I found a few "treasures" on my recent chairty shop trips. I haven't got around to actually doing anything with them yet, but I will!
As you may know I love vintage childrens pictures either framed or in books. Here's one of my daughter's favourites:
And here's a recent find. I am still debating with myself if it is cute or if it is a little creepy. I am not sure about it, the toys look very sad. Maybe a fresh coat of paint on the frame will brighten it up. What do you think? Could anything cheer these toys up??
Here's a sweet farm picture. I can imagine a child happily singing along to this one. I like this one because the illustrations are realistic and not changed into silly looking animals with big eyes that look nothing like the real thing.
Next up is a chair just waiting to be upgraded. I carried this through Carlow town back to the car in the rain ,whilst guiding small boy and carrying other shopping. It was too nice to leave behind and I if you don't snatch things up when you see them in charity shops they are always gone an hour later. Believe it or not a man actually hopped out of his car and offered to carry it for me. I nearly fainted in surprise, there is a few gentlemen left in the world. Of course I declined.
Right off to get some sewing done before the school run begins.
