Little Things

When I was a kid, I used to collect little treasures such as toys from cereal boxes, Christmas crackers & vending machines, & keep them in a tin toffee box which I called my 'Little Things Box'. I'd spend hours looking through my prized collection... I remember in particular, a pink plastic poodle I loved, & a tiny deck of playing cards. I wish I had kept those relics of my childhood (remember Bretodeau's boyhood stash in Amélie?) - I'd love to see them again!

I still collect plastic toys & keep them in vintage cigar boxes. Here's a small sample from my collection. Some were bought from Covetable Curiosities' & A. Bel Emporium's Etsy shops. The rest I found foraging at secondhand markets. I love my collection of little things!
