Ode to Kim and Stacey

After I did the post earlier this morning about the flea including Stacey and Kim here, I got inspired to do a "Where's Waldo" sweep of my house. The first time they came to the flea I went crazy and have not one regret. I love things that make me smile and their button cards do the trick every time. So, here's what I found in a 15 minute sweep. I know there are more so I'll add them when I "catch" them. These are mostly in the main rooms so I ponder them more often therefore they were easier to find.
I'm not sure whose are Stacey's and whose are Kim's...I think Kim writes the type of button on the front and Stacey does an "SB" on hers...I love them all.
As you can see, they fit in anywhere. I think sometimes folks are afraid to buy art because they don't know if they'll "do the right thing" with it. I say POPPYCOCK!!!! There is no right or wrong as long as it makes you smile, and if it does, it's bound to make others smile as well.
My latest acquisition.
Highlighting Daddy's old fishing reel on the dining room table. Now which decorating book are you going to find those words in?
I snagged this glass, embellished hanky box from Kim for a song. Bless her heart, she said she lowered the price because she was afraid every time she moved it it might get broken.
I use it as my special box for a special bird nest with pink eggs in it. It has a good home.

I'm so ashamed...

...that I have overlooked introducing my grand dog, Boh, short for Natty Boh, short for National Bohemian, the beer of Maryland.He's a mix of pit bull and Rottweiler and the sweetest thing ever.
Here he is with proud papa, Justin. He's a boy who's always loved his dogs. Dogs completely expose that golden marshmallow of a heart that Justin has. At first we were a little freaked out by the mix names but just look...and Justin is training him very well-kind but firm. He's such a pleasure to be with, both of them, really.
