Home Treasure Friday

 Last week's HTF treasure was the little grasshopper that I found at my Dad's house.  Since then, I did a bit of research, and found out that it's most likely German made. There's a region in Germany in the Ore Mountains called Erzgebirge. They are famous for their little wooden figurines just like my grasshopper. He was most likely part of a musical group of critters.

So on a whim, I went on Ebay and found him a companion to play along. 

This little frog with his trumpet now completes a duo of musical critters! He was around $5.00 and I knew that he had to come live with me.
Enjoy your weekend!


  1. He's so cute!

    It's always more fun to play music with a friend (or more)

  2. For some reason, that little frog is stirring a faint memory. I wonder if I've seen him before. It's entirely possible my own grandfather had one.

  3. Wow! What a find! I really like the way these guys look together and now you have a duo!

  4. Ih, that is so cool! He did need a friend.

  5. Hello,
    They are cute together! The friend was a great find.
    Take care, enjoy your weekend!

  7. Aww! How sweet to have the two of them together. They look made for each other.
