Jack Russell Love

I’m exhausted this week – apologies for not keeping up with the usual bloggers – here’s a post from me just to show I haven’t disappeared 🙂

Whilst searching through my folder hoards of inspirational stuff I kept coming across Jack Russells: vintage JRs and my lady JR, Chester. Here are just a few of my finds.

Happy Friday! xox

About Oscar Dandelion

Hi, I'm Faith McCord, writer of the Oscar Dandelion books. I love reading, writing, watching films, looking at architecture and general design, embroidery (especially Elizabethan), spending time with my family. I used to enjoy long walks, bodybuilding, going out, however, since my injury my mobility is seriously impaired, so I'm more of a home-body now. I'm interested in meeting other indie / pro writers, so do say 'Hello' ! :)

  3. Yes, I can relate. Have had such a busy week (I haven’t had a chance to read the next part of your hotel story, but will do so this weekend!) and pretty exhausted, too. Thank goodness it is Friday. 🙂 Interesting, I inherited a bunch of decorative plates that my gradnother collected- the same paintings depicted in the victorian pictures in today’s post. Take good care.

    • I wish you a lovely weekend 🙂
      Your plates sound beautiful – I like a lot of the Victorian art, especially with animals. And, what a coincidence between your plates and my blog pictures!
      All the best
