Bridget in Da' House. And my giveaway is back.

That's right. Mz. Bridget came back in yesterday for her puppy vaccination minus her splint. Remember her from about 3 weeks ago? The stray puppy that was found below a bridge that might have been thrown from the bridge?

Her owner called last week, and said the splint was getting demolished and she was much too rambunctious. So I told him to try taking the splint off, keep her confined as much as possible, and to see how it goes. The splint might have to be reapplied.

So , things are healing nicely . She has a callus formed around the right elbow, so we are going to leave the splint off. It's still a little sore, as she favors it a bit . Notice how she doesn't put weight on the elbow (see the arrow)? and in this photo, you can see that she isn't full weight bearing on it yet.

Probably will take another 2, maybe 3 weeks to finish healing.

And my giveaway is back for December. If you remember I discontinued it back in the spring when I was figuring out a different format for it. It's returning, with gift items you can give to your family and friends. A set of stone cat coasters, 3 ornaments, a notepad maybe- about a $40 value. It's my way of saying thank you for reading my blog, subscribing to my updates with my bad grammer, poor spelling, and jibberish, haha.

So leave a comment to enter. Even if you don't care about the giveaway, leave a comment anyways, as I like to hear what you are up to.

So here's the question.
What are you most looking forward to during the holidays and why? Traveling anywhere? Visiting relatives? Taking a vacation? Or are you hosting and relatives coming to visit you?
Have any family traditions you care to share? Or are you just excited like me to see food, such as cornbread dressing? I am not much for the giblet gravy, however. No thank you.

I'll let this go through Friday the 5th, and select the recipient randomly using the number generator, so I can get your package on the way, in time for the holiday.

Thanks again for reading-

Smokey, Bob and Marilyn

Remember Cujo? Here in Sept and a few weeks ago. He has a little brother. Meet Smokey. Smokey was in for his puppy vaccination, day before yesterday.

And here's Little Bob and Little Marilyn.

They were 2 little strays found on a farm yesterday, by a former client, who happened to be in town for the holidays. Since they were found on Bob and Marilyn's farm, I am calling them Little Bob and Little Marilyn. So the former client, the daughter in law, thought it was just better, and more peaceful, for everyone to not have the puppies at the house for the holidays, if you know what I mean.

So they are boarding here till tomorrow. She may take them back home with her to Savannah, to either try and find them a home, or get them to an animal rescue.

Lil' Bob, the white one, is very timid, and is plastered up against the wall as if he's choking or something, but he's not. Marilyn, the brown one is a little more outgoing.
And both are more relaxed today. They are flea free, vaccinated, with full bellies, so what's not to love about hanging out here at Club Pet for the holiday.

This was taken last night and Marilyn kept wanting to lay on top of Bob, for some reason.


Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone.

I hope everyone in the States enjoy their holiday, and if you are international, you have a nice day also.

In happy news, it looks like TarBaby has a home. She left a little bit ago, with some of her relatives, to see how she gets along with their own dog and cat. Keep those fingers crossed . . . . . .


More Holiday Ornaments, even a Pink One ;)

So I spent time over the weekend, designing, and trying to photograph the other holiday ornaments. They are hard to photograph because of the mylar covering the image. I even made a few without the mylar just to photograph.

Last year, I made a dog one, a cat one, and a poinsettia one. Those were on porcelain.
This year, I am going a little more traditional, and these are made from pocket mirrors.

One features a painting of Christmas ornaments. Another is from a painting of a lily and candlesticks. The third one you've seen- the white poinsettia.

Holiday Lace- the original is egg tempera on paper.

I tried cropping the image into a round shape, but there is some pretty detail near the edge that was cut off. So I left it rectangular in shape. This gives a place to place the title and sign the ornament.

The background looks blue on my monitor, but it really is a dark green, in real life.

Light, Lace, and a Lily.
Here's the original watercolor on paper.

and this one did get cropped into a round shape.

Signed and dated on the edge, similar to the white poinsettia one.

The last one is pink. and it's exclusive to an online site. I was asked to design a product for Lollishops is what it might sound like- pink, lacey, girley, frou-frou. And this is what I came up with- from a still life painting of roses.

Lollishops opens, btw, on Friday the 28th. Here's the link.


I'm featured on Handmade Fuzion blog.

My print, Can We Play Now, Please?, is featured as a daily pick over at Handmade Fuzion. today.



Are you playing Christmas Music Yet?

Last week was sort of slow, I guess everyone was out voting, so I've been playing with the button machine. Putting some small gift things together for an upcoming holiday market.

In the past, I have sublimated ceramic coasters, and porcelain ornaments. And I really like how they look. I wanted something that was less likely to be damaged if someone drops the item.

Lightweight, less fragile, very kid or pet friendly, and fully functional.

So I made a set of cat coasters.

the back is covered with cork to protect your furniture.

Then I made a set of Fruit Coasters.

Then I came across this painting from years ago. White Poinsettia.

So I made it into an oranament design.

It is actually a tricked out pocket mirror. The ribbon is inserted during assembly. The back is real mirror, so it will break, but it's wrapped in a tin shell, so it's a little bit protected. The mirror will bounce light around your tree, and bling it up a bit, don't ya think?

They are handsigned and dated.

I have a few more paintings that might work for these. I'll add these to the store in a few days.


And then there were 4. . . .

Well, I'll be.

Looks like Rudy

has found a home through Petfinder. She left a few minutes ago for the weekend, and a trial sleep over. Fingers crossed everyone.

in other exciting news . . . . meet Bridget.

Bridg is an 8-10 week old puppy, pit bull or pit bull mix, that was found yesterday afternoon, next to the highway is some wet (swampy?) area below a road, without much sign how she got there, according to the person who brought her in.

She could not walk on either her right front leg or right rear leg. Her front leg was swollen around her elbow, with crepitus palpable, so it's fractured. Hopefully the back one is just strained.

So today, we took radiographs of both legs, and put the front one in a spica splint for a few weeks. She's excited that it's as big as she is. She's gonna rock it though, so she says. It needs a little bedazzling and it would be perfect.


I don't need 5 cats, Peoples.

Yep, I have 5 cats. and I only wanted maybe 2.

First, there was Leon.

then came Maybelline.

then Sunshine was left on the doorstep.

don't forget about TarBaby-

and remember Rudy?

who was here before TarBaby?

I thought I had found Rudy a permanent home, but that became only temporary when the person abruptly brought her back this week. I don't think it was any fault of Rudy though. She a quiet and sweet cat.

When I asked the lady, about someone else taking Rudy, she said that she hated to send her to the pound where they put them to sleep. Which is ironic in a way, because here, everyone that walks through my door, already has a pet. They aren't looking for more, like someone who might be walking into the pound facility. The cat might have a little better chance of trying to find a home there.

With limited boarding facilities, half of the cat cages are taken, so paying clients and patients have no place to stay for the holidays. Yay!!

So I am making a one last effort to find TarBaby and Rudy a home.

So I have put them on TarBaby is there, and I think Rudy's information is still processing.
