Vintage for Kids



I'm almost done with the vintage that I got from Travis' grandmother Betty. Here are some more great pictures of her that I got from Travis' brother. I really love that first one. I'm not sure which of her sons that is. Look at her great dresses!
She saved two vintage puzzles for me. It kills me that this United States isn't quite complete! It is so cute. Look at the shape of Florida! Haha. The colors are great. I'm going to frame it.

I love the little cotton symbols.
She also gave me this Lone Ranger one. I really wish it was closer to being complete! It would look so great in my western room (still in the planning stages).
Travis found a big box of read and hear records. Including 101 Dalmations, my childhood obessession.
I think the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea cover the best.
I also got this diaper stacker. I LOVE the fabric on it. I can't decide if the bear with the fancy hat or the pink bunny is my favorite.


Allright, I've got two more treasures to share with you from Grandma Betty. They are two of my best finds ever!

  4. That first puzzle is ridiculously cute. p.s. if you ever fine vintage maps that you can part with, please send one my way. I'll pay ya and everything, it's just hard to find as much vintage up north for some reason.
