Happy Valentine’s Day
Mom was telling us a story yesterday about Valentine Days of yore. When she was in school, the teacher would have them decorate a shoe box. Everyone would put valentines in them and on the final day the children would have a party and open the boxes. She said it was so much fun. Have a look at all these vintage valentines; these might have been what she found when she opened her box. She’s vintage; you know. ♥ ~ Lucy
Will you be my Valentine? ~ Lucy
Remember last week when Brother didn’t feel good and was having that unpleasant odor problem.
Well, yesterday when Brother had his annuals, Dad asked Dr. Pokey about that and the getting up in the middle of the night for the bathroom. She gave Brother an internal parasite test. She didn’t find any parasites now but his bowels were not as firm as they should be so she gave him a med called metronidazole to help with that. I’m happy to report that we all slept through the night and this morning we were in sync: eat, out, vitamin, treat, back to sleep.
I had “Mom time” and played with my latex toys; I loved it. Dad told Mom it must have been Scottie day at the dogtor because there were 4 other Scotties plus a Westie there. Brother entertained everyone by doing all his tricks. However he did bark at Blackie the Cat when it stuck its paw out of the cage and swatted at Dad. Wish I would have seen that cat. Hopefully we are back to normal. ~ Lucy
Yesterday we received a package full of Valentine surprises from our friends in Downers Grove, Illinois, Mary Bower, Piper and Skye. Thanks, guys! We love them.
Hooman Sis also sent Mom a beautiful bouquet of flowers. You know how Mom loves flowers. We like them too. It was a very good day. ~ Indy and Lucy
Yes, we barked too soon when we said Mom was finished with her projects. While looking for something in the basement, she discovered this estate sale shelf her cousin had given her.
Mom said it needs a new purpose and we said she needs to change the calendar month. BOL
The little drawer that flips down is cute too or does it go like this?
This way the drawer lifts up. Maybe the drawer is the top and not the bottom. It’s going to be fun. What do you think? Which way should it hang? ~ Indy and Lucy
The shelving unit above Mom’s desk is finished. It is perfect when floor space is limited and storage is desperately needed. Mom likes the view of it too. Did you notice that she painted a couple of the undersides? Actually, she had Dad decoupage the material one. The projects are finished for the winter except for a couple of things that need to go to the framers but they don’t go in here. Anyway, welcome to the Scottie office, it’s a playful place. ~ Indy and Lucy
Remember the two picture frames?
They have now been repurposed. Mom has been in need of some kind of magnetic board for her favorite Scottie magnets. All it took was a picture frame, the back off an old microwave cut down and some paint.
The larger frame was required to house Mom’s collection of “Macs”.
Boyd glass factory in Cambridge, Ohio featured the Mac as the fourth in their Scottie series. The series began with a special called the ‘Hokey Pokey’ in Oct. 2005 and the rest following till 2011. The prototype for the Scottie was rejected by 3 Scottie collectors (Karen Campbell, Lesley Connor, and the editor of the then Scottie Sampler, Sydney B).
(Middle is rejected prototype) The image was revised and the current one was approved as a ‘typical Scottie’ as we are sure you will agree. (Lesley, feel free to correct or add anything and thanks for providing this information) Mom tried putting a glaze on the frame but she didn’t like it and repainted. She is thinking about adding a mirrored back but that is a project for another day. For now, it makes a perfect display case for these little Macs. ~ Indy and Lucy
This has been a week for Photo Lab; that’s the app mom has been using. We think our two favorites were the photobomb and the magazine.
The Valentines were pretty cool though.
The heart collages were neat too. Our friend made a globe one of Scotties that said “Scotties Around the World”. It was awesome.
The London bus on the Tower bridge was a favorite of Mom’s.
She also liked the snow globes a lot.
There were also electronic billboards on Broadway and in Tokyo. We did like being up in lights. BOL. Hope you enjoyed. ~ Indy and Lucy
I guess this is the only way we are going to see some snow. More photo app fun with Mom, be patient with her. ~ Indy and Lucy
