Vintage Thingie Thursday: Vintage Ponies & Giveaway Announced

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you have a love for vintage things, 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, your post needs to include:
1. the LINK back to my blog and or the button for Vintage Thingie Thursday. I have been visiting lately and when I click on a link, there is no mention of Vintage Thingie Thursday or my blog. 

2. make sure your post has something to do with something vintage. All advertisements will be deleted. If you'd like to advertise on my blog, email me, we can work that out. No more free advertising by linking in.  Shame on those who do this, nothing is free in life.

Starting this month, if you fail to either have the button on your blog, or in your blog post and/or have not linked back to my blog in your post. I will delete your link. 

It is not fair to those who follow the rules to allow others not to do so. I am not being ugly, but rules are all aspects of life. So if you find your link removed, check your post, you need to see why that happened. Hopefully, I won't have to do that. 


First, I'd like to thank you for all the comments on my post last week, my mom was thrilled that so many said so many nice things. She tends to worry over aging, but to me, she looks just as beautiful as always. Your comments really made her matter I decided to show her on "vintage day" :)

Today, I have a couple of vintage ponies. These are from the 60's. I remember a lot of my friends had horses, and loved to collect them. I myself never did have a horse of my own, but I did have a few ponies that I loved. I had a couple of smaller ones too that I used to keep in a little shelf, but who knows what happened to those.

I think they are cute.....and I have them on a curio shelf in my "bear" room. Why? Well, because they go with bears....right?

Here is the mark on the one that has the bridle attached.

And this unusual mark is for the other one. Who knows where these came from originally. I certainly can not remember.

Finally, it is the last of March and time to announce the giveaway for this month. I took all the participants in Vintage Thingie Thursday, and all the comments I received from these post. And drew out of a hat (bowl) haha

The winner this month is :  

Anna, from Cottage 6 Studio. Congratulations!!

Anna, you have won this gift set, which includes a super cute apron, a tart pan, mini grater, and the recipe for Chocolate Raspberry Tart with Chocolate Cream. I really hope you like this little surprise!! Send me a email with your address and I will get this out to you soon.

Next week, we start a new month, and a new giveaway. Keep playing along, you just might be next!!

Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!!!


  1. I think your wild horse is telling the other one to get off that pedestal and lets go play. Thanks for sharing and hosting.

  2. I remember seeing horses like that on dressers back in the '60s! Very neat! And your Mom is so beautiful...I know you're glad she is online! ♥ I'm linked again this week! Thanks! ♥

  3. Your horses are so unique. I love seeing vintage statues. The older ones were so much better then what is produced today.

  4. Well first off, I goofed and it did not post right. It has just been one of those days you can relate to. I am sure you have things stashed everywhere, but I do not recall seeing your little horses. I have seen them in antique malls but not exactly like theses. The one with the saddle looks kinda like Trigger.

  5. Your vintage ponies are adorable. As you must know by now, I love horses and have equestrian art all over my cottage. Congratulations to Cottage 6 Studio! Happy VTT!!

    Susan and Bentley

  6. Nice Palominos! I was one of those girls who wanted a horse and only got the plastic kind. I still have some of them, including Misty of Chincoteague. I should post pictures next Thursday for VTT.

    P.S. I'm having issues with my Google profile so please forgive me if this gets posted 17 times.

    P.P.S. I'm giving up and going anonymous. This is Patty from PipStitch.

  7. Congrats to Anna! Those horses look like great collectables!

  8. Congrats to Anna too and I love small statues of everyday animals. I have a few cats and did have one little dog the granddaughter got hold of. Take care.

  9. Cute little horses.:)

    It is so hard for me to imagine ANYone playing in a meme and not linking it to that person . It just is about the rudest thing I know of in Blogland. I don't blame you one bit.

  10. Those horse are indeed cute. My youngest son collects horses. They are interesting markings thee too. Congrats to your winner Suzanne.

  11. Oh my goodness, I can't believe I won! You had me at chocolate raspberry! But seriously, what a great prize. That apron is beautiful! I love it. And it was a great way to end a frustrating day, too. I love your post, too. I wish I had some of my childhood toys. There's something about these horses that is so 60's, they're great. I'll email you right away!!!

  12. Love the horses. Thanks for hosting today!

  13. Happy Vintage Thursday Suzanne! I loved the horses - they look so familiar!

  16. Just found your blog and so glad I have. Playing along with Vintage Thingie Thursday, it looks fun. Love your ponies and congratulations to your winner! xxx

  17. Those horse figures are so cute. I had a small collection when I was little and I have no idea what happened to them. I agree with LV, the one with the saddle does look like trigger!!! ~~Sherry~~

  18. I have a collection of bone china horses that I had as a child over 50 years ago. They're in a box in the basement...somewhere! I need to find them!!

  19. Very cute! I love seeing all of your treasures.

  20. I could not find the permalink button, but my post is up.

  21. Hi Suzanne, I linked late but finally made it. I love your sweet ponies and I truly love horses too. we did ride our work horses when we lived on a farm. I was small. They were so big our legs stuck straight out. Great memories.
    Congrats to Anna for winning your sweet giveaway.

    Have a great day.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  22. Love the ponies! How cute! I never was into horses but had girlfriends who were. Thanks for hosting! hugs, Linda

  23. Congrats to Anna!!! Thanks so much for hosting.


  24. reminds me of some dogs my grandfather had on his dresser!

  25. I love looking at watermarks and labels. They add to the ceramic figurines. I suppose it's like a quilt label or signature on a painting. I have a few horses too. Loved seeing yours. I thought you had to have three to be a collection! HA! HA! :)


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!
