As I mentioned in previous posts we decided to devote lots of our time this summer to some house projects. This is why I have been slackin’ on this blog 😦 So far we have gotten lots done (e.g., painted the trim of our house, shed and front door, put new numbers on our house, etc.) BUT there is lots more to do. In fact, we spent some of this weekend refacing our fireplace (phase 1 is completed – we’ll share details in future posts). We also decided it was finally time to put up some of the pictures of Chunyo in the hallway. We ordered some 8×10 photos from Mpix ($1.99 each) and bought some 11×14 frames ($6.99 each) and photo matts ($4.99) from Michaels and TADAAA!! See the final products below..
Have you used your dog’s pics as part of your decor? Anything cool you want to share..
Love this pic - you can see Chunyo's little nose running in this one. CUTE!
This is before we put them up…
Second pic in Sepia..
And here is the final view of the hallway. We decided to put one pic on each wall because the hallway is not very big. Gotta admit – I was pleased when they were up!
Final look of the hallway!
We currently have ONE plant. One lonely, old Bamboo that we picked up in New York City (gotta love Chinatown) years ago. Pathetic, I know but our Bamboo is still going strong!! Unfortunately, I know the time has finally come to have more indoor plants so I went on the hunt for some new house plants. Since Chunyo gets himself in trouble sometimes I wanted to make sure the new plants were non-toxic to dogs. I went to three places – Wal-mart, a local nursery and Home Depot – and only came out with TWO new plants. I really wanted to get a Ponytail Palm but the nursery wouldn’t sell me the one they had – it had bugs (just my luck), then the Yucca plant and the Corn Stalks I was eyeing in the store were both toxic to dogs. So after looking through the long ASPCA list on my phone, I came back home with another Bamboo and a Pleomele. SO the hunt will continue to find some more indoor plants.
Looking for suggestions! What plants do you have in your home?
THREE more days to sign up for the Cesar Canine Cuisine’s giveaway – ends Thursday!
Before I forget (again) – a BIG, BIG and very belated thank you to 2 Brown Dawgs and Just Ramblin’ Pier for our recent awards – Versatile Blogger award and Genuine Blogger award.
Check out our two new plants!
Hmm... What's this? For me?
Not sure why they got me posing next to this blue thing?
Does your dog hate to take a bath? Does he make a run for it the minute you start the water? Does he fight you all the way to the bathtub and consider the towel his enemy? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you must feel our pain. Giving Chunyo a bath is no walk in the park! Of course, some of those peanut butter treats help!
Ok, I'm Here.. Let Me Get a Drink
Let Me Get at It!
Ok.. I Give Up!
