If you find it, please return it.
I desperately need it.
And let the merry mania begin on this Friday, er, Saturday.
Saved this pedal tractor from the metal scrapper.
Someone's Christmas present from Santa in 1955.
While my Etsy shop is closed until 2017, I have been downsizing items.
Discovered this box of German bisque dolls from the late 1880's.
They are the original snow babies.
These were rejects on the factory lines.
A piece broken from each doll and tossed in the ditches behind the factories.
It is amazing the "snow" stayed on these tiny pieces of history.
I sold several sets - mostly to people in Europe.
Great for mixed media artists and jewelry creators.
The pixies are my favorites.
I plan to keep a few and sell the rest in my booth with the Frozen Charlottes.
In addition to preparing the booths for this weekend's sales and Thanksgiving (my brother did everything!), it was our thirty-sixth wedding anniversary.
We planned a whole day of doing nothing but watching movies and going out for dinner followed by Sonic milkshakes.
We bought our second refrigerator ever.
No kidding our refrigerator was purchased in 1982.
The present one no longer will keep ice cream so we had to buy a new one.
However a fridge cannot really be an anniversary present, can it?
So the day before the big day, I spied this rolling in the front door of the mall.
A vintage telephone niche from a department store.
It is beau-tee-ous!
I do know Kris and Rush are going wild over this.
Still has the mirror and the little phone book shelf.
I will clean and wax it.
Then hang it in the foyer.
Happy anniversary to me.
When I called home to let Chucks know I had bought us an anniversary present, he said it better be smaller than the truck.
I also got a huge bouquet of daisies.
One more pic of that perfect-for-under -the-tree tractor.
I think I have my days straight now.
