White on White

puppy1

Lately I’ve been pulling the covers up over our pillows and calling the bed “made”.  With our new (old) farmhouse style frame, it just seems fitting.  Like something Ma would have done out on the prairie.

The simplicity and ease has grown on me to the point that I rather prefer it.  The extra pillows are stored away for the time being.

Our sweet Penny passed away last year, and since we couldn’t get along with only one dog in the house, we added a second long haired dachshund. 

The children named the little guy Arthur Scott Bailey after their favorite children’s author

I think he makes up for the lack of adornment on the bed.  I’ve always admired the white-on-white color scheme after all.

  5. Oh my gosh! He is super cute!!! I grew up with two Dachsunds, a male and a female. Your pics make me want another one. You're right he is the perfect accessory, and your bed looks great with the covers pulled up. Lot's of pillows would cover the headboard.

  9. Agree with you about the extra pillows. If it serves no purpose then no need for it (except maybe somedays to make it pretty when you're in the mood!). But sweet Arthur makes up for the lack of fluffy excess, so cute in his own puppy way.

  11. Hi Rie-I am new to your blog and I LOVE it. I too am a Christian mom with a design itch. :) We have a beautiful Golden Retriever who is nearly 13, and I am hopeful to one day have a dachsund because I find them hysterical. :D Thank you for all the inspiration. Come by and say hi sometime. :) Steph.

  21. I think pulling the covers over the pillows is a wonderful idea. It works so well and looks fabulous and a little unexpected since you don't see it much theses days. Love the look. Personally I keep pillow to a one maybe two accent pillows. More than that tends to make me crabby with I have to move them around, and that just isn't the point of pillows. I'm thinking tomorrow morning I may have to try your "new" way of making the bed to try it out.

    Arthur is down-right adorable. I love the photos of him in little ray of sunlight, so sweet.

  23. I think that's the sweetest dog I've ever seen! I don't think I've ever seen a "blonde" dachshund before. Even MORE adorable :)

  28. Oh my what a pretty little english cream dachshund. He is so pretty. I didn't know you had dachshunds. I do to. Four of them. I can't live without them. Nothing better in the world than a doxie puppy. I have a longhair and three shorthairs.

  33. Arthur is adorable! Hi, I just found you today, so I have plenty of catching up to do on your site. My husband and I just bought our first house at athe age of forty one. Finally! We have no human children (lol), but two potbelly pigs, a bassett hound, tortoises, snakes, rats, turtles, lizards, toads, and so on and so on.... it's a crazy house, but we would not have it any other way. I look forward to keeping up with you!

  34. The puppy is precious. We have a long haired red dachshund and her name is Penny, she looks a lot like the one always curled up on the couch. It's amazing how much they just curl up in a nest and sleep. The blondes are so pretty. Enjoy your new sweetness, he is the perfect accessory for your bed.

  37. I was hoping you could tell me exactly what kind of long haired dachshund he is? Our family has been considering and I love this little guy...particularly his colour.
    Thanks and enjoy your blog.
