Suspicious and Coy Bulldog

I’m visiting my family in Metro-Detroit this week and my mom surprised me with an impromptu Craft & Antique Mall… and it was one of the most successful treasure-hunting trip in a very long time! All the information I have on this lovely man is “Carnival Prize Bulldog.” Complete with off-center airbrushing.

I’m so proud to have grown up in a place where people have such wonderful, weird taste. It must be because we have basements to put it all.

    This guy has such a happy face. I love his hat.

    I absolutely love these kind of carnival animals. I love the way the color is absorbed into the chalk.

    Where does your family live in Detroit? Where did you go to high school? I’m a Mumford girl.

      This is one of the happiest bulldogs I’ve ever seen! Happiest and some really bold color choices.

      We’re from Dearborn/Livonia. I went to high school at Livonia Stevenson.

    I sure hope you purchased this chalkware pooch! I was never a lucky person when it came to playing games at carnivals. This was when winning something at a carnival made the experience of winning pretty cool. I would have had a fit if they were giving away this stuff when I was hanging out at carnivals. Instead I would always win cheaply made stuffed animals and twisted, blown soda bottles.

    This is really sweeeeeeeet!
