Peg Dolls ~ Caturday

If you’re a cat lover, like me, you’re in for a peg dolls treat today!

There’s a few reasons for this post, the first being that this week has marked both the UK’s  Cat Protection National Black Cat day, and US’s National Cat Day.

Secondly (and most excitedly), we welcomed a brand new furry friend into our household yesterday. We already have two beautiful cats, but when we saw a call for an indoor home for a special little cat who is deaf, we couldn’t resist adopting her.

Here she is, little Pearl. She was given her name by the Cat Sanctuary, but I thought it suited her perfectly. Well, that and the fact that the only alternatives Mr T could come up with were Whitefang and Wolfie *rolls eyes*.

She is just 8 weeks old and very confident. She helped herself to our others cats food without a second glance within minutes of being home.  Hoovering was interesting this morning too! I’m used to the cats scarpering at the sound and hiding under the beds until I’ve finished. But to little Pearl the vacuuming was just one big game and she loved chasing it around and around! I guess if you can’t hear it, it’s not scary! She is an absolute doll and has completely won our hearts already. She’s going to be a big fan of the peg dolls too….if sitting on a box of them is anything to go by….

Finally, one of my favourite Instagram hashtags is quickly becoming #Caturday every Saturday. What better way to spend an extra five minutes in bed on the weekend than looking at cute cat pictures? And as today is Caturday, I’m going to indulge in a few of my own, wooden Caturday pictures with you.

These furry friends formed part of a VERY exciting peg dolls wedding cake topper which I will be excited to share soon:

Peg Dolls – Plaits & Kitty Cats

Child and Cat peg dolls
We had a very happy little customised peg doll recipient on our hands this week. I totally loved creating this cute Child and Cat peg dolls set for a very special little  girl. The tiny cat and kitten were fun to burn and colour. Needless to say recreating the little girls’ “signature hair style” of a side French plait was lovely to do too! I had complete artistic freedom with the outfit. Therefore I chose something bright and colourful to make the peg doll set as appealing as possible to the little girl.

She was thrilled when she opened the peg dolls. The cats spilled out of the pretty package first, and she recognised them as her beloved Potter and Luna straight away. She is a big Harry Potter fan! She squealed “It’s me!” when she pulled out the little girl peg doll. Clearly, she was was so excited to see that her wooden doll had a matching plait in her hair! It is certainly such a lovely feeling to see my little wooden peg dolls bringing such joy and excitement to a darling little girl!

This  Child and Cat peg dolls set was a lovely commission. However, if you’re not a cat lover, do not fear! I can happily make dogs too! Pugs in particular seem to be quite a common request. I’m always happy to accommodate any requests.

 If you’d like to record the special bond that your child shares with their pet, my Child and Pet customised wooden peg doll sets start at just £12…see our price list for more details.

It’s looking like a beautiful, sunshine-filled weekend here in Wales! Hope you have had a lovely week wherever you are in the UK and make the most of this lovely weather over the weekend!
