Canine Decorating

Feng Shui (pronounced "fung shway") examines how the placement of things and objects within it affect the energy flow in your living environment, and how these objects interact with and influence your personal energy flow. Your personal energy flow affects how you think and act, which in turn affects how well you perform and succeed in your personal and professional life. Feng Shui affects you every moment of the day — whether you're aware of it or not.

Many people decorate their homes around the principals of Feng Shui, creating an ordered, peaceful environment for living.

Look how tranquil it can be.

But where I hang out - it's a little different, there's dozens of stuffed dog toys, there's chewy's and squeeky's and bones.   There's coats for walking the dog in the rain, there's parkas for walking the dog in the snow.  There's tennis shoes and snow boots. 

And there's dog hair - on the furniture, on the floor, on our clothes. There's a reason the antique mission style furniture is covered in black fabric or black leather.

There is no order of placement - things are wherever they get thrown with the "Mom - can I have a treat now".

So, I have a way of arranging my home that's similar

We call it Fleng Shu  (pronounced "flung shoe").

And it's home.
