Introducing "Bella"

We are once again enjoying the pittar patter sound of little feet... puppy feet that is!
Bella is a Shih tzu (like Chloe), and was 12 weeks old when I got her. We traveled a couple of hours to pick her up, and she was quite car sick by the time we brought her home. Poor baby!

She has been with us for about two weeks now, and is completely house broken already. Chloe still isn't too sure about her role as "Big Sister" yet though. For now she would rather observe Bella playing rather than play with her.

Ashleigh Turned Three

Family, and friends gathered at my house on Sunday to celebrate Ashleigh's 3rd birthday.
It's hard to believe that Ashleigh is already three! Time has really flown by.

After cake, ice cream, and lots of gifts, Ashleigh had no time for a nap. She was having too much fun riding her new tricycle.

A Busy Summer

Well, it has been months since my last post. I was actually shocked when I realized just how long it had been! Time certainly flies when you are busy.

I spent the spring searching for a newer, larger home, and the summer packing everything up, and moving.
Moving is such a job... you don't realize just how much stuff you have until you have to pack it up, and move it, but moving a household AND a business is an even bigger job, and I didn't take any time off from working, just unpacked a little at a time!

I'm loving everything about our new home, and all of the extra room is great! One of my favorite rooms is my kitchen. I love the island, and built in lazy susans, and slide out shelves. My last home had an eat in kitchen, which meant I had to move a kitchen chair out of the way everytime I wanted to open the oven, and I had to move another chair when I wanted to open the dishwasher.... do you get the picture?? LOL

The grandbabies have their own room here now. I'm still in the process of decorating it for them.
They are growing so fast, I can't believe that Ashleighs 3rd birthday is right around the corner! I thought I would post a few pictures of them, but taking a picture of Ashleigh has become almost impossible! She usually runs away, or hides her face... must be something about turning three?!

I caught her off guard when she was in her car seat for this one. LOL

Braeden loves to have his picture taken, he smiles and "poses" as soon as he sees a camera, so I guess I better enjoy taking his photos while I can.

Sorry about the random order of photos, it's been so long since I posted, I forgot how uploading pictures works!
Have a wonderful week. I promise not to take so long to post the next time!!

A Trip To the Zoo

We had a gorgeous weekend here in South Carolina with temperatures in the low 80's. Strangely just the weekend before, parts of South Carolina had several inches of snow, and lows in the 20's and 30's!
This time of the year our weather is always a bit unpreditable, so we figured we would take advantage of this warm weekend and take the babies to the zoo.
I had forgotten how much "stuff" you have to bring along for an outing with two little ones! We had two strollers, two diaper bags, bottled water, bottled juice, AND it took two cars to carry all of us, and all of their stuff... since there were three adults, and two car seats in the back of one of the cars.
This was Braedens first stroller ride, and he seemed to enjoy it very much!

Ashleigh had never been to the zoo, and her absolute favorite thing right now is zoo animals. She has several books, and videos of zoo animals, and she gets so excited when she spots a picture of a giraffe, zebra, or elephant!
It appeared as though everyone had the same idea as us, since the zoo was more crowded than I ever remember it being in the past!
We had a hard time finding room to take many photos, but I did get a couple of sweet girl with her mommy, and daddy.

All Lanterns Are On Sale

This week all of my lanterns listed on my site are on sale for 20% off. This sale will run through February 7th. I thought I would share a few pictures of some of my favorites.
I love this unique cottage style garden candle lantern. This can hang from a post, or wall with its own wall bracket. I love the sweet little bird, and the delicate design!
Here is another design that hangs from its own wall bracket. This rooster wall lantern is perfect for any French country theme of decor.
The large white romantic lantern is the most popular style I sell. Many women have purchased this style for their wedding decor.

This smaller white scrollwork lantern with it's pretty cutwork design is another favorite choice for weddings. I think it fits in with any romantic style of decorating.

Here is another one of my personal favorites... this pretty lattice style tabletop lantern.

If you click on the links it will take you straight to the product description. I hope you enjoyed my preview of my favorites....

We Miss Him

It is an odd thing when JOY, and PAIN come so close together.... I was so happy when my sweet grandson was born on December 19th, then on December 24th I had to say goodbye to my sweet Chablis Mishka. He died at a very young age of four from cronic kidney failure.
Our house is too quiet now, and there is an emptiness that happens when a family member is gone... and you know they are not coming back. He was loved so much, and missed terribly.

