Quick Junk Stop

 I made a quick stop on my way home today for a little junk fix at the VOA.  I'm so glad I stopped because you know how much I needed yet another satin vanity box - lol!  Actually, I was very happy to find this one because it is only the third one I have found in this large size.  My cabinet is completely full now so time to start switching them out to get colors that match the contents.
 Three new Wades for the Grand and an accidental duplicate I'll gift to another Wade collector I know.
 Some sweet little creatures to add to my accidental accumulation of little critters.  The rabbit is stamped Made in Japan.
My whoopsie drawer of critters.  I actually used some in a terrarium project a few years ago and I am fascinated with all those faerie gardens I'm seeing on Pinterest so who knows...
I hope you are finding time for some fun this weekend!

Nifty finds! I have a few Wades my mom brought back from England for me years ago. I keep them in printer trays on the wall. The vanity box is like one my great aunt had, very fun memories stirred. Thanks!

When I was little we use to cross over the border into Canada to buy tea boxes as they would give away a free wade trinket in the box. I wonder if my mom still has all the little figures we collected. Will have to ask. thanks for the memory : )
