treasury tuesday. vintage toys.

I do love toys. Fisher-Price were my favourite when I was little. That was back in the day when the figures were small and wooden or plastic. My kids have played with my vintage schoolhouse and hospital. And now I'm holding on to them for my grandkids.

My schoolhouse was given to me by my lovely Gran when I turned four. Today is another birthday, some decades after that birthday has been and gone. I reckon if someone gave me a 1970s Fisher-Price toy I'd be as excited as I was that morning back in 1976...

treasury tuesday. turning japanese.

When I think of Japanese design, I think elegance, poise and balance. Of course there's also that manic, lurid, cartooneque dimension to some Japanese design. But Hello Kitty has no place on this blog. :)

treasury tuesday. articulated dolls.

Aren't paper dolls just so fun and interesting. These are extra special. They're articulated dolls. I love that word - in both its meanings. Which is your favourite? For me it's a toss up between the owl and the stubbly guy in the red jumper.
