This year I don’t have a lot of Christmas decoration to show. With our two sweet kittens Barney and Dottie, who play with everything that hangs down, sparkles or just seems to be interesting enough to get hold of, I decided not to put up a lot and decorated only in the studio a little bit. Additionally I didn’t have a lot of time lately to prepare for Christmas. For some weeks we had been the foster parents for a sick little kitty that had been found in the street. After little Sally got adopted, we took in a street dog with her four puppies. The puppies had started to move and were in danger of getting hit or run over by cars. Since the mother had enough milk, we added three smaller ones from another litter that had been found abandoned without their mother. We’ve also been taking care of a poor dog named Luna who had been run over by a car two times. She had 17 bone fractures and had needed several surgeries. One back leg couldn’t be fixed properly and is crippled. The other back leg is heavily damaged. We are happy to see that this leg seems to improve and she uses it more and more. In the beginning she couldn’t use it at all and walked on her front legs only. It was very amazing to see how well she could hold her balance. As you can imagine our little zoo kept me quite busy and I haven’t done much more than cleaning up after the puppies, feeding and walking the dogs. Fortunately 3 of the puppies have found new homes already and Luna is supposed to be picked up on Christmas. We hope that the remaining 4 puppies will get adopted soon as well.
Here are some pictures now of my vintage white Christmas decoration. It’s a mixture of things I’ve created, vintage finds and wonderful handmade gifts and cards from several dear blogging friends.
The cute rocking horse savings box in the picture below had been a recent find at a scrap yard.
This is one of the puppies who is still available. Isn’t she a cutie?
Merry Christmas to you and
After Christmas I’ll be back with pictures of a wonderful swap I had with my dear friend Marsha at Tattered Chick a while ago.
