Just a few more peeks at my mother's extensive collection of vintage toys in the barn studio. She grew up in a nursery school and became a nursery school teacher, herself. Not a big surprise that she finds so much inspiration in children's playthings of yesterday.
Being a seasoned traveler, toys from other countries also fascinate my mother.
As you can imagine, my four year old is in absolute heaven in the studio. Every art supply at her disposal and intriguing toys every where she turns... each with a story to tell. The vintage dolls are her favorite.
This baby is always seated at the top of the steps to greet her. I love knowing that she is being introduced to dolls from a more innocent time... when little girls were not expected to grow up so fast.
One of the finest articles about the barn went live today on the Storque (Etsy). My mother and I are so honored to be in the SPOTLIGHT. The author, Christine really seems to get what this space is all about. If you've ever looked at one of my barn posts and longed for something in one of the photos... Christine has come up with an amazing line-up of Etsy finds to get that barn look. Please head over there, it's so much fun! Thank you so much, Christine!
