Sunday Picks

 I have been occupied with family affairs this past week but indulged in a junk fix at the VOA this morning.  It wasn't one of those red-letter visits but I came home happy with a glass flower frog to add to my collection and a boatload of little millinery flowers to add to inspiration kits.
The Kewpie in her little hand-crochet dress and the baby rattles were found in separate parts of the store but seemed to be calling for each other.  Cute isn't my usual style but they were just too sweet to leave behind. Sometimes "adorable" is a perfect reminder that life continues to renew itself.

I recently picked up a giraffe squeaky toy from the 70s. What the heck am I gonna do with it? Don't know, but it was too cute to pass up!

The little Kewpie and her ruffly dress made me smile. I'm glad you came home happy and I hope all is well :)

Lots of fun stuff.

What I like most is the glass frog. I am now wondering where all my mother's frogs are.

You always find such wonderful things and many with memories! As a kid ALWAYS playing "house" with my sister and all ourdolls..I remember having the two rattles..the bear and the clothespin...for my dolls! Must have been my sisters (she was 3 years younger)

You always find something at the VOA. I think the little rattles are just very sweet. Have a wonderful week!

They were definitely meant to come together. You find the sweetest treasures over there. I'm not a big doll person, but I do love Kewpies. I was just talking about them the other day.

Fun finds Kathy! Love using those glass flower frogs on my desk - they are perfect for tools and pen/pencil holders!
