Sunday Suncatchers

It may not have been a sunny day, but sunshine with friends is always welcome.  Today included some laughs, mold making, food, messes, and suncatcher Stablemates!

They are in process but added a splash of color to our lives. :)

Muscular Marx?

This threesome (two without tails) were found while antiquing and I think they might be old Marx figures (SM scale).  What impressed me were the details!  Muscling and open-mouth faces!  Not sure if they will remain as is or get cleaned up and Customized...

Pretty detailed and expressive for old OF plastic!

Anyone recognize these?

They remind me of carousel sculptures...

I have a few non-muscled old Marx horses and of course knew the big poseables and 1/6 scale guys.  These are something I had never seen, but I am enjoying looking at them.  Any info welcome.

What better way to charge into this weekend than to rescue this pair?!?  A Papo Knight with shield and lance and a Schleich Bashkir Curly.  Odd Couple?  Perhaps.

It appears my Secret Santa has received their box, so I am hopeful they enjoy.  Happy

Two Trees

Life has been so busy I have barely been able to worry about Christmas.  I actually find myself *craving* some of which I used to not enjoy.  My little trees at work and home aren’t photographed, but my night ritual of driving with heat on my back and looking at lights has been fun.  A thrift find was a free homemade CD of good Christmas songs I have been enjoying.

Had a good laugh at the um, interesting light job on one city tree juxtaposed with its neighbor over the river.  I think I tend to prefer nicely done lights and either all white or multicolored.  Just preference.

What are some of your favorite Christmas songs?  Any that drive you insane?  Classic or contemporary?  I tend to enjoy a mix and in small doses.
