My plan is to put it in my yard, as part of a fairy garden. My former kindergarten friend Grace was over with her doll, and we had to try it out.
I had myself a little adventure the other Saturday. While in Clovis, I had read in one of the 'antique news' papers that Pomona was hosting a street fair. Well, though I've lived in Claremont for 15 years, I had never shopped on Antique Row in downtown Pomona. I ventured out, early that morning, hoping that it boasted a similar charm to the Clovis street fair. But, alas, no such luck. The vendors offered a variety of interesting things (old toys, entire booths of clock radios), but in general, the selection felt more "yard sale-ish" than antique-y. Even the stores on the street seemed a bit junky and hard to navigate. However, I did find something. Look at this tiny bistro set. My big shoe is next to it so you can see the scale and size.
When I find a happy nook for it in the garden, I'll post a picture.
I had been hoping to find a beat up, old, red, toy truck, like this one pictured from Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Ideas 2011.
I looked high and low in Clovis, Bakersfield, and Pomona for an old red truck. What I found were fire trucks, fuel trucks, and tonka construction trucks. All were NOT what I was looking for, and the prices were crazy high! While at the amazing Hobby Lobby, I found this wannabe for $12.
Though it isn't really old, and it's a bit smaller than I had hoped, I will certainly have 12 dollars worth of fun with it!
