THIS AND THAT





First up is this......you might not know it but I have just been a foster Mom to Cami.  I emailed Fiona [head of OES rescue] to let her know I wanted to adopt her.  It's been a little over 2 months now and I can not believe how much she has changed.

She went from crazy......


To calm.....

I actually got an email from the previous owner [Phyliss] in Florida.  I have been keeping her updated on her progress....

What wonderful news!

 Of course, I cried after reading the email. I still miss Cami terribly but I know she is in the best home I could possibly ask for her. Sherry I can't thank you enough for your patience and your great abilities to set her on a happy and normal path. 

Fiona thank you for your patience with me and your placement with Sherry. I can't thank you enough.

Aug 17 Cami will be two. She has many, many years of a happy life thanks to you both.

Please continue to keep me in the loop.
All the very best, 

Phyllis

That was all I needed to know I did the right thing:)

This face.

No more meds.  I still think about my sweet Patchy but Cami and I are getting along nicely!

In other news I am so excited to be going to NYC to help Sudi with the market up there.  This is her first time so I will let you all know our location and you can come by and say HI!

Here are a few pillows that are going....






Gah.....of course I want every stinking one of them.

I had to run by Ikea and I am always amazed at some of the things I find.


This great fabric.....

And if you were on a budget.....here is Schumacher's Hot House Flower



And Ikea's version.....

I know right?  Not a bad alternative.

I am on the hunt for a coffee bar backsplash so I took a stroll through Ann Sacks Tile....






 Boy....this is going to be a hard decision after seeing so many selections.

I am excited to see this install happen.  Office cabinets that are painted navy on the outside and a blue/green on the inside...why can't they be for me:(



 And last....this great idea.

Gold leaf edge on a glass table.  I slapped my head when I saw it.

That was my week.  Hope y'all had some awesomeness going on!

Great news about Cami! Every time you share Sudi's pillows I tell myself I'm going to take a sewing class so I can make some that are just as gorgeous. Any day now...

This made my heart so happy. I just knew I loved you! Great job with Cami - getting her calm and feeling loved.

Sarah Stewart said...

Cami looks like the sweetest! And I need every single one of those pillows!

Aww, you are such a gem, lucky Cami!! Thanks for the pillow fix! :)

Anne said...

Love all those blue/white pillows! Would you share the fabric names, please???

KATHYSUE said...

I think I could have taken almost every single pillow you showed, and I agree, Ikea has some great fabrics. Cami's little face says it all, what a lucky girl to have your in her life! Enjoy your trip to NYC!!!!

So sweet! We have a 1 1/2 yr old Golden who is absolutely wild. We got him off a website for very little money from a woman in a townhome about a year ago. He looks like a show dog but I don't think she knew what to do with his energy. I would not say he is calm now but he is much better and he is learning manners little by little. One of these days - but not too much in the future - we will get new furniture, which he totally trashed! We're nutz but happy with our beasts.

Maureen said...

So happy for you and for Cami! Congratulations!

I really think Chief calmed down at age two....yay...sort of a milestone for you.

Barbara Meyers said...

Your dog is extra lucky to be with you!

As far as the backsplash tile goes, the first one although very cool seems like a dusting nightmare. Anytime I see tile (or anything else for that matter) that has a definite edge that sticks out I see a ledge for dust (like a base board) Just a thought!

What a cute pup! I see she is sporting a summer cut like ours is. And I have throw pillow envy. I love all those patterns.

Marion Darbyshire said...

No meds! Well done - Cami looks so peaceful and content. That just makes my heart happy for you both! Of course the pillows are amazing and I wish I could see them in person. One day:)
