Doggie 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.


  1. Yep, flung shu is here too - just imagine your flung shu times three!!! Dad drives Mom nuts as he goes around several times a day trying to put "his" style of order in place:)

  2. That looks much more homey than the feng shui stuff!

  3. BOL!!! OMD, gurl, it's the same here! Can I get a "BARK YEAH!!"?!!

  4. Make it three big dogs, one short term fostered JRTerror, and three teenager-types and you can see the chaos in my casa!

  5. We like your design sense so much more than the Better Homes & Gardens version. Love live the house with dogs. And stuffies. And toys. And....

  6. We agree...BOL! We've got enough dog energy around here to keep things humming.
