Playthings were on the docket today, it seems. A wee little high chair that I really MUST sell (as a grown woman, I already own four toy high chairs and I have no little girls, nieces or grand daughters.) A wonderful older Fisher Price Rattle Ball or Popcorn Popper. I love the wear on the yellow handle. That toy has been played with and enjoyed for many a child. The doll I am still researching. She looks like and feels like my very own Baby Tender Love doll from my childhood. But, she has a string in the back of her head and when pulled not only does it look like her neck is breaking, but she is supposed to talk. Sadly, the voice box is sprung and she doesn't talk like she should. She's still quite sweet and life like. If you've ever held a Baby Tender Love, you know what I mean.
In the back whatyou see is a spoon rack. I have had a spoon rack on my thrifting wishlist for quite a while now. Whenever I mention what I want one for - that person goes out and finds a spoon rack almost immediately. But, I have never seen one anywhere since I started longing for one. I don't collect spoons. I wanted it for my vintage handkerchiefs.
I want to plaint it white and distress it. Then I will go through my collection and carefully choose which hankies I want to display. Until then, I crammed them all in here very hastily just so I could see that I DID IT! It actually works perfectly! I think you could almost put two in each slot if you have a lot of them. One of my Facebook followers deemed me "Genius" for this idea (Thanks Barbara), but it wasn't my idea. I saw it on a blog long ago and it stuck in my head.
Now, if I could just find that darn metal laundry basket on my list! :)
