DAY 5 DOG-A-DAY MEET “OLLIE”

I LOVE ALL OF YOUR DOGS!

Thank you so much for sharing them with me….

I am super excited to introduce you to

“OLLIE”

HIs Mamma says – “Ollie  is half Shiba Inu (which really shows in his independent, curious, training-
resistant, but cuddly
personality) and half Cocker Spaniel.  He is SO MUCH trouble, but he is also very endearing and
loyal to us.  He lies at my feet on the couch every night while I read, and he thinks he runs the
universe.”
Ollie sounds like my kind of dog!!!!!
STAY TUNED
THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS TODAY. I have gotten dozens upon dozens of entires!
Have a Great day!

DAY 4 – DOG-A-DAY MEET “SCARLETT”

SHHHH….SHE’S SLEEPING

MEET “BLACK LAB SLEEPING”

SCARLETT

 This beautiful Black Lab, is named for her Southern Roots. She was adopted 6 years ago at a shelter in Georgia. I was mesmerized by this photo … and loved painting her sleeping. There is just something so yummy about a snuggled up dog, they make sleep look so very enticing.

Enjoy your Saturday!! and see you tomorrow. You got me coming to you every day this month!!!

DAY 3 – DOG-A-DAY MEET “THE LIL CAVALIER”

TGIF – Lots happening today on the blog!

I AM EXCITED TO INTRODUCE YOU TO

“LIL CAVALIER”

LIL CAVALIER ON THE MANTLE

I AM A HUGE FAN OF CAVALIER KING CHARLES SPANIELS!!!!

“LIL CAVALIER”


One of my favorite things about Cavalier King Charles Spaniels is that they NEVER stop looking like cute puppies!!!!! BREED LIST

Everyone I know that has a Cavalier swears they are the BEST DOGS!!!!

HERE ARE 5 FACTS I LEARNED ABOUT CAVALIER KING CHARLES SPANIELS

1.They are very good with kids.

2. They have beautiful super soft fur…that sheds…brushing regularly helps! There are 4 colors: Black & Tan, Black & White, Blenheim and Ruby .

CAVALIERS OF PUGET SOUND

3. Very Easy to train.

4. The Breed originates in Great Britain. So they bark with an English accent ! lol!

5. They make great Apartment dogs!

CAVALIER PUPPIES!!!!!
BREED LIST

Do you have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel??? I love the name! It sounds so regal. This could be a coincidence but I notice that often people who have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel  have TWO of them…they seem to do well with a friend!

I have having such a great time painting a DOG-A-Day

If you would like your pet painted in the D0G-A-DAY PAINTING CHALLENGE – email your photos to info@leslidevito.com.  You may submit photos for consideration Through SUNDAY. 

Remember the paintings are available for purchase on a  first come first serve basis. Owners of dogs submitted will be notified prior to their painting being listed. It is my hope that those submitting intend to purchase their painting…as dozens have applied, but all paintings are available to the public and are not considered custom work.

MASTER BATHROOM EVOLUTION

LAST FRIDAY WE took  A LITTLE TRIP back in time and looked at the

KIDS BATHROOM EVOLUTION

BEFORE we even moved into our house, one of the 4 upstairs rooms, the ONLY  full bathroom – was renovated to be TWO BATHROOMS (kids and Master)  and the Master walk-in Master closet.

BEFORE – MASTER BATHROOM

It was the largest bathroom we had ever had as a family and while it was not “state of the ART” it was all brand new and wonderful for us.

LARGE SCALE ART LOVE

LUCY WILLIAMS INTERIOR DESIGN

LARGE SCALE ART

It is a bit self exclamatory . LARGE. SCALE. ART.

ART brings soul to a home. ADD it to any room and make a statement…

and ADD Large Scale ART and make  a HUGE statement. In addition, to the wonders of BIG ART, large scale art can bring color and life to any room. It is a great solution for renters and students who have limited ability to change wall colors..It can be had on any budget…big or small…the only thing between you and some large scale art might be a little imagination!

in GENERAL…IN MY BOOK – IF YOU HAVE THE SPACE – IT IS A WIN WIN

LETS TAKE A LOOK AT SOME ROOMS THAT HAVE BEEN TRANSFORMED

WITH BIG ART!!!

VICTORIA HAGAN – i love this DOG!!!

THE KIDS BATHROOM EVOLUTION

OUR HOUSE IS  A TYPICAL  “FOUR OVER FOUR” FARMHOUSE.

FOUR ROOMS – OVER FOUR ROOMS, EACH THE IDENTICAL SIZE.

One of the 4 upstairs rooms was the ONLY  full bathroom – which means that the only bathroom in the house measured 18′ x 18′. Before we moved in , that room was renovated to be TWO BATHROOMS and a walk-in Master closet.

We kept the clawfoot tub, original to the house, and designed the kids bathroom around it. It was FANTASTIC for bath time We added a shower fixture…and that worked great.

KIDS BATHROOM – BEFORE(THIS WAS ACTUALLY OUR FIRST “AFTER” – I LOVED THIS ROOM – WHERE ALL THE BABY BATHS HAPPENED!) THE FRAMED QUILT PRINT WAS FROM MY VERY VERY FIRST APARTMENT IN NEW YORK CITY. FOLK ART WAS BIG IN THE 80’S AND I BOUGHT THAT PRINT OUT OF THE BACK OF COUNTRY LIVING MAGAZINE.. YOU USED TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT!!!!

THE SINK CONSOLE WAS FROM POTTERY BARN. I CAN’T REMEMBER TH WALL COLOR BUT IT WAS SUCH A GREAT BLUE. IT WAS LIKE BEING IN A POOL!!!
