Honey, it’s an old-school bee-mer
So many of my collectors have fond memories of the bee pull toys made by Fisher Price in the mid-20th century. Here, I combine this beloved toy with a 1930s Canadian honey tin and a familiar squeeze-top bear to make for a sweet tailgate party!
To get the warm, inviting glow, I used a strong light, positioned at the lower left, to illuminate the objects and create dramatic shadows. I particularly like how the varnished shelf provides a reflection of the scene.
