It's a Small World...

A recent trip to Disney World brought back memories of my childhood and lazy summer days playing barbies, house with my baby dolls, climbing trees, banana popsicles and watermelon! Our six year old, Sofia celebrated her birthday at the Magic Kingdom  and enjoyed every second excluding "melt-downs" as to why she has to wait in line when it's her special day (birthday)... 

Walking down main street and watching Cinderella's castle rise above you... Wow! We ARE on Vacation (even if we do live 30 minutes away and its just for the day)...

Visiting the magic kingdom inspired me to create a playroom in our formal living room for the girls. Now they can color, draw, play house, barbies, school, read, create. I'm working on some designs to incorporate some of the wonderful set designs from the ride into their rooms and play room.  I hope these pictures bring back special memories of your summers, family vacations, and play-time. Enjoy your summer.


p.s. It's a Small World is my favorite ride of all times and Sofia's too.

vintage shoe stencil boxes... if you love shoes, you will love these!













Vintage wood shoe boxes used to store stencils from a shoe factory on the East Coast. These boxes are made of solid wood with red or black lettering stenciled on the front to indicate the shoe width and shoe style. Constructed of a thick solid wood, boxes have wood divider inserts (some composite board) as well as the bottom of the boxes. Sizes are listed below, height and depth may vary a few inches (1-2). Wonderful to organize your office supplies, kitchen cook books, craft supplies, etc. Shop on-line at www.vintageinc.biz or stop by the shop...
