#Dogs #FolksyFriday

Today for Folksy Friday I decided on a dog theme. There are some lovely items for your pets as well as lots of goodies for dog lovers. Maybe you know someone who loves dogs and loves to receive dog related gifts or you like to have some for yourself. Whatever you fancy I hope you will find it on here or if not here then pop along to Folksy and have a look through. There are so many fabulous dog and animal related items that I had no hope of including even a fraction of them. I hope you enjoy the ones I did select for your your perusal.
Let me think now... what did I do yesterday. I finished a lacy cotton wrap I have been crocheting. I also beaded it all around the lower side. I was going to use wooden beads, but didn`t have enough of any one type and the logistics of working out what to put where was just too tricky as I didn`t want it to end up looking messy. I did try for about half an hour or so, rearranging beads along the length but gave up in the end. I used small amber glass beads instead and I think they worked quite well. I shan`t have a chance to photograph it until Sunday as I am at work Friday and Saturday. However once it is photographed I shall list it in my shop. It took quite a while to make and the beads all took quite a while to stitch into place but it was worth the effort. Well I think so anyway, you`ll have to let me know what you think.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.

Oh dear me, once more the rain
and I sigh, please not again.
There`s just no middle road
we either get none or a load.
I wrote this rhyme the other week
when rain we all did seek.
Now I`ll add it here today
just so I can have my say!

Water is the breath of life
and also causes so much strife.
It falls freely from the sky
but then we all ask, why?
Why this place and not there
it hardly seems very fair.
No water means no crops growing
there is no proper circle flowing.
Nature has a circular flow
that helps all things to grow.
A barren desert is so dry
only sand to shift and sigh.
No trees there to bring the rain
we keep destroying again and again.
We don`t learn the lessons of life,
destruction only brings more strife.
But then we were hearing small voices
railing against the choices
that humanity has made in the past,
saying we must change and fast.
As many more realise, the voices are loud,
now we are all helping and feeling proud.
Helping to restore nature
so our planet has a future!
