I am glad you found a good home for the little doggie! I hope you have a good new year Karla !!


Nice to hear that Janice and her family as safely together.

Prayers that the funeral service brings peace to all who knew Sugarwing's Nanny.

"Let's all have the happiest of New Years!" And all the days after, too!


Karla: You and Rich are 2 very kindhearted people, that was a very sweet thing to do. How old were the kids getting the dog? Happy New Year.


hi Karla, I'm so glad to her that sweet little Janice will have a wonderful home again. I'm so sorry to hear about Nanny and I hope that the family heals from this loss. You and your husband are so dear to make sure that her sweet dog is once again loved and safely delivered to is new owners.

Karla, that is fabulous! I am sure that Nanny was watching over you all the way on your journey. It makes me think, too, of this quote:

"To the world, you are one person but to one person, you are the world."

Am I the only one that has trouble getting to your boutique? I haven't been able to shop for months. Do you have any vintage millenery? I would sure be interested if you do!

Sound like Janice is going to have a wonderful life because of you....

What an adventure for the family and dog to get together.

I've been catching up on your blog. You've certainly had a very memorable Christmas... both happy and sad things. I'm sorry to hear about Sugarwings' Nanny. How sad. Time is fleeting and we just never know how much of it we have left. Live in the moment. (I know you do)

Blessings in your new year,



So glad that story had a happy ending! Thank you for sharing you stories with us. I love your frank take on life. Not to mention your endless creativity! Happy New Year!
