A Sweet Little Cottage


We discovered this sweet-as-sugar shape sorter whilst perusing a local op-shop yesterday - oh and did my heart leap with happiness! Scrolling website after website recently, searching for the perfect wooden set, I couldn't have dreamed up the sweet features of this divine little cottage. All for the even more loveable price of just five dollars. Watching Sage explore her "new" toy in warmth of her great-grandparents backyard last night, my mind wandered to those who've loved and cherished this darling house over the years gone by. Isn't there something so simply endearing about a toy with history? From the hands of one to another, the magic of childhood continues...

  3. What a brilliant find! I always break into a quick trot whenever I spy wooden toys at the oppie. They're rare but when you find them....marvellous! Wishing you a beautiful week of smooshing baby cheeks, hot cups of tea and Nana naps. Steph : x

  4. I love the cottage :) Don't you love finding little treasures hidden away in Op shops! I love that they have a history and are still yet to be a part of more memories. I once found a vintage blue Ford tractor in an Op Shop and Sunny fell in love with it :) Yes we did walk out of the store with it. It's old but so durable as you can tell it's made from quality materials... Not the stuff Tonka trucks are made from these days...
