Chalkware Dogs




I’m joining Kathleen at Faded Charm for White Wednesday. I thought I’d share a small collection of chalkware dogs that I have that normally guard my books in my bookcase.



 These chalkware dog figures don’t have any significance to me, other than I love dogs and I’ve always been drawn to the patina of  worn, paint-chipped and time-faded surfaces.




 You can read more about Chalkware here.













This particular dog, is almost white, due to the porous nature of the plaster surface, which causes the paint to flake off.



 Of course, I’m partial to white dogs.




Stop by Faded Charm & enjoy your White Wednesday.

    such a cute post… do you know i love your blog? you are just so good at it ALL!

    i love, all 3 of my dogs came from there, its wonderful seeing you support them on your sidebar. when my dog tucker died last june, that very afternoon while sobbing hysterically over him i picked out maggie and cassie… i was so grateful to have a place to look while i was swollen and puffy from crying, i knew i needed new dogs and that they needed me just as much. jasper was our bonus dog, he is cassies sister and had parvo, i didn’t want to leave him behind so we added him into the pack the day we went to meet them all. long live!

    What a lovely post about your wonderful collection. Since I’m “owned” by 5 dogs, I found this very enjoyable.
