Zero

Zero

Zero’s story is a sad one. She came to the city shelter as a stray when she was a puppy, and sat in the shelter for 60 days! I cannot believe that no one would adopt this little one. Look at that face! After her time was up at the city shelter, Homeward Bound Animal Rescue in Bedford scooped her up and is currently taking care of her. She was a bit skittish after she left the shelter, but is quickly learning what it means to be a playful puppy. Zero is 12 lbs, 3 month old Manchester Terrior mix. To learn more about her, visit Petfinder.

In celebration of a fab vintage dress I bought this morning from Dear Golden Vintage, I thought I’d feature them in my next Etsy Spotlight. I was loitering around on Lauren’s blog last night (yes, her name is Lauren, too), so as a new fan I wanted to share Dear Golden with you.

Dear Golden

First things first, this is the dress I bought this morning. It’s from the 70′s and the colors are just delicious. They’re having a big summer sale right now, which I heard about via Twitter (@deargolden), so I hopped on over to their store and snatched this dress up for only $25! I follow all of my favorite vintage sellers on Twitter because they’re always announcing new additions and sales in their shop. Great way to get a heads up.

Dear Golden

Dear Golden features a wide variety of vintage treasures in the Etsy shop. From accessories to bags, blouses to dresses, you can find it all there. I think what stands out most to me is her wide variety of vintage shoes. And it’s all for really great prices, too. I’m loving this green beaded necklace that’s in her shop right now.

Dear Golden

The Dear Golden blog features a smorgasbord of vintage wonderfulness. She posts picture after picture of vintage clothing and puts it all together to create outfits, as well. So if you love vintage – wearing it, looking at it, buying it – Dear Golden’s blog and Etsy shop are a must.

Dear Golden

Enjoy!

(and don’t forget about the summer sale)

The first one was a lot of fun, so lets do it again! Join us for some Fort Worth coworking on Friday, August 7th from 10:30 am-5 pm. We’ll have free wi-fi, free coffee, and come 5:00 we’ll do the happy hour thing again because it was just plain fun. Please let me know if you have any questions, and give me a holler if you think you’ll be able to make it! For more information, click here.

Amber

I wanted to feature an older dog today, as I believe they deserve the best homes just like the adorable puppies do. It’s my goal in life to adopt an older dog and give it the best last few years possible. Thus, today’s dog is Amber, a beautiful Golden Oldie.

Amber

Amber is now in foster care because her previous family could no longer take care of her. She’s a sweet, well mannered dog that’s already potty trained, crate trained, and great around adults and other animals. She’s 9 years old and 90 lbs! A big girl, a gentle giant. Amber is with the Collin County Humane Society in McKinney, TX. To learn more about her and see a couple of more pictures, visit Petfinder.
