Oh such lovely charms! Both of them! So sorry to hear about Twinkle's paw. Oh poor baby.


Oh Karla, I feel so bad for Twinkle.
Thank goodness you checked on her when you
did and that your Husband thought quickly
with the bandaging until you brought her
to the Vet. Please give her a sweet
hug from me and I hope she feels better
very soon.



Sorry to hear about Twinkle's owie. Your charm giveaway is lovely, as always.


Jessica Canham

Oh no! Poor Twinkle! I'm glad you found her in time and hope she feels better soon.
Your charms are very sweet and I look forward to seeing your wallpaper journals featured in Somerset life!

Hope Twinkle is feeling better. She is too cute! Lovely charms too.

Oh poor twinks! I feel so bad for her. Glad she didn't bleed all over your house before you found her. (and I'm glad you didn't show those pictures!)



So glad Twinkle is doing better. Wishing her a speedy recovery!


Sweet Twinkle has an owie! I hope it heals quickly for her.

Kathy in Chicago

Awwww...your dear little Twinks drugged, tired eyes. Poor, poor baby. You are so lucky you were home and thank you for not sharing photos! Give that sweetie a big hug and kiss. Doesn't it make you feel just awful when something like that happens. I HATE that feeling. As for that pink poodle...it would look swell with Beth's transvestite doll. KIDDING! I'm just kidding!! But hopefully, it made you smile. Take care of dear Twinks and yourself! - Hugs, Kathy in Chicago


Oh Poor Twinkle! I feel so bad when my pets get hurt! All your goodies are lovely as always Miss Karla! Hope all is well with you and your family! hugs! karen....

Happy Birthday! I turned 52 last month so don't feel bad. I actually have been enjoying these over 50 B Days. I feel much freer at this point in my life. Hope little Twink's foot is recovering. Your charms are lovely. Pam


A very happy and blessed birthday to you! I know from experience (just a few months ago!) that the "51" is just a number, not too exciting. But I don't think I could handle the big excitement every year! Enjoy it, and warm thoughts for Twinks too, and hope she heals up real soon! Love your blog, it's the highlight of my morning! from your southern Kansas friend, Elaine

can you hear me singing "happy birthday"....if twinkle is howling then i guess i'm coming in loud and clear!!!

enjoy your day!!!

Renie Cee

Karla, the charms are great! Poor Twinkle, she looks so sad with her foot all bandaged. I showed her picture to my french poodle Beauregard and he sends kisses her way and said she was one hot babe. I said,"shame on you Beauregard", Twinkle is indisposed right now. You know how those french poodles are, always thinking about ooh la la. Maybe later when she gets to feeling better, they can talk.

Beth Marie

Poor little miss Twinkle! I hope she is better soon. She is so adorable with that sweet little face and that shiny coat. I just want to hug her! I bet she's a good comfort to you when you're feeling down and out. :)


Happy Birthday! Make a wish, you deserve it!

Karen Young

Happy Birthday Karla, Hope your day is special.

Hi, I just came across your blog two days ago, and I couldn't stop reading till I finished all your old posts, you seem to have a really creative life :)
You remind me so much of my mom, she loves roses ,fairies and her only grand daughter, which is in a way, just like yours , her little fairy..
I wish you and your family a happy life.


I'm Late! I hope you had a wonderful Birthday Karla!

Jane Palmer

Happy Birthday, Karla! Don't worry about turning 51 - just think about all the AARP mail you'll receive! :-)

Hope Twinkles is feeling better now! Poor little sweetie, born for beautiful vintage china and glass and now resigned to tin - at least her new water bowl isn't plastic!
