A NEW FAVOURITE THING

I just couldn't wait to show you one of my "new" favourite things! I popped into my favourite local thrift store this week and there was this buggy waiting just for me. I wavered for all of two minutes as the price tag was a little high for my junking mindset, then I snapped her up!! I knew I would regret it forever if I didn't bring this beauty home. I have been looking for her forever!

She has been well loved...

and a tad neglected...


I envisage my buggy spilling over with flowers in the summer, but I couldn't do that to her just yet. A shabby quilt and cosy knitted blanket will do just fine.


For now I am happy just to admire her and push her back and forth on her springy wheels, imagining what stories she could tell from her past.

Anyone else have a favourite buggy?

happy days,

Tracey

Welcome Tracey to the wonderful world of blogging. I've found you through your new friend Janis. I am one of her Minnesotan friends through JMS, and am absolutely dying to meet her... I am so excited to hear she's coming to Minnesota and that we get to hang out and finally meet up.
You've found a fabulous buggy here, and you'll have fun enjoying its simple beauty.
Have a blessed day-
Gretchen
