Give-away and Miscellaneous
When my granddaughter Rowan comes over to stay all night at Grandma Amy's house we always have to get these doll toilets down off the guest bathroom shelf for her to play with before her bath. She names everyone...the daddy toilet...the mommy toilet....the sister toilet....
The one above one is her favorite. She call this the baby.
This is my favorite. I don't see little doll toilets very often in antique stores and I know better than to visit Ebay. That could be too addictive. The hunt is the fun part of finding a new thing for a collection and Ebay is way too easy anyway! I love looking through aisles of antiques and shelves full of junk and then.....there it is .....score... a win.....a toilet!!!!! That sounds so funny when I type it! I like that I just have to dust these every so often. No messy toilet bowl cleaner and scrub brushes involved!
I don't know how I got these little hotel soaps above. I did have a lot more but threw most of them out and kept the neat ones. I remember taking a 2 week trip with my Grandma and Grandpa when I was in high school. We either stayed at Holiday Inn or Best Western. Those were the two most popular hotels back then. Grandpa was happy if he could get a room for $25.00 - $30.00 a night. Can you even imagine what kind of hotel that would buy you today.....yikes I hate to think about it!
I bought this little sewing chest and apparently I need to dust this little sewing chest! I am definitely not up on my dusting! The top has a seashell screwed to the top for the bowl. There is a cork for pins and needles. I don't know why there is holes in the little wooden shoes/boots? If anyone wants to guess and tell me what you think they are for I would love to hear what you think.
This is my community workout group "Dog Days" . We meet at 6:00 p.m. They also have one that meets at 6:00 a.m. but that is too early for my blood. I stay up too late. I like to go out in the evening when it is over 100 degrees and do 30 of three different squats and other brutal exercises for 20 minutes followed by a 2 mile run. ( Ha! Ha!) Why do I do this?...it is all of us doing it together that keeps me coming back. We have all ages and all sizes and all skills. It is so hard to do a intense workout by myself. Also sometime after I turned 45 if I even look at food I gain weight! So sad..... so off to work I go.....hi ho....hi ho.......
In honor of my "Dog Days" workout we are giving away a set of my "Dazzling Dog" patterns to one random winner who posts to this blog entry about one of your collections.
Keep Cool! Amy
