Recently I sold an item to a fellow blogger, JVW Home .. it was an altered journal in a vintage dog theme. We struck up a conversataion through e-mails and she told me she is doing a guest room all in a dog theme, and purchased the journal from me for that room. I was shocked, as just a couple of years ago I completed a guest/sitting room in a vintage dog theme, too! We agreed to blog about our finds and prizes, and this is what I'd like to share. I had so much fun hunting antique shops Ebay, garage sales, etc. all for that perfect dog to complete the look. My family continues to remember this room when they are in search of a gift for me. Here is the room, and some of my favorite canine friends!
This shows a vintage desk and chair, and a shelf above which holds many dog treasures
This chippy miniature armoir stands about 15 inches tall, and houses many of my vintage pewter figurines
Vintage tankard, cabinet card, bisque dog smoking a pipe, and a photo of my "Bella" when she was 6 months old.
Another miniature shelf that hangs on the wall, chippy and distressed which holds old postcards, photos, celluloid dogs, cast iron and bisque figurines, and a photo of my dog Shag-Rag from when I was a child.
Up close of some of the mentioned above treasures. One of my favorites is the little cast iron bad leader, wearing a red shirt and holding a baton.
The large concrete dog who greets all who enter.
The sitting area.
This old armoire not only hides the TV, but gives me even more space to hold dog treasures.
An old lithograph by one of my very favorite artists, Sir Edwin Landseer. I love this old Adirondack frame.
The cutest little vintage dog book my husband gave me as a gift years ago. He hand twisted the little wire book easel, too.
