Presenting my little toy shelf!

Postby chambychick » Sun Jun 22, 2014 10:08 am

As a lot of you know, I was struggling with telling my boyfriend that I collect vintage toys. After having a heart to heart one night I told him. I can't remember if I mentioned it but he basically said I was very silly for not trusting him. Lately he's been teasing me saying "wait, you're a VINTAGE toy collector, no how horrible" accent on vintage. Basically just making fun of how silly I was. We even went thrift store shopping yesterday and I found two ponies! Then after checking to be sure he was ok with it, I now have my own vintage toy shelf in our studio room!!! I am beyond thrilled to finally take my toys out of the closet and display them.
Most of them are in MA, but I have a small collection here :) he has been very supportive even saying that if I want a collection like this ( only my whole collection) I shouldn't let how society thinks hold me back, I shocked go for it. Which I found really encouraging :) I'm very lucky :)

I am so happy for you! And I have one of those shelves so I may be stealing your idea. I am really glad that your boyfriend has been so encouraging.

Larissa, I am so happy it went out great for you.
What did I say????? ;) A great husband always supports you in everything you do...I guess they think it's better than having one party to another with alcohol etc...

I love your shelf and especially the house in the bottom right-hand corner - what is it??? It looks soooo cute... :o
