The Tin Man is one of Mom's faves. Dad found a necklace for her with him on it and she loves it.

Have a Terrific Thursday. We're off to make pies.

I am so impressed!
You did Grey real justice, I've had to have a second go @ it!
aND, Woodstock now wants a Grey Stieff Bear.

TY for the colour suggestion - have adjusted Black, to Black & Tan.
Mmm... I wonder who will feature most that week???

Love, pats & pets

Kelly said...

I always love your gram's work! She is great!

Mitch, you don't look really thrilled to be escorting the Tin Man around! hehehe

Clive said...

We loved your 'grey' post!

Mitch was very good to allow the Tin Man sit on him!

lots of woofs

Laurie, Woo's Editor said...

Ooh no... I STILL haven't gotten around to a color. but your gray shots sure are inspiring. Your gram IS a very talented lady.
Maybe I will do a steiff post instead, the editor thinks I bear (hehe) a striking resemblance to her Mr. Growling Bear and come to think of it we also have a tiny terrier steiff in the living room... I totally forgot, maybe now I can try and relate a bit better to autumn! you both certainly seem to get on well with your house stuffies.
Lots of licks,
Winnie Woo

We loved your gran's painting, we loved the Steiff donkey and bear, we loved the tin man - in fact we loved it all.

Is there any color you don't have as stuffy for? You are two lucky dales.


Unknown said...

These are the very best GREYS! Good job! And you two look very very good accessorized by the greys.

TwoSpecialWires said...

We love gray. And you' found some grayt gray things to photograph. Mom especially loved the needle felted gray goose, but was sad when the link to Miss Carol Usher didn't work. Mom's going to try some needle felting of her own this summer (the stuff's all packed, including some of our deceased Molly's stripped fur) and she thought the gray goose was honking good. We ALL think your gram's work is pawesome, as well!

Thanks for the smiles,
Jake and Fergi

Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

Mama likes the painting that your Gram did. It is beautiful. Kaci and I like the stuffies and that Tin Man is pawsome.

At least Mama and Papa were smart getting Kaci and I. We are representatives of the color grey (or gray) in our family.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
