New (old) Toy!

I went thrifting today, and had some great luck. I got several old wooden alphabet blocks, a big bag of vintage white buttons, a glass jar filled with wooden spools, and a small beat up looking hardware shelf with plastic drawers (rusty blue metal!).

Here's the best thing, though...I saw this wooden stacking toy from the 40's the last time I was at a local antique mall. I drooled over it then, but it was too expensive. It was still there today, but on sale! It's mine now. I just love it so much. Look at that patina.

  1. I started drooling the moment the thumbnail picture appeared in my blog feeder. What a beaut - I could happily stare at it all day.
