My rescued pet

Hi Beau, the newest little boy in our family! Doesn't he look sweet? My husband calls him our "miracle dog". Beau was abandoned about half a mile from our house and came to us one afternoon about a month ago covered in ticks and fleas and very, very hungry. I called the nearby neighbors to be sure he didn't belong to anyone and after no one claimed him he became our little boy. He immediately got a good bath and annointed with tick drops and a flea collar and has been my little shadow every since. I took him in to the vet for a check over and found out he is about 6 months old and a full-blood Jack Russell terrier. Beau is very well-mannered and is already housebroken and has claimed his spot on the foot of the recliner or the bed (when he isn't IN the bed, completely under the covers and at the foot of the bed). As you can see in these photos, Beau was very lucky to find a family to love him.

Cleaning Au Natural

What could be better than cleaning your home with all natural cleaners? While I was browsing blogs one evening I came upon this lovely website, French General. As well as having absolutely lovely antique French textiles, there are also wonderful tips and recipes for making and using organic cleaning products which can be found in the Au Natural section of the website. I can't wait to try these chemical-free cleaning products in my home!
