~ My Six Poodles ~

Love that face!
~ Here are more of my dog figurine collection ~

These are called "Spaghetti Poodles" ... you can guess why

I think this pale blue one is my favorite
~ with her darling hat ~
and her attitude reminds me of our Afghan Hound Dazzle

In the back is a white poodle with a metal 'spring-like' back
that I use for a business card holder.
The smallest ones in front are made of pewter

~ They Amuse Me ~
and only 1-1/2 inches tall
Soon I will show the rest of my doggy figurine collection.
Can you believe I don't have a single Afghan Hound figurine?!?
( I know!  That needs to be remedied. )
... harder to find ...

LOVE LOVE LOVE! I have a couple of the spaghetti sets too! My mom just send me a trio of a mom and babies for my birthday last month. I love them to bits! I am a huge doggie lover so just go gaga over these vintage pink poodles. Loved seeing your collection!

Hope you're having a GREAT weekend.

I am loving this collection sharing of yours, and the way you display them is so magical. THE AQUA is the best!!!!!! THE BEST BACKDROP for showing off these sweet little friends! Yes, an afghan figurine is in order here, but I know, probably so hard to find! I WILL KEEP MY EYES OUT FOR YOU and send you one if I can find it! Oh, I hope I do find one because I know exactly what to do with it....

I have a couple of them too Violet. I never knew they were called spaghetti though till Holly told me ; )
I tied a pink ribbon to mama and baby. I didn't want them to get separated, lol.
Happy Sunday

I have a Sandcast Afghan lying in a basket... it is black and white and about 10 " long. My Diashi was black brindle colors...she was such a lady. I love seeing your pictures!

They are wonderful, dear Violet!!
I was thinking "attitude", then I saw you wrote that..:))
Fabulous, they make me smile too!
But I don't think you will find a figurine to match the incredible beauty that is your precious Dazzle!

I found your blog this morning thru Castles Crowns and Cottages and I am so glad I did. I have been thinking of my grandmother lately and when I opened your blog, I saw your poodle collection that was similar to my grandmothers! She loved her little dog collection. I was lucky enough to receive a few of them..I am looking forward to reading more of your blog!
