huggy bear

 Kevin was recently reunited with this toy and seems to be very happy about having it back home

portable bed

Not only did Kevin drag his bed from the dining room into the living room; he also smooshed it up into a tiny pile and then insisted on curling himself up so that his body would touch nothing but the bed.  No sleeping directly on the rug for this mutt!

handsome little guy

back from the groomer, and looking good

dirty mutt

Look at this filthy beast.  I just made an appointment to get him a haircut and a bath, thank God.  Will post a photo later of the new and improved Kev.

devil dog

This is actually an old photo -- Kevin REALLY needs a bath and haircut at the moment.  Here he is, after his last bath, looking angry at the world.  Of course, the requisite stinky pillow is in the foreground, as always.

a panting Kevin after a walk on the most beautiful day in months


This picture was taken a few weeks ago, but Kevin is doing the exact same thing today: looking out the window at all the passers-by in their short sleeves, enjoying the first day that really feels like SPRING!

They're do-ne! New dining chairs: before and after

I finished my dining chairs about a week ago, but have only now gotten around to taking pictures and posting them.  Like most of my projects, they're not perfect, but I guess they look much improved, which is good.  The staining part of the project was okay, in the end, though I'll be the first to admit that I made a couple mistakes.  Still, though, for $200, a set of 6 matching chairs that are pretty unique isn't that bad of a deal, I guess.  What's clear now is that I need a new rug in the dining room, because it's way too brown/dull in there.  Again, here they are before:

And now here they are, after!

I reupholstered the seat cushions in the same ikat fabric that I had used for the other dining chairs that I bought, refinished, and then immediately resold.  I still really love the colors and pattern.

paw print

This isn't a picture of Kevin per se, but rather his little tiny paw print that he left on a paper plate during our walk today.  That's one cute little paw.
