I am very exciting to show you my very unusual, quirky, whimsical, something you may never see again.....dachshund. Vintage Dachshund to be exact.
How cute is this? Now, without scrolling down the page too quick to get a better look, what exactly do you think this is anyway, other than a dog? Any guesses? Don't worry if you guess wrong...heck, I may not even know what this is to be used for......
Here is my new to me, little vintage "Sophie" dog. I purchased this from an Etsy seller. She has some really cute and unusual vintage items. Click here to view her store. The seller had this titled "Far Out Dachshund Pitcher" and at first glance, the title fits. And really, from the picture, I could see how this could be a little tea pot with the little tea cups. And let me say, I had to have it....HAD to have it!
This came with 5 of the 6 original cups. Too bad all of the little cups were not there, but that did not stop me from purchasing this cutie. After it arrived in the mail, I am second guessing its purpose. It really may not be a tea pot at all.
OK seriously, is this not hysterical. Sorry, but without the little cups, this looks like the poor pup has it's teats on backwards. Did I just say that? Teats? Sorry, but if you can not see it, check your glasses!
The little hat comes off and the bottom part is cork. Upon closer inspection, I am seriously thinking this might be a liquor decanter. Just pop the hat off, add the booze and put the hat back in place. What do you think?
What ever its purpose, it is old and vintage. It does have some crazing, but the charm of this unusual little dog was too much for me to resist. I just love the polka dot hanky around it's neck and the little hat with the red bow, you know how I like red.
Did any of you happen to notice the fabric I used for the background? I purchased this at a estate sale for $2.00, and really thought it was just a bundle of fabric. When I got it home and had time to inspect it further, I discovered it was a curtain panel. I think the print is so cute. I am saving this to maybe make something out of...what? I don't know....it is going on my to-do pile. We will see what I can come up with. Any suggestions from any of you crafty girls?
Have a great week everyone! Thanks for stopping by and sharing all of your wonderful treasures and vintage finds here with us today. I just re-read this post and realized how many questions I asked. Don't worry, you don't have to answer them, just answer them to yourself. What was I thinking?
