Happy October! My goodness, I cannot believe it is October 1?!?! I also cant believe how dark it is getting so early in the evening. Why is it that this is a huge surprise to me every year? In the spring I will be surprised how long day light lasts, go figure.
The last prompt for Blogtember was yesterday. I never got around to posting because it required me to dig in boxes. Ain’t nobody got time for digging on a Monday! I certainly didn’t want to miss out on the post topic though because I have so many things I want to share it was hard to pick one.
The topic: Share a photo of something old. Maybe something that has a personal history for you, that was passed down to you and has special meaning to you. Tell us about why it is special.
When I was in high school, we lived in Atlanta. Every month on a certain weekend, there would be a HUGE antique show downtown. One weekend my parents thought it would be fun for us to go and check it out. We weren’t really sure what to expect to find at it, but it was something to do.
Upon arrival I was mesmerized by all the different items they had! Sure, there were lots of booths with things you would expect to see at an antique show. Furniture, jewelry, clothing, war memorabilia, etc. What was I interested in you ask? The toys that were popular when I grew up! We were closing in on the 20 year anniversary of many of the toys and shows that were near and dear to my heart. Most specifically the Care Bears!!!
