Vintage Thingies Thursday!!
YaY! It's Vintage Thingies Thursday! Our lovely hostess is Coloradolady, so pop on over there if you would like to see other bloggers' thingies! I forgot until a few minutes ago what day it is, so I scrambled to find something vintage to share. All I could come up with are some of my favorite things that are inside my secretary/hutch. They're silly, but it's all I got! I have had this poodle jewelry holder since I was a little girl. Her poofy hair is kinda dingy looking, from years of dust accumulating in it. I don't know how I can safely clean her, so she remains grungy!
I don't know how old these clocks are. One says West Germany on it, and the other two say Japan. I think they're cute, but when I look at them, all I can think of is the apple-green one that got away. Alas, someone grabbed it before I could. We all probably have a story like that!
These little bike-riding gals are very precious to me. They belonged to my Grandma, and they sat on her desk for a million years. They've been broken and glued together a few times, because my boy cousins couldn't keep their hands off pretty things without breaking them! Do I sound bitter? I'm really not! But I love these girls so much that I keep them imprisoned behind glass to keep them safe, so that I can pass them on to my daughter. Do you have something precious that no one can touch?
