TMTA Challenge

This weeks theme for Think Monday Think ATC is Dog Days of Summer. It couldn't have come at a more appropriate time here in Northern California where we're expecting 100 degree weather!! Usually it warms up in the late afternoon, but the past couple of days I've noticed myself closing windows sooner in the day, to keep the cool in.

I was trying to find a Victorian image of a King Charles Cavalier--which we have, named Winston, but this is the best I could come up with. Not a Cavalier, but a cute puppy nonetheless!!
My daughter, Courtney, will appreciate the quote--she is a huge Jane Austen fan. The quote is very fitting for me these days...feeling more frumpy than fabulous. I wilt in the heat. But on the other hand, I can go plop myself in front my 'puter with a glass of iced tea, visit with all you lovely ladies and perk up in no time!!
Have a wonderful day!!


  1. Oh wow this is really lovely.
    Gorgeous ATC.

  2. I love this Myrna! I'm the same exact way, I get overheated so quickly having all this extra "insulation" and enjoy it so much with fall finally makes it's appearance. Your work is beautiful ~ and I love your journal for the contest...xxoo, Dawn
