~THANK YOU LAUREN AND DOLLY~

Autumn, the most wonderful time of year...
Lauren, of the blog Rugs and Pugs, recently offered her readers a giveaway...a most wonderful giveaway...and I was the lucky recipient...earlier this week a small parcel arrived in my mailbox...As I opened the package a lovely vintage bracelet emerged...I had the choice of a Dog or Cat theme bracelet or one with plain vintage buttons... I loved all three designs...how to decide?  I asked Lauren if she would surprise me...Below is the sweet bracelet that I received...vintage buttons along with two little heart charms holding tiny paw prints...
Dolly, good friend of Lauren, creates these artsy bracelets with 100% of the sales going to the Ohio Pug Rescue..I ask you, how very kind and generous is she?...
If you are familiar with Lauren's blog Rugs and Pugs you know Lauren's commitment to the Ohio Pug Rescue...she quite frequently fosters dogs... providing them with the love and security that they have not been shown...giving them a home till their forever parents come into their lives...
Thank you Lauren...and Thank you Dolly...I love this bracelet...I can even get it on my wrist without the help of Mr. Dog Trot which is a big plus!! Thank you for helping our furry friends...some with a face that only a mother could love...

You're very welcome & I'm so happy you like it. Your kind words warm my heart. Once again,I'm convinced that all of us who love animals have a deep connection and are friends in spirit, even if we haven't met. The pictures of your home and family are beautiful. Sending good thoughts your way, Dolly (blessed to be Lauren's friend!)

I was so thrilled when you won that bracelet. It looks amazing in your photos. I am so glad you are having a nice fall. I think of you often and I wonder if your trees are changing yet.
Have a lovely week.

That is a wonderful bracelet. I had my name in the hat, but wasn't lucky enough this time. I did win a fabulous pug mom spoon necklace from Lauren a couple of years ago, however. Enjoy your unique bracelet!
