It's Chippy Paint Fridays, The final episode

It's Chippy Paint Fridays over here at the Faded Cottage. This is the 11th and final episode. When I originally started this segment, I planned on running it for 8 Fridays but when the 9th and 10th Fridays rolled around, I couldn't resist showing you another vintage item that had chippy paint on it.

To conclude this episode, I am featuring my chippy paint cement dog, named Shabby Dog. As you can see, I have it pictured on the right side of my blog but here's another look.



I rescued her from a estate sale I went to months ago. She was sitting outside in the back yard just calling out for some attention, she didn't want to be left behind. I grabbed her and took her home with me and now she sits proudly in our cottage style formal living room.

She looked like this when I bought her but she needed a little something, I think the pink hat fits her just fine, makes her look a little more prim and proper.


Yep, Shabby dog loves to show off her cute tush and wiggle her tail at you.

And that gorgeous face will melt your heart every time!

A great big thank-you goes out to Mary at marysteacottage
