A favorite antiquing place to visit is the town of Sutter Creek, California. There are several wonderful stores there to look for a special treasure. I am not really buying a lot of things for the house these days, but when there is that certain item that is extra special, then it is a no brainer.
My dear friend, Wave, and I were in a wonderful store that specializes in primitives and old signs. Instantly I spotted a cow sign (that is now in my laundry room) and then…way up high on the wall.. was this:
Now those of you that read my blog know that my male Scottie is named Duhgall. Duhgall is Gaelic for the name Doug. Duhgall also translates to “dark stranger”. And Duhgall is black..so he is a dark stranger.
The sign is double sided and porcelain over steel and dates from around the 1930’s. The gentleman that I bought it from said he bought it at a flea market in New York City over 30 years ago. He was a bit reluctant to sell it at first, even though he had a price tag on it. Needless to say, he caved….
When I got home I looked up information about MacDougal Street and it is quite interesting to know that this street has quite a history. To read about this illustrious section of Greenwich Village, just click HERE.
The sign is a great fit with my Scottie dog prints. So happy I found it! It pays homage to my little guy, Mr.Mac-Duhgall.
