Pugs in New Spaces...

I added my new senior pug as a pop-up in my altered book. I tried to show how the two pugs pop off the page when you open the book.


I love how his face looks so wise and gentle. He really reminds me of Emmitt.
Now I have a story is too funny and made me laugh. Sometimes I think I overlook things that are right in front of me. It is a good example of how sometimes I look outside for things that I already have and maybe do not fully appreciate.

I have been searching on Etsy for awhile for the perfect switchplate for my front hall. I wanted it to have a furniture element in it, and to match the style of art I have hanging on that wall.
Here is my Black Pug Double Switchplate. I have been selling this product in single and double plates for years, and just realized... It is just what I have been searching for!

I just treated myself to one and I love it. I crack myself up sometimes.

Great switchplate! And I love the painting next to it too...where did you get that, missy?

Old man puggie looks so good in the book next to Emmitt...and yes...he does remind me of Emmitt too. All sweet and grey.

The switch plate story is fun and a nice reminder that our "product" is more than product ...duhh we can enjoy our artwork too ... right?
