You will never guess, in a million years, what this figurine is.
Ear of corn?
An Ottawa Indian?
Here's a picture clue.
Mr. Green Jeans in flips flops?
A farmer in flip flops?
One last clue before the reveal.
A girl with a ponytail?
I'm as clueless as you are, but when I saw it at a garage sale a couple weeks ago,
I had to have it!
Today I Googled "Ottawa, Kansas Chinese" and found listings for restaurants. ha!
"Ottawa, Kansas history" gave me Ottawa Indians and WWII internment camps populated by German and Italian prisoners of war.
By the way, the figurine is marked "Japan".
It's not even made in Kansas! ha!
He is made of "china" though! heehee.
Just had to share one of my more unusual aquisitions.
There is no accounting for my taste in bric-a-brac!
And now here's that other pincushion.
I just bought it .
I love old tomato pincushions.
This one is velveteen and came with the pins and needles you see pictured.
$1.00 at a local antiques flea market.
I couldn't pass it up!
And speaking of pincushions,
don't miss my hand made pincushion giveaway in my previous post!
You have until Monday night to join in!
