True Colors Thursday - Walnut

Today's color is walnut!
Our dad eats walnuts every single day!  He loves them and doesn't share with us!
This teddy is wearing walnut Dutch shoes!
This letter opener is walnut!  It belonged to dad's mom, our nanny!
These Wooliedales are sitting on top of a trunk with a walnut raised panel!

The library in the dollhouse has a walnut paneled wall around the fireplace!  hummmmmm, it looks like someone needs to get to the dusting!
This antique butter mold is walnut!
Next week's color is saffron, which is a golden yellow!

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

Yes we hear walnuts or any other nuts are actually not good for us mongrels. What a shame...

Roan said...

Wow! You found some really nice things for walnut. I especially like the shoes and the butter mold. Wonder how they got the butter out, seems it would stick like glue.

What a pretty dollhouse!! That's good your dad doesn't share walnuts with you...they're not a good food for doggies.

Fred said...

Great choices as always, you two! I heard a nasty rumor that nuts are bad for you, so Old Girl won't share hers either. Boo.

Shirley said...

My mum loves the Airedales on the walnut plinth. We think she has enough Airedale nink nacks as it is and should spend her money on more interesting things such as bones and squeaky toys.

You always do a great job with colors!!!
You all don't have to wait too long for cooler weather. We have to wait till the end of Oct before it will get cooler and if this coming winter is anything like last winter I don't want that either!!!
Thanks for your visit!!
