I wanted the toys to look like toys. Then I decided I wanted everything to look like toys. I’m not sure it was my best artistic idea, but I tried it anyway. I sort of like it. And sort of don’t. But you gotta admit … it’s interesting.

        1. I bought a new set of light that work on AA batteries — mine are ALL rechargeable — but I haven’t yet had the strength of character to remove the old lights. The new ones are a big bigger — I hope not too big. Guess I’ll find out. Eventually.


    1. Nutcrackers. One supposed to be just like the one in the Nutcracker Suite. The other one is dressed like a cowboy which I bought for Garry because I thought it was kind of cute. They have no real use, of course, just decorations. But they are bright and pretty.

  1. Considering what passes for toys these days, these photos are as good as any for the subject. I’m sure the dawgs would find a lot of things around the house they’d consider to be “toys”…


    1. For Duke, anything wood is a toy. Coffee table, chairs, handles of brooms. He isn’t picky, either. Eventually, I’ll own an all aluminum house. Gibbs and Bonnie like the stuffy ones until they dismember and gut them. But that’s where all the FUN is!


        1. Well, it’s simple genius. All it requires is a right sized tree, a BIG black plastic trash bag … and either an attic or a basement. And a kid who can haul it down or upstairs πŸ˜€


    1. I have a lot of toys — old toys. I used to collect them. Now, I just have the remainder of all those toys — a few hundred dolls and teddy bears and all that. I love them. Kids love them but their parents don’t want to be bothered with toys that require a semblance of maintenance. That’s why modern toys are all plastic crap. It’s not the kids … it’s their folks.
