Scotty Motto Prints





As most of you know, I am the mother to a wonderful Scotty Dog, Doogs for short, and have been collecting Scottish Terrier things for years. Many, many posts ago I wrote about my love of antique motto prints, however never shared the small collection of my Scotty Dog motto prints. So, here are just a few. They make me happy with their humorous and catchy words of friendship, patience and love. What are your favorite motto prints?

Hi Becky,

These are so cute and the fact that they have little scotty dogs makes them all the more you. I don't have any motto prints, but I do have tons of signs. They have food mottos! LOL - Milk, Bread, pumpkin pie :)

Color me green with envy over those Scottie prints. OK, not really. Cause I love that YOU have them! Neat that two of your favorites--Scotties and mottos--are together. Have a super Sunday. I'll email later today.

Awww those sayings are so cute! Scotties are adorable! Especially Doogs! Thanks for sharing. You have such beautiful collections! I was looking at your flickr photos. I could look at your photos all day. Your house is like a picture out of a magazine! :)

Your scotty pictures are so cute and so is your little doggy. Where did you find them all? You have some great collections there, Becky. Have a great day!

I think your motto prints are adorable! I love Scottie dogs anyway on anything. I have several motto prints, been collecting them for years. I have them hanging in my bathroom. I have mostly mother mottos but honestly the graphics are what draws me to them.
Thank you for sharing yours!
Thanks for stopping by and how DOES everyone fit in blogging time??

Hi Becky,
What a great collection you have! I do not have any motto prints, but I may just have to keep my eye out for them.

How come you can show us a new collection of something or other every day? Are you ever going to run out or will you just start new ones?

I love all the scottie dog prints. We have just one sketch of a Westie, poor Winston is feeling a bit less loved than Mr. Doogs. Guess I better get on that, for Winston's sake. Thanks for the inspiration.

These are just too cute!!! And they are ALMOST as cute as Doogs himself. I ordered a series of wonderful and simply charts to stitch with sayings on them by Blue Ribbon Designs. I can't wait until I get them.

Bekcy, I love your Scotty prints...they make me smile too. They are the sweetest little dogs, they were my Mom's favorite and she had several through the years.

I have a small collecton of motto prints, I love the sentiments and the beautiful graphics. I think my mother and friend ones are my favorites.

I collect cookie cutters and yesterday I found the sweetest one of a Scotty...I'd love for you to have it, let me know if you would like it for your collection. Linda

So cute! I've never run across any of these before. I'll keep my eyes open now.

Deb said...

I love your Scotty Dog collection! Your vintage prints are wonderful ... you must have lots of fun looking for items to add to your collection :-} Doogs is great inspiration ~ he is precious.

vintage twist said...

I adore Scotty dogs and these prints are just gorgeous.

Chris said...

I came across your blog and just love it! Your home is beautiful and I love all your collections. It's a good thing we don't go shopping together because we'd be trying to buy the same treasures!

Tiffany said...

How sweet! I'm always drawn to the victorian friendship or mother themed pieces.

One day I'll have to splurge and get a few! It seems to be quite the hot thing in Washington, I never see them for less than 25 - 30.00 in our shops.

Most of my signs in my home are in Italian or French. I'll have to take some photos and blog about them!

We used to have a Scotty cookie cutter in our family - a treasure! This year I'm trying to find some for my son and nephews (which led me to this website/blog). Scotties rule, all other dogs drool!!! (well, okay - Westies are our cousins ...)
