Show & Tell Friday

Show & Tell Friday is hosted by Kelli. Click on her name to visit other great show and tells!

I'm almost too tired this week to do a show and tell....almost ;) Reagan has been teething and it's been an interesting week to say the least. All I can say is THANK GOD for Veggie Tales!

Alright, now for my show and tell. My Granny bought these figurines for me..hmm...either when I was just about to leave high school or shortly after I rented my first apartment. They are two of the Three Musketeers. They're made out of some sort of plastic/resin material and affixed to a marble base with a felt bottom. I'm sure they're not valuable at all and they have no identifying marks save for a sticker on each which reads "RRA 99655" and "RRA 99656". But I dearly love them. Mostly because they came from my Granny, and secondly because The Three Musketeers is one of my favorite books and also one of my favorite movies! (Unfortunately the subsequent movies in the Dumas triology have not been as good...well Man In the Iron Mask was actually pretty decent...but none of them really follow the books at all!)

To be honest, and I never really noticed this til now, they actually look like the SAME Musketeer just in different poses...but I prefer to think of them as two of the original guys..hmm...D'Artangan is missing too!

Anyway, here they are! Thank you for looking!


  1. They do look very cheerful. No doubt after an adventurous night on the town! :)

    Thank you for sharing them.


  2. Those are a fun keepsake from your grandmother!

  3. How cute!! It would be nice to find the third of the set some time.

  4. I had to laugh about Veggie Tales. I took our 5 year old grand-daughter, Miss Jelly Bean" to go see the "Pirates Who Don't Do Anything". Trust me, they didn't! I did it for her and she is STILL talking about going to the movies with her GIGI! I remember reading # Muskateers in High School for Literatre cass. The movies rarely do books justice!

  5. i so remember those.....they were on the mantel in that apartment in montgomery.....sorry i havent had the time to do my s&t today.....love ya

  6. Those are certainly unique. It would be fun to research them and find out if there's a third one to make the set. I love the Three Musketeers, too.

  7. Your figurines are very neat!
    The teething years are hard,
    you don't know sometimes if they
    are sick or not with the teething.
