I love to these random, specially saved items - we all have collections like these don't we? I rather like your phrase for the trays - hideously cute really sums them up! I remember how they used to advertise those button attaching gadgets at Christmas - as a child I'd have been thrilled to get one, but I doubt any grown-up would have been thrilled!xPS I have a tea caddy with the same picture on!
Aww, what a lot of lovely treasures and nostalgic memories Carrad. How lvely to have these things to remind you of your lovely Mum, and in lovely old cases too! Have a lovely week,Claire xxx
C,What an incredible find. In many ways such a random collection of seemingly unconnected items, but the special place they were found makes them such a treasure. As for the Ronco Butoneer, Christmas past encompassed in a piece of 1970s ephemera - file with soda syphons and Ronco Record Vacuums!Wonderful N xx
Being an older reader (but not thinking of myself as one, so thanks for reminding me of that!) I do think that looks like Arthur Askey!
