The spoons before.

Okay,.... so our dog, Doby, is sooooooo fluffy you can't even see the collar on him, but at this rate he's not going to have time for a hair cut before Christmas so I am using a vintage basket to showcase his new collar.  I cut some vintage spoons into pieces and then drilled holes and connected them with jump rings. I then added a "d", for Doby, some vintage jingly bells and a red ribbon.

Thanks for sharing,

Yes I think our pets think we have gone off the deep end. You can see it in all of their eyes. I have entered 2 of my grandpets in the contest. The 3rd one is in hiding partly because I dressed her as the Joker from the new Batman movie
for Halloween.
My cat knew what was coming because she always sits in my computer chair and in her entry you can see the computer on with JUNKMARKET website showing.
Your collar is sssooooo elegant. But I knew it would be. Doby is one lucky little guy.

MelHow writes: Okay!! This is easily my favorite dog collar so far...it has a jingly feel to it even without the jingles and is definitely festive enough for Christmas. Posted: 7:36 am on December 17th

I don't know how the winner will be chosen, as there are so many great entries with this project. We must love our pets!

Have a great Holiday, I'm flying out of this freezer early, early tomorrow a.m. I'll try to send the sunshine and warmth north with us when we head back home. : )
