Jakey Settles In

Jake the dog is settling into our new place quite well. He has claimed his own special space. (Please ignore the boxes in these pics. We are still in the process of sorting through things!)

Remember my July 4th project from last summer? In the pic below, I had covered the cushion in a pink and yellow toile and the footrest in a pink knit throw. For the new place, I covered the seat cushion with my blue and white Goodwill bedspread, and put the dark red pillows from an old couch on the back, along with a light blue checkered pillow that I found packed away in the garage. A matching throw covers the footrest.

I also added a small pillow that was a $1 bargain from a garage sale last year. It says "Berry Sweet" and "Berry Good." Don't you believe it for a minute!

Here he is totally sacked out. It must be from all the walks I have been taking him on.

He likes to sleep on the couch too.

So does my son.

Jakey is so creative that he has even found his own drinking fountain!

Yes, I think the dog is happy here in his new home!

So are we!

I just found your blog a couple of days ago. I really like how you are busy making your new home cozy, instead of spending all your time crying over the home you've lost. I'm sure it's hard, but I like your attitude! I'm sure your children are very proud of you.
