This tootsie toy train is a dream. Mother goose leads the way and as she does her goose's neck turns.
Cinderella sits safely in her pumpkin coach. How on earth did this not get broken?
Pulling up the rear is the old woman and her shoe...tie included and intact.
I can only imagine how many pretend meals were cooked in this. Claire loved it. Who knows how much it was loved before her. My mother found this years ago and was quick to place it on my daughter as soon as she was big enough.
This was Claire at 15 months.
What happen to my baby...she's ten now but loves this just the same.
I did some painting on the sewing cabinet. Painted in slate blue and highlighted trims in creamy yellow. Insets are scrapbook paper from October Afternoon. I couldn't find any wall paper I liked.
This picture is not true to color but great for detail. I ended up waxing the piece with dark brown Briwax and distressed it heavily. I wanted it to look well loved. More of an artisan piece.
Looks just perfect in its place. All in all it was a nice twenty dollars spent. Now if I can just remember where I put my labeler I will be set...
