Quick DIY project for man's best friend

I did a quick 10 minute project this week after being inspired by these DIY personalized dog bowls by Martha Stewart.

Rosie's dog bowl had been looking a little gnarly (see below--ick) so I decided to spruce it up a bit following Martha's project.

Instead of using letters on transferring paper like Martha Stewart did, I just used these stick-on glitter letters I had in my craft cabinet.

Then I just dotted along the edges of the stick-on letters with a black marker 
(and fudged the letter "E" along the way--oops).

Lastly, I added some rope to the bottom using a hot glue gun.
Rosie's bowl had the black rubber ring around the bottom but ate it off when she was a puppy. 
That was one of the first of many things she ate that she wasn't supposed to. 
Bad dog!

Okay I take it back. 
She's a good girl and an excellent model.

Oh, if you are admiring Rosie's chevron collar, I bought it here on Etsy.

I've also bought this one on Etsy as well...

...and I'm currently coveting the chambray swiss dot one.
If J.Crew made dog collars, I'm pretty sure this is what they would look like!

A quick thanks to Catherine from Chic Geek for featuring my blog on Sunday!
My first feature--wahoo!!
