A More Economical Mode of Transportation...

Need a Lift? 
Tired of still pretty high gas prices?

Just because I am feeling a bit silly today...
(My excuse is: it's Friday!)
I share with you...

The Ship of the Desert
 (ta-da!)...


I found this little treasure amongst my Mother's "stuff" ...she moved out of her house about a year ago and my poor sister had the "joy" of sorting and sifting through most of Mom's "Stuff"...
I did get to help just a teeny tiny bit while we were home for the holidays last year (right before we moved up here to the North Country)...

In all of my 20-something years of living with my Mother, I NEVER saw this little wind-up toy. Isn't it cute?



A camel and his boy....

He's in really great condition. The key doesn't work any more, but the fur is not worn at all....

And obviously made in Japan...not sure if that means anything or not.  But I was charmed as soon as I saw the outside of the box...been holding on to him, waiting just for a silly, just because kind of day to share....

Happy Weekend everyone!

Until Next Time, 
STEPH
