Friday Favorites in yellow! | Living Vintage

Mark and I have been busy working on a new building project — I will tell you about it very soon.  In the meantime, here’s a pretty yellow Friday Favorites which reflects my mood:  I’m hoping we have sunny skies this weekend.

Have a delightful weekend, everyone.

Dog Reincarnated

I have to share an update concerning what happened with the stray dog that showed up at our home last Fall, that we named Scraps.    First of all, I have to show you again what he looked like when we first met him:

A starving abandoned dog we're feeding

I’ve told y’all before that he found a new home, but I never did solve the mystery that you may have wondered about.  Our friend, Shannon, who just so happens to be the stylist who arranged our magazine shoot, was the person who adopted Scraps, paid for all of his enormous vet bills, then flew him home to Portland.

Can you imagine?!?

Anyway, we were thrilled beyond measure that Shannon fell in love with Scraps, a dog who someone abandoned like a piece of trash and who most people would have thought was beyond hope. When I think of him now, I always get a lump in my throat knowing that he has a life now that is a world apart from what he had before he entered our lives.   I’m sure he knows that he’s one incredibly lucky dog.

Here are a few photos of him that Shannon said I could share with you.   Oh, and one last thing: Shannon and her family renamed Scraps — he’s now called Eastwood.
