  1. Victoria, what great finds! I loved playing Old Maid with my sister when we were small-we would play for hours.

  2. Love the Old Maid cards. I remember an older cousin having a set of Old Maid cards when I was little - I was so envious

  4. seeing 'Old Maid' again brought back some memories. You found some lovely stuff. Tala stuff is fandabbydozy. Im finding it more difficult to find things but my recent CS trip was surprisingly good..... pictures to follow.

  7. Love what you have found especially the cards, though I am affraid I don't know the game. But I always buy games for the cards to craft with and then I am reluctant to use them hehehe! To tell you the truth, we always start the year decluttering. Januari usually is too cold for outdoor markets and I don't like indoor markets. I went to the good will centre twice to bring a car load of things we don't need anymore, and I think I can get our station wagon filled up with these kind of things at least twice again. So I only brought treasures away!
