Vintage Thingie Thursday: A Wienerful Gift!

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you have a love for vintage things, have come to the right place. We have a really 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 on display that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.

About a week or so ago, my very sweet friend Patti left a package for me on my front porch. I was not home at the time she stopped by, but I certainly had a sweet find when I returned home.

My friend had gone to an estate sale and found this adorable vintage dachshund salt and pepper set. Is this not the sweetest?? It really brought a smile to my heart!

I love how this looks like my Sophie.....I have seen these before online and they are always going for more than what I want to pay with shipping.....these will have a very good home.

One of the neat things is these still had the original cork stoppers. I so often find cute salt and pepper shakers but the stoppers are missing.

Here is the mark on the bottom...made in Japan, I don't recall the symbol above the letters, maybe someone out there is familiar with that.

And....if you are a doxie fanatic like myself, you might enjoy this video of this couple's dachshund item(s) collection. there are many vintage pieces there, and things from all over the world that I may never find was informative and very neat to see.

I did manage to spot a couple of things that I do have in my own collection....made me feel a bit better!!! If you want to view it, just click the video!!

Thanks for all the emails about my Tuesday post and your concern for me....I really am fine.....just adjusting to many changes that I really did not care to make or really do not want to adjust to or with.....guess you could say it is a good dose of reality and life......this too shall just will take a bit of time.

Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!!

  21. Hi Suzanne! I saw some rescue doxies on the news and thought of you! They were cute. Until my knee started giving me a fit I would walk at the middle school track and listen to a little long hair fellow chase me by his fence! I always think of you! :)
    These treasures are so cute and your friend was so sweet to give you that s/p set! I just love it! Take care and hope your weekend is wonderful. I am trying to catch p with everyone! :)

  22. FYI - hard to tell from the picture, but I am 90% sure that is the mark for UCAGCO.


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!
