Happy Sunday! Toys,toys,toys.

Today was just a great day! Made the big trek to town with my Bald Man and both of the kids.
We went to Sydney and shopped at their annual Toy Show.
Lots of vintage boys toys to keep Pat and Joshua busy.
A few tables of pink and girlie to hold Karlie and my attention.
Karlie bought a Alf doll for two dollars.
So many childhood memories of Alf " Gordon Shumway ".
She is in love with him.
She is at such a cute age right now.
One minute she wants makeup the next minute she is walking around an arena cuddling Alf.
I found an old in Box Cabbage Patch doll that looked like a twin to my Cabbage Patch doll I had when I was ten.
She was sitting on a shelf next to a little baby boy cabbage Patch doll also new in bow.
Not sure how it happened but for twenty dollars I came home with both of them.
Slightly disturbed that two dolls from 1984 are considered vintage.
Wow I am feeling a bit old tonight but loving my cabbage patch dolls.
I guess one minute I am a 38 year old woman wanting womanly things the next minute I am a ten year old again excited to be able to buy a Cabbage Patch Doll.
My daughter and I have something in common today.
Now to stamping news I played along with Facebook challenge and made a card using pink and brown.
I decided to play with one of my lovely Lulu stamps.


  1. Sandy the elements of your card are balanced perfectly. Love the triangular effect the flowers have around the sentiment and the horizontal image to the right! Wonderful!

    1. I have to say thank youElizabeth for your kind words. I always feel so encouraged after reading your posts.
