For the boys :-)

I absolutely love using sweet vintage items as kiddy decor and these 3 cute recent finds have me giddy with happiness!



I've mentioned before I love the use of vintage board games as decor so this 3-in-1 board was a great find at $2!





I have a little collection of vintage cases growing but this adorable school-sized one has got to be my new favourite, the colour, the stickers... it's just perfect!! I got it for $8 at a market.

It's like they were always meant to be together, look at those greens...

This gorgeous little puzzle was $2 at a market, each side of the cube has a different image to make up 6 different puzzles in total - lots of fun!

Awesome find! The other day I found a Beetlejuice puzzle from the cartoon series for fifty cents.

I like also the puzzle: I used to play a lot with mine when I was little...

The 3 in one board game is a real winner. Would look great up on the wall ion a frame as a roatting mini gallery.

I have a little something for your boys to use next Xmas, give me a buzz if your interested.

ACKKKKKKK, the pain. Green child sized case with metal corners! Next to LRRHood puzzle blocks, in front of vintage game board. And the prices were RIGHT. The pain has not subsided.

Hi, I really enjoyed this post when I read it a few weeks back. I'm remembering now that I'm writing a post about vintage game pieces so I'm including a link to this post. I would so love to see a photo of these items in your kids' rooms.
