A Greyt Gift from Amy of Whisperwood Cottage

At the Bonanza I was surprised, when dealer/friend, Jane, kept telling me she had something for me. Something from Amy of Whisperwood Cottage, But she wasn't sure where it was exactly, and I should come back later, but I kept forgetting. Each time I'd come around to Jane's booth, she'd say "I've got something for you, don't leave till I get it". So finally she pulled it out from under a table in her space.
To my shock,  It was the top of a vintage wooden Greyhound Wagon.

After I picked my jaw up off the floor (due to happiness) I was able to admire this wonderful old wagon top, and it's so many possibilities.  I love the greyhound graphics on the sides and the metal industrial brackets, they probably held  wooden rails ( long ago lost).
 I cannot say "thank you" to Amy enough. She obviously knows me well enough to know I love Greyhounds, have had several and currently have two. A full sized sweetie and my timid Italian Greyhound. Those standing around began to speculate on different uses for this fabulous item. A bench, a table, Use the rails to hang leashes, and then I thought, a "dog bed".

 

It may become some of those other things later, but today I quickly made it a dog bed for Lisa to model. All it took was some padding and blankets. If you know greyhounds, you know they will lay down wherever there is padding!

It's a bit too small for Juno the full sized greyhound.
 
 Or maybe not!!!!

Thank you Amy, I absolutely love it and appreciate you thinking of me.

What a sweet and generous thing for Amy to do and such a fabulous piece for a greyhound lover! Amy is one of my favorite bloggers! She always has the best ideas and is so nice! I love the wagon top used as a dog bed and your two sweeties are adorable! If that doesn't work out, maybe a shadowbox table with pictures and mementoes of your pups inside with plexi-glass on the top? Any way that you can connect it with your dogs makes it so much more precious! Enjoy! Hugs, Leena
