tin toys

I have a real weakness for wind-up toys, especially vintage ones. The one above is from circa 1965 and costs £55 from the ever-lovely Ben Pentreath. You can also get this monkey on a tricycle for £15. Sweet!

Can you tell I've been doing my Christmas shopping? Sadly I keep finding things that I like but nobody else would!


  1. I think this is the problem with christmas shopping. Often people buy eachother the presents in some ways they would like receive themselves.

    So when I receive odd presents from Dad, I really should use this as a hint of what _he_wants next year...

    Sorry I haven't been in touch much recently-off sick. I have been reading stuff but been too tired to comment much on anything. My boyfriend has been an angel though-he's done all of my washing up :)

  2. Aw, I'm sorry you've been ill. Hope you're feeling better now. Glad your bf has been a good boy :-) x
