A glass train that used to hold candy many years ago. I have been told that they were sold as gifts for kids with the candy to eat and the item to play with afterwards. I have told the story before that I am up in an old attic with a very leaking roof. Everything is just rotted and the floor is actually plaster ceiling and wooden beams. The attic had been ransacked for year with antique people stealing as much as the could and stuff is strewn everywhere. I look down and I have this glass train under my left foot. It was a great reward for a very sad adventure in an attic.
I am looking through the collection and I am missing the airplane. It must be in my toy cabinet. The car was my mom's that I remember seeing once in a while when it was brought up out of a big trunk every few years. I never thought I would ever own it.
The dog was given to us from my wife's cousin at the time the Aunt's place was being closed down. The cousin said they named it after one of the President's black dog at the time. The phone in the background did have a wooden mouth piece but that didn't remain with through all those years. They all have to be over 60 years old.
The reason the glass items are out and about is that I finally hung the shelving piece that I had pulled from the garbage. It hangs now above the built-in buffet in the dining room and the glass items were taken off of their shelf so the hammering vibration would not knock them down and break them.
We are very cold again today but warming up weather is promised for next week. I am ready for warming already. Thank you for stopping by today.
