Scotty Dog Cutout Shutters

Scotty Dog Cutout Shutters

Heart be still – these have to be the best cutout shutters I ever did see!  I spotted them this afternoon on a colonial in Melrose.

Cut-out shutters do something to me – they produce that internal “click” that makes any house instantly appealing. Cutout shutters come in all sorts of varieties – diamonds, initials, squirrels, shamrocks, etc.

But scotty dogs?  Never did see these before.  Scotty dog cutout shutters are a twofer for me. This house isn’t for sale but if it were I’d be in line.

I’m a cat person but years ago on ebay I discovered the enormous popularity of scotty dogs and scotty dog ephemera.  Though I’ll never have a real live scotty dog my house now has its share of scotty dog collectibles – I’ve got drinking glasses, vintage cards, framed mottos, books and more adorned with these endearing little black dogs.

Here’s more info about cutout shutters in an earlier House Parts post I wrote.  Sadly, the squirrel shutters pictured on the Cambridge house have since been removed.

And here’s the charming Melrose colonial adorned with scotty dog cutout shutters.
