Child's Play

I spent some time this weekend photographing recent finds for my store.  I've been experimenting with backgrounds and lighting.  It's not quite where I want it to be yet, but I'm learning a lot!  The first four photos show items from the same estate sale - it was probably the best one I have ever been to.  It was a multi-generation family who was moving and they were very creative, artistic and well-read.  I picked up a ton of books, fabric and these great vintage items that would look great in a child's room:

Gruner Witkop Wooden Puppet, 1972, West Germany 

Adorable vintage nursery wall decor plaques - fable themed.  Aren't these great?

More wonderful nursery decor - colonial themed. 

Set of Matryoshka dolls.  I can't resist nesting dolls and pick them up wherever I find them.

Besides the finds from that sale, I took photos of a few more things I want to share with you. 
This child's suitcase was a yard sale find.  Great color and pattern!

Thrifted wall art.  I love faux bamboo anything! 

Thanks for stopping by!
