It's a dog eat dog world! Collecting Thursdays
There are a few things you should know about me. 1-I love animals, in particular puppy dogs and 2-I'm an avid collector. I don't mean one of those creepy hoarders that will die by an avalanche of papers but one who enjoys collecting what she likes and not getting concerned with having one of every color.
One thing that I LOVE to collect is anything vintage with puppies on them. I mainly collect ceramic dogs but I want to branch out to vintage photos, linens and books.
There is a great book called Flea Market Fidos that is a great place to start if you are thinking of collecting puppy stuff. I constantly drool over everything they have in there.
These pups are from Occupied Japan. I love the little bug on the butts.
Even though I don't have Bulldogs, I think they are so cute in ceramic form. I love her little pink flower.
This poor little guy! I really hope he cheered someone one at the hospital. A lot of the planters are Royal Copley. You can usually find their at a fairly cheap price and is another good way to start collecting.
These guys are usually another common piece you will see around. They are great at parties to hold your snacks.
My advice to anyone wants to start collecting is to have fun with it. Enjoy the art of the hunt, sometimes that can be more fun then the actual prize. Remember the golden rule-three is a collection (yes, even if it's ex's husbands).
What do you collect? Hit me up and let me know! I would love to feature you!
