Yep, it’ll be a 2 parter. One day I’ll take you through the toys and accessories. For now here’s a peek at th clothes, all thrifted or gifted.
The smocked dresses. The one on the left is exactly what my gran made me to wear as a little girl. She has arthritis now so it’s nice to knoq tht if I have a little girl they will be able to wear the same sort of sweet dresses I wore.
The rest of the dresses including a $10 christening gown and two vintage nightgowns:
The rompers and overalls (photo taken seperately. I hung them up last weekend after the dresses, oohed and ahhed over them then apparently put them away without taking a single photo! Duh!) The blue overalls secon from the right are a size 2 swimsuit. Imagine a little cowboy or cowgirl running around under the sprinkler in those! And that romper, third from the left? Favourite thing ever. EVER. Handmade with vintage style fabric.
That one little romper is the definition of ‘why I thrift’:
Not all of it is thrifted though. Other than the little blue newborn socks all these handknits are gifted. The vest is from Lisa and is so sweet and tiny. The rest is from my mother. I was supposed to sell it on etsy but over time as it became clear that having a child would be so hars and my mum developed carpal tunnel and doesn’t knit much now I decided that I preferred to keep it. My baby will be wrapped in the most beautiful handknits:
There’s also a pile of ‘other stuff’ too – sheets, blankets, fluffy diaper pants (like I wore, real old school!), a couple of prefold diapers and the only brand new thing in the baby basket – a snappi which for those who don’t know is the modern version of diaper pins:
So…there’s your peek into the first of the plastic tubs. Now you know how bonkers I am, how much I enjoy thrifting and that I am totally going to have the best dressed baby in the world.
