New Old Stuff

Thanksgiving is this week - I know - but I'll cover that the next few days.  Today I have happy treasures from my favorite antique mall to show off!

I love Holiday Open House time!


I love my cheap, naked fake Kewpies.  The boxed ornaments are a very, very garish gold.  The little elves will probably find their way on a wreath or something.  The loose ornaments were chosen by Big Sis.

Little Sis scored a $4 Madeline doll!


And an even cheaper mini Raggedy Ann doll.


Big Sis got a Beanie Baby chameleon and some rings.  We all scored on the book front!

I was very excited to find a Little Golden Book edition of Walt Disney's Once Upon a Wintertime.  The cartoon on which it is based (originally part of the feature film Melody Time) is one I grew up with, and the girls know it well.  Apparently my copy belonged to a little girl named Peggy.


Some variation on "I love you Peggy" is written on several pages!




I knew this one was a media tie-in.  I didn't realize the other Little Golden Book I bought was a media tie-in, too!  All I saw on the front cover was an obvious Richard Scarry illustration.


I didn't look at the monograms on their clothing!  This book is from 1959.  It's by David Corwin, illustrated by Richard Scarry, and inside it says:

                            Alvin, Simon, and Theodore are the three chipmunks who made one of the
                            most popular records to come along in many years.  It was called "The
                            Chipmunk Song."  Here are the three chipmunks in their first Little Golden
                            Book.



I normally try to keep my holidays in order, but I admit, I'm a little Christmas-happy right now.

    1. Luckily, it's a bit of a drive. Better to go every few months, so we can see what's new! ;o)
