my Christmas pictures in this darn computer. Please bear with me. Even though its January I still wanted to show you my Christmas pictures and the dogs said they wanted to meet you, they are sooooooo excited.






Please meet Waldo he is my Border Collie rescued dog who is about 9 years old and my helper in the garden and trouble maker.




Can you see Waldo smiling - because he loves to have his picture taken - he is quite the HAM!!
Guess he thinks he is a person, are your animals like that?




This is Lili and she wants you to see her eyes, she thinks that they are her best feature.  She is a rescued dog and is about 4 years old, and the sweetest dog you would ever meet.



Lili wanted  you to see her profile and how pretty she is.  I know she is pretty but if she could help me a little more in the garden - that would be great - she thinks she is a DIVA LOL and does not like to get her toe nails dirty or wet.  You know how those DIVA 'S are.


As you can see this is my Christmas tree in the living room and I would have shown it during the holidays, except I just couldn't find it in this darn computer.  As you can see I love love love red and it works so well for Christmas which is my favorite holiday.  See the rooster pillow on the couch - that was from my granddaughter Kelly for Christmas, and it is one of my favorite gifts. Everyone KNOWS how I love roosters and chickens.  I will have to do a post on that some day.



Here is another picture of my buddy, garden helper and yard supervisor -  Waldo.

Thank you all so much for visiting me and taking the time to read my second post and making me feel so very welcome.  

Please leave a comment as I read them all and love hearing from you.  If your not already a follower, please join me... Mary

  1. Hi Mary! Oh, I'm glad you found your Christmas pictures and I've enjoyed seeing them. Your tree is so pretty. I love your living room and the red sofa is wonderful. Oh, please do a post on your chicks and roos as I'm a big yardbird fan! :) What a kind heart you have to have adopted these two sweet dogs. Love seeing their little faces and their expressions.
    Be a sweetie,

  6. I am so happy to have found your blog. I came over from Sweet Nothings.Your dogs have the cutest expressions. My pomeranian loves to have his picture taken, too. I am in Missouri so my outside garden is sleeping right now. I have a lot of plants in my inside garden (window sill) right now. I checked out your first blog entry also. Loved seeing your roses, orchid, fern, and flower garden. I hadn't thought about hummingbirds drinking out of the birdbath. I have been putting a pot of flowers in my birdbath for the past couple of years. Maybe this year I will use it again for a birdbath. I plant zinnias to attract hummingbirds.

  7. Such a pretty living room, and yes, perfect for Christmas decor. Love your toile curtains and that red sofa. Your tree looks stunning. Waldo and Lilli look so sweet, and the way you wrote about their photo session was so cute. laurie

  8. Thank you so much for your comments. I also love the red sofa - when I saw it had to have it and I finally found the material to make the curtains. I also found the bench in almost the same pattern as the curtains.
    I do love my dogs and they are so good and a lot of company for me.
    Thanks for viewing my blog and hopefully you will enjoy them.
    Regards
    Mary

  15. Hi Mary. I'm so happy to meet you. Thanks for coming by the Cottage and leaving such a kind comment. And Happy V-Day to you also. I am one of your newest followers. You are just about exactly one year behind me in blogging. My year anniversary was Feb. 8. Isn't it fun. There are so many great people out here and so many talents. You will get so many ideas you won't know what to do with them all. Your Christmas home looks lovely. I bet you were glad to find your pictures. If you are like me (not technically savvy) sometimes it's hard to know where stuff is. I love your doggies. So sweet and pretty. We have a big red Golden who is about 12 years old. Dogs are so great. Well, welcome and come visit again..Happy Wednesday..Judy

  28. Hi Mary (& Waldo & LiLi),
    So nice to meet you. Thanks for your recent visit and kind comments.
    Personally I am happy to look at Christmas decor any time. Your living room is beautiful and, yes, the red couch is perfect with the tree.
    I see you are new to blogging. I think you are going to love it. So much inspiration and friendly people.
    Your garden is gorgeous. The orchid is amazing! I look forward to seeing more of your garden and, of course, the sweet doggies too.
    I'm your newest follower :).

  33. Mary,
    Thank you for visiting us and following Red Rose Alley. First of all, I love your name, Mary. Second, I am glad to see that someone loves RED as much as I do. My kitchen was in red, and I just changed it to turquoise. Your tree looks so lovely in your living room, and Waldo is such a cute dog. I also wanted to say that I appreciate how big your font is on your posts - they are always easier to read. It's so nice to meet new friends, and I am now following you too. Have a sweet day.

  41. Hi Mary. So glad your friend told you to visit. You are a little like me. I love all the things that I do including your loving dogs. They are the world to me even though some days they are too much . Kitty jumps on my tablescape and mess things up so I have to take everything breakable off as soon as I take the pictures. The dogs are in the window barking at the dogs going walking. Never a dull moment. I spent a lot on my garden last year and we got so little rain they just died.I will be a follower.

  42. Oh Mary, your doggies are both delightful! Yes, I can see how Lili might be just a tad too dainty and shy away from some hard work, but can you blame her? She's so pretty! In contrast, Waldo looks like he thrives on getting his paws dirty if they will help to get the job done! Your home is absolutely gorgeous, so cozy and inviting, and Christmasy!

  43. In an attempt to improve the country’s economic performance as well as the career prospects of many young people it is important to maintain the apprenticeship programme. Apprenticeships are extremely important as a means by which we can increase skill levels, develop sustainable employment and help many businesses grow and develop.
