happy dance.....happy dance!

I'm doing the happy dance! Look what has wandered over to my house.....


Workbaskets! Yaya! I've never seen any before. I didn't know that they were that dainty size!


I am now the proud owner of over 40 copies, the dates ranging from the late 60's to the late 80's. I have yet to go through them all, they came from some Grandparents I have in NY. My mom's dad and his wife are the best at sending what I call an "everything box". Two boxes came today containing the workbaskets, as well as some videos and books for the little ones. They would send the best stuff when I was little. One year they sent some packages of plastic ants...I think my poor mom was finding them for years. Maybe we got a little carried away, but hey, what else does one do with plastic ants....other than hide them in the laundry, and in the teacups, and the pantry, and the drawers, and wherever else we could reach....
