A Gotta Have.....

This little mischievous pooch was one of my gotta haves. ;)  It's a small picture (5 1/2" by 4 1/2").  It cost me an entire $2.14 on EBay.  I had ordered other things from this person and the shipping on all was greatly reduced so I'm sure I only paid a few cents on this for shipping.  Right now he sits propped on my desk making me smile every time I look at him.   He reminds me of our dog Fritz.  Not in looks but in actions.  The first day after we gave Fritz his forever home he goes and decides my new bathroom rugs would make a good snack.  Wrongo Fritz. ;)  He has been the perfect dog since then.  It was only a matter of telling him no.  He knows what's his and what's ours.  We couldn't ask for a better pooch.

My new sig on it and the back is covered with paper.  The photo looks to  have a dark area on the right hand side in the white....but that is due to the photographer ;) not the photo. :)

And our you see the resemblance? :)

Here are a couple more old pictures we picked up at an estate sale this summer for a $1 a piece.  They both have metal frames.  And once again...I know nothing about the history of them.  But I do know they have a good 'feel' about them. :)  Both pictures are small...neither being larger than 7".

This one is has glass on it.  I look in the picture...and can see myself in that cottage with the pup with NO snow on the ground! ;) 

This one has no glass.  I'm not sure if it's intentional or it was broke.  The picture has a 'soft' old paper.  I could see myself here too....sipping on a lemonade watching the sailboats.  Oh Spring...hurry up and get here! :)

I hope all of you have a warm weekend.  We have another winter storm watch up.......I am soooooo excited!  NOT!!! ;)
