Hello Wednesday, so glad to see you. It’s the last few days before Christmas and I am (yet again) musing of Christmas pasts. Someone asked on Facebook this morning what movie first you would like to relive. I, of course, remembered way back to seeing Star Wars as just a wee lass (I was three!). So in my never-ceasing-to-wander brain, I began thinking of how wondrous things were when I was younger. I tried to figure out at what age Christmas ceased being awe-inspiring and turned into “Hope-I-Get-What-I-Wantmas”. Then immediately my mind turned to a few years ago when Christmas became truly special again – the year I met my “Christmas Baby” – my hubby. (End ramble here.)
In all these whirlwinds of thoughts I remembered a few items that rocked my world when I was a kid. Good, old fashioned toys they really don’t make anymore (mass-produced at least). It’s really only recently, upon discovering the awesome world of Handmade, that I realized some of this magic still does exist.
My spotlight today is toys of Christmas past and toys of Christmas present. A tiny bridge between the two that I have found again with some really great Artisans. Enjoy!!
Almost as much as I loved our GIANT Tinker Toys. These babies were life size and so much fun!
