This week's Hostess the scintillating and curious Gattina over at Writer's Cramps
The Assignment
- She just want us to show a picture of your blogging place ! Our room or bed or whatever space(s) or place(s) you have to write your posts, and she hopes to be able to see a lot today. Sometimes when she reads or writes a comment she trys to imagine the place where we blog friend are sitting right now but it is very difficult. So today she hopes to satisfy her curiosity

Well I hope I don’t disappoint-
The following is one of my shelves (don’t mind the dust) in four shots
Starting at the left:

Geo node and a desert rose - both given to me by a rock hound friend of mine
A couple of gator that a pick up because a friend likes them and they remind me of her (Beer Ass this one is for you)
There in the back Hat Pins more about them later


A lizard vase - a gift because people mistakenly think I collect lizards, just because of one tattoo and a tee shirt or two, ok maybe 10 or 20.
A lizard figurine given to me by one of my nieces she was about nine at the time and got it with her own money so I display it with pride.
The frogs who knows, they got unpacked and these is where the got set and they seam to fit well with the grouping.


The start of the K-9 shrine
Reggie Rue - this was the first dog that was mine and only mine. He was a Puli or part Puli one of those dogs that have mob like hair. Yes, once for Halloween I dress like a scrub woman and added a mob handle to Reggie. Only problem was we did this in June. It was just to family and friends but we all had fun.


There is a picture of the Joneser and Boo.
Don’t let the photo fool you - Joneser is laying in the bed of the truck and Boo as a puppy is standing up on the tail gate.
Joneser was a Malamute and Boo is a Boarder Collie.
I got Boo as a squeaky toy (thinking if Joneser wasn’t alone he would stay at home) for Joneser. Your pets should not have pets. When I would come home from work I would have a lovely little Boarder Collie sitting alone in the yard, and we would have to go out and find that bad Malamute. The other thing I learned is that Malamutes are very hard to train if they don’t want to be trained. Boarder Collie’s live to please. Both have/had their own charms.
Lastly more Hat Pins - many moons ago the family decide I needed to collect something. Fear if I did not pick something the next thing I know I would have a room full of Precious Moments.
So I picked hat pins: - thinking one they would have a hard time finding any; two if they did they wouldn’t take up much room; three I didn’t think they would need to be dusted. I hate dusting.

Well that it for this weeks FM.

Thanks for stopping by and you can visit the others over at Writer's Cramps

Oooooh! I love your Fun Monday Logo! Did you make it yourself? I see we have a few things in common. I also love lizards, and crystals of course! I used to keep crystals all around my office computer as well. This poor one though gets dragged and left everywhere!

Gattina said...

Very cute, the only thing missing is your computer on one shelf, lol !

Pamela said...

After Karisma mentioned the logo I had to go back and check it.
very reptilian..!

And then, I also noticed I didn't see your computer. Do you use a lap top? You should have shown us your lap!

Ali said...

Love your desert rose. And that logo ...

alot of cherished memories there, take care Judyx

SwampAngel65 said...

Hat pins, huh? Well, at least I have something new to look for. I knwo how much you love hats, sol you must actually use those pins sometimes, right??

Yeah, where is your computer? I mean, I liked seeing a small glimpse into your life, but the main artery is missing!

"Joneser"??? I thought it was Par.....????

Ok, done here. Have to take some pics and do my own post. Later, Gator (hehehehe)

Hootin' Anni said...

Ummmmmm, there is one thing missing. The computer! Love the dog photo with the ceramic dogs. And you know what, I too have a small chunk of a geode near me when I blog.

My Fun Monday Blogging Area is posted now if you'd like to take a gander.....stop by. Have a great day.

I feel your pain with the dust. I just dusted for my bi-annual cleaning (okay, a bit of an understatement) and i needed a respirator to breathe through the cloud of dust! (Okay, a bit of an exaggeration.)

Mariposa said...

Yes, the logo is lovely!

And love your little cutie items...and yes, where the computer?! LOL

Swampwitch said...

Great new logo. Have the Nekked Lizards seen it? They will love it.
I very interested in knowing how you blog without a coornpooter...giggle giggle.

ellen b. said...

Hey, I don't see any dust at all. Fun shelves and goodies on them. I do love the logos lizard created!!

Jan said...

I see the computer fairy has visited you. You computer is the latest and greatest, it's invisible.

that is really interesting and you did not disappoint

storyteller said...

What a wonderful geo node! I’ve got something similar in my living room … but mine’s bluish in color. Love the lizard vase and other collectibles too.
Hugs and blessings,

I love all your creatures and the hat pins are very pretty. They make me think of my Great Auntie Evelyn who always had beautiful hat pins in her berets.

ChrisB said...

You gave us a great little tour but no computer~ so do you use a lap top?

lisaschaos said...

Cool! I like lizards and my mom likes frogs and we all like dogs! I thought I wanted a Puli for a while but decided it would be too much work.

Faye said...

Oh, I got a right good giggle over your fear of falling into a Precious Moments collection. Think I may share your opinions on that.

If my dogs were as handsome as yours there'd be a shrine to them as well. There's nothing more fun that living with a dog that's smarter than you are--border collies and malamutes in that category.

I love all your knick knacks and the puppy pictures are priceless.
