Peters new collar

Last September we bought Jodie a new fancy martingale collar for her 3rd birthday. We got it from a small company in Bridport, Dorset called Kitsch Collars. A woman named Dolly makes all the collars by hand and to order. Jodie looks lovely in her slightly medieval style green daisy collar and it is always being admired.

       Now that our new dog Peter has really settled in and has proved to be as good as gold out walking,we decided it was about time he had the Kitsch collar treatment too. On Saturday his new collar arrived and he looks great in it. We also splashed out on two matching velvet leads...now we can walk them on leads that are the same length, which is much easier.

We've had some very enjoyable walks together over the last week as the sun has shone most mornings. The dogs have had a spring in their step and so have I.

Easter Chick Wreaths.

Its over a month since I last blogged anything....since then I am another year older, have done lots of running, including several X country and fell races, a stint of supply work and have sold quite a few brooches via Etsy. There have been various domestic improvements, for example a newly decorated bedroom and the tumble drier is now properly installed in the kitchen so I dont have to open the bathroom window and stick the hose out.
       I am mulling over the idea of a small easter sale in Algernon Terrace on the Saturday before the Easter weekend to sell some Easter wreaths and may be a few spring themed garlands..... Today I made a couple of things that might be included.
