Vintage Thingie Thursday: Vintage Dachshund Book & Figurine

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. 

I always seem to be on the lookout for cute vintage dachshund things when I am out and about. Last week, I was out looking for something else all together different, and wouldn't you know it, I saw and purchased several vintage dachshund treasures.  You know if I was looking for these types of treasures, I certainly would not have seen anything...always when you are looking for something else! However, I am not complaining.

This cute little paperback book was a real find for me. I have seen this on ebay several times, but did not want to pay the price it was at....but this one was only .50 cents. It does have a little bit of damage, but not enough to leave it on the shelf. There is a resale shop close to me that always has the  neatest things, and children's books are one of the many things they always have in abundance. Vintage children books that is!!

This page really cracks me up, because if you really knew how things go around here, it is the dogs that want on the table...and in fact, have been known to GET ON the table. When we bring in groceries, Sophie knows grocery sacks means lots of goodies. I have lost a package of hamburger or two in her lifetime....just sayin'

Now, this is more like it....more like what really goes on around my house!! Total out of control Dachshund fun!!

I also was able to pick this cutie up for some change. She reminds me of Sophie and I knew she had to come home with me. This little figurine does not have a stamp or marking, but she is cute....crazing and all!

Have a wonderful week and fantastic weekend......I guess it is time to start planning for the holidays.....I am afraid to blink for fear they will be here before I am ready! I plan to spend the rest of the week opening up an Etsy shop.....VERY excited about that!!! Lots of goodies to put in that shop.....just in time for holiday shopping!! Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!!

  18. Hi Suzanne -- I LOVE when you show dachshund treasures. I think I've told you before -- they were the only breed I was not terrified of when I was a little girl; all my parents' friends seemed to have one or two dachshunds.
    LOVE the illustrations in that book. Wonderful.

  19. Funny story about Sophie getting the hamburger meat! Cute book too!

    Thank you for hosting!



Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!
