Hi Rechelle, your idea of relaxing is right up my alley. My candle would be apple pie. Mmmmmmm it smells like baking a pie. My favorite food.

Have a wonderful day relaxing. Smile!

Hi Rechelle,

I LOVE your blue post. I love to read anyway and a blueberry candle...I bet that smells WONDERFUL!

I can't believe you found a standard poodle. I'll have to read your blog and see if you have posted about her. I just use a grooming comb (occasionally) very gently. I am not great about keeping mine combed out, but they both go once a month and we keep their coats fairly short, so they don't tangle very much. The ears are the main thing we "try" to keep combed so they don't mat between the grooming visits.

Happy Blue Monday....hope it is a great one!

Dawn said...

I love reading in a room with a candle burning. OH, the smell of blueberry is just lovely!!!

I have a couple of patterns for fingerless gloves. I think that they would to be a bit tight to help and knitting is usually looser than that. If you'd like to give it a try I'd be happy to make you a pair!

take care,
Dawn

Thanks for stopping by my Blue Monday blog post today and leaving your comments. I have to say, my youngest was 19 and away at college before I got my first Lladro piece... so there is hope Dawlin'.
Hope you have a chance to stop back by French Lique for Wordless Wednesday!

Happy New Year, Dixie

Victoria @ Auction Girl Vintage said...

Happy New Year, Rechelle. That blueberry candles sounds like it's yummy! And I love the pink roses tablecloth from your Pink Saturday post, too (I'm playing catch up, so might as well cover both days, huh?).

Have you visited the lovely gardens at the Cambria Pines Lodge? They're so beautiful in the spring and summer, and the cental coast is so nice and sunny at this time of year (compared to Bakersfield, of course :o)

Hugs,

Victoria

I can almost smell the candle of blueberries !
Greetings from Belgium !

Darlene said...

Morning Rechelle,

I finally got back by to read about Daisy. I am so glad you brought her home with you. I can't IMAGINE someone giving up any animal especially a poodle(since I am an absolute poodle lover). They are VERY intelligent when you take the time to train them. I am so glad she found her forever home with your family!♥

Sarah said...

I can almost smell your blueberry candle! Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Alex said...

Hope you're having a good week! :)
