    I admit this started as a Scottie Dog post, but one thing, led to another, and here it is! :^D
    The first picture is actually the last thing that I found at the Thrift Store on Thursday, it's an old, maybe 1920's print of a scantily dressed girl/woman, doing push-ups, in front of her Scottie Dog, that seems to be encouraging her while sitting in a chair. On the bottom of the print it says "Nannette". I found it in a 14"x14" matte frame, and cut it down to fit into the wooden frame, with glass front. The print is faded a little, but I like it!
    What started the Scottie Dog post were the two different Scottie Dog Bookends, one pair is a Scottie, in front of a fence, and the other pair is of a Scottie's Head, both bookends are made of Plasti-wood, and the Head set have sheet metal stands.
    The little carved wood Scottie Dog, is glued on a Redwood burl base, and I added the brass Cat/Bear shelf sitter, for fun! It says on a paper sticker on the bottom "Big Basin State Park California"
    Next are my Saint Patrick's additions, some plastic shamrock coins, a small brass Leprechaun figurine, a small green glass Frog, a small green glass Squirrel, and a larger green glass Cat, 2 bottles of Guinness Extra Stout, and an antique lidded pewter stein, engraved on the front M. Erlebach. On the inside bottom it's marked GRUNE WALD Pr Zin 1816 on 4 lines, inside a laurel wreath, and above that is a stamped mark of a woman in a flowing gown with a C G on either side of her head, and it looks like maybe some other letters, but not sure.
    Last for Easter, a little stoneware bunny with long ears!

    "That's All Folks"

    Thanks for looking, Happy Saint Patrick's Day, and all comments welcome! :^)

      Hi Bill
      Besides the nice girl with dog picture, I really like your various animals & St Pat's leprechaun. I particularly like your green glass animals as I collect these, it looks like the small frog & squirrel are from Cambridge Glass, those are true antiques (1930s I believe). Have a happy & safe St Patrick's weekend
      Best, Jenni

      Hi Bill! Happy St. Patrick's Day! The print is lovely!

      I love the glass animals. Really nice. I knew Jenni would pick up on those!

      The grumpy cat sitting with the dog on the redwood burl base is very amusing!

      The stein is interesting and also fairly large for a stein, no?

      Wonderful collection!

      Thank you Jenni,
      Sorry I'm so slow at getting back, I went to the Flea Market, early this morning, and when i got home, I had to help my wife, clean, and cook our corned beef, and cabbage, family dinner, and after that we all went to our family bowling night, and didn't get home until after 10pm. We had a good time, but a long day! :^D
      I had fun putting this post together, been figuring it out for a couple of weeks now, but had to hurry it along, and didn't finish it until after midnight 3/16,17. You're right about the frog and squirrel, they are Cambridge Glass, I was hurrying, to post, and forgot to note that! Thank you for the love too! :^)

      Hey Laura, thank you!
      The green glass animals, I had to put in, for the Day, but the grumpy cat shelf sitter, just fit in for some reason. He sits on the corner of a miniature figurines wall shelf collection, looking to the side, in discussed, of the crowd of animals, that have front row seats, but knows that he leap to the ground whenever he pleases, without worry of breaking, as most of the smaller ceramic figurines would do, if they chose to leap from the safety of the shelf! :^D
      I think the stein is a liter, probably a standard size, but looks larger, because of the smaller items, in the post.

      Thanks to you all for looking at, and loving my Saint Patrick's Day post,
