Today, I have the unexpected gift of spending a rainy day with my favorite little girl. She had a scary reaction to a black fly bite and we both need some quiet time together. We're making the most of our spontaneous date by playing with her new collection from the weekend's flea market date... in her mind that flea market was heaven. Yes, I'm carefully cultivating the next generation of thrifters. She fell in love with a little box of Wade Whimsies. We bought an elderly lady's entire collection of porcelain miniature figurines that used to come with boxes of the Canadian tea, Red Rose.
These little creatures are perfect play figures for a 5 year old, and I believe we will be keeping our eyes open for more in the future. Although I wasn't familiar with Wades, I had a little collection of porcelain animals as a child, too. Do you remember your childhood collections?
