I love vintage baby things - one reason being, they can't go out of style, because so often they are passed from one generation to the next. So much history! That isn't the case of this cutie, because I found it at a thrift store, but perhaps in the future it can have such a story.
I love this in particular because it looks so very homemade, but with whimsical touches everywhere: the fishes, the port holes with the elephant and lion? heads hanging out, which animal heads are attached by painted rope, so they're springy and can move about. It would be such a darling addition to a nursery. Alas, no babies are in my immediate future, so I hope it finds a loving home from my shop! :)
I just had to share because I can't get over how cute it is.
