TO GIFT: pet pop art

I won’t lie to you: my life revolves around my dog. I tell myself that most single people without children who own pets are obsessed with them, but I may be more than others. I have a three and a half year old shih tzu named Teddy Roosevelt, and he is. awesome. Which is why I was psyched when I realized how many artists on Etsy are willing to do custom prints of your dog, like the pop art print below, produced by this shop.

The next gift-giving event in my future is my birthday in the fall, but you can bet this will be on the top of my wish list! The positive: I have eight months to pick my favorite photo of the pup!



TO DO: combat homesickness

I grew up in Massachusetts, and no matter how long I live in D.C., or how appreciative I am of the weather here, Boston will always be my home. And while I do love my Massachusetts-shaped cookie cutter, I’m also lusting these little reminders of home:
