Collies to Love and Decorate With


My dear friend, Christina, is madly in love with Collies, both the living kind and decor, including beautiful paintings, depicting them.





She has two gentle giants, Levi and Maddie.  Both are sweet animals.

                                                                  (This is Levi, watching us from behind a screened window!)


Christina lavishes attention and oodles of love on them.


On a recent visit to her charming home, I was able to see how she cleverly uses lots of Collies in her decor!


Even a window sill has Collies "looking out" at the fall foliage.


Christina was kind enough to tell me I could take photos of her Collie treasures to share on my blog and today's the day!

                                                                        (In the kitchen)
My friend loves sheep, too, and has several different kinds of vignettes all over her house.

We'll have a little more on Christina's decor in future posts so, if interested, stay tuned!


DID YOU EVER WATCH "LASSIE" ON TV?

Collies are beautiful dogs. I watched Lassie, and when my daughter was three, she used to start d in front of TV and get so emotional over Lassie's predicaments, sometimes she'd sob.

Hello from Spain: I grew up watching this series on television. I really liked Lassie. Your friend has a very nice collection. Keep in touch .

I remember watching Lassie. Collies are beautiful dogs and very loving, although I remember the one that we had liked to "herd" me if I tried to run across the yard without her. :)

Good Morning Susan!
Well, I think we can all agree we like Collies! I love them too, and have very fond memories of Lassie.
What a lovely collection of collies Christina has!
Happy Tuesday,

Good morning,
That was a great collection of collies - they are pretty but a little big for me. I used to watch Lassie - and Timmy!

Yes I watched Lassie on tv when I was young. Used to love that show. Christine sure does love collies. My friend Sandra had one too. They are very loving dogs.

I think it's wonderful to add things you love to your decor. Sometimes I have cat things! Oh yes, love Lassie as a kid.

When my daughter was three, her father brought home a full-bred collie that looked just like Lassie. She was a sweetie pie until her death at nearly 13 years old. I still miss her gentle ways.

As a child I loved Lassie but have't seen it for a long time.

I did watch Lassie on tv and enjoyed it very much. I love dogs of all kinds; your friend's collies are very sweet. Lucky friend, lucky dogs.

I love seeing how people decorate their homes using beloved items. Your friend obviously loves her collies and as they are well known as sheep dogs I can completely fall in love with them too. Thank-you for sharing some of her collection.

I always wanted a Lassie! Your friend has a beautiful collection! Please tell her I enjoyed the photos!

Collies are such pretty dogs. My kids used to watch reruns of Lassie after school sometimes. It was a favorite show of theirs. :) Have a good rest of the week!
