    I want, need, (and will probably have to) steal this! Love that the bunny is getting a G Ride on the back, too. Super clever and has got my wheels turning. Awesome, Ann!

    Two thrift store trips… Toy fail! …damn these kids that won't give up their toys! ::::evil laughter::::

    I've got an unexplained attraction to things on wheels (blush) I've got many antique pull toys and other oddities with wheels. This being the "big game day" I was looking for an excuse to go to Michaels. YOU"VE given me one and I thank you lots!
    I can't believe I haven't seen these pull toys before. I feel like the charactor Norm from Cheers when I enter both Michaels and Hobby Lobby.

    • I think it's awesome that you have an attraction to things with wheels! Wheels are super cool! I hope you can still find the turtle. Over Christmas, my Michaels had turtles, ducks, and one other critter, though I can't remember which.

      I really do want an old wooden fire truck that I can use as a serving platform. Might be time for another trip to the antique mall. Oh darn.

    Just got back from Michaels, somebody call a wahhhbulance cuz they didn't have any. I came back here to report my disappointment and re-read your 1st sentence. Hello – Christmas, lol. They were like on those ear phones things checking with each department. Oooops!

    I did find some really cute knobs on the $1 aisle though. NEVER a wasted trip!

    I've got a booth at an antique mall and I'm always out junkin' . I'll try to find me something for your challenge and watch out for firetrucks too.

  5. Oh no! I'm so sorry they didn't have some still in stock. My Michaels had them as late as MLK Day, and I haven't checked since. 🙁

    I'm glad it wasn't a wasted trip, in any case! 😀

    Okay girlie, this challenge/contest has been like a meaty bone to me. I just couldn't let it go, lol.
    I dug thru boxes of dust last night until I found some small very plain pull toys that I had packed away. I sanded, painted like a 2 yr old, distressed, decorated, and had a blast until 2am. I posted the pic at Flickr as directed.

    I wanted the horse to hold my paint brushes but hubs did the drilling so Pens it is, lol. The bunny holds a few sewing pins (not that much space there) and the funky sheep serves no purpose but thought it makes me smile.
