We rescued Bradley from the shelter last night, and today I took him to a neurologist.
The doctor had only sad news for Bradley…
We agreed he should go to sleep and not suffer this severe hydrocephalus. (as you can see, his head is weirdly shaped due to a lot of fluids in his head/brain).
I didn’t want to let him go yet, so from the vet I took Bradley to the beach, I sat with him, played with him, and I fed him many cheeseburgers and fried chicken.
We sat there for two hours, and after that I took him to the vet’s office right on the beach, and he went to sleep forever 🙁
It was such a sad day… I cried like a baby for this little guy. Even now when I am typing these words, tears are coming to my eyes…
WINKS – weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we’ve found and things we think you’ll want to see. If you’d like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we’ll link you. So what’s in this week?
Don’t know what I love more – Sara’s song, Noah’s amazing photography or that too cute bedroom!
Hope you all have a warm and sunny weekend full of fun decor projects and more gardening. While you’re out running errands for those projects, I highly suggest you stop at your local bookstore and grab a copy of Sixx Design’s “Downtown Chic”, that I mentioned in a post late last year (or online). Jo and I recently got our hands on copies and it is SO inspirational for those of us who are renovating houses on tight budgets. The book showcases seven of Robert and Cortney Novogratz’s projects, from town houses in NYC, a country house in Massachusetts to a beach house in Brazil. I have a hard enough time going through renos in my house with 6 cats, and these guys did it with 6 kids. (!!!!) The photos are exceptional, as you may have noticed in posts we’ve published here, here and here of their work. Oh, and if you get to page 20, check out who they’ve got listed under blogs they frequent. 🙂
Mark Carl Ciolli is an interior designer from New York whose work I spotted in one of my new books “The Find”. He seems to be such a versatile designer as his portfolio is a mix of Hollywood Regency and contemporary. The first 5 photos below are from Mark’s seemingly high end and very glam 350 sq ft walk up studio apartment in Manhatten’s Lower East Side. I say seemingly because Mark is a thrifter, and many items in his apartment were huge bargains. The dove in the 5th photo was $1. The art in the third photo is a print mounted within 2 flea market frames for a total of $48. The stacking tables in the 4th photo are from Target. Being a thrifter myself, I applaud Mark’s skill at mixing vintage with valuable pieces.
