Packages Mailed

I am in Viv's St. Patrick's Day Swap.  It was a quickie so we could get the swaps early.  I have very little decorations for St. Patty's Day.  I do have a son that was born on that day.  Here is what went in the mail for my person.  It is supposed to be a surprise.  I don't know if my person is a follower but we will see.  I love the little leprechaun that is sleeping and the little boy that stands.  It was hard to find things.  My person likes vintage linens.  I found this dresser scarf and it's green.  A couple of embellishments and a little bouquet of green.  I hope she likes her package.
Remember when I had the Origami Owl giveaway.  Well this is what I mailed to Viv today.  It was supposed to be a locket.  It is so much fun putting these items together for someone.  She got a locket, a long chain and three charms.  The charms are a heart shaped family charm (Viv is all about her family) a little cat (she has two Siamese kittens) and a camera (to represent her blogging).  She also is getting two dangles that are attached next to the locket.  One is a bird cage because she has a parrot.  And the other one is a blue flower.  That was just added to give some color.  I hope she is excited about her gift.  It is really hard to photo with the glass in the locket.
This is the little leprechaun that is going to my swap partner.  The one on my banner is from the same family. 
Little Izzy had her blood test today to see what is wrong with her kidneys.  It came out okay except for the high protein problem.  We are going to try her medicine that she is currently taking twice a day for a month.  If here isn' a change then we will try another med.  Her blood work was $130 and taking her blood pressure was $49.  The blood work was done in house.  Why would it be that much.  The blood pressure I did voice my concern about that cost.  They said they had to do a Doppler on her.  They left the room with her for both and she was gone about ten minutes.  I am so glad that the tests were pretty much normal but wish we knew why she has an overactive bladder and has these wetting accidents.  She can be on your lap and have an accident and you don't know it til you stand up.  Last night she wet the bed......our bed.  Luckily she was on a doubled up quilt sleeping.  I guess there is always diapers......yuck.  She is really frisky.  At the vets a couple thought she was a puppy.  There was a Mastiff that came in when we were there.  He weighed 180 lbs.  Izzy walked up to him and they sniffed each other noses.  Afterwards I stopped at the store for just some bread, coffee, diet Coke and dog food because we have a big storm coming.....again.
 Here is Izzy after a bath.  She weighs 9 lbs. and has the cutest face.  Mr. Cozy calls her Pork Chop.  She would eat non-stop if we didn't restrict her intake.
It looks like this storm is going to be a big one and a lot of states are involved.  Our area was colored in a color that the weatherman didn't even know what to call it.  Things can change.  Maybe we won't get the 10 inches of snow.  More alarming is another week of below freezing temps.
Stay warm and cozy and safe.

Izzy is so cute! I certainly know how you feel. Charlie is doing really well, but I sweated out that whole day. Judy's birthday is on St. Patrick's Day.

What wonderful things for your swap partner! St. Patrick's day is one holiday I have never decorated for. I do make corned beef & cabbage

What a cute swap gift package! I think everyone is hoping that the weatherman is wrong this time!

Take care.

Your you and your pocket book, and poor Izzy. Vets are so high. You have to be the Swap Queen, gal. If you don’t sponsor them and tell me, I never know about them. Your partner is going to be very very happy :-) I cannot find your new email address. Yes, I got my adorable little Valentine’s snowmen and they are in my window with my Valentine hearts from the swap. Took photos but they did not come out well enough to send...if I had your address. Please email me the clown one so I can write you. It has been a rough February. 2 viruses, one fall on ice, and lots of back spasms. Hope you are OK. I LOVE MY PRESENT.

I love your swaps! You have some very cute things for your partner! :)

I hope Izzy improves, she's a cutie. My guy has to have some bottom teeth removed...the pain, the cost, it's just overwhelming and I'm putting it off. He's not having problems but my vet tells me it might start to cause pain in the future. I think I should just get it over with.

We have a storm coming, too. Batten down the hatches!

What fun swap items, Debby. I absolutely LOVE that one in your header. Is that Fimo (molding clay)? There is not a lot out there for St. Patrick's Day unless you like the glittery (sometimes cheesy) things. lol
Hope they can figure out what is going on with your fur baby. Pork Chop has one of the cutest faces I have ever seen.

Have a good night, Debby. We are coming down home row with winter, I hope. It is MARCH!!! xo Diana

Kimberly said...

Oh what a sweet face she has. I know the vet appointments are so expensive. I think its more for Tucker than me. Enjoy the snow we are getting it too and we still have a lot on the ground.

Your new blog header is darling and I'm sure Viv will absolutely LOVE her charms and locket. You selected the perfect ones. Your swap partner is going to love all your sweet treasures. We have more snow falling this morning (on top of the mountains that still exist) but we aren't getting that major storm that they are predicting for you. Happy March 1st. Stay cozy.

Susie said...

Debby, Love the gifts you are giving. Those little people are so cute. Sorry to hear your doggie is sick. Hope the meds works for her. Yes , we are going to have snow also.....hopefully not as much as they are saying. Stay warm, xoxoxo,Susie

Julia said...

Izzy is adorable. It's absolutely terrible that vets care is so outrageously expensive. It's no wonder so animals are not getting the care they need. People can't afford it. Pet food also is so expensive. I hope that they figure out what is the problem with Izzy..

Snow again... poor you. Stay safe. I hope that you don't get 10 inches. that's a lot of snow.

Patti said...

Izzy is adorable! I've been thinking about getting a little dog, but it seems like vet bills go with the tiny size. You are so generous! Your swaps are wonderful! I do really like your little elves!

Poor Little Izzy!! What we do for our fur-babies!
Hope she feels better soon :)
Oh, and the leprechaun is adorable!

Hi Debby, aka Secret Leprechaun, :)

I was so excited to get your package and open all the sweet things you sent me. I LOVE it all. You know being a vintage linen nut I love the sweet runner, but I love everything. The mushroom baby is so sweet, as is the St. Patrick's day lad. I'm always excited to get crafting goodies, and the green bouquet is already in a vase.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful and generous package! I don't know how I missed following you, but am doing so now. I love meeting new friends though swaps, and this time thanks so our sweet blogging friend Vivian.
I hope your fur baby is doing better. They worry us so when they are not well.

((Hugs)), Pam
