Manoil Toy People ~Treasures From Grandma's Attic

Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I've done a Treasures From Grandms'a Attic post. Well, today's Attic Treasure is a fun group lead metal toy figures. Most of these were made by Manoil but I think one or two are by Barclay.

These were found in a large box carefully wrapped in tissue along with the other toys in the attic.

There are farm workers, brick layers, iron workers, and what look like shoe cobblers. Oh, and just one cow...I wish there were more animals, he's so cute!

Enjoy the photos! :-)

This collection is also part of the Vintage Love Market blog party over at Southern Lady's Vintage.

Vintage Fabric Note Cards

This weekend I spent a little time making some pretty note cards with my vintage fabric scraps.

I like to include a couple of these with fabric orders, but I might put together a few packs of 4 or so to sell. Not sure yet, I'll need to look into pricing and shipping costs for something like this and if it would be worth it. They're blank inside and come with envelopes, so they are useful for any occassion...and just so pretty to look at. :-)
Have a great week everyone!
