With a twinkle in his eye, the jolly ol’ elf traded his red velvet and white fluff for his Southwest desert wear and he is officially headed south in his bright red sleigh.
We had the best of times these last two weeks. I’ve said it before, he is the best of the best and I am so lucky to be able to work with him. There just isn’t another one like him, anywhere.
This year we changed out our locations and it was better than perfect. We both loved being in the great outdoors and the settings felt so natural. We started our time together at a farm in NE Salem.
The backdrop was the best and fall days in the Pacific Northwest can’t possibly be any better.
Yesterday, we spent the wandering around our own greyhound gardens. A few bales of hay and we were set for a more farm-like setting in front of the barn. The gardens are close to hibernation, but they are still beautiful. We were able to have three set-ups. In front of the barn.
We opened the doors of the barn, threw in a couple of bales of hay. This spot came in quite handy during the downpours we experienced. Yes, even in schizophrenic weather, the show must go on.
And just because we could, we brought out the antique settee to the gardens.
Oh how I loved being out in the open with options. Yesterday was the best day ever.
And we finished our time together at Nature’s Pet Market Salem. And today was another awesome day.
I want to give Santa Paws a huge shout out. He is amazing and always so willing to work with me as I move here and there.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart Santa Paws. You will always hold a special corner of my heart.
And, I have a secret. I thought this would be our last year together… And then, the jolly ol’ elf and I made plans for one weekend next August. Stay tuned.
