More Sweet Vintage Toys

These sweet children's dishes were added to my collection this morning.



Little Bo Peep and Little Jack Horner



And I did win these baby doll scales this morning, after all.



I lost out on the Lone Ranger. I do love old coloring books.



This is a sweet doll crib.
But, I already have a pink crib and highchair, so I will pass on these.



I'm currently bidding for this toy, but I won't go too high on it.
I do like the chicken on top!


And I lost my bid on Twiggy. I finally had to stop and ask myself, "HAVE YOU BUMPED YOUR HEAD THIS MORNING?"   LOL

I decided I really didn't need them that much after all!

Ms. Wilma and I are making much progress on the play (craft) room. We should be finished by this weekend.  My dream room is one similar to Corey Moortgat's Studio. If you have never seen her blog you should visit and look at what she has done with her Studio and her daughter's room. They are adorable.

We have been reading old British Cozies this week by Kate Kingsbury. The Manor House Mystery Series.
They are very enjoyable. I've read some of them before, but I forget.











Hope everyone has a wonderful week. Remember to pray for big things.
Hugs from me and Ms. Wilma

Oh, thank you so much for the mention!!! My mother's name is Dorothy, so every time your comments come through, I think they're from her-ha ha ! I'll have to take a peek through your blog- looks like you have lots of sweet things to share! Love that blue doll bed you passed on, and the vintage decals! Couldn't you just put vintage decals on everything you own and still not have enough??? Smiles...

I love your new dishes and pink scale! Corey's room is amazing! You have great taste too, so I'm sure you can make a darling space that's similar...but with a "Dorothy" touch!

Paper dolls!!! I used to love them very, very much, often creating my own, or adding to the collection of clothes of my bought ones with creations of my own. Not that they ever looked as good as the bought ones, but it was so much fun.
