[This Moment] See Beautiful: Toby's Tour

Hi everyone. Toby here at the keyboard. Because - 
After I came home from the doggie hotel on Tuesday, I happened to overhear the people wondering whether I preferred the hotel to home. I do love the hotel, especially during the daytime. But we all know there's no place like home. So I'll show you the most beautiful parts of my house. 

The corner of the dining room to the left is where I hang out lots. It's a great vantage point for spying and only steps away when the front-door sunpuddle appears.

The picture window has the best sun puddle though. It's not here quite this early but you can see it growing under the big chair. In an hour it will be ready to cover the floor and me!

When it's really cold this little box lights up and blows heat right over here where I curl up.

This is the magic room where all the food and treats hide. I spend lots of time here making puppy eyes. It works sometimes.

If it doesn't, I recently learned to move over here. This box holds carrots. They taste okay, better than nothing!

My spying spot is here. 

I can see all down the street and make sure the neighbors leave for work on time.

At the end of a hard day taking care of my people and keeping them out of trouble, here is where I sleep. Right beside my people, snug and cozy. BOL they do snore sometimes! My mom said she had to be careful taking this photo because she didn't make the bed yet. Why do people make so much work for themselves?
My house is a very fine dog's house. Aren't my people lucky I let them live here too? 
Have a beautiful month, keep seeing beautiful everyone! Your pal, Toby

Done With Dining Room, Dog Likes It

January's project was a dining room makeover. We finished it today (except replacing the carpet - that will probably be this summer). 

We had hideous old wallpaper that I never liked but knew we had to live with for awhile (never thought it would be 18 years though!). Little pink and blue roses. 

I made curtains that seemed fancy and cool then, but made the room dark and seemed odd now. 

 I'm excited to have an updated, bright, and modern looking dining room now!

Keeping watch for the evil UPS driver is easier for Toby now.

New grey toned paint from plaster ceiling to floor molding covers the old stained wood. And there's a new chandelier - no more brown glass!

Another view of the new drapes. Doesn't the crown molding above them look pretty now?

The dining set belonged to Ted's Pap and Grammie Shaffer. It's small, but solid walnut. These chairs have had several covers over the years but I think these might be my favorite.

I just winged it to make the tiebacks, but they came out fine.
So even though our project took more than a month, the extra time was worth it.

Great! Now you'll have time to take more walks with me! - Toby
