September 26, 2012This Week In The News – A Bunch Of Pictures Of Pets, We Are On Instagram and Advice Needed For Painting A Living Room
It has been an eventful week here. First up, we have some news about a cat and some dogs!
Can you believe it? Betty Crafter and I both found stray dogs in the same month. Crazy, huh? Well, the cute new pets are:
1. This is Smeagle the Beagle, who was found by me and Tom. We were driving home from delivering Midnight the cat to Sara in AZ when we saw a filthy little dog running along the side of the highway dragging a leash. Well, we stopped to pick him up and found that not only was it an adorable beagle puppy, but he was pretty much the sweetest dog in the world. After trying to find his owners for three weeks and only getting scam emails from our Craigslist post, we decided to find this guy a new home ourselves through a local animal rescue. If you are interested, he is up on Petfinder with some adorable pictures. He is a pretty photogenic guy.
2. Strangely, Betty Crafter also picked up a stray recently, which Little Betty has named Lunchbox. Pretty much the cutest name ever. Luckily Betty has already re-homed this cute little lady with one of her friends. Way to go, Betty!
3. For those of you who are dying for an update of Midnight the cat’s move, she is doing really well with Sara and Mike in Arizona. She probably sheds more than Sara would like, but I hear that Mike is loving her goofy antics.
Well, we have finally stopped fighting the future and we are now on Instagram!

Painting vintage rhinestone jewelry, is this really a thing?

Over on the Facebook page we had a spirited discussion about what the deal was with people painting vintage jewelry and exactly how we felt about it. The consensus: BAD.
Vintage home movies made into adorable music video.
If you haven’t already seen this video, made by ModBetty for her husband’s new song, “Keep the Blue Skies”, you MUST watch it. ModBetty edited the video from home movie clips that she salvaged out of the trash!
If you haven’t checked out the pictures reader Lydia sent us of her glam home, you should totally check them out. And now that she has shared something with us, Lydia needs our help!
Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I am thinking of painting the living room walls. They are white now. I would like pink, but since I am married I have to compromise. Any suggestions? Thanks Lydia
What do you think, guys? Can you help Lydia out? Leave your suggestions for paint colors for Lydia in the comments or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Answers to Lydia’s paint dilemma will be posted next week!
