Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...

I've been doing a bit of shopping on Etsy lately, and I am long overdue for a post on a few of my favorite "pet" things...

Popogirl - MD Dog Art
THE most fabulous doggie necklaces. My border collie necklace does not want to be taken off. It's also strangely comfortable for something so large. It's so light, I forget I'm wearing it. In fact, I just picked up another - this time, a Corgi. I eagerly await it's arrival.

Bit Of Whimsy Dolls
THE most adorable little stuffies EVER!! The monkeys, the cats, the little lambie-pies. I have not splurged yet. Seems like everytime I put a stuffie on my wish list and let it simmer, someone else snaps it right up.

I'm still keeping a list. My birthday's coming up.

Amelia Makes Art
THE most outrageous, cool, doppleganger-y felt pet "portraits"! I really want mini-me's of Ruby and Daisy. These are totally on my Etsy wish list in the sky but they have really seeped into my consciousness. I might need to buy myself a little birthday present...

Moonlight Bindery
This doesn't really (...officially) count, because the closest "pet-connection" here is the Corn Flakes mascot, Cornie. But Cornie's an animal, after all, and who cares! I need an excuse to share this with you -- I just adore these "upcycled" notebooks. Just picked up a few and can't wait to get 'em.

Pug Notes
Melissa's pug art is something to behold -- straight-forward, and straight to your gut emotion-packed faces. Just look at these pug mugs. I dare you to not whimper an "awwww!!"
I just love her pug note cards - I sometimes use them as Thank You's to my own clients - and the quality is most definitely there - these are really nice!! (Plus, take a look at some of her more offbeat offerings -- WHO KNEW that you needed a knit-pug tape measure cover??)
I recently picked up an irresistible pug charm from Melissa. I should receive it in the next week or two. I am so looking forward to wearing it!!

Thank you SO much for this Kathy! I will be leasing office space in a new studio next week and plan to decorate all of my office walls with etsy dog art.

I went to etsy to check out what was there and was totally (!) overwhelmed at the choices in dog art and doggie stuff. Your list will help a great deal so thank you!

P.S. You can bet one of your pieces will be going on the wall. It's between Buster the Cowdog and the Good Dog pug. :-)

Oh, and I forgot to say that a custom needle felted dog is SO on my wish list after seeing it this week. I am saving my pet photography pennies! Too bad Fergie loves to destroy stuffed things. I'll have to keep it up high in a glass case, lol!!

Here is another one for you to add to your wish list Kathy. I immediately thought of you when I saw this:
