Hand painted figurines by The Good Machinery

Admiring Italy based The Good Machinery‘s Strange Planet series of imaginatively hand painted animal figurines – looking at the little treasures simply cheer and brighten my day.
The designs play with shapes and colors including polka dots, neon, golden, striped and my favorite, the black ombré horse with a bright neon pink muzzle… or maybe the pink horse with the golden legs?

Thomaspaul Home

I am in love with the equestrian decor from Thomaspaul! He started his brand in the 90s with neck wear accessories that soon evolved into a home collection in 2001. His company now covers all aspects of the home. The warm, unique patterns of the collection would look great in any home. I’m definitely saving a spot for them!

Muttville Senior Dog Rescue

It’s still October Adopt A Shelter Dog month! And I’ve just found another really great place to adopt. Muttville is an organization that helps senior dogs. When you think about getting a  dog, most people want a puppy. The older dogs are almost always overlooked. Muttville helps senior dogs through rescue, adoption, foster and hospice. I’ve been looking through the available dogs, and they’re so adorable, I just want to adopt them ALL!!! So this month, do what you can to help senior dogs. Donate, adopt, volunteer, or foster through Muttville!
