I like Thursdays, # 7

I know I was lax the last few weeks but I am back and ready to participate in LeeAnna's "I Like Thursdays" series.  Seamus has had some problems due to the high level of prednisone he's on so I've had my hands full with that and other things.  Things I like:

Seamus did get a coat and he looks handsome in that:

 But he's not particularly thrilled with it.  

In the beginning of November, I did something I LOVE and went to a local estate sale.  The best part was exploring the big old Victorian home.  I got a few trinkets as well:

Books:  I just finished Springsteen's Born to Run and am now reading  Turner: The Extraordinary Life and Momentous Times of J. M. W. Turner.  Yes, I'm eclectic in my tastes.  Nothing like going from current rock and roll to mid-19th century fine art.

I've been watching "The Durrells of Corfu" on PBS and now I got my neighbor hooked on it too.  She comes over to watch it with me and it is so much more fun to be laughing with a friend these days!  Speaking of friends, I took Seamus to a friend's house to help her daughter make dog mufflers (she's also Seamus' groomer).  Seamus ended up being her model:

Wishing you all a happy week!

clapping hands, me too! The corfu show is absolutely mesmerizing. Can you believe there is only one more episode?! I'm going to miss them!

Estate sales, I love em. Especially going through the houses to see them. Seamus looks very handsome in his garb. Cole loved his fleece tshirts (jammies) and wanted to keep them on all day. Then again, who doesn't like wearing their jammies all day?

Yes, Seamus looks a tad perturbed at his new coat! He is handsome in it though. Maybe if he hears that enough, it will make him feel better about wearing it! I love the muffler! Seamus looks great in red!
I have never been to an estate sale. I see the signs around here every once in a while. Next time I see one I will have to go and check it out. That could be dangerous...I like things...;). All the goodies you got look like the type of things I would be wanting to bring home...Looks like I need an addition to my house!
I haven't seen the show either. I'll e checking that out as well.

What a handsome model Seamus is! Tell him red is his color; that might make the coat more palatable for him. ;- )

You made a couple of terrific scores at that estate sale. If I'd been there I might have had to fight you for the pitcher and the embroidery!

What a beautiful dog you have! I always love seeing standard poodles when they are out walking where I live. I love that little pitcher, too! A nice find at the estate sale!

Awwwwwwwwwww Shayme looks stylin' in his dapper coat - I hope he continues to do well on the prednisone, and that the doctors can get his medication tweaked just right. Maple syrup hugs and kisses at the ready, as needed! :)

I bet you had fun at the estate sale - I've never been to one. My favourite item is that pitcher - so sweet :) Oh! And the ABC book - the cover! So vintage cute!

What a handsome lad in plaid! I love the little cross stitch piece. Hope to see you before year's end. Karen
