My friend Eunice wrote a blog post about her Postcrossing hobby and showed some of the lovely postcards she has recently bought. Her blog post inspired me to show you the card she sent to me a couple of weeks ago. It was a complete surprise when it dropped through my letterbox and Eunice wrote inside that it reminded her of Tilly but wrong colour of course.
Little did Eunice know but although Tilly is jet black with some white on her chest, Tilly's Mum is the spitting image of the dog on the card, a chocolate cockapoo. I didn't write any details about Tilly when I introduced her on my blog, but even more surprising is Tilly's Dad is an apricot cockapoo. Tilly was from a litter of seven pups, six black girls and one apricot boy. The boy was already sold but we chose Tilly from the black sisters, we've always had bitches so we wanted a girl anyway. Tilly was born on New Year's day so I won't ever forget her birthday and of course I think she is so cute with her poodle fur and spaniel face. I'm keeping the card in my dog journal and thank you so much Eunice.
Eunice also posted a photo of a lovely picture she has bought so I will show you the picture I bought for our recently painted wall in the downstairs cloakroom. I found it online and it is handmade from pebbles, driftwood and sea glass finished with a twine frame. It features a family of four and dog and I just had to have it. Some people are so talented and have such interesting hobbies. I sometimes wonder how on earth I manage to keep my blog going but now and then I get some inspiration from somewhere or other :)
