Equestrian Love



I am still planning on doing the guest bedroom in a hunt theme when I redo it and always look for items that will go with my idea for the room.

While visiting one of my favorite antique stores, I found this little figurine.  I fell in love with the English gentleman and his dogs.  I thought it was so cute and the colors were wonderful. 


Look at those precious little guys.  Don't they just melt your heart.


Quite the gentleman, all dress for a day at the hunt.


For now I thought it went well with my little stable boy picture in the bookcase.


 Standing next to the riding hat, he looks quite dapper.


 A fun addition to my vignette.  He was only $5.99, and just too cute not to bring home.

Don't you just love finding new treasures.

I am linking to the following parties:


Leigh at Tales from Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday
On Sutton Place for the Open House Party on Thursdays
Honey at 2805 for Potpourri Friday
Courtney at French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday
Diann at The Thrifty Groove for Thrifty Things Friday

  11. Marty, he is a keeper, I would have grabbed him up too given the chance. I was just at SA looking around (senior day don't ya know) and saw an equestrian print. I did pass it up, I just don't have a space for another one.

  31. Very nice, Marty! I see that you have "Wild Swan" by Celeste de Blasis, who is one of my favorite authors. Have you read it or is it just for decor?

    ReplyDelete
  32. It's fun to have a theme to be on the "hunt" for. For that price, how could you pass him up. You've already got the equestrian theme going on with your little vignette.

  33. I like him Marty!
    I think the hunting theme will be so neat and so original too!
    I don't see a lot of that, can't wait to see the bedroom!

  48. He's very handsome Marty. Now, I just did a post on Staffordshire figures and how I had one that was valuable and didn't even know it. You should look yours up. I found out that it won't have a marking on it (it will be open on the bottom) because of it's age. Just a thought.
