My photo
I'm just a fan. A new fan. I'm restless, always looking for something new to see, learn and do. My lastest thing is NASCAR. It Happened when I drove a "Richard Petty Experience" car during the week of the 50th running of the Daytona 500.

My Addiction is a 10....

I was just visiting the Pioneer Woman's site and she asked this question:

On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate your love/addiction for china/dinnerware?

Well, she only gave a scale from one to ten. She didn't give me a chance to tell her; mine's 10 to the 20th power!

Below show's only one window in my dining that looks out at our pool. Do you see the plates on the wall to the right? That used to be the other window. I made my husband enclose that so I could see my plates. Believe me...he didn't want to do that! Most of the pieces are Metlox. I love california pottery.

Here's the everyday dishes, Fiestaware.

Wasn't Disappointed..the girls give it 5 paws!

OK...the girls give it 8 paws!!

This Dog bed didn't disappoint...

1) Customer Service was exceptional, shipping was same day!

2) Package Design and Instructions were well executed (this is can't be there to explain... so the packaging must be able to do it for you!)

3) I wanted a "Mattress" style - my girls do both; curling & sprawling!
4) Size options were great! I went with "Huge" 36"x45"x5". I wanted the excess room, it seems like my girls are always changing sides and sleeping positions. (good thing they don't sleep with me. However, they do nap with me and I'm always waking up hanging over the side of my King size bed!)

5) The Duvet is extremely well constructed. I'm happy that it's 100% cotton and machine washable. The material feels "canvas" like, which lets me know it will hold up to long term washing!

6) Stuff Sack is just icing on the cake; it lets me choose what goes in there! I chose pillows, that way the duvet, stuff sack and the pillows all get their turn in the washer!

So this happy Molly Mutt bed owner gives it...

Very efficient packaging...I must say!

OK...even I can read these instructions! So far, so good!
I decided to trek to Walmart, buy some pillows. I thought~ this way I can wash everything!

Called the girls over~ told them to check it out!
(notice Margo...she's in the middle, she doesn't like being THAT close to Maggie)

Hey, Hey...where are you going Margo? I know what you're doing!

Is that your tongue? Are you sticking it out at me? I notice you're trying to sneak away from your sister. ( FYI, they don't have the same father)

NOW Margo's happy! ~ Notice Maggie never moved. Psst... Margo sleeps with her eyes open.
In all seriousness, this is just an absolutely fantastic product. Ya know...these beds would be great for dog shelters!!
I'm going to be serious and write a review on this tomorrow. I am a self-proclaimed expert on pet products. I owned a mfg business of pet products for almost 20 years. I've been to several pet industry trade shows around the country, so I will get serious and review this bed.

INGENIOUS!!....Green too!!

Just bought this bed for my 2 dogs (cute dog...just not mine)...the duvet is what I got from Molly Mutt.

This is a fantastic product. I know dog beds have been around forever, but this is just a new take on it. I also purchased the "Stuff Sack" and that's the new part of the bed for me.

Molly Mutts even gives you some great ideas for the stuffing. Hmmm...what should I stuff mine with? Gotta think about that. How GREEN is this idea though!!!

I can't wait to get mine. Here's a picture of my whippet, Margo, trying to decide which bed to get in. No matter what she chooses, Maggie, the weimaraner, is always crowding her out.

I decided to get the "huge" size 36"x45"x5". One bed...two dogs! I'll update you with a photo of Margo & Maggie on their new "Molly Mutt" bed when it comes.

I told them both, "your getting a new bed, and you'll be sharing!". They both stood looking at me with their tails wagging. They understood me, right? Or...because my voice was so excited, do you think they heard, "I'm giving you a biscuit!"

This is floating around...just want to share...AMEN

An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too; so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.

The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great; but when government takes all the reward away; no one will try or want to succeed.

Could not be any simpler than that....
