First her thermos .....Roy Rogers and Dale Evens and believe it or not the inside is not broken!
You cannot see it in the picture but the lid and cup are missing. Someone stuck a piece of cork in it. I just love cowboys and horses. I grew up in early 1970s watching The Virginian...my very favorite, Bonanza, Gunsmoke, High Chapperal, and many others.
Then there is her Hopalong Cassidy cup.
My son when he was little climbed up the ladder into the attic of the old garage/barn behind my grandmother's house and found this stove and teapot.
In the picture above you can see the cobalt blue art deco dishes, the two shairs, lavortory and bath tub. I got all these and the clear glass behind the blue set along with part of a old picture frame in a bag at a antique store for $12.99. I have never seen a dish set like this. The chalkware pieces I found buried in the yard at my great grandmothers so they are most likely my mom's also.
This is my old Santa Claus that used to talk but the string is long gone. I always put him out with the Christmas decor but the rest of the year he is in this little cabinet.
I love stuffed animals and particularly bears and lambs.
I have two that are extra special. This rabbit puppet which looks like the one off of Captain Kangaroo. This is what I grew up watching on television. It was the show for kids. I have so many memories of watching it.
The other special one is this clown bear that is German and belonged to a woman who was probably in her 70s in the 1980s and I am not sure if it was hers or her mothers but it is old!
This is the first tin toy I found and one of my favorites.
The shade on one of my cobalt blue was broken when a shelf it was sitting on fell. I am just glad it did not break the whole lamp.
I saw recently at a local antique store a display of baby shoes. They were so adorable. I also found a child's old wrought iron bed that is to die for....I think it is $150 but I would love to have it.
I love the old toys...they are so sweet and you get to see the old styles in miniature. I hope you enjoyed seeing these. Maybe it brought back a happy childhood memorie and made you smile! :)
