Recently, I listed some of my dear old stuffed poodles. They've been garnering a fair amount of attention, most notably from Asian buyers, but the postage for these large items is rather terrifying, and so far, no one's quite taken the hook:
There are, of course, my signature toilet tissue cozies available, though I haven't made any new ones for a while, but what I really want to show you today came from a fabulous estate sale which junking-buddy/sister-in-law Claudia and I found last summer.
I've been clutching these little beauties to myself, but--vet bills beckon--so today I officially put them on the block. Take a look:
Aren't these terrific? The woman who made them used them to decorate her walls; I think they'd be perfect for a poodle skirt or some over-the-top kitsch tote bag or purse. They wouldn't be difficult to make, so do feel free to "steal the plans"--I can't stop you, anyway, and I'm certainly going to attempt to make some.
These sweet dogs are at least 50 years old. I wish I knew more about the lady who made them, and where she got the idea.
We used to have a standard poodle; she was quite a girl! I still have a soft spot for poodle collectibles, though I'm definitely a pomeranian convert since Peppy came along.
|This is Charlie, our very big poodle (according to our groomer, she was the biggest female poodle in the county while she lived.) Peppy is just 2 years old here; Wickham and Lollia were pups.|
