Cute spring dress I just added to the shop. 

Remember the birthday scene from "Mommy Dearest"

This dress reminds me of the one Carol Ann wore for her party.  I think I watched that movie 100 times when I was in middle school.  I used to pretend I was Carol Ann, horribly abused by my rich, actress mother.  Sometimes I pretended I was Joan Crawford, I used to practice her autograph and try to trick my friends that it was really her's.  

Here it is with the princess slip underneath.  The slip is so sweet and gives a little poof to the dress.

Many, many more dresses are coming into the shop, I just found a nice bunch of summer wears for little ones.  Even some cute boy stuff, and I never find cute boy stuff!

Little embroidered giraffe vest, so cute!

I really wish I had a two year old that this sweater would fit.  Ok, what I really wish is that this was my size because I would wear this every day.

This dress is sassy, it's sweet with just a little bit of don't mess with me to it.  Like Pepper from Annie!

There are many more adorable items to choose from so hop on over there and check it out.  

Also, if you are looking for other cute vintage children's items, search using "VKC" as part of your search title.  You will find lots of other Vintage Kiddo Collective shops.  It's a great little community of sellers.

I have been slow going this week on getting things posted to the shop.  The weather has not been cooperating so I haven't ben able to take many photos.  I have piles of dresses waiting to be photoed, so check back soon!

I just added these five vintage nursery rhyme puzzles to the shop.  They are not in mint condition, but still cute enough for display.

Old Mother Hubbard, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Mary Mary Quite Contrary 

Closer look at Hey Diddle Diddle

Old King Cole
They were all made by the P & M Company.  
I haven't added them yet, but look for them soon!

I took a trip back to my hometown in Illinois for Easter and hit a bit of thrift store gold.  I found all sorts of goodies for the shop.  Like......

Some awesome paint by number paintings, one winter, one spring.  Two cute needlework flower pictures.  One is crewel work, the other is more like a canvas type work.  I also scored this German Pisces wall hanging.  

Here's a little closer look.  The stoneware cup and jar are so sweet.  I think I'm going to hold onto the wooden fruit, it's kind of a new obsession.  

Then there are these pillowcases.  I found a matching pair of the Joan Walsh Anglund cases which just make me happy to look at.  I've been collecting the mod flower pillowcases for years now and never get tired of them.  I have plans to make a quilt out of some, but it's hard to think about cutting them up.

I love just finding one of these suitcases, so I was even happier when I found two at the same place.  They are in excellent condition, I even carried one filed with goodies home on the train.  

These two and other items will be coming into the shop this week.  I've been slow at updating the shop due to this being spring break, next week it will be back to normal, so keep checking back!
