    Aren’t they darling? My son had so many of those trucks. Did I see a future for them? No, I did not. Let that be a lesson to young mothers today!

    Like them all, but will say the first one is my favorite. :)
    Thanks for stopping by. Right now I am blaming it on the weather also.
    Have a great week.

    Those are all very fun, I have a fairly new, made to look old truck, perhaps I can put salt and pepper shakers on it for my hubby’s birthday tomorrow.
    Thanks for the great inspiration!

    TOO cute. I have a long,vintage green metal car that belonged to hubby’s dad on display in a side table in the family room, but NO trucks. shoot. They make a unique and cheerful display…nostalgic. just have to keep my eyes open!!! Thanks for the inspiration. Creative people out there!!! {{hugs}} to you Manuela!

    I love this idea! your trucks are so cute.
    I have 2 old trucks, a yellow pickup that belonged to my husband and a big Tonka dump truck that belonged to my boys. I’ve tried to decorate with them but it really bothers my grandson- he thinks all trucks are for playing and not for decorating.
