So I hopped on my trusty bike, it's just a short ride!
When the pink lady (she's always dressed in pink) told me a Xmas table had been set in the back, I just flew there! OMG the hopes of finding vintage glory! Here's what I found:
Look at that face! You just want to squeeze it! LOL
I also found these uglies oops sorry cuties! The little house was probably a cake decoration.
If I'd shown these to my mom she'd probably have an aneuvrism
But I love them!
I'm guessing this is a version of Bonhomme Carnaval. Bohomme Carnaval is the mascot of the very famous Québec city Carnaval held each year in February. It lasts 2 weeks and it's the frozen version of Mardi Gras.
Again I find myself wishing for a BIG house with lots of rooms....One room near the kitchen where all the Pyrex is exposed ,one room just to keep all the Xmas decor, one room where I could have the Dept 56 Original Snow Village and Dicken's Village displayed year round and a loooong console table where I could display my collection of light up Santas. Ok so it's just a dream, I have this small cozy house that is already bursting at the seems....Bummer! LOL
So The Santa is listed in the shop and i'll be keeping the Xmas cuties for my tree!
I was surprised to read an email this morning telling me my blog is part of Top 50 Blogs for Yard Sale Aficionados.
