Hello Dear Friends!

Final Move in
Well we did it. The Italian and I have finally settled into the new Cottage hideaway. We moved over Thanksgiving weekend. We found an amazing new location close to the new gay hamlet of Columbia City. We now have a full house to ourselves. The house also includes a garage, basement, small studio space and a huge yard for garden parties. It’s very cute. The move has made the holiday months even more hurried but it has been well worth it to find a place that we can actually feel comfortable in calling home.
Our dear little dog Elli started walking funny a few weeks ago and we have been fearing it might be the beginning to the end. She has been such a wonderful spirit to live with and love. I wanted to give her a little shout out of thanks and love and good energy. To you little Elli, thanks for all the snuggles and love. Thank you for everything you are.
Here is one of my favorite pictures of her in some of my vintage jewelry we found one weekend away.
One of my favorite Christmas shows was in 2009 when Peaches Christ joined us for Bacon Strip that weekend. Here is the Youtube link to the video of the song we did together. Peaches was a great sport in doing such a cheesy number with me. It really was her gift to me.
See you all in 2012
