When Collections Collide: Vintage Toy Trucks & Paint By Number Paintings

As my various quirky collections grow they often merge into one another.

Recently, my vintage toy truck collection welcomed a new friend in the form of a 1957 Tonka Farms stake truck found at an antique shop in Lodi, CA while on a weekend getaway with friends. Because I’ll never have enough of these fun display pieces to satisfy, I snagged it up for the bargain price of $25. As I have no studio to call home at the moment, I’ve been bumping into other collections awaiting display such as my amassing of unframed vintage paint-by-number paintings. I gathered a few of the nature paintings relevant to the current season to use as backdrops for a couple of my trucks. One painting fit perfectly tucked into a chippy wall shelf.

The rest served as scenery for the Tonka on the long road home, aka: our mantle. (Look out for deer crossing!)Do you have any quirky collections?
