Our Favorite Things

Our mom has gone over this edge this time but we have to tell you that she had a little bit of help from our friend, Mona! One of the comments to our mini-Maggie and Mini-Mitch ice cream cone post came from Mona and she sorta planted the apple seed in mom's head! It wasn't long before mom was contacting Carol Usher once again with another request!

Are you ready for this!
It's Mitch with Macintosh Mitch! The boy is so in love with apples that mom knew that this would be just perfect! Macintosh Mitch not only has an apple in his mouth but he has a whole basketful of apples to taste! Carol even made the little basket! Isn't it just too cute?!
We have to tell you that Carol numbers all of her pieces and Macintosh Mitch is #739! That is one busy lady!

Most of you know that Mr. Carrot is my very favorite toy in the whole wide world and always has been and always will be! I've had tons of Mr. Carrots in my lifetime!
Mom asked Carol way back in 2002 to make me a "Maggie and Mr. Carrot"! The number on this piece is #127! So you can see how busy Carol has been and how popular her pieces are!So we now have our favorites together in wool forever and ever!Thank you so very much, Carol! We smile every single time we look at your beautiful works of art!

So until next time..................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Gee Carol really captures you guys perfectly. Funny that you like apples so much, Mitch, but your feltie is so cute.

Oh my oh my, you have two more Mitch to the collection?
I looked at Carol's artwork, I think I need a temp job to ask for a mini me playing with...carrot, yeah, I love carrot too.

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

We think Carol is so talented Mom might have to get in touch with her about making minis of us. She has a lot of cool things on her website.

Lilly's favorite thing is a carrot too. She can hear Mom peeling them a mile away and comes running to get a carrot. She also loves sweet potatoes.

Have a blessed Sunday. XOXO
Lilly, Piper and Carrleigh

Those are just adorable - almost as cute as their models. Carol does such a remarkable job getting the expressions just right - you can tell it's not just any Airedale, it's Maggie and Mitch!

Hmmm, I wonder what a pee-wee Petey would look like?

Your pal,


Dexter said...

What impresses me most is that you two can pose for the camera with your favorite foodables and not chow down. Perhaps those were stunt vegetables?


Gus said...

those are darling. That is one talented lady.


Raising Addie said...

How fun this that!

She really is a talented lady. Our mom is going to have to cave in and get some of these.

We think she should start with one of Zoe and K-8 together. That would be a great to have.

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie and Lucie
