I've been sorting baby clothes for an upcoming consignment sale. The memories attached to those tiny little garments, all sorted and sized, hanging in neat little rows. A catalog of our family's little beginning. But, I fought back the urge to pack all those things away. To help, I thought about the new families that would hopefully create new memories from these clothes and I began dreaming up my own family's future.
I hope to have a brick and mortar shop in the next few years. I'm always envisioning how the inside will look, what the decor will be, and how to entertain the little ones. So, here are some things I'd love to have around in my future plan.
|Sweet vintage children's clothing, like this 1940s newsboy cap from the BabyTweeds shop on etsy.|
|And everything made by SewnNatural will be a beautiful addition to the shop, like this Dressy Cape. This hooded shrug is made of boiled wool. |
|And this little pink Circus Elephant by cartbeforethehorse is an artiulated, DIY paper doll. I love that they have reinvented the old fashioned paper doll with a modern twist.|
|Not necessarily for the babies, more for decorating the nursery, is this mid-century navy blue suitcase. I have seen many new nurseries decorated with vintage cases such as this for a world traveler type decoration theme. And a handy way to store items you don't want to look at, but need to own. This case is from TheWhitePepper on etsy. I would definitley love to add that ship to the decor, too.|
|And a forever favorite of mine are the unique dolls and toys made by TIMOMHANDMADE on etsy. I love this gray bird doll and so many others. I hope to someday have one for my own home, if I can only decide which one to get. |
I'm sure this will not be the last of my favorite things. I'm always inspired by the fine things I see on etsy, and I'm always planning a dream. Hope you have a memorable week!
