Preparing for her big Art Sale
The Bug has decided that she's going to hold an "Art Sale" this weekend. She's been busy creating one-of-a-kind masterpieces, which she intends to sell for $6 each. Why $6? Because she's 6, of course! She's going to set up a table in her dad's front yard and rake in the cash, or so goes her plan. She's saving up for her "very own puppy". She really really really really really really really wants a Rhodesian Ridge-back. Or a Bernese Mountain dog. Or a Chihuahua. Or a Golden Retriever. Or a Corgi. Or a Miniature Doberman. Or a Long-haired "Dutch-und". (and don't even try to tell her it's called a "Dachshund" because you don't know what you're talking about.) Can you tell this kid watches WAY too much Animal Planet??
PS. I made that dress she's wearing. It turned out pretty well...until you look at the zipper. But we won't talk about that. OK??
Here's a photo I took the other evening as the most wonderful summer thunder-storm rolled in. I have no idea what that tower-thing is, but this is exactly as it looked from our front yard.
