Showing off this darling dog bed seems to have given me a venue to brag a little more on Emily's past creations! So, here I go:
Once-upon-a-time, a younger Emily got inspired by the book The Velveteen Rabbit and whipped up a velveteen rabbit of her own:
Also a few years ago, Emily gave me one of her amazing Christmas gifts.
I used to say, when confronted with children's request for things that were expensive, extravagant, or outside of the realm of possibility, "You want a WHAT? Well, I want a PINK WILDEBEEST!" The implication being that neither of us was going to get our wish. So, Emily whipped up a pink wildebeest for me -- thus putting all things within the realm of possibility! She foiled me again!
Now I say, "I want a PURPLE WATER BUFFALO!" I expect I'll have one soon.
