Ohh yes, its true, I have absolutely fallen head over heals in l*o*v*e* with my new little buck, Luke...........or perhaps our 100+ degree weather has baked my brain...I suppose that could be! Luke was actually born the day after I got my black doe, Meisie. His mamma had a set of twins that morning, and then that afternoon, looking into her pen, there was lil Luke in the corner, with his mummified twin a little ways away~ so mamma actually had quads! She had her two tho, and cause he came so late, she didn't want him, so Luke has been on the bottle ever since.....and you can really tell~ he thinks he is a human!
He is a Genemaster Kiko/Boer F3 buck, and will be the new Pappa around here when he grows up. He follows me everywhere, even in the house, and up on the couch~ he doesn't mind. He bleets and screams when I leave him in the pen~ it is heartbreaking! He is so easy to spoil rotten~ he loves to sit in my lap and snuggle and fall asleep....and when I say snuggle, he really does! Hes so precious and I just love him to bits!
So if you ever wonder what I do at 7 am , noon and 7 pm.....I'm feeding the family....and 8 am, 1 pm and 6 pm I'm out feeding Luke! Seems all I do lately is be making supper for something or another....all anything does around here is eat eat eat!!!! shoosh
But in between the feedings.....I am working on my dollys and already have some really spectacular Halloweenies for you this fall~
I have been working on a particular design all spring and summer, that is literally, the best, most AWESOME spectacular piece I have ever made....I should have it done in about a month I am hoping~ I cant wait for you all to see it! The above sneeky peek is from a new Showcase piece, so yes, it is illuminated with electricity....its just fabulous I have to admit!
My studio is getting crowded with everything I have going on, and I have decided to run another round of eBay specials this coming week~ I will be listing both dollys, and c1860 antique children's clothing on eBay this evening~ so DO stop by and take a peek. I am nearly finished culling out my later years clothing for the Museum, have saved some really rare Civil War era boys things for last...I hate to part with them, yet, it is needed to focus my space and attention on the earlier years. I wish I had federal funding and could have a huge 5,000 sq ft gallery and be open 24 hours a day, but alas, I am just lil ol me, with limited space that I have to make count! I hope you all are having a wonderful summer, full of love, and joy and family & friends!! I am so blessed, my cup runneth over, and I hope yours is too!
