I know Thanksgiving is day after tomorrow, so why am I talking about my dog collection? Well, if you'll look back to my previous post about cleaning my dining room, you'll understand. I spent my whole day in there putting all my sewing and quilting stuff away so we could eat in there on Thursday. I am SO tired. Hence, the dogs. I had these photos ready for another post that never came, so I thought today was a good time.
I love little china dogs, most of which are from Japan and made around the 40's and 50's. The one below here was an ashtray and is very unique. I love this guy. Looks like he's saying "who me?"
This one (kinda blurry) looks kind of like my shih tzu. He's sweet too.

Here they all are assembled on a shelf in my new green family room. There's even a vintage dog print below the shelf that once was my Grandmother's.
Thanks for indulging me. I promise to show some pilgrim decor soon. HA HA Nerm

Hi Nerm! Your little china dog collection is cute! That ashtray looks like it would make a good base for a pin cushion. I can see a little velvet cover made of blue velvet for the pincushion cover part. It would be cute! Just an idea.

I thought your dog collection was on display because you were "Thankful" for it, LOL! That's one way to tie it into the Thanksgiving theme! LOL! :)

((Hugs)) and Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your family this Thursday!

Hi Nerm. It is so good to "meet" you...I'm really glad you came by my blog! :)

I enjoyed reading your posts, and I have a feeling that I will be visiting you regularly here. I have to start stealing some time so that I can sit here, relax, and read.

Til, then...I'm glad to see you. And I'll be back!
