Last week I was browsing through Pet Finder, just looking, not expecting to find a puppy, fall in love with her and bring her home. We have 2 dogs, so the thought of adding another didn't excite my husband. Once we went to the shelter to meet her, he was all for it though! My kids love having a new puppy in the house and surprisingly my other dogs get along really well with her too. I was worried about how Princess my oldest dog would react to Sasha. Princess is not the friendliest dog. She loves us, but does not do well around strangers. After a few days together they have become fast friends. Bella our middle dog is the sweetest! Most people are intimidated because of her size, but she is gentle and very calm. I love watching her and Sasha play.
When we adopted Sasha, we were told that she wasn't fully house trained, but that she was learning well. I prepared myself to clean up accidents here and there, but to my surprise she hasn't had any(knock on wood!). I let her out at the same time as Princess and Bella. Having them all on the same potty schedule helps out a lot.
The first night we bought Sasha home was
Who could resist that face?! We were told she is mixed with Rottweiler, Doberman and Boxer. In other words, she's gonna be big!
Princess- our Jack Russel mix as a puppy
Many years ago, I used to volunteer at an animal shelter. One day while I was working in the kennel(shoveling poo), I noticed Princess.
She turned 7 this month. If the front door is open for too long Princess will seize the opportunity and run out. She hates being bathed and having her nails clipped, but she is very alert. She cries whenever my husband leaves the house and starts wagging her tail as he's pulling in the drive way. My husband taught her how to dance. They have a special bond.
My Bella-Bella will be 4 in September. We adopted her from Paws of Atlanta, 3 months after we moved into our house. She loves to catch treats in her mouth. She is the sweetest dog I ever owned.
She hates cats though and goes crazy if she sees a cat while she's outside.
She once broke off her leash and chased a cat up a tree. Poor cat. I felt really bad.

Today I'm joining The Nester for a plant party! Here's a look at the plants around my house.
Plants and flowers inexpensively brighten up any room. I have plants in, just about, every room in the house. I love the texture and color they add to the rooms.
A plant on a barstool
Plants in a wooden basket
In the kitchen
In the bathroom
On the entry table
In the laundry room
In my bedroom
In the family room
In my daughter's room
In the dining room
Upstairs in the hallway
Faux plants in the linen closet
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my tour!

Jones Design Company. Once you cut out your shapes they do not need to be perfect. As the fabric edges melt and curl, they will take on their own shape.
To protect my hands, I held the fabric over the flame using my tweezers.
Emily for inspiring me!
