I'm going to say this is a Yes please!
From here. Found thanks to this site.
May I introduce: Lily.
Lily is a beautiful mixture of chihuahua and terrier, with some other breeds in there also I am sure. We adopted her from a shelter when she was about 7 weeks old. She has become the closest thing to a baby that I can imagine right now. At any chance possible she sits on my hip (like a child would) and lays her head on my shoulder while I put on makeup or cook or even if I am just standing around. She is the most perfect little companion I could ever hope for. *I do apologize. I seem to ramble when it comes to her...*
Lily also poses a decor challenge. I am always on the lookout for more pleasing accessories that fit more seamlessly into my home decor. This seems to be a trend these days as more people have indoor pets but do not want the standard plastic food bowls and dirty pet carrier-turned-bed. So I am always looking for new styles.
Oh, and yes, Lily does have a small wardrobe. I mainly stick to jackets and sweatshirts in order to keep her warm in the winter. Don't judge me too harshly ;)
Here are a few items I found online that would not only fit in decor-wise but would stand out as sleek design.
A contemporary take on the average food and water bowl. Found here.

Chipmunk: "Don't be offended. I am sorry. I'll remember next time."
Chipmunk: "There, there. Can we still be friends?"

I had not seen the movie or read the book before seeing The Color Purple so I was able to focus solely on the music and story without any preconceived notions about either. It is a very dramatic and sometimes heart-wrenching plot but the music is absolutely fabulous. It is full on gospel music and the performers take the notes and run with them. Their voices were powerful and rich and I often found myself closing my eyes just to focus on the singing.
The most recent play I saw was Mamma Mia! I thought that due to being inundated with ABBA music (as most of the world has been) I would not enjoy seeing a play based solely on their songs. But I found that I was most entertained! ABBA really did have great songs it is just that they have been overplayed so much that I had tuned them out. But put in the context of the plot and seeing it live made all the difference. The play is lively and high energy---by the end, you will most likely be dancing in your seat along with the cast.

Crisp, clean, stark...all words that describe Gemma Comas photography. She gave me permission to share her work, and how could I not? It is fabulous. Looking through her lens is surely a treat!
