REMINDER: We have several new friends linking in for Vintage Thingie Thursday. I want to remind everyone that the link for VTT goes up on Wednesday evening and will run through Friday morning (early) then the link will be closed. I know it is hard to get in the habit of posting earlier than later, but try and get your link in before early Friday morning. I have to close the link to keep spam out of the link. Thanks!! And I know Wednesday is not Thursday, here...but it is Thursday for our friends who live on the other side of the globe!!
I have another dachshund at my house....but this time, he only wants to hold the food, not eat the food! I found this a while back and had to have it! Not that he is particularly knock-out adorable....but well, it was just one of those things that had to come home with me!
I am sure this was made by a little lady back in the 70's when ceramics was so popular and all the rage. I may be wrong, he might of been manufactured by a company, but he has no markings and just looks to be homemade. Would you just look at those spots, who knew back in the 70's that dapple dogs would be all the rage in a few years!
I certainly will use this little guy to hold crackers or maybe olives at my next party. I am sure you are thinking that this is a little large for a olive tray....but if you knew my husband and son....they can eat "cans" of olives at a time. So with that in mind, this really is about the right size to accommodate those two olive loving guys! Did I mention I hate olives...can't stand them...just thought you might need to know that!
But I do love this sweet face, and the spots are a favorite of mine as well. This little guy sits on my window sill in my laundry room.... He keeps a good eye on Sophie, Dora and Bailey....reminds them who is boss....me!
And speaking of the 70's. I found this cup at Goodwill not long ago. No markings at all. But I distinctly remember my grandmother had kitchen items in this pattern. I know she had salt and pepper shakers, and a kitchen trivet. When I saw this pattern, I immediately thought of my sweet grandma and had to have this cup. I could not find this pattern on-line. I am thinking it came from Sears or Penny's or maybe even a grocery store. I just know it evoked warm memories of my grandma's kitchen and I am really enjoying my coffee in the mornings out of this mug...what better way to start the day!
Well, I usually don't find too many things to show from the 1970's but this was a rare moment that day and so I included these two on one post...even if it seems a bit random! Have a great weekend everyone and a wonderful Vintage Thingie Thursday....and guess what? The weather is warming up here and you know what that means??? Yard sales.....and treasures to be found!!! Can you tell I am excited?
