New Purse

Check this purse out. I love the design and colors!! So pretty. I am really liking olive green. I think it is getting to be a popular color. And I LOVE stripes!!! Plus you got to have pockets on both sides and bunches inside.

My Diet

OK I am going to post my pictures here as I loose the weight. This way I can be accounted for by YOU!! Maybe that will help me keep going. I have lost 35 pounds so far but I haven't budged for about 8 months but now I am on a roll again. I have lost a couple of pounds this week drinking my protein drink from Herbalife and eating the right foods. (The protein bars help me too because they taste like a snickers bar) Anyway here are my pictures. Can you guess which is the first? I will keep you updated.

Sunday Evening "Heat Wave"

Boy if that isn't the truth. It has been in the teens and today it was in the 30's. WOW! Anyway I hope everyone is doing good. My doggie kids are doing great. I have a friend though who's mom just passed away on Wednesday so please keep her in your prayers.
As for my shops. I have been adding more to my vintage shop and have finally figured out how to make the pictures look great. Check out some of the brooches that I have added.
I also think that I am going to try to continue to design my own fabric. I have started but have never kept going. It will of course have dogs on it. These are dogs from the shelter. I want to donate some of the money to our local shelter if I can do it. So keep watching.
Well got to go. Hope everyone is having a great evening watching the Super Bowl. (Not my thing)
