Furry Friend

Introducing the newest and cutest addition to the family!

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit's Murphy!

He had been at the local animal shelter since June!  Poor little guy.  He was found as a stray and nobody claimed him, so we snapped him up.  They think he's between 2 and 3. 
He's super sweet and full of personality.  I'm sure there will be many many many more pics of his adventures to come!

Smug thrifter alert!

I am feeling especially smug after my trip to J&J Junk at the weekend.  I managed to pick up some real mid-century treats. 

The Jacob Zook sign was a whopping $1 (admittedly, I had to Google it as I thought it was some magical board game I had never seen before!), the Royal Haeger vase another $1, and I splashed out on the mosaic trivet for a budget breaking $1.50.

Also making it into the basket this time around were a stack of orange melamine plate mates, a pair of lucite wine bottle holders (marked at $3 each - amazingly the nice cashier lady took exception to that lofty price tag and gave me the two for $3!) and a small wooden candle holder.
I was fully prepared this time with cash (they don't take cards) and wet wipes to wipe away the inevitable layer of grime that comes from rummaging through boxes of toot for 2 hours! 
A morning well spent.

Nessy-ssary Art!

Ooft, I outdid my self with the title today!

This print is a much needed addition to the otherwise bare walls in our hallway.

You see it as soon as you walk in the front door, so it's a little "hello" to visitors and a nice reminder of home.

It's by the super talented Amy Sullivan, who has at least another 20 prints that I could easily buy tomorrow.

More pictures of our brightened hallway to follow.
