thank you for your comments on yesterday's post.
With regard to the Dog Brooch...
Flamin' Nora asked what the dog's name was.
 Sharon Young's comment with regard to 'Monsieur Bob', inspired me to call 
this particular dog design 'Bob the dog'.   Catchy eh?
I will be making more of those particular brooches soon.
Another kind of dog makes another appearance on a Brooch.

 I was very lucky today to receive a gift out of the blue, from Christine of gentlework
A beautiful brooch made for me.   Christine said that she had found the Dog in a button box, so made a brooch home for him to live on.
Made my day to receive such a lovely gift.

I am having a little break away from blogging over the next few days, as the current husband and I are off to London town.   
There are a couple of things I want to do...
Hoping to go Mudlarking on the Thames foreshore, when the tide is out, of course :)   Here is a brilliant Mudlarker  Blog , which you may already know about.   So I wonder what we will find?  
I also want to visit Dennis Servers' House, looks like an incredible experience.   
Not sure if either of these will happen, but just looking forward to a couple of days in London.  
See you on the other side.  Have a great weekend.

They are both wonderful Viv. And how about a Foxy Lady to go with your Mister.
Have a lovely time in London.
I'll be thinking of you over here where its -15 C today...

Fantastic! I love Bob. Who knows if he will replace Dennis in my heart but he's going to be up there I can feel it in my bones!
Have a wonderful weekend looking forward to hearing about your visit to Dennis Severs house, if you can find the words to describe it! x

So glad you named the dog Bob, I think it really suits him.
Thanks for the link to Mudlarking, I'd never heard of the term, have a love time.

Go early to Dennis Severs house, queues form, worth it though. Have fun in the mud, something I have always wanted to do.

I think the name Bob is just perfect. How wonderful to receive an unexpected gift and such a beautiful one too. I love the colour of the background. Hope you have a wonderful time in London, so many things to see! Have fun x
