An Americana Vignette

This is the little Ohio Art metal toy iron I bought recently.




This is a great old red metal Tonka dump truck in fine shape. It is from my vintage toy collection. The blocks are from a my favorite occasional shop, The Tattered Angel.


The little red metal ironing board is from my childhood home. It was in my laundry room in a 1950's Laundry Room Vignette.



Maybe I'll iron the wrinkles out of the flag!





Toys and Americana are a great combination!

  9. So cute Carlene. Like I said, we have so much in common. I recently bought a childs ironing board at the Star Mill for $4. I needed it to go with my toy iron. My older sister gave me alot of tin toys when she decided to down size. Alot of them were trucks. I love how you put this display together. So, so fun!

  10. Hi Carlene, what a great vignette. Reminds me of my childhood in looking at the iron and ironing board.
    By the way, I'm back from vacation and Frugal Treasures Tuesday is back up and running. Hope you make it by to join the party. : )

  11. Hi Carlene, your toys are so cute and they remind me of my childhood toys. I played "house" all the time which included doing the ironing on my little ironing board. What fun I had! My Mom still has her all metal iron, truck and little metal airplane with folding wings. She was one of three girls so her dad must have been buying toys meant for a boy. Thanks for the very nice comment about my party. I hope you will continue to come by to visit. I will be doing my blog as usual. There are some things I am exploring and decisions to be made so I just need time to work out these new possibilities. Thank you VERY much for being such a loyal participant at the party. See you soon.......... Shannon

  13. What a charming vignette. Love your ironing board. I have my childhood ironing board in the attic, but I do have my childhood iron displayed in the laundry room. I think I'd better get the ironing board out of the attic. laurie
