Odds & Ends

February 6, 2012

1. Last week was really rough. And stressful. I'm hoping this week will be better. Please, please, please?!?
2. My Oso bear was attacked by our neighbor's Boxer. There were a few moments when I thought he was dead. He was on the other side of our fence, in our neighbor's yard, and there was nothing I could do for him, except yell. It was the scariest thing ever. Thank GOD he is O.K. and recovering.
3. Yes, my dogs are my babies.
4. I purchased two matching Mersman side tables on craigslist two weeks ago.  One will have a new home in our living room.  The other may go upstairs in our spare bedroom.  As much as I hate painting wood, I will probably paint them a high gloss white or black. I think.

5.  I think I'm just going to stick with the west elm coffee table. Once it arrives, I'll make a final decision on how I should refinish the end tables.
6. I'm working on a few sewing/crafting projects, but, unfortunately, I won't be able to share until they go out to their recipients :)

Happy Monday!  I hope you all have a wonderful, stress-free week!

I hope your week gets better. I want to learn how to sew, so I'm excited to see the craft projects in the future! :)

Oh my goodness! I'm sorry to hear about your dog that is so scary! Molly was attacked by a dog once and it really is the worst thing ever. I'm thinking about him.

I can't even imagine how horrifying that pup fight was! I'm so glad Oso is okay. I hope this week is already a better one!
