The start of the whole lotta pink this week was this glorious miniature crochet bouncinette found in a tub at the oppie for $1. Luckily within Miss Liongirls veritable family daycare of baby dolls, we had a baby just the right size and desperate for a bounce. While she was tending to the posse of dolls, who largely seem to be called "Baby", I snuck in to Roboboys room to take some snaps of the curbside find in all it's shiny white glory.
Remember this glorious piece of unwanted furniture snaffled by me from the curbside on the school run a few months ago?
Flipped around the other way and vigorously sanded. Nasty damp vinyl padded door coverings removed.
Well, take a look at it now, 4 coats of white paint and about 4 months later.
Roboboy loves it. So good for lego display which is frankly essential around these parts. He intermittently pesters me about getting a fish tank for up top which I think would be fantastic if I could trust him to actually keep them alive. We still need a knob for the door. I haven't yet found any funky boy suitable fabric to recover those padded doors but they have come up quite well just with the white paint.
And the other treasure this week was the remaining factor responsible for the "whole lotta pink". This fine specimen of a tutu was $3 from the oppie and had never been worn. Liongirl wishes to make known that Spring fashion still includes beanies but gumboots are so last season and gold flats are in.
Here she is attempting to indoctrinate one year old friends in her playgroup into the world of pink fashion.
Is everyone feeling all the Spring in the air?
