With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Show and Tell ~ Spaghetti Poodle

Show and Tell ~ Spaghetti Poodle

Now here is a little treasure that doesn't exactly fit in with current decorating trends. This glamorous little pooch has been in my life for as long as I can remember so I'm kind of fond of her. Well, fond isn't exactly right either. Maybe just sentimental remembering all of the times, as a kid, I had to dust her. I don't remember what happened to her cute little pups. They probably ended up in with my Barbies.
Somehow I became the guardian of this ancient nicknack.
Do young woman today even know what nicknacks are?
Are they spelled nick-nacks or knickknacks...

Noun1.knickknack - a small inexpensive mass-produced article
2. nicknack - miscellaneous curios. bric-a-brac, knickknackery, whatnot, knicknack, curio, curiosity, oddment, peculiarity, rarity, oddity
- something unusual -- perhaps worthy of collecting (or perhaps, not)
This little lady's painted eyebrows and coiffed hair only adds to her flamboyant appearance.
She always seems to have a haughty air about her.
And a look that says, "You wouldn't dare send me to Good Will!"
No. Since I have this sentimental heart, I'll just dust her off once again and tuck her back into the cabinet from which she came.

I love these types of knick knacks. Mama had a Santa about this size that had the spaghetti beard.

Olga said...

Ha-ha, I love the last picture. You're right, her face does say that.
Happy Show and Tell Friday!

Very cute! I have a pink one just like that; she only has one pup (I think they usually have two.)

Shelia said...

Oh, she's darling! She knows she's gorgeous! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Thats funny...what a history too. She does have quite the look on her face..maybe she is wondering what happened to her pups! :D

Oh I'd be dusting her off too! What a charmer!!! [I have one item that I have too, that's been with me since I was seven!] Gotta love this kinda thing, don't you think?

My Show n Tell is 'showing off the flowers...". Do come by if you have time today, I'd love to have you visit with me.

I have recently discovered the joy of vintage Knickknacks and I was lucky to find 2 of these lovely poodles!! I have seen quite a bit of them lately out in Blogland!!

Happy Friday! I am stopping by via the linky party.

Your poodle looks utterly charming!

Janice said...

Yes, it is hard to pin down the appeal. As you say it is more to do with the memories than the artistic merit of the piece! It makes me think of circular skirts with lots of frou-frou petticoats!

Ann said...

I always called them knickknacks and I used to have a huge collection. I don't remember what happened to all the ones I had but I know they're long gone.

Ms. Bake-it said...

Wow! You brought back some fond memories! My Grandmama had that poodle and her pups in her collection of knickknacks. There were gold chains keeping the pups attached to her. Hmmm, I wonder what happened to her and the pups.

I have a spaghetti poodle too, that was my moms. I'm guessing its from the 50's or 60's because of the Disney like cartoon eyes. Here is mine: http://www.flickr.com/photos/harophotography/12685740514/
