Altered State Of Tin

And my friend Patti with blog Treasure Barn opened a new shop on ETSY called Altered State of Tin ....her and I swapped....I sent her some tins and she sent me an altered tin...great deal for me. When I recieved my tin I instantly started to cry....not becasue it was ugly or bad ....but because she read me well...She knows my one big love in life is my puppies Bentley and Lucky my little pomerainans.


look at how precious this is and she sized them perfectly too... Lucky is about that much smaller than Bentley

inside and out... just charming

what she didn't know was a few days prior I had decided that after the first of the year it will be time to put my little pommie named Lucky down...he was badly abused when I got him...he is such a trooper...but arthritist, loosing site, loosing hearing and no teeth to eat properly all on top or breathing problems,.,, bless his heart he still loves life with all his heart. I have been trying to get myself ready... Spring is the hardest time of year for him ...due to allergies.. I just cannot put him threw another season.   This little tin is perfect to hold his little bitty doggie tags...Thats why it made me cry so...she had no way of knowing, but she pegged what I needed right on...


then she also added this beautiful little necklace to the bundle...a true treasure.

I sent her 10 tins to alter....so as you can see I think I got the better end of the deal....

please visit her at her ETSY Shoppe
and her  Blog

you will see what I see...some fabulous tin items
thanks Patti

Oh dear - while I was thinking "What a lovely box with DeeDee's doggies on" I was reading this very sad news about Lucky. That's quite a decision to be made... I'm very sorry to hear about that.

Hugs

The altered tin is lovely. You both certainly benefitted from this swap. But what a decision you have had to make about Lucky. I'm so sorry to hear about this. Lucky has just got the sweetest little face and I know must be a very good companion for you. We had to put our dog, Toni, down when she was 15 because her kidneys had started to fail. I will never, ever forget that moment. I still think about her to this day and that was nearly 30 years ago. Am I a sentimental old fool or what? :) Best wishes Dee Dee. Will keep you in my prayers.

I am glad you liked the tin and that it will hold memories of your baby.
Thanks for showing people my work and for promoting my shop.
Hugs to you Dee Dee
