We had talked about adoption over the years, so when the opportunity arose to take in a sweet little one we took it.
And we're in love.
Without a doubt.
This is Taz.
He melts my heart and digs belly rubs. Pun totally intended.
He helps me clip coupons.
And he doesn't mind that I shamelessly exploit the "weiner dog thing."
Sweet little Taz inspired part of my latest crafty project.
I was in a crafting mood the other day. Glue gun in hand, I couldn't be stopped. I was like Mario with the star. . . except I wasn't pouncing on mushroom men, but on projects I had been putting off.
Remember the creepy kid picture I scooped up at a yard sale for a buck a while back? If not, reminisce with me here.

Back to the Taz.

I was inspired by this:
All of which manifested in the form of this:
FYI, all of the frames were purchased from yard sales or thrift stores. The "tree art" frame is also mentioned in the "Goodwill Hunting" post linked above.
I love this gossip bench because it belonged to my great-grandmother. The large green glass hobnail vase and the small light green dish were purchased from a thrift store. The small dark green vase was given to my grandmother when she graduated high school in the 50's. Lots of history tucked in this little nook!
