GOING TO THE DOGS: $18K-$23K Doghouses

Feng Shui By Fishgirl hopes your feng shui is excellent so you can spend some of that extra cash on your pampered pooch. The luxury doghouses at La Petite Maison give one paws. Elaborate copies of wealthy owners’ homes, they cost between $18,000- $23,000 or more! Believe it or not, less than a mile from my home is a full-sized mansion that is home to the remaining golden retrievers of the late eccentric philanthropist Randall Terry, Jr. He bequeathed millions to charity including a wonderful new veterinary complex opening soon in North Carolina. And he left his house and pool–no kidding–for his dogs to enjoy until they die. There are caretakers who look after the dogs but they do not share the home with them.

CHARLIE SHEEN’S FENG SHUI MELTDOWN

I was browsing one of my fave blogs today —Hooked on Houses–where I discovered a lot of pictures of Charlie Sheen and his ex’s house that was for sale back in 2009. They divorced soon after. At first glance, the home is gorgeous. Look at it again with feng shui eyes, however, and you will see many feng shui blunders. Am I saying Charlie’s addiction problems could have been cured by feng shui? No, I wouldn’t go on record with that. What feng shui can do is create a safe, supportive, peaceful environment that becomes a solid foundation for your life. If you’re already messed up and you surround yourself with oppressiveness in your home space it could push you in the wrong direction. Take a look at the photos for clues and see if you can tell me what’s wrong with those pictures–and also what you think they got right.

PLANETARY INFLUENCES

Has anyone else been feeling astrologically battered lately? The news from the mideast is grim, the people of Japan are suffering from the tsunami, the economy is shaky…makes me wanna crawl back into my cave for a couple of years. But it’s gonna be dark in that cave so I decided to look for some lighting. These–all from WeGotLites–are definitely designed with the planets in mind. I wonder if there’s good feng shui on Saturn? Having circular and global shapes definitely adds yin energy to your space to balance out the square angles.
