Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

New old toys

 My dear friend Leila Foley from Washington gave me these two new pieces to add to my collection of toys on my last visit. I displayed them on top of my red book case..I love them and look for old toys and children's books  at thrift stores and garage sales.
 I'm in my second childhood I think . A while back I made cloth dolls and fabric sheep.. Haven't brought out the sewing machine in awhile but plan to this Spring. I have a few other toys and replicas and need to take pictures of them  and will post them another time..
Do you fall into this "second childhood "category? I think it happened when my kids all moved away.. The empty nest gave me lots of new things to collect and spend my time and  money on.. including blogging and reading other peoples blogs.. and Pintrest! I hope you have found the path to doing fun things and collecting things just because you can.

I still have some of my dolls and my husband's old fire truck. Wish I had some of my teddy bears. I love finding old toy that look like ones that I had or my children had and books. I think you are in the normal range, hah.

I like to collect chicken related items and milk glass vases. I really love antique and vintage items, so my house is full of them! I especially love hand-me-downs from my grandma.

PS - Thanks for the happy birthday wish! :)
