In Keeping With Scottie Tradition....

Geez...sure seems like all I do is talk about Scottie things these days! So I will continue to carry on with a few more doggy-does that share the house with Dughall, Fiona and Socks.
My friend Kathy gifted me with the wonderful bookends - one that sits on top of the books. Oh and why not?....who wants to hold up books all day anyways?
My grandmother's mantel clock is quite at home with the menagerie.
Old things really do make a house a home.

We love our critters! My love bird is all of a sudden harassing out Schnauzer Zeke....... Go figure. Zeke just gets up and moves..... I am so thankful that he is a beautiful passive dog! They have been raised together.....10 years now..... Cannot imagine life without them!

I don't even have Scotties and I love the little scottie tchotkes I see everywhere! Every time I see one in an antique mall I think of you:>)I always enjoy seeing the Scottie decorations in your home.

Vee said...

Looks as if you are following Kim's advice for today (Daisy Cottage). Why not place a bookend on top of the books? Indeed, whyever not? Lovely vignette!

Love all the Scottie things and like your mantlepiece, the books etc. Having a clock from Grandma is special.

I love your doggies and I don't mind one bit when they're on your blog! And, I would say the scottie bookends are a very good (and maybe rare) find! Your mantle looks wonderful and it is the little old things that make a house!

Hi Becky,
I was at Homegoods this week and they had black and white Scottie bathroom decor, i.e. toothbrush holder, soap dispenser, soap dish, it was extremely inexpensive, like $3.99 to $5.99. It was adorable, of course it made me think of you my sweet friend.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

I love all the Scottie stuff. I'm so mad at myself for not buying a Scottie door stop in a stop in California a couple of years ago.

Having had a scotty, it's heart warming to visit your's. Miss Katy was The Best snake dog on the ranch. I miss her terribly. Do you know of anyone with rescue scotties or puppies in far N Calif?
