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~
