Wednesday 101817

I just noticed that Jill is getting gray around her mouth. Probably is a lot more gray, but can't really tell with her coloring. She is 8 now, I was wondering when she would start to 'show' her age.






Wishing I had a better selection of colors. Also a better idea of what colors worked with what, so as you can see, some of my choices were not the best. Once a person starts, you are committed as the cards are not cheap. No tossing them in the garbage and starting over.

Feeling melancholy today. I planned on putting up some old pictures and got caught looking at pictures of Jack ...

  2. I second crafty cat corner on the cards. Hope you plan on signing them on the back, "colored by Sharon."

    What's Jill wearing on her collar that looks like an arrow and a nob? Hugs for your melancholy feelings of Jack.....

    1. They are just going to be Christmas cards for my family. Doubt they will keep.

      Jill is wearing a radio fence receiver. We bought them for the dogs so they wouldn't get hit by a car by going out on the road. Ironic isn't it?

  4. Those grey moments yank on our heart strings don't they?
    Love your cards and hope the melancholy has eased.

    Jill wears her gray well.

  6. I think the cards are beautiful and so is your doggie no matter what the age.

  7. I think your colouring is wonderful, the colours all seem to go together well. I know I couldn't do half as good as you.
    How old is Jack in dog years? Around 55 or so? Eight is still young for a well-loved healthy dog, a few dogs around my suburb look to be as old as their owners, plenty of gray hair and shambling steps for the men and the dogs.

    1. I expect she is a little over half her life, barring any unforeseen events. :-)

  8. Jill. I meant Jill. Why did I write Jack?

  9. I like the colours you chose for these pictures. Wish I knew what to do with mine now that I don't use them. It seems sinful just to throw them away.

    1. Throw what away? The colors? (a friend may have a grandchild or idea) Your pictures? Frame the best ones and display them. Have a good day! :-)

    2. The pictures themselves are safe, it's the pencils I need to dispose of. I was hoping to find them a good home rather than put them in the rubbish bin.

  10. I agree with everyone else the cards are very nice, and Jill turning gray seems to be the same way our Dixie started, a little around the mouth to begin with, now she is about as gray as me.

    1. I wasn't fishing for compliments, Jimmy. The color that the ink dries to is not necessarily the color you can see in the tube and I am not real good with complimentary colors. :/

  11. I like them! Especially the ornaments and the snow globe.

  13. I love your coloring, it truly shows your artistic side! Jill certainly is growing up! And I know what you mean about looking at photos of your boy. I've been trying to do my "tribute" to Josh, and I get lost in the pictures too. I don't think we'll ever get over missing our boys!

    1. I remember falling in love with Josh when I first 'met' you and the crew. He was one special boy. Oh, they were all special, but Josh stood out in the crowd for me. Hugs!

  14. Beautiful job coloring....Jack is younger than Dakota and I noticed about a yr ago that Dakota was showing signs of getting older, gray around the mouth and eyes. I hate seeing it.

    1. This is a picture of Jill, she was 8 this summer. Jack went over Rainbow Bridge in July.

  15. My Slim is eleven. She is turning grey. I believe bringing home Frankie has helped keep Slim younger.

    1. I don't know exactly why, but Jill is acting like an old woman since we lost Jack. She isn't all that willing to play anymore, mostly wants to sleep or pout in her corner. I think at first she was grieving, and then it became a habit. I don't know.
      You have some good looking 'pups.'

  16. Colors are attractive, I think. Aging spares none of us including our pets it seems.
