Playboy Covers

Over the weekend, I randomly stumbled upon a vintage Playboy at the Drake General Store with Jessica Rabbit on the cover. I didn’t know this existed! I don’t own many Playboys, but I’ve been searching for a third magazine to go with my Marge Simpson and Ginger Spice covers before getting them framed. I think it’s a good match.

WB’s Television Out Of The Box

On my recent trip to Los Angeles, I was lucky to visit the Television Out Of The Box exhibit presented by Warner Bros. at the Paley Center For Media. It featured original props, costumes, set pieces and video clips of some of WB’s most iconic shows. But what I loved most, was the collection of original animation cels and vintage toys from some of my favorite cartoons: Bugs Bunny, Tiny Toons, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Animaniacs, Scooby-Doo, and more.

If you’re in the L.A. area it’s worth checking out. My only wish was that it had a larger collection!

Muppet Autographs

I got my posters signed by all the Muppeteers – Bill Barretta, Matt Vogel, David Rudman, Eric Jacobson & Dave Goelz. Wow! A special thanks to Matt for making this happen.

Toy Collection 2

I bought a few more cutlery dividers to create another mini balcony. The new space allowed me to unpack most of my vintage toys which include: Star Wars, Muppets, Roger Rabbit and Kellog’s figurines.

Toy Collection 1

My toy collection is slowly growing, so I’ve been searching for new ways of displaying them within my toy cabinet. My agreement with Shaun is that I can do whatever I want within our display cabinet, but no toys outside of it. Fair enough. Our place isn’t that big. So, in order to get the best use of the limited space, I created a mini balcony for the smaller toys. I glued three cutlery dividers together to form steps. Take a look at the end result.

(Yes, our cutlery drawer has since been an unorganized mess…)
