Yes, I took the poodles in for grooming. I have to find a cheaper way. I sent for some shears. I am hoping I can do a half way decent job myself at least once in awhile. I need to keep faces and bums clear. I will try on Bodi first as she has more flat surface (read plump) The shears were over 60 dollars but with tip I spend 100 for two poodles and I have 4. So maybe, just maybe I can cut back a bit on that expense. Time will tell. They just look so cute when they are done, but really, I like them fluffy.
Here is Bella looking fluffy. I just love their faces when they are fluffy and they are just sooooo soft
Then the after shots. This is all of them, the two older ones were done last month so are a bit longer but they are all still quite tidy
As you know by now, my favourite thrift store is next to Brenda's pet parlour so one might even say I would save a great deal more by cutting back on my grooming costs.
Yes, I could not resist even though I went the other day with Edna. I was glad I did because I found some cups and saucers.
I also found teapots. I really do not have room for either any more but the plan is come Spring some will go into the garden.
You wont believe it but I found another glass jar with a lid.
And a crystal bowl. I do not need any more of those either. I just can't help it.
So you see by grooming my own dogs I might save quite a bit of money. I will be sorting stuff out as soon as I can drum up some enthusiam for a yard sale in the Spring. I must let go of some of the stuff in storage. Seems like that's the best way of making a bit without having an Etsy shop. I do want to start that sometime soon. Sigh if only I could get stuff done.
This little gem is a candle holder but it will go out to stay with Alex, on the grave for the summer. Not sure what I will do with her exactly but I think she will look nice among the flowers
Then the last thing is a little candle holder but I got it for the little crystals around the exterior.
After a good wash they all came up sparkely.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
