Leif Gizmo within 1 year!

Y This is Leif Gizmo as a puppy, he arrived here when he was already 3 months old; always a happy little buddy....
....and now: a sturdy male dog, enjoying his life! Y I would rather be one of these Penguins; it is so hot here that it is almost frustrating. We are not really prepared for such warmth! In the western parts of Germany there were heavy showers and thunderstorms, but not only hot! Soon all will be dried out and we will get bush fire warnings.... :(

~ @ Roses @ ~

Will add some colour today to this blog! So here are some of the roses that just bloom in my neighbourhood! Lovely, aren't they?
It is too hot for me today to do anything else but blogging. I always think that summer is lovely and I love it indeed....for about 30 minutes or so. After that the heat makes me lazy, sleepy and sometimes I even get headaches. Fortunately we live quite up north, so it is not always that warm! Nevertheless earlier today I was out with the dog in the woods. It was nice and shady, still warm, so just right for a long walk. We enjoyed it. The dog could also cool down in the creek, although most of the water was dried off...
You can't imagine how I long for Fall! This is MY season!!!

Y My dear Fritz! He did field work together with me and was always by my side!
Vil aldri glemme deg!!! He was born 9. January 1996 in Gokels in Germany, has travelled much in his life; his favourite was to be in Norway! On 4. June 2007 he decided to go over the Rainbowbridge in my arms by his own will, exactly at noon he just let go! We are all unconsoleable...

Y Dear Olly! We spent almost 20 years together. In your last 2 years you even started to travell and - surprisingly enjoyed it! After so many years you grew old and sick and I finally released you with my own hands on 23. March 2007! It took you only 1 minute to walk over the Rainbowbridge... I miss you much...
Y Little Hexe arrived with us on 3. August 2005! She is an original Norwegian Forestcat without pedigree, born in Skien in Telemarken in Norway. Always friendly, coaxy and looking pretty, she gives so much joy and is such a lovely sight to see....
Y Leif Gizmo was born 27. May 2007 in Rendsburg in Germany. His young mum was a streetdog in Turkey, not an easy life for a dog downthere and it was about to end real soon. Dogs often get poisoned, beaten, run over, gasified there! This was also the destiny of his ancestors, but his mum and uncle were rescued and flowen to Germany; his mum already pregnant although herself still a puppy... he is my sensitive giant, playful, happy and represents the type of dog known in the area his ancestors come from!

Please have a look at my other blog! Some nice offers will appear there! Enjoy!!!

> My Production > Muffettees >

Here is to get a little idea of what I am producing! I Y mufettees and other accessories! This pair is still for sale! Made of sockyarn and a special silky yarn in lovely rosewood; they are soft and warm!
This pair is quite exclusive: out of tealcoloured 100% Alpaca, the edge is silky NORO yarn from Japan and with embroidery of Bohemian glass beads, wooden and gemstone beads! This pair is sold since long...
Lovely girlish pair made out of OnLine yarn, actually a sockyarn, but definitely too special coloured and pretty to be worn in shoes. With a beige silk rose! Sold!
Exclusive pair made of NORO yarn from Japan! With green glass beads embroidery on the edge! Sold to Norway!
Warm pair of camelcoloured 100% Alpaca; special embroidery on the edges: little red flower beads, green glass beads and others make this pair a real eyecatcher - that's why it is sold already!
Next winter will surely come; so many new items will be out soon! I look very much forward to the cooler season....just love Fall with all its colours....not that we have it real hot here in the North of Germany right now, but the warmth is said to come back next week.
Enjoy your Sunday! Y

Y Welcome again!
I started this blog already last Fall, but kept on with my old blog!
Of course you are still welcome to visit will be mostly in Norwegian, while this one should be more in English or German.
Feel free to write and contact me in any language you prefer!
I will offer here also some of my articles, such as trims, buttons, beads and other beautiful items! It will be a pleasure to send it to worldwide destinations!
Also I design accessoires - mostly! Which I like to show here as well...
Now that my sons are grown all my attention goes to my pets. I always lived with cats all my life and since 1976 I always have at least one dog! Our home is actually near Hamburg in northern Germany, but I lived in many places around the northern hemisphere...a definite second home I have in Telemarken in Norway!
