Little Miss Shopkeep

Thursday, September 6, 2012

a wee girl's shopkeep set
linen fitted tablecloth with tim holtz's tape measure sewn on:::made by moi!
things to sell & merchandise to display for little hands + those simple receipt books!

white apron was her daddy's

petite play money from the party store

shopkeeper's essential::::a broom just her size

a dollar tree wastebasket:::

paper bags for her customers::pretty parcels make happy customers

tags to price with and red/white bakery twine:::
a joy to watch her in her play
sometimes the simplest, most inexpensive gifts are the most fun

Vivian's 2 year old present from us with love.
 She makes fine linen, and sells it; and delivers sashes unto the merchants.
Proverbs 31:24

Looks like you are bringing her up right!! Love it! I am hooked on kid's toys everytime! Looks like so much fun. So vintage and lovely.

I love the Bible verse you put with this post. Beautiful.

Happy 2 years old to Vivi!

This is quite possibly the most darling thing i've seen! How creative! And she is such a dolly. I could just eat her up, Kara!
