This is the place where I round up a corral chock-full of mixed media art, vintage collections, digital escapades, and some occasionally snarky observations about life with junk, books, rescue dogs and nearly-grown children.

Longing for Springtime

The Pet Show, originally uploaded by Calsidyrose.

This lovely image of children with their pets came from my stash of paper scraps. I don't know the illustrator because I pulled the image from an old discarded library book. The poem is sweet and the children are adorable.

Spring Bouquet

Flowers from my daughter for Valentine's Day.

Spring Lamb

A tiny chalkware lamb found at a thrift store.

Fountain Mist

And a fountain in a swanky neighborhood near our house.

The Texas redbuds are blooming, and the flowering magnolias in my neighbor's yard are open. Along the canal near my house, I spotted the first tiny bluets and the white bells of false onion. The deer vetch has also begun to bloom.


  1. I love that old print! It's August now, and after this hot, hot summer I'm longing for Springtime once again (but I'll take fall in a minute or however quickly it would like to come)!

  2. Love your site, Cathi! I too love dogs and kitties and horses...I even have a mini donkey!
