Welcome to Vintage Thingies Thursday. Don't worry, you are at the right place, just a new look! Scroll down to my earlier post and take advantage of a discounted rate on a new blog makeover for yourself offered by Danielle.

Now that the holidays are over, and things are settling down from the fast pace of the holiday season, please consider joining us on Thursdays. We really have a great time showing our vintage treasures here in Blog land.

If you are visiting and would like to join us, please do. It is very easy! All you have to do is (1)do a post about something vintage. (2)Visit all the participates and leave a comment. (3)Link in with the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post. (4)Be sure to either include the VTT button in your post and refer back to my blog. Don't be shy, we have fun every week. Join us if you can.

This week, I have a couple of vintage planters to show you. Of course these vintage planters are nothing other than cute puppies......seeing how I am a dog lover at heart.




How cute is this little guy? I purchased him off of eBay a few years back. He really does not look like any dog we have had in the past, but with his cute little polka dot bow, and smiling face, he was hard to resist. The bottom is marked Reliable Glassware & Potters 1956. The pencil mark price on one of his feet is $2.80. I paid a considerable amount over the foot price!


This next little dog planter is one of my favorites. This little guy is a Boston Terrier Pup. My cousin, Carie has the sweetest little Boston Terrier named Levi. When I found this planter at a flea market, I knew I had to have him. He reminds me of my cousin's cute pup, Levi. He has no markings or stamps on the bottom.


Now, can you guess what's next? I found this adorable little puppy at a flea market in November. The lady whom I purchased this from was a dachshund lover as well and owned 3 of them herself. This little dachshund planter of course represents my two pups. The bonus for me was that this is pink.....pink for my two girls! I am sure if it had been blue, I would have bought it anyway, but I was glad it was pink. I think it is so cute! The bottom is stamped Japan.


Finally, this little pup was purchased off eBay, and I truly thought it was a planter. However, once I received it, I think it was more like a dresser caddy. It has a spot for maybe a wallet in the back, and the little basket in the front that looks like it would hold change. It really does not matter what it is supposed to be used for, it reminds me of my Sophie and I just love it. I have this sitting on the window ledge in my laundry room, and because I spend so much time in that room, I enjoy it often. This little pup always brings a smile.

I hope you enjoyed a look at my vintage puppy planters. They don't hold any plants, but they are great for catching dust! Be sure to link in below on Mr. Linky and show us some of your close to the heart treasures. Have a great week!

  11. Those doggies are just the cutest things. Ebay, huh....I'm going to check that area out, and look for corgis...probably none, but it'll be fun to look. They look like they're in perfect shape. What little gems.

  22. Hello Suzanne, I enjoyed talking to you and we are happy to be able to make arrangements for June.

    I wasn't aware of your vintage things event today or I would have played along. I did show my vintage dishes and could have linked to you but such is life. Next week I'll play too if you do this weekly. I do have vintage coming out of my ears. Come to think of it I'm vintage. LOL.

    I love your doggie planters and they look familiar to me. That means I'm old enough to remember them. I believe they are from the 50's.

    Hugs...Jeanne

  26. By now all your blogger friends know what you love the most. Any kind of a small for-legged animal, real or not. That is okay too, as we all have own taste.

  27. This is the first time I have done this. What fun! Saw it done by Jan at littlepinkhouses.blogspot.com and thought it would be a great idea because I'm always buying old things.
    Love the dogs!

  33. Hi Suzanne, I stopped by to tell you I will be sending you our agreement tomorrow. This week has gone a little haywire and I did not get it mailed. I didn't want you to be concerned about it.

    Thank you for your sweet comments about out grands. They are all such sweet children. We are blessed.

    Hugs...Jeanne

  35. Just wanted to add that the tail on the last one is like that so you can put your rings and jewelery on it too. My mother had quite of few "ring holders" and we learned early that anything with a point in the air was great for rings.

  36. That is a cute one! I have a vintage dog planter, and will have to take a photo now. :)

Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!

Suzanne
