The Domino Book of Dogs

A couple of years ago, I made two little domino books, one which was a present for a friend and one which I kept. It had vintage images of birds and I had it displayed on a shelf by the computer where I could see it every day. This was it - 

I decided that it would be a nice thing to put into the auction one of the rescue charities I support is holding. And bids are coming in, yay. So I thought perhaps a new domino book with vintage dog images would be a nice idea for the auction, and spent all evening making this - 

And it got a bid the minute it went on, yay!

Now I am thinking, should I make a vintage cats one as well? Hmm, not sure yet. But it really was fun making another domino book.

My sister would love this. Would you consider making another one and I would buy it directly from you. You could donate what I pay to your favorite shelter.

Truly some beautiful items. I love both and I know a cat item would be Purrfect. The images you have used are precious, both birds and dogs.
And the pretty green color is great for the up coming SPRING..I can hardly wait. Little Domino items have all was fascinated me. Have a lovely Sunday

They are both wonderful, Lizzie. No wonder they got bids. I would think that almost any kind of animal motives would be perfect for an animal charity auction. You are so sweet to create for these good causes.
