Mondays Suck Animals Don't!

Yup, it's Monday again.....and after a nice warm-for-the-season weekend, it's back to being cold.
Today we're looking at another Maverick, only this time he's a handsome horse! He belongs to my best friend, Tanya. After his racing days were over, Tanya took him to give him a well deserved rest! He now spends his days hangin' in a field lovin' life! Tanya's son, Ethan, likes to help out with is care, we're not sure how much help he is, but he likes it none-the-less!

Make sure to send me a picture of your pet and I'll post it on Mondays! keep them coming!

For all the dog lovers!

I wanted to share this article from the Toronto Star with everyone. It's about a woman (Andrea Fitzpatrick) who was laid off from her executive job at Bell Canada and how her dog helped her to change her life and see what she was really meant to be doing. She is now a self taught photojournalist and an excellent one at that. Andrea writes 2 blogs Finding Sirius and The Charlie Project which almost always makes me cry. Anyway, if you're a dog lover you much check out the blogs, I'm obsessed with them and check them daily!
Marty approves!

Mondays suck Animals Don't!!

Happy Monday - with Monday comes fun animal post!

Today we're looking at Kodie. Kodie has a special place in my heart, we took a road trip together a few years back when his momma was living in Hoboken, New Jersey to re-unite the two. His momma, my friend Stephanie, was an intern at a hospital in New York City and couldn't bring him for the initial move, so another friend and I drove him out there a little while later. You couldn't have asked for a better road trip pal. He even charmed the border police. We attached all his little toys and treats to his halter like a little hobo, it was adorable. Kodie is now resting in peace, but we still love him and think of him often. He was a happy, fun dog and we miss him. Love you Kodie!

Mamma's Don't Let Your Babies...

...Grow Up to be Cowboys...
I'm going through a cowboy stage right now.....oh who am I kidding, I love everything cowboy...always have. So I thought I'd show you some cowboy inspired Etsy items I'm lovin' right now.
Check out this sweet upcycled cowboy boot purse! Great way to re-use items and keep them out of the landfills! It's from PurseinBoots - awesome shop name too!

and how cute are these crochet cowboy booties from TwentySecondStreet! I love them! I need a baby to buy them for!

well, you can't have a cowboy collection without a cowgirl pin up and this necklace from NostalGems kicks major pin up girl ass. LOVE it!

Mondays suck!

I have been a bad blogger, I had such a brutal week and weekend that I just didn't have time to post! my apologies!
So in honour of Mondays sucking, I am starting a "Mondays Suck, Animals Don't" feature! Every Monday I'll feature an adorable animal, you can submit your pictures to me, and I'll feature them.
I'll start with my dog Marty.

This was taken 2 years ago when I came home from work and found him in this condition. He had decided to get a snack from the garbage can and got his head stuck in the lid. I can't tell you how hard I was laughing. As you can see he was quite embarrassed....

So send me a picture or two of your favorite pet (or any animal really) and give me a little history on them and I'll feature on them on Monday's Suck, Animals Don't.
thankfully Monday is almost over :)

For the love of all things handmade...

For those of you who haven't yet heard of the documentary called Handmade Nation, it's a movie you should see. Especially if you love handmade and love to promote locally handmade items. It's a documentary that follows artists, crafters and designers across the US, showing how they do their work, when and if they quit their day jobs and how they feel about the handmade movement. You get an inside peek at what they do, how they do it, what they gave up to do it and the passion that goes in to their work!

This from their webpage…
*"Handmade Nation documents a movement of artists, crafters, and designers that recognize a marriage between historical techniques, punk, and DIY (do it yourself) ethos while being influenced by traditional handiwork, modern aesthetics, politics, feminism and art. Fueled by the common thread of creating, Handmade Nation explores a burgeoning art community that is based on creativity, determination, and networking”.*
It's truly an inspiring documentary, it'll make you want to find the inner artist in you! I recommend it to anyone with even a tiny desire to create things and also to those who love to buy creative, handmade things.
