Childhood figurines


 
 I recently made a new vignette using one of my childhood figurines. I've had these figurines since I was about 8 or 9 years old.  I would go to Woolworth's on Saturday's after receiving my allowance and buy a favorite item, not a toy, but something to decorate with!  The little girl above and the lady below are two such purchases. There was a third one, but sadly she was broken somewhere along the way.

 
 I wish I remembered how much I paid for the figurines, I'm sure it was probably no more than twenty-five cents!

 
I was happy to discover this little girl figurine matches this pretty antique rose plate I found at an antique store a few years ago.

 The "Everyday Blessings" book also picks up some of the colors.

I haven't joined Marty's Inspire Me Tuesday in a while so will share my new vignette there. Click on her name for lots more inspiration.


I'm also linking to Alma's Seasonal Sundays, click on  her name for lots of fun.


I hope you like my vignette featuring my childhood memories.

How nice that you started collecting as a child. Nicer still that you still have your collection!

My favorite vignettes are ones that have memories attached and/or tell a story. I love your figurine, especially the way it goes so beautifully with that plate. I have a few that I have had for years but none since childhood. That's a treasure.

What a great collection, goodness I have the best memories of Woolworths, don't you wish they were still around! I bought all of my Christmas gifts there when I was a kid! Thank you for your sweet comment on my sons graduation

I think that is so neat that you started decorating when you were a child. I did too!
