New Dog Owner

Until recently, I have never owned a dog. Always cats, hamsters, and guinea pigs. Chuck, on the other hand, has grown up with countless numbers of dogs while living in Japan, Germany, and here right in the States. Chuck and I have been together, bound and entwined very happily, for 4 1/2 years. SO when we decided to move in together with our two best friends, Matt and Kristen, in a small, cozy apartment in Elkins Park PA, his mom thought it was high time that she reorganized and decorated the house. That means, of course, to get rid of some of the animals who were making most of the mess while running the house! Here we encountered Dolly, recently rescued with her sister, Pepper, from a puppy mill. They were given to the Ward family after rescued by an aunt because the aunt already had two Toy Poodles for herself. Chuck's mom thought Dolly would fit in our apartment perfectly. Dolly now lives at the apartment mots of the time while her sister lives with Chuck's parents. Some people call it cruel to separate the two sisters, but it is very unhealthy that Dolly solely depends of her sister for protection and has no personality of her own. And when both Chuck and I work, instead of leaving her at the apartment alone, we drop her off with her sister for the day. Since the beginning of the month, Dolly has been improving and starting to be her own dog.

But Dolly has some quirks, although she has been much better since the beginning of the month. She is very skittish, is afraid of quick movements, is less energetic when she is separated from her sister, is very anxious when she is left alone, lacks a bit of character and personality, and has some eating problems.

Right now, Dolly and her sister have gone with my boyfriend's parents to Pittsburgh, where Chuck's cousin Erin will be grooming them. I miss Dolly around the house already, especially since she followed me everywhere. Every time I hear jingling I think its her running after me. It is kinda bad timing for her to leave because even though she goes to see her sister when we are both at work, there will be times where she will be left alone. We have been training her to use the wee wee pad when its bad weather for walks or very early/late in the day. I hope she continues to be successful with the indoor potty training.


P.S. Here's some cute pictures of Dolly's beach trip last week to Ocean City, NJ.

All Moved In!

The move has finally happened, and me and my three roommates are all settled in our cozy two bedroom apartment in Elkins Park, right next to the Elkins Park Train station. We live on the third floor above the old Elkins Park Pharmacy, right next to an antique store, Cafe, and conveinience store. The neighborhood is a warm, friendly place, and I cant wait to take my new toy poodle, Dolly, for long walks in the sunshine.

This means that yes, I will be re-opening my Etsy shop,, and selling tons of new photography and handmade scarves, hats, and knick knacks. The Reopening of my etsy shop is scheduled for Sunday. Why Sunday? Because today after a long day of work at the karate store and dojong, I am leaving with my boyfriend Chuck to venture out to Pittsburg, where new photographs will be taken, family will be met and re-met,the thrills of Kenneywood will be felt, and a terrified Lynn will go quadding in the mountains. We will return from Pittsburg on Thrusday night, and I will immeadiately start working on new photographs and pictures of some crocheted hats I have been working on.

So I'm the new mommy of a 5 year old Toy Poodle, Dolly. Dolly is a sweet, tiny thing, who loves to cuddle and nap on your lap. She follows you everywhere, and love squeeky balls. She is stay with her sister Jolene at Chuck's parents house until we completely settle in, then she moves in with us. Stay tuned for some pics of my sweet girl.

Namaste, Lynn

One Buddha Treasury

Thank you Sugar Rush Jewelry for featuring my "Chinese Temple" fine art print in her awesome treasury!

A Friend's Birthday= Lots of New Etsy Prints

For my friend's B-day today, We took the train to Philly and visited the Museum of Art. There, I found so much inspiration it has lead to THREE new items in my Etsy shop. Check them out.

Avalokiteshvara The Bodhisattva of Compassion- 8x10 Fine Art Print- One of the most popular devotional deities in Tibet, Avalokiteshvara--the Bodhisattva of Compassion--appears in many forms, but this eleven-headed, "thousand-armed" form (sometimes called Arya, meaning "honored") is perhaps the most beloved. The god's numerous appendages enable him to see and hear all supplicants' needs. The many hands (a third layer of hands originally fanned out at the back of the sculpture) indicate the countless ways in which Avalokiteshvara can assist devotees.-Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Chinese Temple- 8x10 Fine Art Print- Here stands one of the many Chinese Buddhism Deities in a Chinese Temple.

Rainbow Standing Buddha Notecards- Set of 3- 6 colorful Buddhas to light up your day. Inspired by a 2nd century Pakistani sculpture in the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
4 X 5 inches with matching envelopes. Blank on the inside.
