New for 2009 — Mimi Doggie T Shirts!

Hello! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. My time off went by way to fast and I am already back to work making a bunch of new items for 2009.

This is a silly shot of Cessie in the new Mimi Green Doggie T. They are 100% cotton, made in Costa Rica, and hand embroidered right here in the Mimi studio.

I'd love some feedback on the T. I am thinking of dying them but am not sure of what color!

I love how my awesome customers send me photos of their babies in my collars. Every time I get one of those emails my heart lights up.

This week Wendy from Paws on the Run in Canada sent me a photo of her sweet Lacey in her new Mimi Matilda collar.

Isn't she beautiful?? Wendy said that if Lacey had long hair she would sweep it behind her shoulders to show off her new collar. I love it.

I really have the best customers in the world, I am totally spoiled!

In honor of all these great photos I have started a Flickr group to show off your pups, Mimi Green Fashion Show

It is really easy to post your photos there and a Flickr account is totally free.  If you don't already use Flickr I highly recommend it.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Announcing our New Blog! And Presenting Jake!

Tada! A new look for Mimi to preface the launch of our new shop website. It looks like this, but way more awesome. 

And a new contest:
Since all of you Mimi customers send me such amazing pictures, every month one photo will be chosen at random to appear in our blog banner. It's a small prize, I know, but it is all I've got. 
This month the winner is Jake, he belongs to Meagan in Little Elm Texas and he is so super cute and tiny!

And he looks so happy playing in the Mimi Green grass. 
As you probably guessed, this is a remake of the banner from our new shop. Only on that banner, Cessie is in the grass and will remain there for all of time. Jk, she will only remain there while she is in good graces with me, which won't be for long if she pees in my bed like she did last night. Yup, middle of the night dog pee all over me and the bed. I had to stripe myself and the covers and sleep cold and damp the rest of the night. Good times. If she does it again tonight she will be banned from the banner. And that will make her oh so sad 😉
So congrats Jake, have fun at the top of my blog this month. Hopefully there will be lots of interesting and informative posts under you the next 30 days! 

Honey, I’m home!

Look what I came home to last night:


When I got into the Minneapolis airport I had this wonderful picture waiting for me! C Berry Baby sent me this photograph of her 4 babies. Her boys are more handsome, but her dogs are more furry so it's hard for me to decide what the cutest part of the picture is!

Then I got these when I walked in the door:weimaraner dog

This is Winston, he lives in Canada with his momma Janique. He is quite a specimen. I love his name — he looks just like I thought he would, like a little French gentleman!

Then as I was ohing and awing over these, I got these from Hawaii:


The dark brown lab is named Pua, which is flower in Hawaiian and the yellow lab is named Hoku which means star. How cute is that?

I am nuts about Labs, so I was super happy to see these guys — they remind me of my Etta!

I was so happy when I went to sleep last night. I am so lucky to have such great customer and clients! Everyone is always so enthusiastic and grateful, when really I am the lucky one who gets to see such super cute doggies wearing my work.

Well, I am glad to be home from Wisconsin. It was good to see everyone but I missed my home. I will post photos from our trip later today.  Till then I will get back to work– I missed my sewing machine sooo much but more than that I missed my Cessie and Etta! I cannot wait to get them back from Leslie who ever so kindly volunteered to dog sit. 

Isn’t she wonderful?


Meet Olive. She is a 5 year old English Bulldog with a smidge of Boxer and she is so super beautiful, Mimi Green collar or not!

This happy girl is wearing the 'Jewel' collar.  I love seeing my creations in action! I wonder if dogs really know when they are looking good in a new collar or leash. I swear that my dogs do. Etta has a serious freak out when I take hers off and she seemed so happy last time I gave her a new collar. She was acting so grateful and loving! 

I guess we will never know though!

More pups!

Meet Charlie:

And Bella:

They live with their Momma Linee in Vail, Arizona.

It is HOT in the desert right now, I can attest to that, so Linee says that Charlie has been taking daily dips in the pool and guess what? His collar is totally still looking good! Yahoo! No one had tested that out yet, I knew that they would survive the wash, but my pups have never even seen a large body of water much less gone for a swim. I am so happy to hear that Charlie's new collar is fitting in well with his doggie lifestyle! hehe.

Aren't they so super sweet? I have to ask Linee if they go swimming together. I bet they are good friends. And Bella looks just like my Etta! They could be sisters they look so much alike. The floppy ears, the awesome shinny black coat, how slim they are. I have to put their photos up together, but I am such a bad mommy — I have one million photos of Cessie up on my blog but only one of Etta.

My very good friend Kim Donald came over Monday and did a photo shoot with Etta and Cessie. I am excited to post the photos, they came out so beautiful! Etta is truly a model and her very sexy under-bite proves it! She loved the camera, or I should say, the camera loved Etta 😉 Her photo shoot will be up very soon…..

I think they can’t possibly get any cuter…

And then Nicole in Pasadena, MD sends me a photo of her dog in a Riley collar

I forgot to ask her name, but isn't this dog a doll?  I can't wait to get this up on my new website that is sooooo close to being finished. I am dying for everyone to see it!

UPDATE: from Nicole " Her name is Bodhi (after the great zen master Bodhidharma).  We found her a couple of months ago at the pound.  She was so mellow among all the chaos, the name seemed to fit."
Thank you Nicole! I love names with story behind them. Bodhi is so super sweet!
