Slimy Adventures!

I rarely follow any sort of trend. My clothing should tell you that. But, on occasion something neat comes up that is so odd I have to try it.

Summer Fun at Target! Sharks and Mermaids and Dinosaurs, OMG

Target’s “Dollar Spot” or “Bullseye’s Playground” or whatever they’re calling it now has pleased me to no end the past few months with small and cute toys and other little items that cost a dollar or sometimes three. Once the Easter stuff cleared out, they hit me yet again with summer stuff with themes of sharks, mermaids and dinosaurs!!!

Vintage Toys: A Box from my Mother’s House!

Last night I got together with my two brothers and we went through some extremely dusty boxes in Mother’s basement. We had great fun and I came home with a box of treasures–things I had been wondering about but had thought they were scattered to the wind. I have a lot of my old toys at my house, in storage and in my home, but there were still some missing pieces….I found a lot of them. 🙂
