Remember this past April when I went to Brussels and drunkenly picked out this souvenier bull terrier pillow?
Well now it has a friend, that was purchased while sober. Behold!
It’s a bichon! I grew up with a bichon (which autocorrect changes to “bitching”, I just thought you should know), rest his soul. My sisters and I still cry when we think about him. He was like our 5th sibling. He was the best dog ever. So when I saw this super cheesy bichon pillow on Joss & Main, with very similar coloring to the bull terrier pillow, I had to have it.
Here is me at an awkward 9 years old with my little buddy:
He sort of looks like a demon here, as red eye correction doesn’t work on pictures taken circa 1993, I guess.
That sweet face kills me. And we did a lot of pumpkin carving in my childhood, apparently.
But back to the pillows. Look how cute they are together:
They make me so happy, though I need a better inside billow for the bull terrier, I realize now. Hubs is less than thrilled about the new BFF pillows, but he’ll get over it.
My one gripe is that I ordered this pillow on November 9th. It arrived at my house on December 11th. I emailed Joss & Main after the first couple of weeks went by, and their response was kind of bitchy, BUT once you order one thing from them, you get free shipping for the next 30 days, so I’ve been ordering all sorts of little chotchkies from them to milk that free shipping for all it’s worth. #neverforget
As a result, I also picked up a new kitchen rug to match the one we already have under the table in our kitchen nook:
I don’t think it’s vine overload because there is an island between them so you don’t ever really see both at the same time. And NOW I realize that I rid our kitchen of vine-inspired light fixtures, only to fill it with vine-inspired rugs.
Most other chotchkies are Christmas gifts, so I’ll have to wait to exploit those here. But I love watching them all trickle in, tiny package by tiny package. Buster does not love watching them trickle in, because he is terrified of boxes.
And raccoons, we learned yesterday.
