Push Puppets


This is our wooden push puppet collection, we keep them in large apothecary jars in the kitchen. We collected vintage and new puppets and they are always very inexpensive. We have stopped adding to this collection because the kids are getting too old to play with them. I have used them to decorate tables during birthday parties, they look great and young and old guests enjoy them.

Love all of your collections, this one is no exception. I remember these from when I was little. My mother collects vintage toys and I'm sure she has some of these in her mas table decoration for parties. I might need to raid her stash for my 3 year old's next party.
p.s. sorry about your tomatoes...I left a response on that post> Have a great weekend...hope you find some great treasures!

Wow, not sure what crazy button I pushed that did that botched comment...it should have read: My mother collects vintage toys and I'm sure she has some of these in her barn. I love the idea of using them for table decoration for parties...
Once again..have a great weekend!

I LOVE Felix and your delightful collection... how can you NOT smile, NOT be happy, NOT be swept up in a rush of childhood memories while looking at this collection of youth?! How fabulous!
(By the way, just so you understand ... okay maybe only a little bit....what's wrong with me, the first time I saw color t.v. what was showing was FELIX.... he's black and white!!! I thought my Dad had lost his mind and bought another black and white t.v. by mistake! And, to top it all off, I had gotten so used to Perry Mason, Lucy and all that in b & W that I hated it when it came in color!)

What a coincidence...I use to collect these guys as well. They are all in boxes now. I just might have to pull them out just for fun!

What a great decorating idea! I love how you take items that seem rather pedestrian and showcase their fabulousity (yeah, it's totally a word) in new, interesting ways.
