Beautiful hybrid china




I came across these beautiful hybrid china plates last week in an e-mail from Domino. “Art and design studio CTRLZAK have launched a collection of tableware where half of each piece resembles traditional Chinese porcelain and the other side features a European design.” I’m not one for hanging plates on the wall, but I can imagine a few of these dinner plates would look so cool! I love all the different patterns and colors. I wonder if this could be a DIY project?? How do you go about slicing china in half and welding it back together so perfectly?…I should probably just stick to painting furniture and making tassels :) but I love this idea. They also have tea cups, cake stands, and trays! 


The cutest Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier you’ve ever seen!



Meet our baby BING BING! He’s a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier puppy. We got him last month. “We” as in my sisters got him (not Grant and I), but he’s become our family dog :)  He is so much fun! He literally “bings” around hopping through the yard, hopping on chairs and up and down the stairs. As you can see from the first picture, we named him after Mr. Bingley in Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. If you haven’t watched the BBC 6 hour Pride & Prejudice movie, YOU SHOULD! We love it and Mr. Bingley is such a kind character in the story: loves everyone, super sweet…so fitting for Bing! :)


Bingley’s hypoallergenic so he doesn’t shed (which is awesome) and he’ll end up being around 40-45 lbs. He’s grown so much already! Since we got him last month he’s about doubled in size and gained 4lbs. What a stinkin cutie. I’m sure he’ll be making plenty appearances here on the blog. Just look at that face!!! Ahhhhhhh…BingCollage

binginShirtSorry for the Bingley overload, but I just had to!! :) :)
