{about a boy-vintage find}

just to clarify
we did not discover the boy in an op shop,
but we did unearth a miniature robe for his room.

the whole fam went out op shopping yesterday
which is rare, as the Mr does not do op shops

but the boy's room needed to be
well boy-if-ied,

you see his room is the last in our house to get painted,
so it remains a light shade of granny pink.

he had no where for his clothes, and had to share 
his sisters high boy.
which is not huge problem, but could not go on for ever.

Anways, this robe is very masculine

inside there are little engraved labels on the drawers:
"trouser rail"
"under ware"

and we made the bunting this morning
the boy and I 
from on old Sydney map book

the boy is indeed pleased
and feeling,
very boy like this morning

more finds over at Sophie's
