Leather or Wood

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I think summer is just around the corner at last. Sunday was lovely and sunny, it always puts me in holiday mode which is a pain because I know I can't have one yet .

It's P's birthday coming up and I'm thinking of getting a new implement for us. It always makes me smile when I buy an implement for his birthday or Christmas because although I'm buying him the gift, it's obvious who's going to be on the receiving end of it so it always seems a bit unfair in a way because subconsciously I'm shopping for myself. It's not the only or main gift, I hasten to add, so I'll just suppress that little guilt feeling and get on with the search for something appropriate.

I've been casually trawling the web for some ideas, popped along to Cane-Iac and I spotted these paddles, I'd forgotten how lovely patty's drawings are, we've got a Santa Claus one but it only comes out at Christmas.

So leather or wood? Not sure yet, I'm leaning towards leather. Its a bit like shopping isn't it, only we're not talking boots or skirts here, we're talking about something which is hopefully going have a considerable impact on my derriere so I need to get it right.

No major events over the weekend, family put paid to my wayward aspirations, still enjoyed it though, always nice to see family.

Those are so pretty! Can't wait to see what you picked!

I love Patty's drawings too! I always like the idea of wood but I think I would get more enjoyable use from leather. A little wooden paddle goes a long way!

Ronnie: Good to hear you got some family time. That's always great.

And let us know you chose.

And, yes, it's like shopping for yourself, but, hey, nothing wrong with that. I'm sure when you buy it you're thinking of the good use it will get in his hands and on your bottom.

Whichever you choose it will be wonderful to picture it landing on your naughty derriere, Ronnie! Maybe we could be treated to a photo of what your bum looks like after its meeting with the preferred implement.

I suspect a leather strap might be more effective on your bottom...what do you think?

Leather, leather, leather.

Don't know why but leather anyway.

How about a beautiful belt?

I vote for leather. It's what Ron almost always chooses.

Little Butterfly, PK, FD, Aristole, Poppy, Hermione -

Thank you all so much. I'm definitely leaning towards leather but I don't know what. We have John's paddle, 2 straps, the pig slapper, courtesy of PK, P's belt, what else is there? Maybe another paddle.
I'd like something different.

I favor wood, always has been my favorite. I'm just not a leather paddle fan. I like the impact and the sound of wood. And the after feel is good for a nice length of time.

What about the leather at the end of a riding crop? That will certainly make your bottom sting,Ronnie, and Mrs.A tells me that you won't want to sit on your bottom for some time afterwards! The sting...again according to Mrs.A....is exquisite.

I love Patti's drawings, and I hadn't seen these. They are very nice indeed. Didn't know they were on any paddles, now I do1 Can't help you with the implement, we don't own any leather. I can tell you that I have bought shoes in two different colors because I couldn't decide which I needed more! ;-)
Happy Birhtday P!

I like wood! Heheheeeee And those paddles are lovely!

Bumtickler - P's more of a wood man so not sure. Thanks for stopping by.

Aristotle - Have the crop with the little leather bit on the end and yes, very effective :)

Elysia - Cane-Iac have more on their website. If you need to buy any implements, take a look, they are all good quality and Master and Mistress Cane-Iac are very helpful and give excellent service.
I've done exactly the same, bought the same shoes n two different colours. That's it then you've settled it for me, thanks. I have to buy P two implements one in wood and one in leather :)

Thanks all.

Ronnie: I don't really know what implements you own, so hard to vote. Why not try out a European version of a carpet beater. Could be a lot of fun dusting in your house.

hestia said...

oh wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, I certainly do love those drawings... absolutely gorgeous... so if it's gonna be an item on the wall just for beauty then certainly I'd go for wood...

love, h

Red - Thanks will take a look at one.

Lessa - Sorry had to delete my last comment, mistakes :) They are so lovely and I would love to hang one of them on our bedroom wall.

Thanks both.

When there is a choice involved, choose both!

ronnie said...

OBB - That's the conclusion I've come to. Thanks.
