Vintage Toys - 1940s Tin Army Plane

Today we found this super great toy airplane! It's from the early 1940s (or thereabouts) and was made by Marx Toys, one of the most popular toy manufacturers at the time. Fun fact : their brands produced the Rock em Sock em Robots and the Big Wheel tricycle!

Anyway, it's got quite a bit of rust happening, but I kind of prefer that to a pristine version. You can really see the 70 or so years on that toy. Obviously, it's way past play time, but I think it would make a great piece of decor. Maybe on a bedside table or perched atop a stack of vintage books?

So great.

You can find it here.

Thrifty Finds 8/15/12

The thrift store gods bestowed upon me this wonderful crinoline! It seems to be from the 60s or early 70s and is super poofy and soft. So great. Plus my circle skirts look wooonderful.

I also found this great dusky pink trench coat. It's officially the best. It's by London Fog and from the 1960s.

In the mail...

I had some fun shopping online for art supplies (because you can never have enough).

Pink Bird Monsters and other oddities.

Last night, a friend of ours came over with a selection of his Warhammer models and graciously allowed us to paint a couple of them. I was a little intimidated (they're so damn SMALL), but I had a ton of fun and it was enjoyable to try a new medium and paint tiny daemons and monsters. The colors I chose are completely NOT what they are supposed to be, but that was okay with me. :)

I have also forgotten what they are called. So...sorry.
