It's not often I buy frivolous items for the house. It's adequately decorated, and I generally put any extra money towards useful things. But the other day I found this whimsical Dachshund wrought iron boot scraper at a thrift store. I wavered. Back and forth. And finally, I paid and brought him home.
I have a small collection of wrought iron items - they seem to go well with a log home. I've always wanted an iron headboard, but it has never been in the budget. Still, I am quite happy with this unusual stoic-faced little dog - he makes a nice addition to our front porch.
