It does exist!

I have searched for this toy for a very long time. I had all but decided I made it up in my mind. I asked on message boards & searched ebay but just could never find it. It was one of the childhood mysteries, did I really have that toy? I even remembered that my Mom's boss gave it to me for Christmas. I also remembered that it was not my Mom's idea of a great gift, lol.

So, tonight I was searching for a image of the Tootsie Roll Owl, when I saw a really dark thumbnail, could it be.....was it really my beloved mystery toy?

It is....it really is my toy! All this time I was searching for "Tootsie Roll Candy Machine, when all along it was called "Toot Sweet".

As long as I have searched for this toy, I do have to admit that if I still had it.....and if I could sell it for that crazy amount of money.............I would!!!
Here's a link to an Ebay auction I found, crazy I tell you!

More auction goodies!!

First, please ignore my ugly walls. I'm hoping someday soon hubby will get these old walls updated, maybe? I hope!

This table was my big purchase of the day. I got it for $17.50. That's a little higher then I wanted to pay, but it was the perfect size for the spot I wanted a table in.
The boxes on the bottom shelf were all in a box for $1.
I thought this shelf unit was perfect. It fits perfectly right where I was thinking it would. It's even on wheels. I got it for $2.50.

In this picture, I got the cute little mirrors. They were in the auction box with all the decorative boxes & other stuff Ashley took. That box was $1. The shelf below them, with my CTMH stamps on it was thrown in with the shelf below. I think it's actually a video tape holder.

In this picture you see the brown shelf unit. I got that for $2.50. I have all my scrap papers sorted into it. It's working great! Out of all my attempts to sort scrap paper, this is the best by far.

My Clip it Up is bigger then yours!

So, I brought this home from an auction last weekend. Boy, did hubby look at me strange when I bid on this, notice I said "bid", that's cause everyone else was looking at me strange, too! No one bid against me! This thing has a stand on the floor & is over 4 feet tall. I got it for $1 & no matter how strange those people looked at me, I knew I got an awesome deal!
I already had the shower hooks from my curtain rod clip it up I've been using for a year or so, now. I just used those for this, too. I had to
go pick up a few more hooks.
I have it pretty close to me, so I can just reach over, twirl it around until I find what I want. I honestly didn't know I had this much stuffed in drawers!

Easter Bunny

We took McKayla to see the Easter Bunny at the mall. I was really surprised how cute this bunny was, rofl. Usually you see some pretty creepy bunnies!

We weren't sure what McKayla would think of sitting on bunnies lap, but as you can see, she loved him!
