Santas Playland

Howdy all! I feel like such a terrible blog friend because I don't have a camera, so I haven't posted! I have SOOOO much new, fun stuff to show and tell, I hope to do it soon. First, I want to have a give a way for a Halloween item. So enter by posting that you are interested and win a Blo Mold!!

I also am digging out the Christmas and have it about half decorated. My landlord had to jack up the kitchen floor (it was sagging, I think under the weight of the 1946 fridge and the 1957 stove! LOL! I didn't want to find myself in the basement by falling through the floor!

So that meant I had to take everything out and move it to the other side. Does anyone know how many times I have done this in the last year? Garage sales, holidays, etc. exhaust me because I am shifting shifting shifting junk! Anyone relate?

So while I had it out, I thought I'd better haul it upstairs. It's beginning to come together, so I realllly need to get a camera. Can't wait! But, I will show you something cool I saw on Dime Store Thrifts last post:

I have some of these things and love finding stuff from my childhood. My dream is to walk into a dime store that had been suddenly closed down, and left exactly as it was in the fifties or sixties.

my latest find at the thrift store is Santas Candy Wagon. I almost fainted! Two dollars and in mint condition! Love it soooo much!

Shifting stuff around?! Don't mention it, I'm moving house in 4 weeks' time, so it's all I've done lately. On the upside, I've offloaded heaps of crap, he he.xx.

Oh yes, to walk into an old five and dime store that was exactly as it was way back then! With the old prices, too! I have actually had a dream sort of like that, but it was rather scary.
