Corners of My Home - Part 1

One of my favorite blogs, A Colorful Life, written by Liz Langley, recently showed us corners of her home with her favorite treasures. I loved the posts so much, I thought I would show some of my favorite treasures too.

The first one is a pug tile I purchased on Ebay several years ago. The pug is hand painted on it.

This is my rocking chair covered with two pug dolls I made several years ago out of burlap and buttons and two pug pillows I purchased on Etsy in a store called, Handmade by Boni.

This is one of my sofas with two silk screened pillows from Pillow Pillow Pillow and a rug hooked pillow in the center that I made inspired by one of my paintings.

This is my other sofa with two crocheted pugs I made and a handcrafted pug doll from Guam that I bought on Ebay a few years ago.

I will show you more pug treasures from my family room tomorrow!

You are so lucky.....my husband would freak out if I tried to put pug stuff all over our house. I have it contained in my scrapbooking room. I love all your pug decor!

the pillows in the second picture are on my "favorite" list on Etsy! It is really a pug-folk-art-museum in there! But what an inspiring place to work - I'm very jealous.

You are just too clever, Melissa! I'm glad that Emmitt has a lot of soft, puggy spaces to snuggle into.

LOVE IT! In fact...I believe that room should be renamed "The Pug Room". I decree it so.

Oh, and you're TAGGED! You're it...!

Mom loves all your pug items, she says our house is not nearly so neat. Mom wants a close up of the pug on the round ball at the end of the couch on the table. Seen it the bottom right of the last picture.
