A Fun Little Collection...


Hope you all are having a wonderful New Year!  I have just returned from a lovely visit with my family in California but am still recuperating from the flu I caught on there on Christmas (and yes...I had a flu shot...)

Thought I'd share a fun little collection today!  I love dog collectibles, and little vintage playing cards are plentiful and inexpensive!  I wanted to make a fun display of my goodies on a door, where I could see and be inspired by them, in my studio.  
Big vintage letters are a graphic start...
and a couple of pants hangers and some 
colorful plastic clothespins hold lots of cards!



So many cute dogs...


It's fun to have something like this to look for when you're treasure hunting...a vintage deck of dog cards always brings a smile to my face!






Each card is a little work of art!
 
Until next time...I have a date with a cup of hot tea and honey...

  15. Hope you feel better. Guess California doesn't cure everything, and stuck inside with the flu in Minnesota right now isn't a bad thing!

  24. Oh Linda you got sick too? I hope you're feeling better and I had to stop by and wish you a Happy News Year. I've loved following you through 2013 and I can't tell you how much I enjoy my visits here. I'm a dog lover and once again I leave with another idea. Vintage cards? Hung on a hanger? Love it!

  29. Linda, the dog cards would also look so sweet in itsy bitsy frames, framed in a grouping.
    Love your hanger vignette so clever and yes inspires your studio.

    Thank you dear for taking the time to visit and leaving a comment that welcomes 2014.
    Glad you had a fond memorie moment with my clock parts.

    Happy New Year!
    Beautiful January to you.

  30. Great idea!! I once had an old deck of cards with horses on them. I couldn't think of what to do with it. I couldn't use it to play cards with because a few of the cards were missing. Wish I would have seen this idea sooner. Awesome!
