Figurines

These are some of the figurines I have. There is a little guy playing an accordion, an old fashioned lady with fancy dress, and an old fashioned troubadour with musical instruments.

I used to collect all kinds, and most are all packed away right now out in our backyard shed. I want to get them out again someday.

I think these came from yard sales around the neighborhood fairly recently, well within the last 5 or 10 years.

When I was a kid, I’d go to the dime store, and first thing I did was get a new figurine. Most of these were animal ones, and I still do have some of them.

Then I got into collecting salt & pepper shakers, which are like novelty figurines, too. I have these in the house in a glass fronted china cabinet.

These two are my recent ones, of two tiger salt & pepper shakers. I got them at an antique store.

    • Thanks, JoAnna!
      Oh yes, for me too, I had horse and dog ones mostly. I’d get a new one every time we went to the dime store. So nice you have your mother’s angels now. 🙂
