A friend of mine went antiquing last weekend and found this wonderful early doll cradle with the best ever blue paint! It’s got the best shape too. It’s not long and narrow like so many are, sale but more chunky in it’s shape. It has lots of square nails too, buy cialis big ones. It measures about 13 inches long and 10 inches wide and will be for sale in my store either today or tomorrow. The little dolls were made by doll artist Teresa Carr, who in my opinion, makes the best ever reproduction primitive style dolls I have ever seen. The one on the left will be for sale in my store. She’s darling and made with all early fabrics, rag stuffed just like the real early dolls. She also made the little boy doll that just sold in my store. I am also opening a “Book Store”, where I will be selling used books, but most are like new.


Many of them I am familiar with and love, and I thought this would be a way of sharing them with you. Especially with Summer on it’s way, it’s always fun reading and looking at books. One of my favorites is a book called The Nature Notes of an Edwardian Lady by Edith Holden. I have this book and have given it as a gift. It’s just the loveliest book, full of Edith’s beautiful drawings of things in nature and beautiful poems. The pages have antiqued look. It’s just so beautiful. So come on over to my store and take a look. I’ll have more new things for later today or tomorrow.



Happy day

    Hi, the dolls in the cradle are precious! I love the cradle, I have one similar, but in brown, I think it may have been once upon a time a red.
    I love the little tin buckets, thanks for asking about giving me a price, I do not collect them, I just found them so precious. If I had a spare bedroom/guest room I would love to do it up with old toys and quilts.
    Wishing you a wonderful evening!

    Hi Martha. Yes, isn’t that cradle wonderful. it’s the blue paint that I love so much, but the shape is wonderful too! Your idea of a guest bedroom with old toys and quilts sounds very inviting. i am sure your guests would love that.

    oh Carole,

    what a dear little cradle…

    your images are just wonderful…always.

    I look forward to your Book Store. One can never have too many books…that’s what I tell myself when I buy another.
    I love used ones especially. They were loved and read and warmed by others who found comfort in reading as alot of us do…
    the titles are so inviting…

    Love the little cradle, so sweet. I’ll have to keep my eye out for the Edith Holden’s “The Nature Notes of an Edwardian Lady”. I have her “The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady” and find all sorts of inspiration in it!
