I blogged before about my love for tiny plastic things. As a birthday present to my self I bought a Jar of Whimsey and a vintage crewel kit from my new favorite internet store, Tiny Things are Cute. Oh My Bob, I love them all!
The back says it’s big enough to make a pillow or wall hanging out of. I think I’ll frame this and hang it up somewhere. I love the funky shape of the tea pot and the bowl of fruit. This was a total impulse buy, but it’s worth it! I love it too much.
The next piece must come with a warning. These are the highlights from the Jar o’ Whimsy. It was hard picking out the best stuff since it was all great stuff but the following were really amazing bits of treasure. I’m still in a tizzy over this jar of awesome mostly plastic toys.
The weirdest piece by far is the half orange half bird thing. According to the information on his feet, he was made by the Disney Company. I haven’t bothered to look but I wonder why.
I love the gavel and the cat with creepy yellow eyes. Come on, it’s a plastic gavel! Now I can bring order to my tiny plastic court! Assuming I had one. (Note to self, make tiny plastic court, stat!) The butterfly pin is very fancy and something that my younger self would have treasured for ever. It’s now in the secret hiding spot in my jewelry box. And no, you can’t have it.
The piece de resistance is the telescope. Why? Because when you look in it, you see a picture of Lucy and Ricky! How epic is that?!
This jar was full of whimsy (and puffy stickers! And tiny erasers in the shape of stuff! And little charms for a charm bracelet!) and general stuff I would have hoarded as a kid. This is not a paid endorsement, just a gushing fan post.
Customer service was great and they are really responsive on their FB fan page. I ordered a jar for my sister (and frequent commenter) Maritza to cheer her up and Caryn, the owner, asked if there was anything in particular that should have been included. Plus I got a free little gift with my order! I love tiny free things!
My day has been officially made!
