Some fun things I've recently found
I know I posted once today, but I thought I'd show you some neat stuff I found lately at sales.
I keep looking for stuff to do collage charms that Natalie showed Chantel and I how to make. Natalie, my room is getting stacked with too many
books, photos, etc LOL. This is addictive! I was with my mom the other day at an estate sale and she asked "what are you looking at?"
"Well, someone's junk drawer....." was my reply. I'm positive that mom does NOT understand me at times. It's so interesting thing what you find in people's junk drawers!
Now, this old tryke would defintely not be found in a junk drawer, but I sure thought it was cute. It reminds me of the one I had. I would ride around on it, holding a straw between my fingers, pretending it was a cigarette, very prissy-like. Where did I get that from? My parents didn't smoke! I think, looking back, it was from movies. The movies from the late 50s and 60s seemed to glamorize smoking a lot, and I guess I thought that would be cool. Glad I didn't continue that habit!
I found these suitcases at the same sale. It felt funny carrying them up to the table all together. I just told the lady "I'm leaving home!".
I don't decorate with Santa really for Christmas, although I do have a beloved little collection of Napco figurines from the 1950s.
I thought these were really special photos though. Don't they look like a more European realistic Santa?? I didn't get a great photo of them, so I hope you can imagine how cute they are beyond my photography skills!
