vintage baby

These pictures are from a while ago, but they're too cute to not share. My love for vintage kids clothes and toys has never been deeper. I've been thrifting/ collecting/ selling kids vintage on my instagram shop @RiversThings for over a year now. It's a fun little way to pay some bills and find some cool treasures. This toy is the 1970 something Fisher Price Goldilocks and the three bears play set. I bought the dolls at an estate sale in Pittsburgh a while ago. A few weeks later I thrifted the actually doll house at a Pittsburgh thrift store. A match made in vintage fisher price heaven haha. Riv's outfit and cap is vintage too. My sweet little love.

Future artist

This is about the best $20 I've ever spent at target. Big pad of paper, crayola paint and chalk, and a pack of paint brushes. I was pretty terrified to let this one get near paint but it went so well! His new thing is wiping his wet hands all over the windows and saying "I paint"! I figured maybe he's trying to tell me something :) We had a great afternoon outside painting for real! And as a bonus this is a great sensory activity! Brushing the different bristles on your hands, brushing away chalk with water; he even let me paint his hands and stamp them on a picture he made for Seth for Father's Day. Check out our master pieces below!
aftermath- not bad !

"I paint" ha


When you're done you just walk off like a champ

cute toddlers are cute








Dude. 
Cute toddlers are cute. I've been trying to up my iPhone photo skills. I feel like I get some pretty good pictures but I'm always up for easy advice. Our big thing is natural light, our house is full of it. So I've got that + a cute model going! The one app I find myself always using is AfterLight. It was .99 in the iTunes store and it's awesome! With lots of different filters and frames to chose from, it  definitely was a dollar well spent. Not sure who is still reading this since I've been so MIA on here, but if anyone has any great editing apps please let me know!

Lollipops and tattoos

I love this boy. I love dressing him in vintage. And he loves lollipops. Everything is wonderful.

That one day when he napped 3 hours

So my babe is an awful sleeper. He needs his momma in his crib with him. So wen he actually does sleep well and alone - it's cause for celebration! This particular day he napped for 3 (!!!!) hours!  Wow! We celebrated with a well deserved lollipop when he woke up. Yay for sleep!
