(My DD Cherye made this)

Today our beloved pup, Jackson, passed away, he was only 17 months old. He was born with cancer but we only found out 2 months ago that it was already in advanced stages. The vet removed all he could but he just went downhill from there. The above photo was taken a few days ago, he was still cheerful and in no pain but suddenly on Sunday night he deteriorated and after taking him to the vet we were told there was nothing more they could do for him. We brought him home for one night to spend our last bit of time with him and to say our goodbyes. Yesterday we took him to the biggest research veterinary hospital in the country for one final opinion, and sadly we had to let him go early this morning. It has been devastating, but we were so lucky to have such a wonderful dog, even for such a short time, he will be so missed by all of us.

Going Vintage!

I can't resist a good quiz, and I saw this on my sister Bonnie's blog and decided to give it a go:

What's your color personality?

Well, I always thought my favourite colour was green or orange, but it turns out it is RED. And when I read the personality type it is me to the T, and I do have a red bedroom!
Based on your choices, you seem to lean toward the traits associated with an affinity for the color red. Your friends likely describe you as warm, passionate, and dynamic. You tend to feel emotions strongly and often wear your heart on your sleeve.A very social person, you are popular for your energy and readiness to have a good time. You're one person who's always ready to party! When it comes to relationships, work, and even how you decorate your home, you can be pretty traditional, but you're also willing to make bold moves to make a statement.Your strong opinions and competitive nature mean that you sometimes clash with others, but often your warmth and confidence save the day. If you want to introduce your signature color into your home's d├ęcor, consider a rich red for a formal dining room or as an unexpected punch of color in an entryway.

I love colour, our house interior has lots of yellows and oranges,and bright paintings. I only have wood furniture, and I have chandeliers. I don't like mod furniture at all, I love the Bohemian and Bali look, I love glitz and sparkles and glass danglies haha. I am in the process of planning a new kitchen,definitely cherry wood, and red splash backs, and a red chandelier of course! At the moment we have lime green tiles and lights(Mark chose them as he loves the mod look, we definitely are opposites!) that look like rockets, and stained glass cupboard doors on some cupboards, which I LOVE .This is the one room in our house we have not renovated, except for granite counter tops, it's an enormous kitchen so it has always been last on our list of renovations, but it's time....
