Tuesday Treasures....Ya Ya Ya!

Hello blogger friends! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day and President's Day. It made for a long weekend for some of you. Jim and I had fun at a few sales and had dinner with our kids and grandkids on Sunday afternoon.

Today for Tuesday Treasures, I have some German goodies to share with you. My heritage is German and I am drawn to German goods. It's funny how you find a group of similar items when you are out shopping sometimes.

Isn't this little miss adorable? She is a hand puppet! Her head is wooden and she is in great condition.
I have a thing for puppets too.

I think I need a find a good German name for her...ideas?

This is a stern little German lady doll. The owner told me she was probably a cottage industry gal. Her outfit is detailed and I love her shoes. It looks like her face is made from nylons.

This is my most favorite find of the shopping spree! It is a darling board book, printed in German. It reads Old Rhymes with new Images (or Pictures). It is illustrated by Else Wenz-Victor about 1925. She was a very popular illustrator. Her work is just charming. As with other illustrators of children's books, I seem to fall in love with their work. I will be on the hunt for more of her work. I do wish my German was better...high school was a very long time ago!

This is a little paperback book, also with darling illustrations. I'm not sure of the date or who did the illustrations in this book. I need to spend some more time on this one.

This is a very small plastic pin. The characters seem to be in traditional costumes and it's just so cute.

My SIL Chris is also German....Chris Wirth. He enjoys German made items too. He told me I had a couple Christmas gifts coming. He had ordered them from Germany, so they were a little late arriving. No problem for me! I love presents any time!

This is a tiny Santa. He sits on a little wooden bench. He is holding a flocked tree. It's only about 2" tall.

This is just beautiful! It's a glass ornament with a little Christkind in the center. Pretty special, huh? Thank you so much Chris.

I'm linking up with Stephanie's ROSES OF INSPIRATION. SO many fun things to enjoy from her blogger friends. Pop on over.

The board book and the paperback are both amazing finds! That's my type of treasure for sure!

Dear Linda:
You asked me how I am doing my blog - only one way - except for a couple posts, I am resposting from 2009. I couldn't do it any other way. We are taking a table apart right now!! Work - work - work!
