A USSR Rocking Horse

This cute rocking horse was probably trashed because it had fallen apart completely. I put the parts together just for the photo. Too bad the beautiful folkloristic floral decoration was too damaged to be restored in it’s original state, at least not by an amateur. I couldn’t get a good price for it.

So finally today sold it for 5 Euros as a DIY makeover project to a young lady. Don’t know if the USSR origins of the toy meant anything to her, but so be it, at least one kid will play with it again.

One Castaway Old Cotton Sweater

One castaway old cotton sweater...

And a selection of the countless items I made from it:

And this is not all. Please note all these were sold and the photo's are very old.
