Does anyone collect poodle or dog figurines, art, etc.? I have lots of books and few figurines. I also found a really pretty scarf several years ago with show dogs on a red background. I like the spaghetti poodles, but I don't have any.
OMG do we ever! I have many poodle figurines, tee shirts, picture frames, stuffed, "Beware attack poodle" sign, Poodle weather vein on top of my house, Poodle scuptures, etc. Once we got our first poodle the poodle oriented gifts started coming in droves. Now many of the figurines are packed in boxes in the attic, because I cannot display them all. Nevermind I am not interested in dusting that many things. I have a book on poodle collectables as well.
I used to have hundreds of "puppy in my pocket" figurines (the ones that actually resembled dogs, not the big goofy oversized head ones). I had lots of dog stuffed animals, and dog posters. Now I pretty much just have my dog necklace that my bf gave me for our first christmas. It's one of my most prized possessions.
So far no poodle art for me... unless somebody gave me some and I've forgotten about it already.
I do collect Tibbie art though (via my mother) Almost all the art I have purchased but weirdly it's all on display in her house?? Oh well LoL. I always find something a couple times a year and gift it. I've gotten hold of a lot of signed stuff. Thats what I look for actualy, these days I don't usualy consider a purchase unless it's a number/signed print and even then I try to limit myself to prints number under 15. You can find a lot of good stuff on Ebay A girls best friend dont ya know LoL.
I haven't gotten around to starting a poodle collection yet, though I do have a couple of IG's and whippets already.
I don't personally have a lot of doggy stuff (although I do have 4 dogs that The Fiance and I shove into a small rent house. At least the back yard is HUGE!) My mother, the greyhound aficionado has a zillion things greyhound. Cookie jar, cookie cutter, canvasses, jewelry of all sorts, clothing, a hood ornament off of a car that is a grey, etc... I am house sitting for her currently, and I keep finding things!
The worst part is, she's just moved here "temporarily" to -ruin my life - be a guest professor at uni, and I'm finding things she must have hidden from my father in boxes. Seriously, does one REALLY need a set of Tervis Tumblers with running greyhounds in them? I think not.
However, as much as I make fun, I would have to say the prettiest things she has that are greyhound related are a canvas of Athena/Diana, Goddess of the Hunt surrounded by greyhounds, and our first greyhound's urn. Our first grey was very important to all of us, but more so my mother, as she helped her over great loss. Then, to only have her for 7 years was a hard blow to not only my family, but my mother even more. Wonderful girl... anyway, moving on!
Oh... well, okay, I may have lied... I do have some random little things (post card, picture of a puppy that came in a frame I couldn't bare to throw away because The Fiance and I agree that this is probably what TheQueenOfEverything looked like as a baby) that look like my puppy girl, mainly meant to be JRTs. They look close enough to her that I have to get them!
And thus, another long winded post under my belt! Can you blame me? I work with small children every day. Adult conversation is so wonderful!
Wonder, they have a bunch at Petsmart, but I don't remember seeing Poodles. They're on a display w/ keychain, magnents and stuff. I was looking at the Boxer socks for a friend, but I don't think they were men's sizes.
yup!! I've got poodle salt & pepper shakers, a few lil toys, a scarf (with a white spoo and the eiffle tower all over it. I figured it suited my white girl who's name is Paris after all!!!) and a nice beswick china ornament too. A couple of iron coat hooks with poodle silhouettes ontop, and various other poodley bits and pieces.... hehe.
