Vintage Thingies Thursday


Here I am back in the mountains, I drove up Sunday [500plus miles] with DGS #2, L, & the Button dog, now recovered from her second round of chocolate poisoning. She looks sort of weird with one leg shaved as if someone tried a poodle cut & then she escaped-or they thought better of it. I know that it was necessary to get the hair out of the way for the IV but did they have to make such a hash of it? It doesn't seem to bother her now, though the first few days she kept licking at it in typical dog fashion. She is sleeping peacefully beside me & seems fit enough to run her one hour mountain trek every day.
As vain as I am, I am bothered by my dog's weird appearance,lol!


But I digress, it is VTT again & you can find lots of interesting memorabilia by visiting coloradolady.
I have collected quite a few old prints, some came from flea markets during our sojourn in Europe & those I will show another day.


This one is printed on silk & we purchased it in the charming old town of Rothenburg, Germany, the oldest walled Roman city in that country. With it's cobbled streets & ancient buildings there is much to intrigue any history afficiando.

The second picture is of the actual scene, & the female figure sitting on the post in the center foreground is yours truly. Upon my knee is this silk lithograph that we had just purchased.
This was 1978 I think that counts as vintage?
The blur in the top left corner is probably DH's finger over the lens, lol!

I enjoyed seeing your vintage prints so much. You can really pick up some neat items in other countries if you watch. Too, thank you for visiting my post.

It's nice to have a photo of yourself in the same place as shown on the print.

I love that you have a picture of you holding the print, in the actual spot, and the print is gorgeous! I hope your sweet pup is feeling better!

Neat that you got a picture of the same scene as your print. Glad puppy is better. You can hardly tell in the picture that her leg is shaved.

I LOVE the lithograph which is made all the more special by the photo of you in the same scene. It's like you jumped into the picture somehow!!!

How pretty! I love the lithograph and the picture... how great is that?!

I am getting all kinds of ideas for the glass insulators so come back and check them out for yourself.

Have a wonderful day!

What fun keepsakes..you with the print and the print. I am glad your adorable dog is on the mend.

Ros, I just about started to cry when I saw Buttons looking like that. And I think how I used to leave M&Ms out and my Dusty dog never went for them. And your picture holding the print is so cool. I've always wanted to see Germany.

Ruby said...

Talk about walking right into a picture! That is really neat! Glad to hear Buttons is still doing OK. Do you think a mongoose would kill my dogs? They would bay it! Silly hounds.

Carrie said...

That vintage picture was a great find!

Miri said...

Lovely print and great juxtaposition with the photo of the actual corner. What a beautiful half-timbered building!

Glad pooch feels better.
