Bits of Fun!

I have many shelves in my apartment filled with lots of great goodies. The one that takes the cake, however, has to be my chippy white typer's drawer in the bathroom. I got the drawer at a flea market in my home town of Saratoga Springs, NY for only $4! Sadly that flea market has closed down a year or two ago....but not before I scored some awesome stuff. Over the course of about 5 years I've filled it with tiny vintage animals, people and furniture. I filled it up quickly once I discovered the Brimfield Antiques Show and especially after my trip to Germany 2 years ago (the best pieces came from Chemnitz and Berlin). I even had to take some little guys off to put older and more unique figures on. This is where it hangs now...contrasting nicely off of my turquoise walls, perched precariously over the toilet. (Luckily nothing has made it into the toilet...yet, lol.) I'll be on the lookout for another chippy white shelf like this one to start another collection! :)
