There's a New Girl in Town

This sassy miss came home 

with me from a recent estate sale.

It was love at first sight for me.

She is a Staffordshire

 begging spaniel jug or pitcher.

I'm not certain about her pedigree,

though I feel certain she is definitely vintage.

Perhaps a vintage reproduction.

What matters most is she is black and white 

and the perfect companion to this gentlemen

who I've had for several years.  

He too is a black and white begging spaniel

jug or pitcher with a tricorn hat.

Don't they 

make the perfect pair?

I think perhaps Mister is of newer vintage,

but that's OK,  he fits right in with

all of the Courtly Checks around the house.

He was a thrifty find at Goodwill some years ago.

They could easily be

parents to these two sweet pups.

Yes,  I feel as if

a family has been reunited!

They are currently part of a vignette

on the dining room buffet.

I gathered a group of 

Courtly Check pieces and filled

them with summer hydrangeas.

Along with a piece of

figurative art by a favorite NY artist.
