Vintage Thingie Thursday : Vintage Dachshunds

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you have a love for vintage things, well....you have come to the right place. We have a "dog-gone" good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to
read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies being showed that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.

As usual, time found me running through my house wondering what to show you this week. I simply forgot it was Wednesday.....go figure! I do feel some what better this week, things are still mighty stressful around our house, but hey...we are breathing and living and what greater blessing can there be.

Now, I am sure you will be mighty surprised when I tell you I have a few vintage "dachshund" treasures....ahem.....no? well......lets pretend you were surprised. Okay?

This little sweetie reminds me of Bailey......the baby. She is the same coloring as this little salt shaker.....I found this one day at a thrift store, and there was only one. No matter.....it is loved beyond measure.

My daughter and I found a antique thrift store today and we had no idea it was even there. That in and of itself is a big deal at my house, I thought we knew where all the treasure shops were. Anyway, we spotted this little guy. There are markings on the bottom and back that say "Japan"
He may be a bit strange....but he fits in at our house rather well. I like him.

This beauty was an estate sale find a few months ago. This is made out of some type of stone and when I spotted this little dog, I snatched it up rather quickly!

Now, these are cracker trays. I have showed you the orange-ish one before, I think...but today, my daughter purchased the little green one for herself at the new found treasure store. So cute.

This is a planter, and I like this a lot, it holds my empty bobbin spools when they come out of my sewing machine.

This is one of my favorites. This is a vintage pin cushion. I think I paid $1.00 for it because it is supposed to have a ring of flowers around its neck, but only one remain today. Again, that did not matter to me, still cute to a dachshund lover!!

Here is a goodwill find, and I am not so sure it is really vintage, but none the less, it sits on my desk and holds important notes to myself that I don't want to lose. Working dachshunds are really the best kind to have.

Finally, the most unusual little dachshund of all....this is a vintage liquor decanter. I love this one too because it looks just like my Sophie-girl. I don't use this of course, but I sure enjoy looking at this little dog. Hope you enjoyed all my vintage dachshund dogs today. I really don't set out to find these on my outings, they just sorta find me. Somehow, I think they know they will have a forever home with me and my three living dachshund girls.

And....I'd like to give you the heads up on next weeks post. Today was half-off day at Goodwill....and well, the most highly unusual thing happened while my daughter and I were there. I'm saving that for next week......you won't want to miss it.....things like this don't happen often at all.

Have a great weekend everyone!!! It is super hot here, so I am wishing for a lot of inside activities....but I don't think that will happen. We have to move my daughter this weekend back home, and well, we know that is not a inside activity! Take care~

  2. Love your doggies! Real and otherwise. :-)

    We had our own "Fritz" for 15+ years ... miss him still. His nickname was "The Little Nazi", he was a real pistol when he wanted something his own way.

    Thanks for hosting this great weekly event,
    Candy

  3. I love this post Suzanne! Love all of your doggie things, so adorable. Is the stone one a Native American "fetish"? It's wonderful. I've just begun the hunt for vintage Golden Retriever stuff, so far zip ... wah!

    Happy VTT,
    Sally

  16. Do not understand why you need this type dachshunds when you have three wild ones for real. I like the pink planter best. Lord help you and those dogs!

  17. What treasures each of those are. I have an English setter and I too have a few dog trinkets that remind me of him.

  18. Those are some amazing doggies, Suzanne. I think the carved one is some kind of agate. The very first is my favorite.

  19. verrry cute..my fav is the pincushion one! x

  20. We think the white stone dog may be onyx. It used to be mined in the US but now most of it comes from Mexico. I have the twin to your wire doxie sitting on my desk! Mine is more golden toned.
    I found this wonderful antique stuffed Doxie I bought for a friend. He was too sweet to leave my house. And of course we are overflowing with Saint items from all eras. Good Newf memorabilia is more difficult to find.

  21. Such wonderful little doxie dogs. We collected them too, when we had a Dachshund named Oscar. He's gone now and I have put the little ceramic dogs away somewhere. I think I will pull them out and look at them. I still have a door stop that is in honor of Oscar. They make such cute decor in the house.
    I love the spiral one for your desk. I like practical dogs. The little pink, stretch planter that you keep bobbins in is adorable.

  22. Love that last little dachshund with the liquor cups attached! What a clever design! Sophie, Dora, and Bailey are adorable! How you stay cool this week.

  23. Love your collection of dachshund. I saw one of those cute liquor bottles with the cups but the lady wanted big bucks for it. Can't wait for more stories of your GW shopping!! Happy VTT

  29. The cracker trays look like they could hold hotdogs/buns too, for a picnic! You've got some goodies there! Say - did you ever do any needlework for the doxie patterns I drew up for you so long ago?

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!
