"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

This is my baby. OK, so he's really my baby's baby. But I call him my baby.
I also call him my little man, my little munchkin and my cutie pie.

Grandmas can do that.

His parents also call him "Goo" or "Goo Goo" or "The Goo."

We are SO going to confuse this cherubic child.

I just happened to have my mom over on the same day that I was going to babysit for Liam, aka the goo goo munchkin man. It was also his third birthday. We decided to have a little early afternoon mini birthday celebration for him. Complete with little presents and cupcakes.

Yes, he is wearing a pink birthday hat. Sorry, John. It was that or
the Corgis' Christmas reindeer antlers. We went with the pink.

Really? I can open another one? Cool.

Umm, yes, that is frosting on his face.

And these are the coolest markers from Crayola.
They only color on their special paper.
Not on the walls. Or on your clothes. Or your skin.
♥ Awesome. ♥

My mom always decorates her cards with the coolest stickers and things...

We had lots of fun.

Because when you are three, happiness is all about singing Happy Birthday,
blowing out the candles,
the noisiest party horns, and opening the presents.
OH! Yes, and the sprinkles on the cupcakes.

The wicked imp Corgis have been removed from the studio so I can work in peace. They are all grounded. They are in separate rooms doing chores and making the house sparkle. Hopefully, they have learned their lesson. I doubt it, but hope springs eternal. Have a happy day, my lovelies! xo xo CS ♥

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn!

It has been quite a miserable Summer around here and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy to see it go. I'm missing my Bridget and Indy terribly. I'm looking forward to Fall and everything that comes along with it. Apple and pumpkin pie season, sweater weather, seeing far away friends, old friends and meeting new friends at the PWCCA National Corgi Specialty, the holidays, and let's not forget less frizzy hair weather. This morning I could tell I would need a sweatshirt because John and I were fighting for the covers and we were surrounded by wee beasties who were trying to snuggle down to keep warm. The Corgis were stirring so I got up to take them out so he could sleep in (a very rare treat for The Mister.) I made some coffee and turned on the computer.

Every once in a while I receive an email from Jane Dewey that I know is going to make me smile. Long time readers of this blog know that her Corgi, "Diva" enjoys dressing up and hamming it up for the camera. Here are a couple of photos of Diva.

Just look at her with that net veil hat.

She knows she looks smashing.

And who else could pull off wearing a spider on her head? Not many of us, I tell you.

And lest you think 'the Diva' is all fluff and glitter,

here is a picture of this little athlete during her MACH run.

Not to be outdone, here is Nelson, another of Jane's Corgis.

He is sporting his Sherlock Holmes outfit.

How can there be so much cuteness in one little body?

Elementary, my dear...

Enjoy this Labor Day, my lovely Corgettes! I hope you are doing something fun or relaxing. I'm finishing up some new original artworks which I'll share with you later on. Give your Corgis a cookie and a big kiss on the nose for me today, will you? xo xo -Cat ♥
