INSPIRATION BEHIND THIS URN:
Bailey was a Dachshund and a Parrot Head – that is, a huge Jimmy Buffet fan. He traveled everywhere with JP, the man who couldn’t bear to eat in a restaurant without his friend by his side. When JP left this earth, Bailey moved on to comfort his wonderful sister, where together they were able to find the ability to love again. Bailey has rejoined JP, helping him watch over the woman they both adore.

Real People. Real Smiles.
Ten years ago I went through a horrible tragedy when my best friend, little brother and only sibling was murdered in his home 9 hours after I left his side. JP, my brother, was a wonderful person that everyone loved, and was a HUGE Jimmy Buffet fan. John Paul’s love of his life was his dog, Bailey. He took Bailey everywhere. JP would only eat at restaurants that allowed Bailey to join him and was taken on every road trip, boat ride, or excursion that John Paul went on. Bailey even attended well over 60 Jimmy Buffet concerts! He was a well known “Parrot Head”. After my brother’s death Bailey was all I had left of him and I treasured every moment with him. I was once again destroyed when Bailey came down with a brain cancer that was in-operable. I was lost once again but wanted to give Bailey a final resting place that my brother would be more then proud of. I contacted Alyson because she had already made three urns for my past baby’s for me that I had picked off of her website. I loved them so much because she would incorporate my dog’s picture and coloring in her design.
With Bailey’s urn, I knew I wanted something beyond special. After telling Alyson the story of my brother and how important Bailey was to him she suggested I let her come up with a special design. One that was not on the website but would instead be made custom just for Bailey and his many adventures. The urn she came up with was beyond beautiful and could not have been any more perfect! He is chillin’ under the palm trees with his Jimmy Buffet beads around his neck and looks s000 happy. I cried and cried and cried! I could not have asked for anything better. It was so perfect and such an amazing way to honor both my brother and Bailey. I have it proudly displayed in my house for all to see alongside Bailey’s cousins (my baby’s). I could not be happier and am so blessed that I was able to find Alyson and her amazing talent. She puts a piece of her heart in every urn and it shows. She has found a lifelong customer in me and would NEVER use anyone else! I can absolutely guarantee you that if you purchase one of Alyson’s urns, you will be extremely pleased and want to show it off. She is an amazing person with a wealth of compassion and truly cares about every work of art she touches!
