If you follow me on Pinterest, (or Pin Interest, as my friend Billy calls it), you know I have been pinning pictures with Christmas trees on roofs of cars or in the backs of pick-up trucks for over a year. I have a Pinterest board titled "Trucks!". I don't know where this fascination came from but I have delighted in looking at those types of pictures. You remember that I wrote about finally finding a vintage toy truck on eBay back in August in this post. I have continued to look for vintage cars and trucks but they are hard to find. I decided to look elsewhere for suitable new cars and trucks. . First I looked through the toy bins at our house and Viola! I found a red VW Beetle.When we were in New Jersey at Thanksgiving, I stumbled on a display in a CVS Pharmacy with wonderful cars...I snapped up a few of them. I really like the way they look in my display...
I love the little cars with the doors and hoods that open. It meant tying on the tree was much easier. Can you see that I trim the back of the tree away, allowing it to lie flat on the roof?
Last week, a box was delivered here.
I was so excited...
Hobby Lobby! They had a 50% Off sale...
This also came in red but I kind of liked the black....it's much bigger than my other vehicles. $12.50.
She can handle the delivery of the bigger trees just fine
Funny parting line of 6 year old Charlie...
Bam (that's me): Charlie, did you see my cars and trucks with the trees on top?
Charlie (kind of sadly): Yeah, we used to be able to play with the red bug car
Do I have a truck and car problem? If I do, it's a fun problem to have.
I'll be back soon with a bunch of Christmas projects I've been working on. Hope the sun is shining where you are...it's warm but dismal here in Pittsburgh.
Tomorrow I'm going to church then out to breakfast and on to the Nutcracker with my friends Nancy and Maggie! I can't wait!
