Little Worlds

My mom has saved so many toys from when my brothers and I were young. The other day, E took all the Cowboys and Indians {full of holes from being pierced with needle 'arrows' and covered with remnants of painted 'blood'}and created his own forest amid Grandpa's corn.

I can totally remember being a kid and having that narrow focus that allows you to disappear into your own little world for hours at a time. As a child you're so intimate with your belongings. As I went through some of my old toys, I was amazed at my detailed recall of the textures, scents and even where each little ding or scar came from. It was such a nostalgic experience, I've become inspired to save some of my own kid's toys for my future grandchildren.

My kids now play with the Legos and Smurfs that my brothers and I used as children! Some toys truly are timeless.

Your dad's corn is perfection in a garden!

I have already started my grandchildren stash of toys. We're definitely saving playmobiles and legos for starters. Treasures from the attic, to be sure!
