Charming Vintage Suzy Homemaker Toys

Tonight I'm having fun exploring vintage Suzy Homemaker toys by Topper Toys.

The Suzy Homemaker Super Ovens are smaller than they look in pictures. I love the teal color! They featured lights, working burners and working ovens. An early precursor to EZ Bake Ovens.

Here's another version of the Suzy Homemaker oven, from 1968.

The Suzy Homemaker blender really blended sodas and malts.

The Suzy Homemaker Ice Delight Maker let kids make what we would call "snow cones" nowadays.

I'm a bit skeptical about how well the Suzy Homemaker ice cream maker worked.

A stand mixer was part of their kitchen toys line, too.

As a kid, I don't think I personally would have been very excited by the Suzy Homemaker Supergrill.

Stunning Vintage 1940s Jewelry from DeRosa and Reja

This sterling fan brooch pin from Ralph DeRosa is likely from the 1940s, but seems to have an Art Deco 1920s look to it as well. I love the vivid blue stones!

Here's a lovely yellow lotus flower necklace by DeRosa - perfect for Spring!

This DeRosa brooch is described as "kite-shaped." It features faux emeralds and a cabochon. Love the color!

This lovely topaz flower brooch by Reja also caught my eye. I'm not sure I'm ready to become a brooch-wearing middle aged lady yet. Perhaps I'll wait 10 or 15 years and then start!

I am so enchanted with this ballerina pin and set of matching earrings. They're by the Reja company, sometime in the 1940s or 1950s.

Hope you enjoyed a look at these fabulous vintage jewelry pieces I found on eBay!

These leather pink pre-walkers are also by Momo Baby. They sure like butterflies!

These butterfly slippers for toddlers sort of hurt my eyes, but I like how different they are.

Happy Spring!
