A Little of This, A Little of That

Happy Monday... or rather, happy let's-get-this-week-over-and-done-with and onto-the-long-weekend day!  Time for a little of this and a little of that...

I had lunch this afternoon with Tango's Mom and was able to give her some gifts that I can now show off to you.  The first was "Lil Tango," as his creators Karen & Cyndi named him....

Karen and Cyndi make these adorable stuffed pups and earlier this year, they had gifted me with "Newman" (on the right) in honor of Ryan Newman and his US Army paint scheme.  He was so cute, I just had to ask if there was anything they could do for this special circumstance ... and I can't thank them enough!  Although Tango is mainly a black beauty, they got to thinking and creating...  The result is Lil Tango, who I truly hope will bring Tanya some comfort when she needs it, as I know the days are still tough....
 
TangoNecklaceI also got her this beautiful engraved pebble necklace from sjENGRAVING.  I thought it was something unique that she could either choose to wear or hang in a special place, depending on her mood.  The polished pebble also reminds me of a "worry stone" and I love that she can hold it in her hand and use it in that manner as well.  I highly recommend their Etsy shop to anyone looking for any engraved stone items.  The stone truly is simply beautiful...

The kids are glad Mom made a new friend at Zuke's!  Before she left the daily grind behind (although really, how hard could it be to work at such a great company?) to take off on a cross country adventure, Andrea sent us a big 'ole box of  some of their favorite treats, as well as 2 awesome Zuke's tees for Mama Lapdog!  Thank you Andrea, we luvs it all!

Thanks to some wonderful ladies across the US, we just donated another 63 preemie/infant hats, 4 pairs of booties and 1 blanket to the Special Care Nursey from Friends of Emma!  Special thanks to my Mom for delivering them in person.  She informed me that the nurses had to take each and every hat out of the box to look at and even one of the doctors came out to thank us for them.

Ooooh, those dogs are too darn adorable and I love the pendant. Great job getting so many people to donate the knitted items. I love when we call our fellow knitters together to save the world one stitch at a time.

Neat little dogs soft sculptures and the idea of the engraved stone is really very thoughtful.

It's nice to see all the pretty little hats that will keep those tiny heads warm.
