Christmas with the Poodles

I have the hardest time thinking of what to name my posts....takes me longer to do that than to write them up!   Christmas with the Poodles was the best I could do for this post.....lol!.    I put together a   vignette using my new Nutcracker....she is walking her substantial group of poodles.    I bought her last year at the Pier One after Christmas sale.
I made a new ornament Christmas tree to go in the vignette.   I used a poodle planter as the base for my tree.   I had a set of three matching trees and used the largest on to make the ornament tree. ( you can see the other two trees behind the poodle planters head...see the matching stars on the top) 
H said the vignette reminded him of  Cruella Deville and all those dalmatians.....only with poodles!   See what I have to put up with....lol!
My Nutcracker lady originally had red bows on her packages and also on the hat box.   I removed the red and replaced it with pink,  of course....


So....funny story.....I had this post all written up on Friday but had not published it yet. .  This was the final picture.

  We went to the auction on Saturday and I had to add a couple more photos and redo the ending.....
I had to move all the poodles that were on the top shelf to the three lower shelves in the cabinet to make room for .......
You guessed it!!    Two new poodles that I bought at the auction Saturday .....aren't they cute?
So here is the new vignette on the top of the cabinet and the lower shelves are filled with the other poodles.    Things are always changing around here!

  2. I had a poodle fixation when I was a kid. I had a huge stuffed poodle that I worked all day at a "fair" to get...they let me BUY it for $3.00 at the end of the day...after I had worked all day. lol I had a poodle pillow that someone made for me and I collected porcelain poodles. I never saw a real one until I was 20 years old! lol xo Diana
