In with the Old

Who says newer is always better? Antique Scottie finds can be just as fun! Recently, Heather and Mr. K's Scottie Great-Grandma sent us this tie rack and figurine (pictured above) that she came across at what she affectionately calls her local "junky junk shop." She stumbled across these two Scottie finds and immediately thought of Heather and Mr. K. So, she scooped them up and sent them on their way. Upon opening the package, Heather knew right away that the figurine represented her and gave it a kiss on the face! Mr. K hasn't decided what to thing of the tie rack yet but he did propose two potential plans for its use...let us know which one you think is best!

1) As you know, Heather and Mr. K are not allowed in the master bedroom (unless, of course, Scottie Dad just happens to be away...!). But there is no rule saying they can't be represented in their absence! Mr. K's first idea was to hang the tie rack in the master bedroom closet - you might remember us unveiling the newly designed feature in Project Runway: Scottie Edition - so that every morning when Scottie Dad goes to grab a tie for work, he is reminded of his precious furkids!

2) Now, the problem with Mr. K's first idea is that the Scottie cuteness wouldn't be displayed for all the world to see as people enter The Scottie House. The tie rack could easily be converted to hang Heather and Mr. K's assortment of leashes by the front door. Not only would that be a reinforcement of the Scottie image right there as you walk through the door, but everyone would know whose house this really is! Hmmm...decisions, decisions! What do you think?

  1. This does not need deep thinking: by the front door, of course, for all the world to see!

  2. Both pieces are wonderful! I would use it by the front door. It's perfect for leashes and collars :o)

  3. Miss Ginny says that the front door is the only place for the darling tie rack to be hung! She wants one, too.

  6. I think the tie rack looks more like a Cairn than a Scot. Whatever, stay away from here or I'll never find any Scottie treasure in the stores.

  7. Adding my vote for the front door leash holder. Also as a mum of both I need to say it looks very much a Scottie not a Cairn.

  8. We have a pair of book ends with the same Scottie design as the tie rack! Found them at an antique shop.

  10. The leash rack by the door is the best idea! Maybe you could hang their sweaters on it too?

    My, aren't Mr. K. and Heather so lucky to have somebody shop with them in mind? I am always on the lookout for Scottie treasures!

  12. I saw that same tie rack for sale on a website at Christmas. Did your friend find it at a B&M shop or online? Oh, and I vote for holding leashes by the front door!

  13. Front door leash holder! BTW, I'm glad I'm not the only one who keeps the pups out of the bedroom except when the honey is away. I don't know what the hair of Scotties are like, but I have to put a sheet over the top bed cover because Maya and Pierson shed. When I do that, my husband has no evidence that the dogs were ever there.

    The tie rack also came as book ends. That's what I have.
