Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Art That Rocks Lovers!  Grandma and I have started a new adventure and it is all about Rocks!!! Yes, you heard me right, Rocks…

If you recall I posted about the rock art we were doing in the Ladies Room.  Well, we have been collecting more rocks for more projects…

This is just a fraction of our efforts…


We bought that nifty little drawer thing yesterday.  The Mayor was with us on our last rock hunting treasure trip and she likes watching us organize…


I just had to share our latest Art That Rocks project.  It is called…

Rock Solid Love…


More loving Love later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB collecting rainbow rocks…)


Early Morning Misty Summer Air…

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Early Morning Misty Summer Air Lovers.  Yesterday morning kinda reminded me of our late Emma (Early Morning Misty Air).  There was a kind of a freak coolness to the air and a mist.  I went out front, it was about 6:15ish.  I was looking around to see if the deer got to my flowers again.


They appeared pretty good.  I put out more deer scram out the night before.

Look close, the Mayor is in the Ladies Room!


It was such a great morning!

Really great for a morning nap!


More loving misty air in the morning later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB in rainbow mist;)

I so want this. ADORABLE!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and I want this lovers…Isn’t this the cutest thing ever???


I googled this item and found it.  WOW!!!  It costs 180.00!  Oh well, not in my price range for sure!

More wishing it was later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB thinking it should be a rainbow topiary!)

Share time in bassethoundtown!

Howllow Fellow Basset Hound and art work lovers.  I thought I would share this rare and amazing drawing by Evelyn Leavens.  This was a test run for her book, Boswell’s Life of Boswell.  This was not selected by the publisher for the book.  Evelyn sold this original to me many, many years ago and I cherish it.  I also own the copyright!

It’s crazy howl people think everything on the internet is free.  I see it all the time.  Recently, I saw a basset hound rescue use a piece of art on a coffee mug.  I was floored that the artist would allow them to do that and I contacted the rescue and they told me they had no idea where the art work came from they just took it from the internet.  People have to be really careful because the owner of the work can sue.  I informed the rescue who the artist was and I suggested they contact her for permission so they did not get in trouble.  She graciously allowed them to use the design for that set number of mugs and then they would have to pay her in the future.

I donate art work and items all the time to rescues and most artists are willing to do the same but you have the ask.

Here is the picture that the publisher picked to use in the Boswell Book.

I am not sure who owns the copyright to Evelyn’s published images anymore.  The rights have changed hands over the decades.  That is why I never wanted a publishing company to buy the rights to the Lily book.  I want to own my art forever.  I want to be in control of my hard work!

As in this bath scene from the famous Lily Book!  LOL!

I love this image that hangs in my bathroom in poster size.  It also sells as a blank greeting card.  It has been donated on several occasions for basset hound rescue bath days.  It is up to me what I do with it because it is mine and I like it like that!

More keeping my art protected later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB loving that rainbow image;)


Just because…

Howllo fellow basset hound and share time lovers…Many of you have seen my luscious backyard which I adore!  The main reason I adore it is that my Dad designed it.  I get to enjoy him though it…

OK, look real close near the top of this picture.  Can you see the electric wires?  Well, Grandma and I call that I75 for the squirrels.  They run across those wires all day long.  Many of them carry large nuts or whatever they are trying to bury for the winter!


So, the other day I noticed a pink flower up by the evergreen to the left.  That tree used to be in one of the barrels but I moved it up on the second tier.  I adore it and baby it like crazy…


So, Grandma and I think that one of the squirrels on I75 was carrying a lily bulb and dropped it.  Now we have this!


Grandma took this picture after we watered the area.  OMDog you can see the water drops and the sun is hitting it from the back!  She should win an award!!! STUNNING…

Romeo was over for a few days.  Him and the Mayor were basking in the AC comfort of bassethoundtown.


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder…

More loving the beholders later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB napping in a field of rainbow Lilys…, mostly pink…)
