Dogs and Horses

I love dogs and horses and they appear in vignettes all over our cottage. The sweet Yorkie in the Victorian frame is my first Yorkie, Bitterman. He was our "little gentleman". When David and I were married, Bitterman stood up with us. It was the first time our Pastor performed a ceremony with a dog standing up with a couple. In the photo peeking out from behind, you can catch a glimpse of my grandmother. She too was a dog lover and loved cats as well. The little fellow in the square frame is my husband David when he was a baby. That's his Dad.

Here is a small equestrian theme vignette in a bookcase. The fox in a riding habit is Royal Doulton. There is a small Limoges box next to it. A photo taken while schooling a young horse is in the background. A china horse figurine from my childhood is front and center.

Thank you for visiting me today. I am joining Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life for her Table Top Tuesday. Please visit Marty and the other party participants as well.
