peep show: miss edith's dapper doxie duds

o purple lace harness,
why am i dressed in you?
i am not a girl.

- baxter, 3.1 years old, on being lucky enough to fit Miss Edith's dapper doxie dud.

There's something so very Christmas morning about finishing up a dapper doxie dud order. Aside from the wrapping and sending, there's excitement and anticipation, the kind that's hard to ignore when it's so easy to post and show to the world that I've been doing more than just feeding Jenna all day. I am on a roll, ladies and gentlemen, and only the winds of procrastination can keep me from forging on with doxie dud orders.

Yesterday, I finished up a dapper doxie dud for Miss Edith, the real recipient of the lacy harness that Baxter is modeling. This girl is a sweet, senior doxie who only recently found her forever home, and whose new mom wanted her to have something special. Only Miss Edith knows the secrets of her past, why and how it is she ended up needing a new home so late in life. Somehow, it seemed only appropriate that Miss Edith wear purple, that she be graced with the textures of hand dyed lace and silk, adorned with mother of pearl, and comforted by the warmth of a soft flannel lining. The package is on its way, sweet girl.

Tomorrow, a start on harnesses for Molly, and hopefully some late night Etsy postings.

Hee hee! That must be what Molly is dreaming about when she barks and rumbas in her sleep.

Oh, that is so sweet. I'm so glad she found her forever home and I can't wait to hear how much she loves her package! I'm going to your etsy store right now!

Miss Edith is so beautiful, and that gorgeous purple vest will have her looking more put together than Heidi Klum! To think, a forever home and beautiful clothes for this senior lady. What a great story.

This Baxter cross dressing stuff must have Duk Duk in stitches.


P.S. As soon as we break free of the cold temps and sleet storms, we'll have to begin thinking about Oskar's summer vest. Right now we're back under the heavy blankets!

aw thanks everybody! I sure hope Miss Edith likes it, she really does seem so sweet! It may be obvious to those who tried to visit that my etsy shop is a little bare. Yeesh what work it is to get stuff on there! So, I've also included dapper doxie dud info on the sidebar now, in hopes of phasing out the alchemy thing on Etsy. Finished goodies will still appear from time to time in the Etsy just now! Happy Weekend everybody! From what I can gather, Baxter is going to move from cross dressing into snowgear tomorrow!
