Be Back Soon!

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

My little Tula being adorable and keeping me company!

I wanted to pop in again and apologize for my erratic and unpredictable posting lately. My back issues have not improved much and and after weeks of physical therapy and countless doctor appointments I was able to meet with a specialist. Unfortunately, my herniated disk is quite sever and a portion even managed to detach itself and could potentially cause even more nerve damage.

With the recommendation from my physical therapist, specialist and surgeons I am having surgery to alleviate the pain and remove the herniation. I go in for surgery this morning and am actually looking forward to waking up and feeling pain free! It’s been over six months since this all began so I am thrilled to be on the mend soon.

From what I understand, the surgery is quite common and the recovery is pretty quick. I’m not sure what to expect in the next week or so but wanted to give you all a heads up if I disappear for a few days. I hope to be back here soon and looking forward to being on a more normal schedule.

Thanks again to all of you for your support and understanding. My best to you all and see you soon! xoxo


DIY Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Monday, November 30th, 2009



Hope everyone here in the states had a good Thanksgiving weekend! I got to try a few projects I’ve been really meaning to do, while the hubby pretty much stayed glued to his Xbox. All in all a win win! Anyway, here is one said project, homemade dog treats! A friend sent me the recipe and it couldn’t be easier, just mix, roll, cut and bake! I used some pie crust cutters I got for my birthday and they were the perfect size for little Tula. One word of advice thougth, you can really taste the baking powder so when I do this next time I’m going to try to use less and see how they work out.

Also, I had to postpone the last Friday’s surprise, fingers crossed for this week!

New Camera!

Twig & Thistle got a new camera! We spent the better part of the weekend taking photos of Tula in the back yard and here are a few of my favorites.





Puppy in a Raincoat!

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

I swear I never, EVER in a million years thought that I would buy my pup clothes, let alone a yellow rain slicker! But something happened to me… her big lovable eyes and her darling personality made me a big softy and spoiler. I have never been so in love with a pet and I have to keep myself from buying her a new toy whenever I happen to be out. My husband surprised me for my birthday and gave me / Tula this sweet little rain slicker from J. Crew. I’d secretly been lusting after it for some time but could never bring myself to actually purchase. Thankfully he was paying attention and surprised me! So here she is ladies and gents, miss Tula in her very own yellow raincoat!

Photographing a puppy turned out to be quite the feat so I included a few out-takes of our “photoshoot”.

Doggie Style

Friday, January 16th, 2009

I’ve been on the lookout for a good rain slicker for our puppy Tula and came across Rufhaus. They have the absolute cutest dog clothes that I have ever seen, I’m particularly fond of the the Holmes (pictured) from their Brit Collection. They pay such close attention to detail and really everything they make looks top notch. That quality comes at a price though they start around $150 and can go north of $1000 per piece – that’s a lot of bones.
