the great wall of scotties

For quite some time I have been collecting vintage pictures and vintage motto prints of Scottie dogs and other terriers. Some have been gifts from sweet friends, but most have been purchased on eBay, ETSY and at antique stores. There are many still that need to make it onto the “Great Wall of Scotties”, but for now, this is a healthy start.

A few of my favorite artists are Morgan Dennis and Lucy Dawson. You can find these prints and mottos from around 20.00 – 45.00.

How cute! Scotties are just timeless
I have loved them for years (and they are many). Fiona and Dugs are so cute. They must feel at home going up the stairs and seeing their relatives all over the wall...sandi

You have some of the most awesome collectables I have ever seen. WOW! I love your pups. The "Listen" one is my favorite because my yorkies do the same thing!

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

Scotties are such sweet little dogs and your are precious. I just love Mr. Doogs and Miss Fiona!! And I still am enjoying my precious little pillow you made for me with the little Scottie button on it. I love your wall of scotties. It is wonderful. I will have to be on the lookout for a scottie print. You never now when you might run up on something like that out junkin'. Thanks for sharing. Love & blessings from NC!

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

i like the picture of the two scotties together tilting their heads the same way!

Lallee said...

You have a wonderful collection! Scottie art just never loses its charm. Your staircase is the perfect place for displaying them. One thing my home lacks is wall space. I will have to admire your collection!
Missing you, dear Becky!

Susan said...

When I saw your title, I couldn't imagine what it meant; I pictured Hadrian's wall, all scotties end to end!
Have a happy day!
I had a scottie friend named Robert the Bruce. We all called him 'Robbie'.

Pondside said...

They are so sweet! I have a wee bit of Cairn art, but it could easily slide over to 'collection'!

Liz said...

Oh, they are all so cute! I started collecting the cottage prints because of your collection. :) Boy, are they hard to find! Of course you have done a fantastic job of displaying your scotties. The staircase is perfect. :)

Becky,

I love it! The Scottie is such an adorable breed. It's going to be a hard to decide when and if I get another dog. I dearly loved my Boxer and miss him terribly. I always said there could never be another breed for me but your Scotties may have changed my mind. ; )
Blessings
Sheila

Miss Jean said...

Dang, Becky! I see some I don't have! I have to start looking some more!!!! I love the one with the two with the googly eyes. Makes me laugh!

Myrna said...

Love it!! I've been on the look out for King Charles Cavelier pics and figurenes (had forgotten to check ebay)..harder to find than Scotties..seems like I'm always coming across Scotties~for cheap, too! Tell ya what, now that I know you collect 'em I'll pick them up FOR YOU!! ;-)
I love your scottie collection!!
Blessings!
Myrna

Linda said...

This is wonderful.. give me your address and when you will be out of town! lol... No, really I can't think of a better person to have these wonderful pictures and share them with us. (literally) Love that you make other people smile at the puppies that some of us see every day.. and not always with an approving smile. Thanks.

Linda said...

P.S. I forgot to tell you I visited Sweet Pea this summer(she says hello) and bought a metal version of the two "listen" scotties. It sits in the middle of my dining room table.( sometimes the fur sisters do also.Bad, scottie!))

Deborah said...
