I am only 31 and was born in January of 1980, so I totally
get the whole "feeling old" when someone calls the 80's "retro" or "old" LOL.
I am amazed that there are any surviving mermaid trinkets that lasted
in your craft space for thirty-one YEARS!!
Any crafty trinkets like your lil' mermaid would have been used up long before
that or, more likely, lost
in my craft space!
Nice job on the details and LOVE that mermaid and amazing fish tank! (And kitteh is cutey too
