What is your favorite Mexican dish? I usually order Chile Rellenos at a restaurant. There is a vendor at the swap meet who has an amazing array of 🧲 magnets from Mexico. Aren’t the tiny food dishes cute. They are a great addition to my collection. What do you order at a Mexican Restaurant?

🍽🍁🦃 BTS Have you ever made anything out of polymer clay? I showed my husband some tiny pies and he decided to make me one. He had so much fun he continued on making me mini food - including an adorable ham. Even the grandkids got in on it. 🥧 Watch this to see our behind the scenes preparation for our tiny Thanksgiving.

Self check-out or cashier? How do you like to pay? Throwback to when I needed to do a little shopping. 😂 I use self-check out. Do you think it’s faster?

Have you ever gone into @Target for one thing and come out with a cart full? That happened to me last night. I went in for some tiny suitcase ornaments. Which they did NOT have. And… came out with a cart full. 🤪 THEN - I had to order the ornaments online when I got home. But Grandma Barbie did get a nice new pet. And I’ve got a fun project for my husband to do. Let’s keep it a secret till we get back from vacation. 🤫 shhh… 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Do you have a good memory? I do not. But I love finding old things that help me remember. •What’s your earliest memory? Mine is being scared of Mr. Peanut 🥜 at the Atlantic City boardwalk Planter’s store. 😱 A man dressed in a giant peanut costume that wanted to shake hands with three-year-old me. 😱

What is your favorite Barbie House? I’ll have to admit that I’m really enjoying the trip down memory lane with all these vintage pieces I found at the Swap Meet. Which house do you wish you owned again?

Remember this song? 🎶 “When I was young
I'd listen to the radio
Waitin' for my favorite songs. When they played I'd sing along
It made me smile. Those were such happy times
And not so long ago
How I wondered where they'd gone But they're back again Just like a long lost friend All the songs I loved so well
Every sha-la-la-la
Every wo-o-wo-o
Still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling
That they're startin' to sing's
So fine 🎶

Do you like mysteries? I want to know the ending of a movie before I watch it. 😂 Opening these swap meet finds has been a bit suspenseful. Did you have any of the items that were in this house? I’m trying to identify where everything goes. 😱
