Child's Play


                            Hope your weekend was a good one. We did get snow starting Sunday afternoon
                           and it is a pretty white world out there now!
                                         I took a little time to enjoy my camera in the afternoon and as there were
                             some old fashioned toys sitting under the tree that caught my eye.
                           This cute little vintage looking rocking horse came from Wicker Emporium
                           a couple of days ago - it was 70% off and no tax day!
                                    The little ones like to play with this bunny when they visit.
Skating is a fun and healthy way for children to play outdoors in winter.

                          These cute teddy bears were a gift from my son a number of years ago ~ he
                           knew his Mama still liked to play!
                         an old fashioned looking truck is just the thing for little one's play.

                               This old bear has been around for awhile and he reminds us of
                               The Tangerine Bear ,one of my favorite movies to watch with our
                                younger grandchildren.It has a nice little story with a good message.
                                These leather children's boots are so cute I couldn't resist them.

               Always loved dolls and teddies under the tree ~ wish my children hadn't grown up so fast!

This little book of prayers belonged to our children when they were young - it is illustrated by
Eloise Wilkin. I loved her heartwarming books .....did you too?

          Well enough of 'childs play'  for now ~ I better get to work!

                    Thank you for visiting me,

Love those boots! But I want to ask you about the picture in your banner, the white cookies? Can you tell me what they are? and do you have a recipe? they are beautiful. I just found a Snowball Cookie recipe which looks just like those, made with cake mix and cream going to try making them today.

Ich liebe deinen Blog über alles... deine Dekorationen, den Garten, die Hauser, der See... Ich bin immer wieder begeistert wie schön du es hast. Ich wünschte mein Garten ware auch schon so schön eingewachsen wie deiner. Und du hast ein Flair für dies, ich selber fühle mich oftmals noch etwas überfordert. Ich müsste dich einfach mal mieten- ha ha ha :-)
Ich wünsche dir eine wunderschöne Weihnachtszeit, besinnliche Stunden und weiter so- ich mag deinen Blog über alles
Herzlichste Grüsse aus der Schweiz aus dem Valnöt-Hus

Hello Carolyn,
Yes, they do grow up so fast, I'm remembering Christmas mornings these last few days. Snowed in has created a new memory as well. I love your post, the skates, the memories and the boots, where did you ever get those children's boots? I think you got a great find wiht that little rocking horse, 70% off what a deal. I have to look for wrapping paper, the kids all stash their presents at grandmas then come by and use the gift wrapping station and I have only one roll left, lol. They are making my memories. Enjoy your week ahead, hugs

I have a teddy under my tree, as it turns out. The toys you have on display are charming.



No teddy under the tree for me : my sweet little poodle has decided that they all belonged to her !!
Everything is too cute and tell wonderful stories .

Oh, Carolyn, this is such a delightful post. I too love toys under the tree and your treasures are all so sweet. I am loving that rocking horse! I have a 'thing' for rocking horses. Thank you for sharing this charming post and enjoy this beautiful day.

Christmas blessings,

I can imagine you playing with the old toys under the tree. These things often bring happy memories. Love the boots, but the rocking horse and skates are wonderful too.

I had a wonderful rocking horse collection at our former home, but downsizing meant giving some things away.

That white horse brought back wonderful memories.

I googled Wicker Emporium and found some great things, but it said to buy it at my local shop. There are none in my area. Darn.
