vintage toys

Below is a picture of my den.  This is the room we are currently working on and I'll give more details in a future post when there's more to say about it.  As you can see, there are very little accessories.  We're working on that.  As we continue to pack up my in-laws' house, we occasionally find the neatest thing.  The latest, tucked in a drawer under stuff, were these little wooden tops.  I'm told these belonged to my father-in-law and his brothers who played with them as little boys.  I loved them and wanted them all.  Coincidentally, I noticed they just happened to be the main colors of my new den; red, blue, spots of black.  So, we brought them back and I lined them up on the coffee table until I could find the right place for them.  A couple of months later they are still lined up on the coffee table.  I think I like them there.  Such a cute little display.

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE it... SO glad you have a blog... I'll add you to my list of friends who have blogs. You will have some wonderful ideas to share... can't wait! ~ kim

  2. Hi, I just discovered your blog ( by way of Between Naps on the Porch)and reading thru your posts.. I just love it. Can you tell me about the flag you have in this room? I love antique flags.... Thanks!

  3. Hi Mary,
    I got that flag years ago. It's a typical American flag folded so that it fit in the frame. The frame in this case is an old window frame. I didn't make it but one easily could. It's hung above our fireplace ever since.

  4. Kay so this popped up, you know, like under the post? I am in love with that flag you have up there! I need to see it more. Do you have a post on that (*going to look for it*)?

  5. No, I don't have a post on that flag but you're like the third person to comment on it. I guess I'll do a post on it!
