Yesterday's Child

I've never before participated in the Tuesday Display Chain (normally hosted by Misi at 1809 Gable House Musings (http://1890gablehousemusings.blogspot.com/), and now, on an interim basis, by Amy from Bumble Bee Lane (http://bumblebeelanecottage.blogspot.com/) Thank you, Amy!!).....
But Amy's theme this week embodies everything I so love....
So, I thought I'd give it a try.
My photography leaves so much to be desired...wish I could blame it on the camera, but I can't....so, I'm considering this practice. I will try to learn to be better....Thanks, friends, for your patience 'til then.....

Yesterday's Child:



Old dollies and shoes on an old child's wagon seat
(Pillows by Traci at York Mountain Primitives http://yorkmountainprimitives.blogspot.com/):


My old teddy:

Watermelon gal:

Old school pencil box:

More old shoes (I have a real THING for old shoes...):

Old wooden tops:

Old clay marbles:

Greiner doll:

More shoes....

Gameboard:

Teddies in an old wagon:
(The one on the left recently arrived from "across the pond" from Angi at Drakestone Primitives (http://drakestoneprimitivescountrycabin.blogspot.com/)....   The other two are little mohair ones I made a long, long, time ago....)

A few samplers (LOVE me my samplers!):




 Isn't she lovely?

Ta Da!! That's it....and that's me....
yesterday's child!

FUN! I used to collect tops--not just antique ones but all kinds. Then I took them to school and the kids went wild. They loved them! I really like antique marbles...only the big collection I had as a kid was swiped by my brother's friend...then a year ago(!) he returned them...but without all the old clay marbles...hmmmm
You have some wonderful stuff there and did a fab job with the theme. Your pics are just great as well!
Hugs,
Courtney

You've been holding back on us!!! I love all your collections and they are perfectly displayed. You MUST show us more of your house. I'm sure the rest is wonderful, too.
LOVE those samplers, and the tops, oh and the marbles, oh yes, the bears.....
Hugs :)
