Tina I just love those pictures. The puppy with the white paws is adorable.
My house needs so much work I don't even want to think about it. My hubby is absolutely no help when it comes to fixing anything. He is a good cook though. I amaze myself at what I've taught myself to do.
I took some pictures at our local Animal Shelter. I go there to play with the cats. I'll post them this week.
Hugs,
Mariann

Tina, your puppy's are just adorable! If I could I would adopt them all. Here are my two bandits that we rescued from Kentucky while on vacation.


The black and white one is Maya and the brown one is Barney.
This is Bogart my 20lbs. cat

I have to transfer some more pictures to photobucket, I just figured out how to post pictures! Yipee!!!

I had to reload this thread to get to see all the pics of the puppies, hate this durn dial up, boy those guys have gotten big! love your house, and of course was scoping out the houseplants! I need to slow down on that habit, counted em yesterday and the tally is now 62, I have plants in everyroom of the house including the boys bathroom and their bedrooms, it will be 61 in a few days however, I am losing my rubber tree at a alarming rate:(

bogartbaby, your cat is georgeous, I had a 28 lb cat that I had to give to my brother, he was black and white, he looked like a milk cow, and his head looked so tiny compared to his body. I love the big cats, used to adopt those from the humane society because they told me no one wanted the big ones, I had 4 at one time that were all over the 15lb mark, I think they are calmer then the smaller ones (I had a yellow one named Garfield)
had the biggest one the longest, but when we moved we had one of our cats poisoned and I was scared to death that would happen to Elroy too, so I gave him up, there was no way I was going to be able to keep him in the house, he wanted out when he wanted out (he was used to being on the farm, coming and going as he pleased) so now he is happy (and alive) he gets to have his way, he loves to go out and hunt (I know gross)

Oh my god. I don't even really like dogs and those puppies are so cute!!!

Michelle, where do you keep your rubber tree in the winter vs. summer? I have mine in a spot where it gets extremely low light. It's dropping leaves but not really fast. I wonder if it will be dead by summer?

Look what's in bloom!

Michelle, I can't even imagine what a 28lbs. cat would look like. Do you have any pic's? Bogart is a
inside cat, king of the castle. I can't belive anyone can be so heartless to poisen an animal. I'm so sorry to hear that you lost your kitty that way.

Mariann, you have a heart of gold! That is a beautiful cat, and I'm glad she found a loving family.

Quiz: These are the Funkiest seed pods I've ever seen. How about some guesses as to what tree they belong to. I will say that had I not known what the tree was I would never have guessed either. Give it a try ladies.

Funky is right Mariann.Oh My Goodness!! Look like something off of an old male tree? Oh I know that was *bad* but I just couldn't resist. Mariann I don't have a clue.I am really curious to find out though : )

Hi Angels!

Mariann - I am so pleased to hear that - that beautiful kitty was adopted. They are hard to adopt out around here. Most peoplejust throw them outside in the country somewhere. Makes me ill. Great work!

Deanie - What a breath of fresh air! LOVE the color. I have one but I don't think it is going to bloom. I have been treating it like a regualr houseplant. It is beautiful and green, with many leaves, but don't they need a dormant period of some type?
I was afraid to let it go dormant, as I really don't know how, and it was Ricks grandmas. I would hate to kill it.
None of my Christmas cactus look like they are going to bloom anytime soon :-(.

Nancy - rotflmbo! An old male tree! Ha...thats my guess as well. That or a witches nose tree (I know, there isn't such a thing). I am very curious as to know what the tree is. I may have to do some reearch.
Great quiz Mariann!

OK, too much to do and no time to finish it all -

I'm sure I'll be back later!
Hugs to all my angels -
Tina

Tina & Nancy you two are so funny. I needed a good laugh today or any day for that matter.
Hint: It's not an evergreen. It's flowers are quite large.
LOL

OK, I have researched until I am blue in the face. I need more hints, LoL

Is it a tropical or deciduious? zone hardiness?
Can it get quite large, or is it an ornamental?
Does it bear edible fruit?

Oh boy I hope you come and check the forums soon. I wanna figure this out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LoL,
Tina

Hi All,
Someone got it! Julie you are right.. The tree is a Magnolia x soulangeana. This species doesn't bear many pods, that's why I only had a few. Creepy looking aren't they?
Thank you ladies for playing.
Hugs,
Mariann

tastefullyjulie, My rubber tree was in extremly low light at first and the leaves started getting black spots on it and falling off, I have moved it to higher and higher light since then and nothing seems to be making a difference, poor thing.

bogartbaby, I do have pics of Elroy, but they would have to be scanned into my computer, and every time I try to post those they come out really tiny, I will do that on Monday, and I will try to mess with them and see if I can get them any bigger:)

This is at the entrance before you get to my house, I just love the colors. There are 3 lakes and my dogs take turns walking me around them every day!







We found this little guy on the way back from our walk.
I better get back to my candy making! Talk to you soon.

Little guy?

Candy, it's funny you should say that. I just got home from the store to get cookie and candy making supplies. But then I walked through the bulk aisle and saw all the holiday candy on sale so I decided to put all the merckens back and just buy CANDY! LoL

oh deanie, just spectacular scenery. what a view. i love the reflection on the water. these picures are just gorgeous (not the little guy though). so what kind of candy are you making? how much do you make?

julie, what does merkens go for in your area? i did get your email and thank you. not necessary, but i do appreciate it.

i had a rubber tree once, it was so beautiful. it immediately dropped leaf after leaf after leaf. my sister-in-law paid a small fortune for it at the time, it was massive. it just never came alive again. she never gave me another plant. i didn't kill it, it just died.

mariann, my guess would have been the rotting tooth plant. i have two of those trees. gorgeous specimens and a total PITA at the same time - just so messy while it's going through its stages.

here are my new thanksgiving pieces. the yellow/green leaf dish, tina was so kind enough to send me. it is just perfect for cranberry sauce and is such a welcome addition to my collection. tina, i just love it - how very thoughtful, it's from your heart and means so much to me.


a full view of the tureen

and this is just because i liked it. no need, just want.

I almost forgot about this post. Maryanne, every year I tell myself I will only bake a few varieties of cookies, then I get carried away and end up with 8-10 diff. varieties. I am raising two termites(teenagers) after all !!! LOL
Ahhh, gone are the good old days where you could eat anything you want and not gain an ounce. Now it's just "a moment on my lips, forever on my hips!"
I did take some pictures of some of the stuff I made and it's in my computer somewhere, when I find it I will post.
In the meantime here is my charlie brown tree that my DH picked up at Lowes for $19.95 he was so proud of it when he brought it home, I just did not want to hurt his feelings so I clipped here and there to make it presentable. Next year I'm going with him!



My Santa collection.

That's it for now, I'm going to look for those candy and cookie pictures.
Wishing you all a Christmas filled with surprises!!!!!
