Gettin' Creative

Sometimes I gets a hankerin' to do sumptin to cures my boredom...
sumptin dat won't gets me in trubles.

Luckily, furs me I do be a little creative and kinda artsy fartsy.
But I just didn't knows whats to do so I thunked and pondered...then I thunked mores and pondered again...because I likes da word pondered so I thought I should it some mores.

Wells, WHAM hit me likes a road kilt squirrel.
I hads an idea.

I hads to get my suppiles togedders...
  1. wire
  2. blow torch...cuz it's just fun to use.
  3. old vintage ribbon
  4. and then some of dis and dat
  5. and as a rule, safety furst...I notified da fire department, just in case.
Sees, I settled on makin' a piece of jewelry,
a very much special piece of jewlery dat connects me to My Girl.
When hers ain't withs me then I'll always has a part of hers when we is not togedder.
Nows don't ya'lls go a gettin' all teary eyed on me.


I mades me a TOOF necklace!

It's My Girl's toof.

 Nows a part of her will always be withs me.

Okays heres your glamour shot fur da day.

Dexter said...

Are you sure you wouldn't rather eat that toofer?

Bobbie said...

Awww... so sweet! I love it!!
You mean your mum didn't save your baby teeth, Puddles? hmmm,,,, I have Gracie's in a tin somewhere. Tried to sell them on ebay, but no luck. I guess everyone was thinking the same thing, there's no way they'd win, so they didn't even try. I should've did a buy it now. lol

Unknown said...

Hmmmmm.......very nice Puddles!
Lovies, Miss Mindy

Remington said...

That is so special, Miss Puddles! You certainly are creative. Beth has some of my little teeth....I don't think she is going to make a necklace out of them....she keeps them in a scrapbook.... Great job and you look beautiful, as you always do, my friend....

My Mind's Eye said...

Well it Monday and as per norm Mom's eyes are leaking with joyful waters.
OMD Puddles there REALLY is a softie underneath all that hot air and tough talk. Very very very precious and your craftdoxieship is very nice too.
I love the pink vintage velvet string too.

Now lets get down to brass tacks good friend...I can 100% assure you Mum does not have one single toofer from your mouth. Each and everyone of them got sucked up by the sucky monster and no you did not get a visit from the toofer fairy either.
Thems are the facts of life
Hugs from your older and wiser BFFF,

Lovable Lily said...

What a beautiful idea Puddles! Such a special way to remember your girl. (I hope this one fell out on its own and you didn't pull it right outta her mouth.)

My Mind's Eye said...

Puddles tell your mum to buy an itty bitty plastic vial with a top for baby toofers. Then you can make a necklace with matching vintage ribbon for your Girl to wear around her neck. MOL It will be the new trend and everyone will wanting one.

Mom said she remembers when Toto's baby toofers fell out she'd hear this strange noise when sucking up the dirty floors and lo and behold it was Toto toofers.
Hugs Madi

What Remains Now said...

Oh my goodness, I was so excited when I saw the title of your post, and I was not disappointed. It's sweet and sentimental to those who know what it is and a terrifying, tough warning to those that don't. ("Don't mess with me or I'll make jewelry from your body parts...Mr. Squirrel, Groundhog, Mouse.")

jen said...

Puddles that is such a creative idea! I love it! Now, I have to ask this questions since I am a Mom and all-what about the tooth fairy? Is your girl gonna wonder or does she already know? Just curious because that is a great and all of my kids teeth are sitting in plastic baggies in the closet-cause I am very NOT creative!

ShellePenn said...

Who'da thunk that you'd be so crafty. Next thing we know you'll be on the DIY Network.. I mean you have better looks than Ty Pennington... I could totally sees it.

Unknown said...

You looks loverly.........and kinda different, when you is wearing a collar. We is used to seeing your neck all nekkid and stuffs.

The furst foto of you is fabulous. (butt don't get da big-head over da compliment)

Unknown said...

PeeS ...... My momma tried to be creative this weekend, and it looks to me like YOU was her inspiration. I actually has a post about it today (gasp)

georgia little pea said...

Dear Puddles,
I'm really excited because I only had to read this post 3 times to understand it! Before ya knows it, ah be speakin like ya. I love da road kilt squirrel. BOL! It hit me wham bam! I didn't even have to ponder or thunk too much. You is too funny. And I figured out what a toof was too! (Mostly because ya gave a mighty good hint in the picture.) Okay, I better stop ramblin like a rose. See ya :) x

Bassetmomma said...

Isn't that sweet! You've got me all teary eyed! LOL!

Scooter said...

