Need a little advice.
I love sharing tips and hopefully so do you.
Let me preface by saying I have been gathering and shopping madly for all the fall shows coming up, my Ohio Valley Antiques booth and specifically The Rural Society Fall Show.
I plan on a offbeat theme incorporating holidays.
Today at the Springfield Antique Show I may have made an impulse purchase that could be one I will rethink later.
No, you are not seeing ghosts. I purchased not one, but two, talking Casper the Friendly Ghost dolls. I should say, one talking, one screeching unintelligibly.
I may have overpaid a bit as well.
Why, you may ask?
I adored Casper cartoons as a child. Many, many, many, years ago.
I could not resist.
Halloween being the favorite holiday of all in my mind, I figured what the hey, I will love them myself if no one else chooses to take them home.
Now for my question to you.
Any tips on how to clean their grubby little terry cloth bodies?
If so please do share.
Now for my tip to you...
Have you ever been in desperate remodel mode, wanting to hang or rearrange a painting or wall accessory and cannot find the gosh darn hammer anywhere?
Cannot wait to pound that nail and get your newest vintage acquisition placed just so?
Today I was in just that position.
When in need, improvise!
An empty wine bottle will serve nicely as a hammer as long as you are just tapping a small nail into drywall. I happened to have one conveniently at hand. Problem solved.
A warning though, do not leave your dead wine bottle where little ghosts could get hold of it.
Who knew wine really had spirits?
Sorry, couldn't resist.
Let me know what magic cleaning solutions you have for your vintage finds.
I have to put the Casper's to bed now.
"I'll never be nuthin" but a scary old ghost without any friends..."
