I couldn't decide on a title for this post. It was either "new challenges", "something to look forward to", "am I mad or just stupid".

Maybe I'll pick D - all of the above...
So the other day when I was at the op shop (opportunity shop/thrift store etc etc.) buying my yummy Cornishware jug, I spotted this dolls pram. Although I left it there I couldn't get it out of my head.

Yes it needs a bit of work but hey, if it comes out looking pretty good and my daughter falls in love with it on her first birthday then I'll be a happy Mum.
... if Gracie doesn't pinch it first.
She seemed quite taken with it.


  1. Gracie has impeccable taste.
    We have one of those, loved by daughters and their daughters and still going strong.

  2. I'm glad you got that...pretty rare to see a pram like that around♥x

  3. She'll love it and will put the cat in it and cart her around ;) My girls do that with my mums highland terrior.

  4. Ooohh! I had one just like it when I was little. By the time my sister was old enough to use it, it looked like this one. Dad overhauled the frame, mum made a new liner/cover. Our cat spent hours being pushed about it in it, with doll blanket and miniature teddy. Tamsyn will just love it.

  5. It is beautiful... dirt, rust and all, it's charm shines right through. Love the soft blue color and the touch of red at the handles... reminds me of when I was a little girl. Great find!

  6. oh Fer! Such a score! So lovely - she'll think it's ace!
