Decorating Ideas


I bought these old scissors, decease and have them for sale in my store. They are about 125 years old, look maybe older. The other day I was looking in my “idea” book, treatment and came across this idea. I thought it was such a unique way to keep string, twine, even ribbon for the holidays, and I thought I would share it with you.


Most of us are familiar with Arnold Print Works animals, especially those wonderful cats, and pugs. I have a few of them in my home, sitting in an old basket. If you have a country home, these are a must have. I have this little guy for sale in my store. He is not an old one, but he he is reasonably priced and is anxious to find a home.




The Arnold Print Works pugs are hard to find, especially in perfect condition.


I have an original pattern from 1892 of a pug in my store. It has never been cut and in perfect condition, another unique gift for the person that has everything, and loves primitives. So that’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed our visit. Until tomorrow-
Happy day

    Oh I loved this post! The images are wonderful – your sense of style is fabulous! I had to have the pug and while I was at your store, I had to buy a cat too. Thanks!

    I love you scissor and string idea! I’ll have to try that. I love seeing and reading about the antique stores you visit. It seems like you have a great many near you. There are several around here, but it’s more collectibles. The west coast doesn’t have much really old stuff – it all comes from the east at a high price. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you for visiting Debbie. Yes, I am very fortunate. I live on the east coast, as you might already know, and I am near some wonderful antiquing country. So now you know where to shop for antiques, Caroles Country Store.
