just unearthed this lovely little campaign from a shelter across the pond focusing on staffies (staffordshire bull terriers, but also bully breed dogs in general). agree with them on every point – but also wanted to add that staffies/bullies are a stubborn, strong-willed breed; while they do make amazing and loving family pets, they require commitment to consistent training and discipline. consider rescuing before purchasing if you’re considering adding any pet to your family!

faribault mill.

warm & toasty…

i picked up a 100% wool faribault x west elm collaboration blanket in a baby blue pattern as a wedding gift to two friends, and was convinced i needed one myself. i chose a different style, but am so pleased with it – as i’m sure my friends will be with theirs. i hadn’t heard of the nearly 150 year old minnesota-based wool mill/manufacturer before, and after looking in to them, was just as charmed by the company as the product…


my purchase…


besides blankets + throws, faribault offers scarves, hats and even coffee cup sleeves! i’ve got my eye on an american flag blanket next…

Cooper the Cat Needs a Home!

friends & followers:

one of my old Texas A&M college roomies, Ashley, needs help finding a new home for her cat, Cooper. here’s what she has to say…

Even if you know this doesn’t apply to you, please consider forwarding to anyone you think might be interested.
Basically, this sweet guy (Cooper) needs more than I can give him. An increasingly busy schedule and highly allergic boyfriend are making it hard to keep him. The details are as follows: 
  • 7 year old, 8 pound, neutered, grey & white, long-haired male with claws
  • Was an indoor/outdoor cat for a few years, but for the past year, he has lived in a one-bedroom apartment. 
  • Not sure how he would do with other cats. As a former indoor/outdoor cat, he probably encountered others in the neighborhood but has never had to be in a confined space with others.  
  • Would come with his food/water dish, litter box, toys, and scratching post, and will also be up to date on all shots.  
  • He’s very sweet but very skittish and doesn’t do well with loud noises or commotion. Would probably do best with a cat-loving single person or couple with no children. When he gets comfortable, he’s quite the talker, likes to snuggle, and makes great company.
Totally FREE to a good home! I’m really hoping there’s someone out there for him. If it’s not you, but you may know someone, PLEASE pass this along. Don’t hesitate to call with any questions or concerns – 281.814.7818. Thanks.

you can also reach her at ashley_flynn@ymail.com.

if you are or know someone looking for a kitty companion, contact her or help spread the word!




these puppies were all successfully re-homed!


re-posting for a friend:

A friend’s friend found some dumped puppies in the woods. Appear to be a hound mix, maybe even a rhodie mix. If you know anyone or you are interested please get them in contact with me and I will get you to the right people. Thanks and please repost!…Free to good home! I’m pretty sure. They’re just dumped puppies so I’m sure the guy just wants them to go to a good home.

if interested, please contact my friend at kay.finley@yahoo.com.