A New Grandbaby!

My new grandbaby was born on December 19th.... just in time for Christmas. The psychic was wrong, and the ultrasound was right.... it's a BOY. My daughter had a false alarm two days earlier which had us at the hospital until 3 am. This day she woke up having contractions again, and she thought it must be another false alarm, so she kept waiting, and waiting. Finally after several phone conversations I told her to call her husband at work, and I decided to go over and see how she was doing. When I arrived I asked her how far apart the contractions were, and her reply was "I don't feel like timing them... it hurts too much" What???? Once hubby, and I started timing them we realized they were only two minutes apart, so rushed her to the hospital.
Once we arrived at the hospital they were literally running to get her to her room before the baby was born. No time for an epidural... he was ready to come! Braeden Allen was born at 4:40 pm weighing 9 lbs 4 0z, and was 21 inches long
Mother, and baby are doing great. I have been staying at my daughter and son in laws home to help out... but honestly haven't been much help at all since all of us are so sleep deprived! Ashleigh is adjusting to becoming a big sister, and really seems to be enjoying her new baby brother... except for the few times she woke up from his cries for the 2 am feeding, and couldn't go back to sleep!
Hopefully all will settle down soon, and little Braeden will sleep a bit more.

Adorable New Addition To The Family

We have an adorable new addition to the family... not the new grandbaby I am STILL waiting for, but a sweet little girl pekingese.

This sweet little puppy was an early Christmas/birthday gift my brother Ronnie received.

Is this a BOY or is this a GIRL??

In my last post I mentioned that we are expecting a new grandbaby... a boy according to the one ultrasound my daughter had. She had this ultrasound pretty early in the pregnancy, and was told it was a boy. We were very surprised since both myself, and my daughter "felt" like it was a girl, and we couldn't see any proof ourselves from the ultrasound pictures the technician gave my daughter.

We have been shopping for clothes, blankets, bibs, and wall decor for a boy, and my daughter picked out the crib set she wanted to decorate around. Everything was planned.

A few days ago while shopping in Walmart, a lady came up to my daughter and asked her if she knew the baby was a girl. Of course she told her it was a boy according to the technician who performed the ultrasound. This lady smiled, and said "They are wrong, it's a little girl, and you are going to have her soon, very soon". We thought it was a bit amusing since everyone guesses it is a girl. This lady (whom we have never seen before) told us that she wasn't "guessing", that she was a psychic, and knew it was a girl.

Well, after hearing that... and feeling like it was a girl ourselves, we tried the old "ring trick". I don't know if you've ever heard of this before, but supposedly you are supposed to dangle a wedding band from a thread in front of the expectant mothers tummy. If the baby is a girl the ring should swing back and forth ,front to back. If the baby is a boy the ring should move from side to side. According to the ring trick this baby is a girl. Now... for those of you who are laughing at this"test". It accurately predicted my three children, and every one of my friends that I tried this on.... so I have always believed it works.

Anyway, since we are now having doubts, and feeling like this might not be a baby boy afterall, the decorating of the room has been put on hold. We figure we should wait until after the baby is born to decorate.

My daughters due date is December 24th, yet the lady told her she thought it would be born on December 1st. My daughter had a doctors appointment a few days after running into this lady, and the doctor told her to expect this baby any day now, it is definately coming early! They are not planning to do any more ultrasounds, so I guess we wont know until after the baby is born whether this lady really knows what she's talking about!

Either way, we are very excited and can't wait to welcome this new little family member!

Sweet Girl Turned Two

My sweet grand daughter just turned two. On Sunday the family gathered together for her birthday party. We had quite a crowd with her Mimi, and Pop pop, Grandma, and Grandpa, nana (me), two great uncles, two aunts, three uncles, and one cousin.... and of course her mommy, and daddy. She was so excited to have everyone at her house at one time!
The Elmo, and Cookie monster cake that was made by a neighbor of my daughter, and son in law was a big hit!

We had lots of good food, and enjoyed watching Ashleigh open all of those gifts. She received so many new toys she didn't know what to play with first!
Here's the birthday girl getting a big hug from Daddy.

It really doesn't seem as though it has been two years since we were standing in the hallway looking at that tiny baby through the hospital nursery window! LOL
Now she will soon become a big sister. Her baby brother is due around Christmas. We have been having fun planning the new nursery, AND shopping for the new baby. Ashleighs room is also getting a makeover... so I will post about both rooms soon!
