Buddy And The Ugly Side Of Collecting


No, that's not a dust bunny shaken off of my mop. Although he is the cause of many dust bunnies! That's our faithful, slightly dim witted little Buddy! When Buddy first arrived in our home I found myself suddenly drawn to all things dog. I vowed that I would not become that person with a picture of her dog on her purse, a dog charm bracelet, needlepoint pillows of dogs and most especially clothing with dogs on it!!! I must admit there is a very strong pull to go to this dark, dark side of collecting, why else would people have black velvet paintings of dogs playing poker? So far, I have kept my wits about me, just taking it one day at a time.

Cute Dog! As a child my parents would take me along when they went to visit an older couple they were friends with, and this couple had those velvet dog paintings along the stairwell going to the gameroom in the basement. I was fascinated by them and thought all high art had velvety texture until I was a bit older.

This is a slippery slope - as the mom of two dogs of extra kitschy breeds (poodle and dachshund), I fight this battle every day. Be strong!

Or, succumb but just keep it on the down low. Whichever.
