Well we have Arrived the Dreaded Day
April 15th Tax Day
I am sure a lot of you have been under
a whole lot of stress to meet the Deadline!

I think you deserve a bit of Yummy Eye Candy

Take some time and ponder if you
could travel anywhere where would you
go, who would you take with you?

And what Vintage Goodies would you
purchase along the way!

These little figurines from the 1950's
are really some of my favorite Treasures
Sometimes you can pick them up for a Song

They always bring a smile to my face
Even if they have a chip or have lost
their wings I just can't pass one up!

I mean really anything 50 years old is
going to be somewhat imperfect Heeee.... :D

Hugs & Kisses,

I can remember knowing some little 'old' ladies when I was young that had collections of 'what nots'! Now I buy every one I can find! heehee! Not because I am old though...they are in style now! lol ♥


Hi Diane,
LOVE, LOVE the first dark-haired little girl figurine! Is she for sale? It's hard to find them with dark hair like mine!!!
The sweet eye candy was yummy!
I'll be 55 on Monday...and I have a few chips and cracks..LOL!!! More like lines and grey hair :)

Thank goodness tax day will soon be over. It's such a relief to finally get the return in the mail.

Your sweet little ceramic dolls are the sweetest ever. Your photos are amazing.

Diane...I love these cute figurines. I bought one with the sweet girl holding a "4"...I hope to think of something creative for my Grandbabies 4th Birthday. Thanks for brightening my day.

Your little figurines are so sweet! If I could go anywhere I'd go to: IrelandEnglandScotlandSwedenItalyAustralia. Oh, doesn't that count as just one wish when I leave out the spaces?
We finished up taxes a couple of months ago. Over and done with.

Hey Diane!
I was debating whether to hit my favorite thrift store today, now after seeing all your vintage yummies, I know I have to go on a treasure hunt myself!

Have a great day,
