Sharing my weekly faves from the Nifty Thrift flickr group where people post pics of their nifty thrifty finds. The theme for this week's picks is lovely vintage kid's stuff:

One of the perks of having a baby girl is that I have a reason to thrift adorable vintage toys! I would be stoked on any of the above items, all great finds. The doll cradle is so charming with its bare wood and adorable sailing motifs. I love the faded colors and distressed look of the blocks. The Raggedy Anne is purely nostalgic on my part as I had one when I was a toddler. We were inseparable. I called her Gringa. Unfortunately, Gringa suffered a tragic fate. I dropped her in the toilet when I was two, poor thing.

1973: Me, Mom, and Gringa. How cute was my mom?! I want that skirt!
