Of course it's his...

Chair- $10
Throw Pillow- $1.99
Dog- $110 and lots of headaches

As the subtitle of this blog says, “the LIFE of a fashionable goodwill-aholic”…and not much more can sum up my life than my dog/puppy :-), Baker Jones (he has two names, mostly for something else to yell at him when I am mad- also it makes him sound like a jazz musician- it happens and he knows his middle name well). I love him more than I probably should or is healthy, but you would too if you had a run in with him, I promise. He has that puppy dog face down to a science. It helps that he is still kind of the size of a puppy too, he never quite made it to the full grown I was expecting, but I still love him anyway, clearly.

So it is/was really no surprise to me when I brought this chair home (you may recognize it from a few posts ago) that it quicly became his. Helped in part by the fact that I immediately directed him to climb up on it and find it very comfortable. Why beat around the bush here.

You see, I have a roommate, and the very pretty off white couch (a color I stay very clear away from…and one pillow may have been flipped the week I moved in due to a clumsy glass of red wine that could just not sit still in my hand- it’s always the glass’s fault) is hers, and she doesn’t want him on it. Understandable. Black fur. White couch. Not the look she’s going for. Then I will buy a chair, (brown, a much more Jaime friendly color) and let him…tell him, to rest on it as much as he wants. Heck, at $10 that chair was cheaper than any dog bed I could buy or have bought for him anywhere.

So he has had no problem making it his own, and can be found on any given njght curled up in the center into the impossibly tiny little ball he forms when sleeping, right next to the also impossibly adorable little double sided of cuteness throw pillow I got from Goodwill sometime ago (months…years…I honestly can’t remember). It’s all a blur at this age.

Side note, I really do love this pillow, and you should make sure you can see what little of it is in this picture. If I had my chose/designing skills/money, my whole apartment would embody the spirit of this pillow. I think you get the picture. I have no idea where it originally hails from, but it came into my life at Goodwill.

Happy thrifting~

Do you have pets that you treat as children too?

    Happy, lucky dog! And, yes, of course I treat my cats as children–they would accept nothing less!
