implants for everyone

by | Thursday, April 30, 2009 |

our workspace is about 50 feet from our house while our office is inside the house, meaning that on any given day dave & i each walk back and forth at least 5-10 times, and never with less than 8 dogs following behind. actually i don’t know why i said following behind – no one follows behind – everyone likes to pretend they know exactly where we’re going and then when they realize they have no idea they stop dead so there’s always a split second where i fall,...

Things I Love: Janey Katz

by | Friday, April 24, 2009 |

janey katz. the amazing art janey creates appeals to my love of animals, my love of old cars and my belief in recycling – that’s a win-win-win situation if you ask me. she uses old truck roofs and hoods to create wonderful pieces of art that make my heart sing. dave bought me this sculpture many years ago for my birthday and to this day i don’t know where he came up with the money cause in those days we didn’t have a pot to do anything in – that’s a good man with good taste!...

the unshelling of dooley

by | Sunday, April 19, 2009 |

this is a montage of dooley settling in and coming out of his shell. he joined our family about 4 months ago and he’s quite a bit different. he’s seems to actually be enjoying his life and seems pretty unphased by the amount of dogs he’s now sharing his life with. i asked dave the other day if he was glad we got him and his answer was yes – a sure sign that the craziness associated with a new dog must be past! my favorite part of the video is the end when dooley is...

things i love...

by | Saturday, April 18, 2009 |

exploding dog. i am in love with sam brown’s illustrations – i found his website probably about a year ago and go back every week to see the new drawings. he’s completely interactive; every day he draws from titles that are emailed or tweeted to him (although i’ve never succeeded at getting one through). it took me forever to choose a print to buy but i think my choice was the correct one – it makes me happy every time i pass by it. he also was kind enough...

things i love - a new feature for fridays

by | Friday, April 10, 2009 |

if you frequent this blog then you’re probably familiar with my love for dave, my dogs and many inanimate objects. i’ve decided to start a new feature dedicated to the latter of that list. let me be clear that, while there are a lot of inanimate objects that i adore, they are still objects and in the grand scheme of things do not hold a whole lot of importance...but they sure do bring me joy, which i thought i would share with you. you might also be thinking that i’m fickle or...
