The Game of Life.

Some oppy finds of late;

A Box Brownie – I’ve admired these in Kelly’s photos & knew it would be mine the moment I saw it on the shelf in a rather dull oppy while we were on holidays.


A daggy little Viking – another holiday purchase.

Some more things for my wall, that I actually got around to hanging up.


And last but not least… The Game of Life.

I LOVED this game when I was little, more than Monopoly, more than Trouble, more than anything, so to find this old version in fabulous condition almost brought a tear to my eye.
