Miss Matilda Jane of Oklahoma

We have a new member of the family that came to us all the way from Oklahoma. I won her playing Cathy’s Christmas Countdown on Live well, laugh often, Love much. Take a look on her blog, because it’s not too late to participate.

Cathy is a dear blogging buddy, a fellow Pins and Needles member (come and join us) and a wonderful artist skilled in quilting, sewing and all sorts of arts and crafts. You will find a wonderful selection of crafts on her blog as well as yummy recipes to try.

THANK YOU, CATHY, FOR THIS LOVELY DOLLY! As you can see, she’s made herself right at home by exploring her new surroundings:


After being in the shipping box for a while, she needed some fresh air by sitting on the chair outside on the back porch (my usual crocheting spot.)

After that, she wanted me to lift her up on that tree because, like me, she seems to love them very much:


“Look ma, no hands!”

Then she made friends with my red paisley hippo:

She even helped me check something on the computer…she’s very smart, Cathy!


But her most favorite place to sit was right beside Gizzy. She likes him A LOT!


…and Gizzy likes her too! Thanks, Cathy, for sending your little Ms. Matilda Jane to live with us. We will be very happy together!

Miss Matilda is adorable! That was an awesome WIN!

Like her with little hippo, but with Gizzy there is just nearly too much cuteness to bear!

Miss Matilda Jane is adorable! I can tell she likes her new home - look at that broad smile of hers!

Giz has a new buddy! Very cute. By the way Doris, thanks for the tip on Windows Live Writer--what a difference with no more fiddling with word spacing and the photos are so clear and you can play with borders, etc.

Dear Doris,

Gizzy and his new girlfriend looks together so much adorable.
And Gizzy has a new haircut ... just cute!

Many Greetings and a big hug for Gizzy,

How swett is Little Matilda Jane. Looks like her and Gizzy will be fast friends. Loved this post, made me smile lots. Have a lovely day, blessings.

Denise Marie said...

OMG, she is sooooo cute, Doris! So glad you won her. I can't imagine the thrill it would be to ride the trains in Germany.

Girl, that Gizzy could win a contest. I saw Martha Stewart's dogs have a blog now and she's got contests going on. Do it...he could NOT be cuter. Have a great weekend.

Looks like you have lots of new friends coming to stay at your place. Gizzy looks pleased with his new play mates. Lovely Dolly and the softies you received are too cute.

Thanks for all your kind comments recently - I too am experiencing technical issues making it difficult to leave comments or respond to emails. @#&$!
