The Vintage Stroller

Vintage Stroller
We picked up this little beauty at a garage sale for 10 bucks.
It was the find of our lives! I am sooo in love with this vintage stroller.

We plan on using it as a bassinet for our little Bean.
Convenient too, because I can wheel it from room to room! Love.

I've given it a good scrub inside and out and fitted a new mattress into it. It's gorgeous and cozy. One day I'd like to fully restore it to its original beauty, but that's a job for another day.

3 weeks and 2 days until the due date! Last night I had a dream that we had the baby and sent out an announcement email announcing Baby vdW's arrival. In the dream I kept trying to access and read the e-mail so I could finally find out whether it was a boy or a girl! SO silly. Ah well, we will find out soon enough and I can't wait!

  1. Amazing find!! Cant wait to see Beansie in it. You will surely get the best use out of it being able to roll it from room to room!! Very convenient.

  4. Hellllo! That's a mighty beautiful stroller... Also - I notice you are living in New Zealand and I wanted to say 'hello' because I also live in New Zealand. I am so excited for you and your little one who is so nearly out into this world! Such an amazing time that goes seriously WAY too fast. Our little girl is 8 weeks old tomorrow. EIGHT WEEKS! It's gone by so quickly :(
