It’s funny how certain things catch our eye. Metal toy trucks? I’m not sure where that came from, since I was the type to play with dolls, and I never had a brother or even male cousins! But after seeing one in an antique store filled with little Christmas ornaments, I was hooked. I have been on the lookout for several years, but I could never justify the cost. I may have to rethink that based on the pictures that follow.
My little rusted truck was snatched up at the Flea Market held every Tuesday in Summerville, Georgia, for 10 dollars. That’s a bargain. If you are not interested in collecting pristine, in perfect condition trucks, you shouldn’t have to pay over 25.00. Mine has held office supplies in my office and was recently out on the deck holding flowers, so paying a lot is out of the question.
Little metal trucks have become a staple for Christmas decorating. Pairing them with vintage or new bottle trees, ornaments, and packages creates a nostalgic Christmas scene.
This little white Christmas truck with silver trees would go well with a silver themed Christmas and shows how even with the most elegant setting, a little truck has it’s place.
