Another recent car boot find. This unusual monkey has a plastic head with lenticular eyes. They wink and open when you tilt him. His  body is made from anAfrican print towelling fabric and is  roughly stitched.

Small collection of Sindy drink bottles and food stuff. The bottles measure around 25mm high and have fabulous Seventies graphics on paper labels. All great fun!

1950s Woven badges

Once upon a time holiday makers would collect woven badges and sew them onto their rucksacks, in much the same way decals were collected and stuck into the back of car windscreens in America. Posted today are three delightful woven badges that remind us of that era. Enjoy!

Tootsie Toys plastic animals

I seem to have been away for a long time, it was never particularly intended to be like that, but it has somehow happened. One of the reasons is the growth of pinterest*. Which Ive been using quite a bit. A shame really as it doesnt seem to have the community aspect that perhaps a blog has, but it is fast and a good way of collating and storing online finds. One things for sure, is its certainly less labour intensive than the blog, but sadly much less personal! 

Anyhow, back today with some more plastic animals, in the shape of Tootsie toys. I know nothing about them, but have been picking them up over the last few years. The dinosaur series seems to be much more sought after than the animals, but these fellas have a charm of their own.

We have been finding some lovely things, so I do promise to come back soon.
