You may like my blog if you like art, photography, crafting, sewing, upcycling, cooking, baking, reading, traveling, thrift store finds, parenting, kid's activities, writing, the environment, natural living, activism, and more... I am dedicated to living an artful & creative life, each & everyday.
I am a nut for all things vintage. I love to go hunting for treasures, especially those from before I was born. I get giddy when I find a vintage book with beautiful illustrations or a roll of retro wallpaper or a beautiful hand embroidered table cloth. For a long time I have been wanting to record my finds here on my blog. I guess today is the day! So, for the first one I will show you perhaps the strangest, most pointless little knick knack I have ever seen. It has very little purpose, other than to make a tourist feel they have found a unique souvenir and to make someone smile... or even bust out laughing, which is what the manager of Victory Thrift Store did when I posted a photograph of this on their Facebook page for a contest on the best thrift store find. I won a $20 gift certificate! Pointless, I think not... did I mention it is a music box? Don't you love the little poem on the front?
Basking in the sun
Round he goes
the music plays
"Aloha" he says to everyone"
