Sorry folks that I haven't been posting on here much! I usually post on my fan page on facebook now... But! I did want to share with you my new hobby other than making woolen pom pom animals.:) Collecting! I love to collect all kinds of eclectic things. Mostly old toys, games, and books. For some reason I am just drawn to them like a moth to a flame. Every time I go to an antique shop my eyes are automatically drawn to old cute vintage toys. I've liked old antique toys even when I was a kid. Never mind if they are scuffed or a bit rusty. To me, that just adds to their charm. I love the story of the Velveteen Rabbit and I am enchanted with the idea that toys have "souls" and I like to reflect on their history. I like to imagine who played with them and if they were loved... (weird, I know!:) Right now, I'm obsessed with collecting tiny vintage celluloid charms from the 1930's and 1940's. They were mostly found in gum ball machines or were premiums attached to cigar boxes, liquor, or even on bags of bread. I've amassed quite a collection so far and I keep adding more each week. Lord, help me! Here are some pictures of my collection so far! I like finding the vintage celluloid chain necklaces too. I plan to fill each one with charms I've selected specifically for it.
So what do you collect? Feel free to post and share! I love connecting with fellow collectors.:)
