Decorating With Vintage Items

Remember in a previous post how I mentioned that we pass furniture around in our family? Well, we're doing it again! This old buggy belonged to our Mom, who thinks it belonged to our Grandma. Several years ago she had it restored and had it sitting in her home for a few years, then she gave it to me to use. I used it for a few years then I passed it on to my sister to use, recently my sister sister gave it back to me! As I'm writing this, it all sounds so confusing and funny to me!
I put the buggy in my craft room, where the children also have their toys. The handmade bear is my sister's bear, a gift from our Dad, so I left it in the buggy.
I bought a small wooden door and painted it, glued a tiny door handle to it, then applied a coat of sparkly glaze, and I placed the "fairy door" by the buggy. The children love it!
Remember, use what you have...or what your family is passing around!
Love and peace,
