Pictured above is a snippet of a few of my vintage toy collectables. I came across the spinning top toy yesterday in an op shop and I saw it sitting there and gave it a go to see if it still worked, it did in perfectly good order, I did leave it there but had to go back for it as it wouldn't leave my mind!! I have always admired these as children's toys and love the look and feel of vintage toys.
Here is a snippet of my collection of Beatrix Potter books that I came across at a friend's garage sale, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw them in a lovely big pile together as Peter rabbit and friends are favourites of mine, of course I had to have them, some have the original stamps!!!
These will go into the Nursery when it's all set up, I do plan to add to the collection, there are more than pictured here, I just wanted to show a few of the old original ones.
Pictured above: baby bunny rug with crochet edging
As promised the finished result of my crochet edged bunny blanket, I am very happy with how it turned out, at first I couldn't decide what style of edging to go for but in the end went with a shell edging which I think suits a baby blanket well. I used a "feathersoft" wool which is amazingly soft on the skin, perfect for a baby. I already have another one ready to start and can't wait to do variations in colours for the edging. Will probably have to do a few to put away for presents also I think.
I couldn't resist a picture of my latest op shop find, a practically brand new Tupperware container in perfect condition, it has sparked off a new love for tupperware, there were also matching cannisters which I think I will have to go back for!! I am now able to start collecting kitchenwares again as we will have so much more space for it all in our new home!
Happy crafting and thrift finding wherever you are!
