Thrifted treasures

It’s been a long couple of weeks and I have become increasingly stressed and short tempered. So today I was irrationally thrilled to finally have the chance to trawl through five thrift stores and score some real treasures:

A sweet little hobby horse!

Another fixer upper dolls cradle. I’ll paint them all in spring (a month away!) and decide which to keep and which to sell. Before I run out of space hopefully.

A hot air balloon softie. It’s a bit grubby and not brilliantly made so I’m going to try drafting my own pattern. A softie tutorial perhaps?

  2. I love the horse! You do not see many of those around here any more. Also, the doll bed is lovely and I too know your balloon tutorial will be pretty spiffy! πŸ™‚
