No, I'm Not Dead

Sorry, it's been ages since I posted, as some of you have pointed out to me! I've been busy getting married, buying a house, and moving...the last of which has been quite overwhelming. The movers have just finished hauling my 250+ boxes of toys and books, along with my coin op horse ride, the playground spring animals, and a vintage carnival duck pond (Sigh: I haven't even gotten to show you that yet! Or all the stuff I found on our antique toy hunting honeymoon! Or the most recent Christmas haul! Or my first ever attic pick, where I got dibs on an attic in an old house full of 110 years worth of one family's treasures...oh, it was incredible!)  Anyway....we bought a condo, and some downsizing will sadly be necessary....I may have a virtual yard sale of sorts here soon!

    1. Hi Janice! I may have a rocking horse coming up for sale that you might like...there are a few too many for the condo, sadly!

  3. Congratulations on your marriage and new house! I hope you don't have to get rid of much - hopefully your kitchen can still be full of your collections, not food and utensils and stuff like that?!

    1. Hi Rebecca! I'm actually probably going to part with a few of dollhouses and shops...it's just a bit too crowded! Let me know if there is anything that interested you.

  4. Wow Tracy, you have 'some' fabulous stuff!
    What a delight to browse through your bloghistory...
    I'm a Christmas kitsch fan myself as well as a gnome fan and i do love your wooden ark and the other german erzgebirge toys you have..(being a toy collector myself). Hope you settle in well ( both in marriage as in house;-) ) and looking forward to your next posts. Greetings from the Netherlands!

  5. Does this mean you can't buy new stuff anymore?

    1. Well, let's not be ridiculous! :)

      Actually, that probably IS what it should mean...but that's not going to happen. What is happening is getting rid of a few big items and some odds and ends to make room for new stuff...there's always going to be new stuff!
