Each morning, like clockwork, they board the subway, off to begin their daily routine amidst the hustle and bustle of the city.
When I saw this article, I knew I had to share it with you all. I am a huge animal lover, and dogs hold a special place in my heart. They are simply remarkable creatures; who act as caretakers, therapists, and all round great company. There isn’t a day that goes by when my own two dogs, Dexter and Daphne ceases to amaze me, with their humor ,and ingenuity. But this story about the wild dogs of Moscow, shows just how alike our furry friends are to us.
More After The Jump:
Remixed Vintage is an online store at Etsy.com (http://judythejazzcat.etsy.com/) Many of my items have been “upcycled,” “reclaimed” or “repurposed.” Old vintage pieces get transformed so they have new uses and new charm. If you’re a fan of Remixed Vintage, you may find beauty & value in old slightly rusted/scratched up objects. There’s a LOT of junk out there that’s taking up space in landfills or piling up in attics & garages just waiting for attention. The kicker is, there’s so much stuff being mass-produced, imported in, then eventually thrown away, that the pile keeps growing and growing every year. Upcycling or Repurposing is a small way to use what we already have around us. It’s also fun learning about the history of a vintage or antique item. Where did it come from? Who made this and when/how was it made? What was it used for, and what can I use it for now?
Have YOU ever repurposed a vintage item? Do you enjoy treasure hunting in thrift stores & antique markets? Or maybe you just found something amazing in grandma’s attic & you’re proudly sharing it on the mantle again. Well here’s a chance to prove it.
THE RULES: Post a photo on the wall of Remixed Vintage’s fan page (http://facebook.com/RemixedVintage) that shows us how you re-use or recycle old items – and you’ll be entered in my drawing for a free Remixed Vintage train case! Please provide a little description along with the photos you submit. You’ll have 2 weeks to submit as many times as you like. (Contest ends January 22, 2010, Drawing will be at 3PM) The more various examples you share, the more times you’re entered into the drawing.
Grand prize: One customized Remixed Vintage train case or jewelry box designed by Judy V.

There are times when your happy to have your work stand alone, and then there are time when someone takes your work, and makes with it something so much better then you could have ever dreamed. In the last few weeks it seems as though the amount of treasury’s being made on Etsy has more then quadrupled, but the quality is far and away better then I could have imagined. I am honored to be included with these amazing artist in these remarkable holiday treasuries.
