Water Toys






These photos seriously crack me up! It is really funny the things man becomes obsessed with.  We have tried so many inventions to walk, float, run, glide and ride on water. These are some really cool inventions, from total redneck underwater air breathing to water skiing Queenie the elephant 🙂 I got a kick out of these and wanted to share, let me know your favorites!

For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with boxes.  It does not matter what kind, what they are made out of, or what size they are.  Basically if it can hold stuff and has a lid (preferable), then I love it!  I have boxes from all over the world and I have boxes that have traveled the world.  There is no end in sight to my obsession, well if “they” ever quit making boxes, then I guess I can stop! The collection I have now is of perfect specimens for display, storage or organization!

I cannot keep them all so here you go:
