Well, I was pretty much sure that I wasn't going to take a puppy last week when I was down with bronchitis and the snow was coming down a mile a minute....but then I got better and went to visit my breeder friend, Patty, and the babies on Thursday. Dumb move! Now I'm all goofy again (no comments from the peanut gallery please......)!!! You have to admit that this first picture is waaaay cute! All 10 puppies from both litters crammed together for a little nap. Funny how they stick with their litter mates even then.
Then, last night, Patty e-mails me this picture! OMG......can I resist? He's 7 weeks old here and is still such a tiny little thing at not even 2 lbs yet. Be still my heart................
On another note, my list is getting shorter for the holidays. The dining room table is cleaned off, the decorations are up, the cookies are all made, cards sent out (after decorating each envelope....see below), shopping and wrapping completed and all I have left is last minute things. I love it when I can relax with a good book right before all the hubbub and enjoy my house in it's festive glory. It makes this time of year even more special!
I got my package from my Flirts partner, Liz, yesterday. If you recall, I did the "easy" group in the Christmas swap.
She lives in Sweden and sent me a Swedish Christmas. How fun! I can't wait to try the tea....I've never had Swedish tea before! And look at those pretty coasters. Wow! How fun!
Oooppps, almost forgot to show you the envelopes. I bought Christmas cards, and decided that the envelopes looked too plain, so decorated them to somewhat match the cards. I must say, it was a bigger project than I had expected. I originally bought 36 cards, but after checking my card list, noted that I needed 24 more, so went to the store to buy more. Thankfully, I was smart enough in the beginning to make a template so all I had to do was trace each image on the envelope. I love the result though:
My sweet niece and friends are still receiving colored envelopes. Here are the latest:
I'm almost out of Christmas fun envelopes so good thing we're getting down to the wire. I think I have about 5-6 left. Hope you're smiling!
So, that's about the news. Like they say, no news is good news, huh? Stay warm my friends and enjoy the season!! Until next time................
