This past week I found myself reminiscing back to my early elementary school days. I guess it probably has to do with the fact that I have been helping my mom go through some old storage units that they(my parents) have had since I was little. While I have most of my childhood toys stored away at my house, or in use by Miss Liv, there were still a few things here and there that brought back some terrific memories. Before I knew it, I had gotten out my old Strawberry Shortcake dolls to see if they still held there sweet scent(umm...not so much).
After taking a few shots of my dolls, I packed them away, but I still had strawberries on my mind. So, in search of fun strawberry items, I hit the web and checked out a few of my favorite spots. I was not disappointed, there are tons of cute, kitschy, strawberry items to be had. Here are just a few. I hope you enjoy some of the sweet treats I found.

This is my very first image map; I put it together with the help of CoffeeCup Image Mapper. I think I might have found a new obsession.
Another item I came across was my old roller skates. I can not believe they still have the same laces I put in them when I was little. I specifically remember buying the laces with the ice cream cones on them. I guess by the time my sisters were old enough to start skating, roller blades were on the scene. So my skates did not see too much action after I grew out of them. Well, they are certainly getting a work out now, as Miss Liv has taken quite a liking to them. They are the first thing she puts on in the morning and as soon as she gets home from school. I love it when my kids get as much enjoyment out of my old toys as I did when I was young.
I hope your week is off to a great start.
