A brief update: What every home needs.

25 Aug

What every home needs is a dog.

Unless you’re allergic.

Then you should probably just get some nice pillows.

Meet Patsy Cline and June Carter, the cutest puppies to walk planet earth. They moved in and as best I can tell they think they are human beings. My sister and I are mildly obsessed as evidenced by our instagram feeds. Take a look:

My friend Lucy (Julie’s daughter) is Patsy Cline’s biggest fan. I have never seen anything cuter than her dressing up in her sweet polka-dot dress, a little scarf and red cowboy boots to come meet Patsy Cline on the day she and June Carter moved in. Lucy brought over homemade dog treats to meet the girls. When Julie posts about it on her food blog I will have to link to it for you all. So stinking cute.

As  for Patsy Cline and June Carter, I believe they’ve adjusted nicely. I think I’ll keep ’em.

They are fairly chill (except for when they’re not and then they act like maniacs running loops around the house like puppies do). They like their crate and sit still for you to blow dry their hair after a bath in the farm sink. They haven’t chewed up my couch yet. Yeah, I think I’ll keep ’em.

Get a puppy. I dare you.

I Heart Salvage. Really, I do.

Heather Roth is my hero. I discovered her work a week or two ago and haven’t stopped thinking about it since. Salvage Design Company is her extraordinary attempt at saving overlooked and discarded remnants, transforming them into unique pieces for the home. Well, it’s more than an attempt. It’s an all-out success. Just look at her work.

I think every space needs one conversation piece. Whether furniture or art, there should be an anchor that sets the tone and declares the personality of a room. What I love about her work is the personality it adds to a space. Can you get over how cool this headboard is? I can’t. I love it. Hats off, Heather Roth! Check out all of her work at Salvage Design Company.