Hey Puddles!
Wow, I gotta be honest and say I find that just a whole bunch creepy! It gives me the heebie-jeebies. What's next...used kleenexes or toenail clippings?!? Yuck. A bored Puddles is a scary Puddles!
BTW: This post made me go BWAR HAR HAR! BOL
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Matilda the Boxer said...

You're so very creative, Puddles! Wow, I'm in awe.

Scooter said...

who knew that you were so crafy Puddles!! I think it looks great!! Yah you better investigate that teef situation!! YOu have some pretty nails there Puddles.


Sweet William The Scot said...

Well I am guessing your toofers are probably in poop somewhere.
I love your necklace quite stylish.

Patrice and Higgins said...

Pretty craft you is! You are a better man to your girl than me...don't think I could wear teeth around my neck! BOL!!


Pippen said...

That's real purty! Now what you need to do is set up and Etsy account and go out and kill more critters (we really don't think that groundhog was a stuffie) so you can have more toofers. We're pretty sure you could make millions of green papers!

Sam and Pippen

PeeS. What part of this project did you use the blow torch on?

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

OMD OMD Puddles this is just the mostest WONDERFUL Idea... a Perfect way to keep your girrrrl close to your heart when she is away as school and stuffs. You did an amazing job. I hope that you didn't singe your furs with the Blow Torch. Sniff Sniffff.. nope no singed furs odor comin through the interNUT.
So I guess this was a Trial Run fur the necklace of Ground Hog Teefs that you will be Paw Craftin fur your MUM fur Mother's Day on Sunday.
I just hope that MY mom doesn't see this and get the bright Idea of makin a necklace fur HERSELF. I think she STILL has Ernie's Very Furst POOP.

GOOSE said...

OK I promised myself I wouldn't cry..... lower lip quivering. Dang it there I go. Dang you Puddles now I am all leaky eyed. That is sweet in a weird sort of way. But it gives me an idea (you do that you know inspire others). A couple months back I knock MOM's back tooth lose, it's really lose. She wishes it would just fall out but won't go to the dentist. So I figure I can pop her in the mouth again when we are playing and then I can make me one of those special things to hang from my collar. Thanks for the great idea. I gotta go now I need a tissue.

The Websters said...

Ok, you are genius. I wish I had a girl so I could get some teeth to wear around. Also, when the Stoopids are acting stoopid, you can just allude that the tooth is from some old neighbors who didn't behave. They don't need to know it's actually a sentimental piece.

As for the table, I do get up there. Then Master comes out yelling through his teeth. Can you picture it? They're all clenched together and he says, "NORA! GET DOWN!" I make him repeat it about four times and then I mosey on down. He needs to remember that I am the boss and I do what he says because it's something I wanted to do anyway.

So pumpkin made your sissy poop? How does it stop you up and make you poop at the same time? Seems like witchcraft to me.


Peggy Frezon said...

You must love your girl very much. You and your mom are pretty clever.

Declan said...

Now there's an idea... Maybe I could have a necklace made with Mums grey hairs...hehehe!! Deccy x

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said... bout makin your Momma a toof necklace too. Still got dat ground hog you deadened?

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Well, isn't that somethin'? You are so very creative Puddles, and we are guessing the fire department didn't have to come put put any fires. Meowm saves our whiskers that have fallen out. We don't know why, but she does. Maybe she is going to make a wig one day. ;)

houndstooth said...

Bwaaaaa ha ha ha ha! I thought you were going to say it was a bone from that groundhog you killed! You really are one creative girl. I'm sure your girl is very touched that you wanted to keep a part of her around your neck all the time.


P.S. Nice glamour shot!

Dachshund Nola said...

Such a lovely idea Puddles!

Marg said...

Oh Puddles, that is so great, your girl's toofie. That will keep you together all the time. Too bad you don't have any of your baby tooofs. That is such a good job making that toof neck job. Take care.

Brian's Home Blog said...

That is very pretty, but I hope it doesn't bite you!

Anonymous said...

That's kinda weird, don'tcha think, Puddles? Ah well. If it helps you catch critters better (ya know, having one extra toofie to grab them with), then more power to you! :)

Riley always ended up swallowing all of her teeth...I never saw a single one of them. :( What a loser she is...or maybe I'm the loser...? Bwahaha!

Barbara said...

Dat's so cool!

Very nice, Puddles. Now we can't help but wonder what would happen if you put that toofer under your pillow tonight? Try it and let us know, OK?

Ziggy Stardust said...

Puddles you do take me through a lot of different emotions. I am just getting over being scared of you after that groundhog thing and now you make me sniffle and tear up. That is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I asked Mommy if I could make one from my Sisters tooth but she said no, her teeth don't come out until she is old. I don't get it, but I will try to find something of hers to make a necklace with. Thanks for the great idea.
