Flea Market Finds For Fido

Bed & Breakfast has gone to the dogs! Lately all the rage is about going green and giving new life to discarded items so as I was thumbing through the pages of a well-loved older issue of Country Home Magazine November 2008, I was thrilled to see an article that walks you through repurposing old chairs into a fabulous dog bed and how to transform a toile tray into a custom feeder tray with room for dog food bowl and water bowl.  Directions here.


Fabulous Finds from Flea Markets In Oregon

Hello everyone! As many of my readers know, I have been spending a bit of time in the Pacific Northwest and have been lucky to visit some truly FABULOUS flea markets and antiques & collectibles shops and I have been posting some of these visits right here to share with you all. Here are a couple neat finds from a recent visit to a NE Portland flea market. These are the coolest Orange Retro dog themed keychains that are handmade and hand etched by a local artisan.

I did find this vintage Lefton crying onion head relish jar, a 1950s  spaghetti poodle dog figurine and this neat vintage 1950s PY Lemon head anthropomorphic salt and pepper shaker set.  If you are interested to know more about these items visit here.
