~ What's in Your Closet? ~

I was diggin' around mine this mornin'
NO....I didn't find any skeletons....



























I did find a box,
A box I had forgotten about...
This box contained some things my Mother had gave me a while back.
Things that I had forgotten about.....




















This box of things,
Things that I had forgotten about.....
 Things that had belonged to my Nana,
Nana was my maternal Grandmother.





















I think I'm a lot like my Nana.
I like these things too...
She collected things she loved.
I do too!
She sewed.
I do too!
She loved to read.
I do too!
She quilted.
I do too!
I think I could get carried away........






So.............How about you?
Are you like my Nana too?





















If anyone out there knows anything about this little guy, Please tell me!
I've been lookin' for information and have not had any luck...
Either way I'll be keepin' him!
He's family, Y'all understand...
That's why I decided to let him out of the closet today!

Hey Skippy!

Come on up here and meet your Brother......

What's his name?...

Y'all know where this is headed......

  2. Thanks Dani,
    My Mamma tells me that it belonged to her brother and that best she could remember, he got it sometime around the early 50's. There is no markings on him at all and he's in remarkable shape...

    Thanks Nana for not letting him play with it..It sure made for a nice Vintage Toy!

  9. Nothing like finding a box of old forgotten toys to bring back the kid in us. Some of those toys must be valuable by now. They are all in great shape. Good luck in finding more information on the monkey. Thanks for joining my blog. I just joined yours in return. JB
