    That necklace is beautiful! And the links are so even - well done! Did you use 20 gauge copper?

    That puppy is lovely I am so glad it is going to somewhere lovely, even though it would be hard to match the love and care from you and yours.

    Lucky puppy to get a new home and a big sister! I am surprised how much she has grown and changed from those first pictures that you posted of her.

    Now I am off to follow your link and visit Ruth Rae's site!
