I got a new set about three times in my childhood, I actually have a box of it ( in the original box) that I got on Ebay awhile back…when I can find it, I will show you…lol

It is so fun to see these ads and remember the toys, or be lucky enough to have any of these items now…:)

I am just getting the baking started…not too much this year….but the decorations that were going up are up, the rest will wait until next year, Bailey gets into too many things now! :)

Oh, I wanted to show you what she originally used this pad for….it is meant for going potty…..but…..

Those ads are pure Christmas magic. I have a Marx dollhouse under the Christmas tree in my sunroom this year. I spy lots of fun furniture that I would have asked for in those catalog pages. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas with your pup!

Oh that was fun, Sandy! Thanks! I looked at close ups of the Christmas ornaments!

I have the nursery lamb and school house. I saw the Mary that goes with it at an antique shop recently but someone had painted and glittered over it. Ew!

I'm still on the look out for a tin dollhouse. There's one at a local shop for over $100.00. No thanks!

I plan on doing just a little bit of baking for my boy who gets out of jail for a couple hours on Christmas. ♥
