Today was a great day!  My best friend and I went out to eat lunch and then headed out to a couple of shops to see what we could find!

I have always loved Occupied Japan figurines, a love I acquired from my Granny.  Granny had so many sweet pieces around her home and as a child I loved looking at each beautiful piece, admiring all the fancy ladies in their beautiful dresses.  I would pretend, hope and dream of the day when I would meet my Prince Charming.

I was so happy to find this pair of figurines, a mirror image of each other.

I so enjoy these sweet figurines and all the wonderful memories they bring of my Granny! 
I am also so thankful that all my hopes and dreams came prince charming is amazing!

Love your sweet comments...

    Isn't it so neat the memories of things like that we have from childhood, that bring such warmth to our hearts.
    Love hearing ladies lift up and brag about their hubbies, that seems to be a lost art in this day and age we live love hearing it.

  29. I love these figurines! They remind me of an elderly man that my mother cared for in his last days. His home had been in family for nearly a hundred years and the antiques inside were mind boggeling. I can remember laying on the floor and looking up at the carved wood tables with little chandeliers and figurines sitting ontop. I would imagine the dances the figurines danced and the music played....Thanks for bringing back such fun memories!

  30. They are beautiful. I believe my mother-in-law had some very similar figurines.

  31. Great simple pleasure and they are beautiful..besides they remind you of a precious love one.
