♥♥♥A New Addition To Our Family!♥♥♥

Here she is - Her Ladyship Juliette of Pinestream. Little Beagle Julie is coming to join our family next weekend. What a sweet face and just look at those socks!

Hopefully big brother Lucky-dog and big sisters Lucy and Sly will welcome her with open paws. I'm expecting a lot of sniffing. Lucky just turned 11 years old last month and Beagles Lucy and Sly turned one last week! Sly (J.R. Ewing's secretary) and Lucy (Ewing) are named after characters in the popular nighttime soap from the 70's - 90's - "Dallas" - so is Julie (another of J.R.'s secretaries on the show).

Going into winter is not the best time to get a new puppy, but we got Lucy and Sly last December and we all managed to survive the winter. I'm questioning our sanity, but everything will end up just fine.

Birdhouses and Outhouses at 2RavenChicks

Finally, we have posted some birdhouses to our Etsy site! They are made by the chief Raven guy - Husband and Father of the 2RavenChicks. They are made from recycled cedar fence boards from our backyard fence.

Here's an outhouse for the feathered friends - the Shoot the Moon Outhouse Birdhouse - complete with crescent moon ventilation, a rusty old cabin nail and a vintage Miller padlock:
We've named this one the Tarts and Bed Springs Birdhouse (what a BAD name - LOL). It's got an old tart tin and a rusty vintage bed spring and very knotty wood so what else could we call it?
