As you know from my last post, I’ve re-decorated the studio and have since been crafting a carefully curated collection of interesting things to put in it. Over the weekend we happened upon a local antique shop that I had never been in. We came across this really awesome antique black walnut carved wood accent shelf. I am in love with it. It reminds me of the old german carved cuckoo clocks and it kind of makes me dream of sporting pigtails, leiderhosen and drinking a tall pint of hefeweizen.
Anyway, I scored a great price on it with the dealer (50% off yeah!), and knew right away that it would sit on the wall right above my computer. Brian suggested that I display my squeak toys on it. In his words, “a triumphant squeak toy”. A different one every week. And “Squeak of the Week” was born.
Every week, I will post a different vintage squeak toy from my collection. I have many. A few years worth, give or take a week. And they are all different. This will be fun! Follow along on my Instagram #michelemelcherillustration and on Tumblr at Squeak of the Week . ENJOY!
