Vintage 1967 Walking Doll Thrift Store Find!

Another Goodwill thrift store doll find! This time a vintage 1967 walking doll from the Uneeda Doll Company (I love that toy brand name!) At least this one isn’t quite as creepy as the last one I shared!

Childhood Dreams Realized

You know one awesome aspect of being an adult who collects toys? You can make your childhood dreams come true by buying yourself the toys you wanted most while a kid but never got for one reason or another.

One doll I desperately wanted as a little kid was a Kid Sister doll. For some reason, it just wasn’t meant to be way back then, but I have one now! Just bought this little beauty on Ebay – a rare splurge for myself!

Were there any toys you wanted badly as a kid but never got? If you came across it today would you be tempted to get it for yourself?

A Few More Favorite Christmas Gifts From the Hubby

Hi everyone! I already showed you my adorable stuffed Scar, but thought I would share a few other favorite gifts from my husband (Steve) this year.

First, we have this Halloween wreath that he actually made for me (for years I have been telling him I wanted a Halloween wreath):

The best thing about this wreath is that all the decorations are removable, so you can redecorate it or swap stuff out whenever you want. He got me a bunch of other decorations (skull lights, creepy flowers, more spiders/cutouts/etc.) to use with it if I so wish.

He also got me this Anubis prayer bead necklace and Anubis & mummy statue set (the mummy actually goes inside the Anubis sarcophagus):

Steve bought me several books, all of which I like, but my favorites are these two:

80830089_2928397087194631_2062283144798666752_o

Both of these books are very thorough reference materials for two of my favorite subjects – world mythology and world literature! I especially like that both of these do not just center on Greek/European/American history, but are more expansive than that.

So there you have a further peek into my Christmas haul 🙂
