This is the beast being awoken from his nap.

You can find more photos of them here.

It's been over a week now and she's still using it every single day.

This is my brother's dog, Max, and he LOVES to swim. See, he's even smiling! 

What's making you smile today?

"10 things" was a series on TDS back in 2012. I've since deleted the tag due to inactivity but seeing as stumbling upon those posts still makes me smile I thought I was way overdue for another one. Further installations will be nestled under "the little things" tags.

  1. This post definitely made me happy. My grandma's cat absolutely loves sleeping in a paper bag too :') <3

    1. That's so cute! I will never understand why kitties love paper bags so much.

  2. My dog makes me super happy. Coming home to him after work is the absolute best part of my day.

    1. I really really love coming home to my dog too! He's always so happy to see me, it feels good. :D

  3. I love these and I LOVE those snails!!! I need a selfie in front of one of those...

  4. I love the flowers for you painting! Where is that one at?

    And whoever gave you teeth magnets must be super cool... ;)

    1. Madison and W 70...something? I'm not sure exactly what street it is. Super close by my apartment though!

  5. Friendly graffiti is the best kind of graffiti! I adore the colours of the flower piece. Those shades are so dreamy. At the moment I'm smiling about being able to visit my cousin soon. I can't wait! :-)

    1. Aw, that's really sweet. I wish I had cousins I was close with, I'm so jealous of those who are. Have fun! :)

  6. Oh my gosh those rainbow snails are incredible!

    1. Aren't they!? I wish they'd stay forever.

  7. Cats sleep in the strangest little spaces. Our kitten loves the top of the fridge, and knocks off all the empty biscuit tins we store up there!

    My city has some rainbow umbrellas, cute giant bean bags to sit on and watch a big screen, and free strawberries and cream at the moment - can't keep a frown up when free strawberries are up for grabs :D

  8. I wonder what that plant is. Can you tell me it's name, please?
