Sabi Saturday – Puppy Dog Keepsake
Click the above link to join in! 🙂
Ideas to share for Sabi Saturday:
- the vintage/antique items handed down or we “rescue” from garage sales and thrift stores so they don’t end up in a trash bin
- items we’ve upcycled instead of throwing them away
- items we’ve repaired in a transformative way to make them more beautiful or cooler than before
- process or tutorials on how we upcycled or repaired something to make something new, more beautiful, or cooler
- the main idea is showing how we treasure or reuse or creatively transform things that have some history to them, may be a bit worn but nevertheless are still useful/beautiful and often have character.
This is a little brown and white puppy dog made of plaster of Paris (I think). Looks like a Cocker Spaniel to me.
Anyway, it belonged to my Granny. Every time we went over to her house, I wanted to see this little dog. I don’t know why, but I just loved it.
I do have it now, and I keep it in a glass & wood shelving unit that belonged to my mom. It has other things in there that I’ve got a good memory of.
This little dog, though, now that I look at it more closely, has a sticker on the leg. It’s hard to read, but says it is a souvenir of maybe someplace in Missouri? The letters are half-way messed up, but I can make out Ne ??? Mo.
On the back is some writing that must have been from my aunt Nina to her mom – my Granny.
It says April 1955 – To – mama – from Nina.
Even though it is old, and has been broken in several places, then glued back together, I’m glad I still have this little puppy dog since I liked it so much when I was a kid. 🙂
Different views of the brown & white dog:
- laying down facing right – shows brown fluffy curly hair ears, stubby tail (cream & white colored body)
- facing to the front
- showing the red & yellow souvenir sticker
- showing the bottom with writing from my aunt
note – for some reason WP is not letting my links work on this – hopefully it will work later
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
