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!
