My Favorite Cabbage Patch Cuties!
When I was growing up I was obsessed with collecting unicorns! Everyone always bought me unicorn themed gifts for birthdays and Christmas. I had a huge collection of glass unicorns that graced my bedroom wall. And Lisa Frank was my favorite artist. Ahh, the 80’s, I miss that era of my life sometimes.
But seriously, how cute is this three pack of unicorn babies?!
