"A Guardian Angel"

I have so many Guardian Angels, do you? I am talking about real once in this specific case. Good friends, my Guardian Angels come to you when you need them the most, you don't call them they just are there for you at the right time. Is it silly? I don't know...and I don't know what my believes are but it happened.
This week I was blessed by these ladies....
Riki my blogger dog lover friend Guardian Angel, that went through a similar experience. I read her blog all the time. What a great lady. Check out her blog
My 19 year old dog Boo passed 2 nights ago, happy life, happy dog that leaved a long life and died at home on my lap. Benny last Tuesday passed too, so..... 2 dogs in a week. Is this a test? I guess....
One of my Guardian Angels is my neighbor Yaya Ynez that stayed with Boo and I all they long and comfort us both. What a strong woman, I couldn't have done it with out her. I do dedicate the cross to her.
Another Guardian Angel is Christine that came to visit today and treated me like a Queen. We went to Wilson Creek winery and had a glass of Golden Medley. What's so important about this wine...well is a white fruity wine that I really enjoyed but more important some of the proceeds go to the local animal shelter. We had a wonderful lunch, the weather was beautiful and talk about this and that. Drove home, made a quick stop at the Salvage yard for supplies and got busy in the workshop. Christine is in love with my diamond blade saw so she cut some pieces for me and some for her. Hearts and crosses and in the mean time we worked on some bottle finials. These are the results. Love them! Quote for tonight: The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.

My Family, My Friends, My Creativity

Ciao for now


  1. Love to you sorry to hear about your Boo! I know how hard it is to loose part of your family, but was glad to hear that such a sweet friend was there to comfort you...take care and know that I am thinking of you. I absolutley love the beautiful cross you created!

  2. Beautiful Feathered friend, So sorry to hear of the loss of your other doggy .we lost 2 of our cats in the summertime a couple days apart. I feel your pain, animals are like family members your heart breaks when they pass away.Just think they are your guardian angels over your other dogs and chickens now :).I cant wait to see what red stuff you come up with for your next show :) xxoo jamie

  3. I cannot imagine losing 2 in such a short time span...remember all the good times Rita. Those happy memories will bring you happiness again. Your market will be here soon! We are coming on Saturday,,,

  4. Oh Rita! I'm so sorry. What a long life Boo lived... 19 years! I'm sure you have many, many memories to think back on to make you smile.
    Your iron finial bottle toppers are sooo creative! They look amazing.
    Thanks for visiting me today. It was a great day.
    We'll talk soon, Amber

  5. Rita Sorry to hear of Boo's passing right on the heels of loosing Benny. I know they are are doggie heaven playing and jumping :}

    hugs to you and your family.

  6. I love the quote you used at the end of your post, thank you. Yes, I believe in Guardian Angels. I don't think we know at the time they are with us, and it's not until we "look back" that it is a realization. Losing two dogs in the same week has to be unbearable. I'm a BIG animal lover and my "furry friends" mean the world to me. Maybe your little furry friends just needed to be together in heaven, you know? Thinking of you my friend.

    Take care, Sue

  7. Rita what a beautiful post! your crosses are amazing and I'm so glad to see you have been comforted :) XO Christie

  8. I'm so sorry Rita. Having lost Boo and Benny is too much. Thank goodness for the special people (angels)in our lives that help us through the hard things. I am feeling so badly for you.
    I really love your true that is! Your soldered cross is amazing. I see that you are keeping yourself busy, but I'm glad you took the break with your sweet Christie.

  9. Sweet Rita...I am so very sorry that Boo is gone now too. He and Benny are having a big ol' party together. Sweet animals that bring us so much joy, just keep their happy memories close. Your Guardian Angels are amazing! Can't wait to see you!!! Hugs to you my friend...

  10. So sorry about your sweet pups Rita...It is so hard to lose a loved one (harder when it is 2!) I love the red door! It all looks wonderful, can't wait to see it in full!
    Big hugs to you! karen....


"Sweet" it is to hear from you....
