A New Etsy Shop!

I opened my new Etsy shop this weekend!  I'm so excited!  It's called Two Shaggy Dogs and I'm making hand stamped and soldered dog tags.  I made some tags to post last week and should be able to begin soldering this week.  So much fun!

Updated Dining!

I've been working on updating the dining room this week!

I finally found some affordable metal...French inspired...chairs on  I absolutely love them.  I can't get enough of the country / industrial look that I've been seeing in all the magazines and online!  These chairs fit in our small dining room perfectly.

 I originally wanted a nice big farm table to go with the chairs, but didn't like the nice, big price that comes with it.  Instead I decided to just paint our old table to give it a fresh look.  I also found some inexpensive wicker for each end of the table.  I love the mix of textures!  I'm so happy with the outcome!

A Dog's Life

Life, for Oliver and Gertie,  is all about how many "cookies" they can finagle in a day.  Here they are waiting for me to go to the kitchen for another cup of coffee and hoping I'll take pity on them.....again!

New Paint = A New Look

I decided to paint our lower kitchen cabinets a darker gray yesterday.  I was at Lowe's to pick up more coaster making tiles, when out of the corner of my eye I spotted the paint isle!  Everything I do seems to be spur of the moment...I drive the Mr. crazy!  I think it looks nice, though it's a bit darker than I anticipated.

I also purchased some new colorful curtains for Spring.  I needed a pop of color in my life!  This winter seems to be never ending.

Searching online this past weekend, I found some new chairs for our dining room.  I can't wait to get them.  I love an industrial / antique look.  I've been looking at Tolix chairs for quite a while and they're beyond expensive.  I loved the look, but couldn't justify spending that much money.

I was so excited to find a great knock off at and they happened to be on sale!  

This is the look that I'm going for....

Now I just need to find the perfect rustic farm table!
