Toys of Yesteryear

Old miniature ninepins alley and inking padSlowly the Christmas decorations are put on display in the house to the delight of children and adults.
This is an opportunity for me to highlight objects found in the past such as my little gray trunk and this old bear, “Isidore Prosper,” finding a use for an old bell found on the web at “Les Enfants du Marais”.

Skipping rope Old miniature ninepins alley
Old french school book Old bear

Displaying toys of yesteryear worn by time and so poetic.
Skittles, compass, old inking pad, school books and jump rope-crashing the party.
