Tiny Toy Treasures

Lots going on in my "real world" this week, so I won't get to do any blogging. I thought I'd post something to occupy everyone's time until I get caught up.

Here are some pictures of:

1. My kitchen "junk drawer", where I stash small toys. (People are always pulling it open, looking for spoons or such like, and they find this instead.) Some old things, some new, some childhood treasures I've saved since I was little...have fun rooting around!

2. An antique printer's tray that rests on my coffee table, filled with tiny toys and treasures. It started out as a sorting and display area for my vintage Cracker Jack and gumball machine prizes, but it's expanded beyond those categories. Click, zoom, and see what you can find!


  1. I love these, especially the Oscar Mayer whistles.

  2. fun! I have shoe boxes and hat boxes filled with stuff like this.

  3. oh goodness, what treasures! reminds me of the toy shop Uncle Fun here in Chi-town.

  4. You're just like us Tracy! My husband and I are both collectors of every thing including little treasures like these!

  5. I loved hopping around in your blog! I left comments here and there and now I'm going to put a link to this wonderful blog on my blog!
    I certainly enjoyed my tour! Can't wait to have another look and see what I missed!
    Bear Hugs,

  6. Hi Michelle, and thank you for all your kind comments! Glad you're enjoying the blog: I'll visit yours as soon as I can!

  7. I'd give anything to have the resources to get more antiques & collect items like this too, this is awesome
