And now, on to today's blogpost...
Not too long ago, I was working away in my studio, and all of a sudden, out of the blue, my mind conjured up an image from my child hood - TROLLS. You know the kind of little dolls popular in the 1970's, with the long, flowy hair? I have no idea what made me think of it, but suddenly I had to have a troll!
So, I went to ebay and did a search and oh my goodness, there are TONS of trolls for sale there! I got lost in a bliss of trolldom. Big trolls, tiny trolls, huge lots of trolls. Did you know there are two-headed trolls? and horse trolls? Anyhoo, after a long search I found two trolls that were calling my name, and I was lucky enough to win both auctions!
Meet my new little friends...
Hal is on the left. He is a new troll - part of a set of five that spell Bingo. I hear people bring trolls to bingo halls for good luck. I love his yellow hair, and the fact that he proudly states he is a winner!
Hoagy (on the right) is a vintage troll from 1984. It's hard to see but he has a big orange elf hat. I love the sweet expression on his face and his wild white hair.
Don't they make a great pair? They now live with me in my studio and make me smile every time I look at them. I say indulge your childhood loves whenever possible.
What did you love as a child? Is there a toy that is calling your name?
Thank you so much for visiting today, and I will see you again tomorrow!
