Over the years, I have found myself searching for interesting eclectic antiques at thrift stores, goodwill etc. - and what I always seem to bring home is a creature of some sort. Here is a shot of my most recent find, and I am sure there will be more to come on down the road.
In addition to the joy I get from playing Snow White, and surrounding myself with these fun finds, much to my amazement, they have become great learning tools for my daughter as well. Not only does she learn that some things are fragile, and others you can throw around, she also learns about different creatures and finds them at the zoo, park and while we look through her flash cards - who'd have thought!
