An Auction Re-Do

Last week I picked up this sweet little vintage ceramic, made in Japan dog at an auction.
He was $1 and his bucket was empty. When we picked him up my daughter (who is all of 5) was very concerned that the handle was missing. Not to worry. I promised her I already had a plan.
A little foam ball, a few flowers and he's ready for a new home.

What a cute little dog and a great bargain too. With the flowers in the basket you can't even notice the handle is missing.

Cute doggie planter. I think it's cute that your daughter was concerned about the missing handle. I bet she has fun going out thrifting with you.

So cute, I think this might be a vintage toothpick holder. I have several of these, all little animals! Love how you have flowers there, much better than toothpicks!
Thanks for linking up to the party,

Boy is he cute dressed up with his flowers. And what a great price too. I know I love to take my kids to auctions and yard sales, estate sales etc. it is so much fun to get to pass along such an appreciation of such things to them.

Be sure to come by my blog I am haveing a big giveaway.
