... featuring a hand made Prim Heart  and Vintage Wooden Box...
Junio is adopted
He is a custom order order. "Do you take custom orders Thea...?"
No, but it was a very special request. A friend of mine is getting married on the June the 1st
and she wants to give her parents a very special gift. 

It was a request for a doggie. A challenge for me as I never made a doggy before.
So off I went into my studio to make one.

Junio is full of wedding symbols:
He wears a simple piece of ice-blue vintage ribbon bow with rusty bell around his neck and I made him a vintage charm of an old Dutch penny with the letter " J" for Junio.
"Get a penny, pick it up, and all the marriage you'll have good luck"
Junio is Spanish for June, the country that the bride and groom love to visit.

This is the backside of the penny. It's from 1948.
This was the last year that our former Queen Wilhelmina reigned.
The numer 1 refers to the wedding date: the 1st one of June.
Mea culpa: I couldn't find a penny of 2012 :o( That would have been more appropriate!
But this penny by far has matching colors :o)

I made a little as a symbol of LOVE with tiny handmade rose buds in matching colors.
Of course the text refers to the wedding day, a lifetime highlight.
No further explanation needed.
I can't stop looking at him and hold him in my hands as he will soon leave my home.
He is sooooooo sweet ♥

 May this day you share,
be filled with love and laughter.
May all the days ahead,
be happy ever after!
Best wishes on Your Wedding Day  

For those who cannot get enough of him either, he has his own webpage with
much more full sized photos. Click >> HERE <<
And yes.........I will definitely make more doggies.
As a dog lover and proud owner of the best dog on earth☺, I feel I am obliged to make more!!!
