Peach Picks: Playing House



Vintage Wooden Blocks PLAY from wlove


An item on the Front Page of Etsy caught my eye the other day. It got me reminiscing on my childhood. When was it that we stopped playing pretend? When was it that our imaginations were replaced with reality? When is the last time you played house?? And no, I don't mean all of the things you do around your home now, but the fun times we had engrossed in our fantasy grownup lives!

So here's a small collection that I hope stirs up some fond memories for you as well!



Sleek Serving Set from UncommonEye



make aproNs nOt war... from carolinableu



Crochet Pork Chop Sandwiches Pattern PDF from NeedleNoodles



Yellow Trimline Phone from 2pear



Do The Dishes - tea towel from showpony



Vintage miniature doll cabinet from hownowdesign



Vintage Mini TRAVEL IRON from MagiaMia



Set of 10 Vintage Wooden Clothes Pins from VintagefromCrystal


Oh! Two things:

1. My grandmother actually had that exact phone when I was growing up :)
2. Can you guess which item inspired this weeks Picks??

Have a wonderful Thursday!

I've always wanted an antique/vintage store (a real one so I can actually interact with the people) so people will come in and find memories..
