More Dogs in the House

5.13.2012

I hope everyone had a great weekend and Mother's day with your families. Our kids and grands have all gone home, but we had such a great time together.

 I wanted to share a little wooden box that I bought on ebay back in January to add to my growing  collection.

Dogs in decorating have been all the rage and I knew when I saw this box with the dogs on top that it would be perfect in the sitting room. It is scratched, but that is all part of the old worn patina.

The front of it is wavy. I guess this is an art deco style. The dogs on top are painted on with an inlay around them.







The box sits on the table under my favorite dog picture

along with the rest of the dogs in this room. It was a very rainy day when I took these pictures. Makes me want to curl up with a book.

Best part, the box was only $5. Cheapest box I have found.

Have a super week!

  3. I can't believe you only paid $5 for that big box! Wow! You really scored! It's very pretty. I really like the curved front too. It was good seeing pics of all the grandkids. Hope you're getting some rest this rainy afternoon now.
