Baby Stuff

I have a soft spot in my heart for vintage baby items from the 1950's & 1960's. Not sure why except that I find the stuff to be so charming. Again I credit my friend Martha S. for inspiring me to collect these items. I recall an article many moons ago in one of her mags about vintage baby hangers and Myercord decals for the nursery and on and on and the rest is history. I believe at the time I might have been pregnant with my first baby and looking for nursery inspiration -  so I didn't really need much encouragement.

I bought these at that time to decorate the nursery with. I think they came from ebay. There were 3 of them when I first bought them. Since then one broke and now I only have 2. Since my "baby" is now 13 and isn't into these AT ALL - they have been hanging out on my dresser looking cute. Recently I decided to part with them and they are for sale in my etsy shop. It is hard to say goodbye to some of this stuff because it reminds me of when I was a new mom. I guess that is why I held on to them for so long. Oh well...time moves on.

This was also purchased for Gaby's nursery decor. I remember buying this at an antique store. It is nice for holding cotton balls. It too is for sale right now.
Just this past weekend I bought this beauty at a yard sale. I bought it specifically to resell it. The lady I bought it from said it was her husband's set when he was a baby 50+ years ago. It is in mint condition. I believe the pieces shown above were probably originally part of sets just like this one. I listed it on ebay. I am hoping someone who loves vintage style like I do will buy it for their baby's nursery. You won't find anything like this at Babies R Us.

I am also parting with this vintage baby book. It was never used so the pages are like new. It is for sale on etsy. The graphics are so cute. I love the baby on the cover and her rosy cheeks.

What can I say? I am just drawn to the vintage styles and things of the past. There is just something about older things that I love. I still have some other cute baby things that I haven't parted with yet. Maybe I will get around to showing them at some point.
