If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man.  All things are connected.  Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth.  ~Chief Seattle of the Suquamish Tribe, letter to President Franklin Pierce

  Since I have Thunder, an English Setter, I of course am attracted to anything with hunting dogs. Make it vintage and I am especially happy.

This English Setter decanter we found in an antique store while on vacation, several years ago.  I was thrilled to find it.ebay find

This first embroidered scene I found on Ebay. web-y-010

This embroidered pointers  scene has been in my cedar chest for as long as I can remember.  I finally framed it a couple of years ago.  My mother actually embroidered it when she was very young.  So not only is it a great vintage piece of artwork that I love, it was also made by my mom.  I wonder if she knew back then, that her daughter and her husband would one day have hunting dogs.  Besides Thunder, we also had his mother~ Scooter, another English Setter, and before her, we had a German Shorthair, Spot.  My husband used to bird hunt with them.  They were all great hunters in their day as well as great dogs.
