Shone + other weekend things.

Right now we have a Dogvacay guest. His name is Shone, a 4 year old maltipoo. 

Shone is incredibly sweet, smart, cuddly, playful and chill. 

He likes to sleep inbetween me and my husband on the bed at night. 

And in the afternoon, he likes to sleep on top of my yarn. 

He kind of looks like Piri's curly twin. 

I really love this Dogvacay thing we have going here. It's incredibly fun. It's hard work at times, but man it's fun. 

Over the weekend I was also able to finish up a crochet blanket I started a couple of months ago. While I still have yet to finish my sunburst granny square blanket, I want to start yet another new blanket. This can't be normal. Or is it? 

We also added a few more Christmas decorations in the house and also contemplated putting lights up outside. We have white lights inside and I would love to add color and string up a bunch around a tree right on our front lawn. We're still thinking. I hope we make a decision soon before Christmas passes us in a blink of an eye. 

What were you up to this past weekend?

I hope you also had great company, marked a triumphant end to projects started in months past and also had a bit of holiday jolly, too.

  22. For a fleeting moment, I thought I was seeing double then I realised that Piri's eyes are so warm and expressive in a very unique way.

    I love your pics Jane!

    BTW I am glad that you liked our Tomte - I imagined that you would for some reason. Here's the artist's website if you are interested :) http://tomtebod.com/

  26. Aww Piri and Shone seem like two brothers :) I would definitely join the lights outside wagon if we had a home, here in the city in our apartment is more difficult to achieve. Let us know if you finally worked it out! :) Oh! gorgeous tree and decorations (that chalk wall is perfect!) and yummy soup with shiitake
