Five (Photo Hunt)

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

FIVE



This weeks theme is FIVE and I wanted to share five of my little troll friends with you. I got my first troll when I was about 10. I can remember holding it in my hands and rubbing the hair for good luck. I'm sure I made plenty of wishes on it even though I don't remember any of them now. Somewhere over the years the troll disapeared and it wasn't given any more thought until I had children of my own. Once again the little trolls came to live at my house. Awe but once again children grow up and the little trolls found there way to the give away bins when old toys were sorted out. A couple of years ago, while shopping in a thrift store I ran across a troll. Ohhh I thought I want that, so in the basket he went. I knew my grandson will want to play with them someday. I now have about 10 or 12 of the little guys.

Well, that is it for this week. I hope you have enjoyed my collection. Also don't forget you can join by going to the

    I totally forgot about my trolls. When I was about 17 I started collecting them. I bet I had about 40 of them. I need to ask my mom where they would be.

    My Aunt Penny thinks the little trolls moves things in her home.

    I'll have my photo hunt up tomorrow. I had a little trouble figuring what to post, but I did figure it out.

    I had a Santa troll that was a bank give-away back in the late 60's. Used it as a Christmas decoration for over 30 years. But finally the hair turned yellow and started to fall out and a moth did a number of Santa-Troll's little red suite. But he sure was a cutey while he lasted!

    AWWW those are such cute trolls. My daughter has a doll in her room. She thinks it's pretty.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. It is amazing how big those little fingers/hands are becoming.

    I remember having a few troll dolls when I was younger too and would always bring one to school! I noticed that they started selling them again in the stores a few years ago but they didn't become as popular as they were in "our" days! lol Happy Mother's Day my friend! xoxo

    Sorry for coming by so late but I was out doing my Moms birthday and Mother's Day and just got back home.

    I love your picture for the hunt and the story was great. When I was younger, probably early 20s, we had the care bear thing going on. It kind of started when one person I worked with had (I think it was) Wish Bear on a wall at work. Next thing you know Wish Bear was on the floor. He ended up with a cast for several weeks and we talked about the fact that it seemed like he jumped on purpose. Anyway there were several care bears after that. For some reason your trolls and the story brings back that story. Thanks.

    Have a great week, and I hope you had a great Mothers Day.
