We are hoping that the Easter Bunny will bring us some puppies. Twinks gets bigger each day, and is very restless. I've had to make a bed on the floor for her, since she can no longer jump up onto furniture.
So, I put a blanket down in my room for her to sleep on, but most of the night she paces and wants up with me. I scoop her up, but an hour later, she needs to get down again. Then, she paces some more. I was tempted to lock her out of the room so I could sleep, but I really need to keep an eye on her and be ready to help with the delivery. The most important thing about newborn Yorkies is to keep them warm. Sometimes, during delivery the mom gets busy with the newest pups and one will get pushed aside and gets lost and cold. If their body temperature drops too much, they will die. I've learned the hard way to stay with the mom constantly and be there for the babies when they come.
At least we have a pretty view while we are not sleeping at night! I saw Andrea's new ceiling fan/chandelier and asked where she got it. When I saw they were on sale for 1/2 price with free shipping, I ordered one for the bedroom. Our fan was getting old, loud, and sometimes would just quit for a day or so. (I was worried about fire hazards)
This thing is gigantic. And heavy. But glorious! I am probably going to paint the ceiling medallion to match the fan better, its glazed bronze now. I'll swipe some ivory paint over it, letting the bronze peek though.
My poor husband has deserted Twinks and I, he seems to think he needs some sleep. Sugarwing's passed on more poison kisses to me, and I have caught her latest cold. Which make me snore 50 times worse than I normally do (and normally, it ain't pretty). Plus, I'm so worn out with the limited sleep Twinkle is letting me have, that when I do zonk out for an hour or so, it is DEEP and apparently LOUD. So, Rich is sleeping on the office sofa till the puppies are safely here and my snoring is under control.
The office is in our addition, over the studio, and he jokes that my snoring is so loud, he has to go sleep in another house.
Oops, I hope any potential Silver Bella room mates didn't read that.
Today, I'll be listing some new goods in the Boutique. I've got lots of sparklies and some ornate perfume bottles.
What I have to say has nothing to do with the photos. I just wanted to let you know that my friend, Hope, (who designed my blog layout) is starting an online journaling class. We met at Silver Bella, but got to be friends at a blogger's luncheon in Virginia that Heather set up.
At the lunch, she brought one of her journals with us to have us all sign as a memento. So, I've seen her work in person, and have to tell you, its really, really good!
She has had to deal with my endless questions about various blog/online/design oddities and has been a thoughtful teacher and very helpful when I was too dense to understand something that she was patiently explaining for the 5th email.
So, I'm quite sure she'll be an excellent teacher! Check out her class, Nostalgic Musings, HERE.
There are some great classes available out there now. Mary (my Craft Day bud) is hosting another Artist Class right now, with projects I wish I had time to do... Her last one was impressive and I hear this one is too.
I'd better get busy listing all these schmancy, bejeweled baubles so I can get on with my day. We are hoping to get the pontoon out of storage and into the water today. And those pesky taxes need some attending also. urgh.
I hope you have some fun plans for Easter! I might be taking a boat ride...
