Hey everyone! I’m having fun creating with the ” Party Games” collection this month. I found this little sectioned wood box at the craft store a while back, and decided I wanted to create something showcasing some of the darling little elements from this line. I adore these photos of my niece and nephew (from the 70’s), that were taken when they were playing in Grandma and Grandpa’s yard one summer day. These images .. with these photos ..just make me HAPPY! They made their mom ( my sis) pretty happy when I gave this to her also 🙂 Sure brought back memories for us both.
I used 3 dimentional foam square to adhere the die cut pieces to the wood box, to give them even more dimension.
I love the bright and colorful game and toy images in this collection. The other day as I was going through some things in the spare room closet I ran accross something from my childhood, that I had almost forgotten about. It’s amazing how toys that seem so simple now, seemed so entertaining to us, years ago. When I was little, my Aunt Ede was the person who took care of me during the day while my parents where at work. This was one of the toys she had the I remember clearly. When my Aunt passed way, my parents had this at their house, with their toys. They have 14 grandchildren so I know this was played with by alot of little ones. Among those grandchildren were my boys. Maybe someday?? I’ll have grandchildren that will play with it??
I love it.. simple , sweet, and colorful! No batteries, flashing lights, graphics, or buttons. Remember toys like that? lol
Other toys that were my favorites….. My pink kitchen set, barbies, tinker toys, my dolls ( with the bottle that looked like it really had milk in it), playdoh machine, beauty shop doll head, (who’s hair you could wash and fix), Candyland, Operation, and later.. the Dating Game (whoo hooo) lol. But most of all , I LOVED coloring books, paint my number, and just recycled paper my mom would bring home from the office for me to draw, cut and glue with. Go figure:)
What were your favorite toy or games as a child? I’d love to hear.
