More Dog Decor

When Alison from The Polohouse announced that she was having a linky party featuring collections, I put together a post on our dog art we have hanging in our home.  You can see that post here.  While photographing the art, I thought I'd do another post with dogs in our decor.

We've got paper mache trays,

pewter trays,

desk accessories,

pencil holders,

doorstops,

bronze bookends,

porcelain bookends,

terra cotta hearth dogs,

weather vanes,

(still with Christmas bows, apparently!)

Spode plates,

hand painted plates,

transferware plates,

Staffordshire (esque) dogs,

spill vases,

lamps,

chalk dogs,

wall plaques,

gate weights,

tie backs,

wallpaper,

chairs and ottomans,

with spaniels,

and hounds,

pillows,

skirted tables,

needlepoint pillows in the family room,

and needlepoint in the bedroom.

You get the idea.  I could go on and on.  Sadly all of these pretty things do not give me the comfort, companionship and love that the real thing does.  I'm hoping that it will soon be a good time for us to open our home and hearts to another English Springer.  When I'm ready, Mr. Pressed Pants isn't and vice versa.  We'll get there!

I'm going to share this post at the following parties:

Open House Friday

Inspirations Friday

Fridays Unfold

Wow Us Wednesday

Show and Tell Friday

  1. I really enjoyed this post, but my dog wants to know why there aren't any yellow labs represented :)

  2. I love your post. I too am a dog lover. I so agree though that all of those picturesque dogs are not the same as a real one. There is nothing like the love and companionship of a dog.

  3. I love all your collections with dogs. I love the plates, I'm a plate person so I was really draw to those and the toile chair and ottoman just made me smile. One of my favorite designs and colors. I enjoyed the tour.

  5. I enjoyed seeing your lovely collection of dogs-especially your red and white toile chair and ottoman.
    You asked me about a tutorial for collages-I use picasa so that is the only way I know how to do it. Picasa is free so if you don't have it already maybe you could download it.Then you just have to hold your pics in a tray on the bottom left side-when you have the pics you want you hit the collage bottom on the bottom row and it will put them into a collage and you can play with the style by hitting the different layouts on the left side.It is easy and fun to do in Picasa-just play with the different options and sizes etc.
    I hope this is helpful to you.
    Thank you for visiting,
