Festive Frolics

As you can see, I went a little overboard buying old toys at the Vintage & Handmade Fair last Saturday (a wonderful day, as always). But look at those wonderful old packets! I also got some barmy kittens...
...and I got quite a few vintage kitschmas decorations too. When I was photographing them, a tragic scenario appeared.
Snowbaby forgot to look both ways while he was crossing, and was knocked over by a a reckless reindeer. He was very nearly trampled underfoot! Fortunately, Santa was able to pull up in time, and the poor little snowbaby escaped with just a few bruises. Phew!

The snowbaby tableau cracked me up. Be more cautious, snowbabies! Great finds!

Is that a solitary dolls head I can see in the third picture..?

I'm disturbed by the idea of a two-piece jigsaw!

Hahaha, I LOVE snowbaby. I love that snowsuited Maggie Simpson look.

I love the Christmas decorations. They're such a sign of the times, aren't they? In innocence we sometimes show our darkest societal biases. White, snow-bound babies? Kinda creepy now but then, not at all.
