baby vintage

i can only hope baby girl likes collecting vintage dresses and odds and ends as much as i do...she has quite a collection growing! and i'm a little bit addicted...it has been such a treat getting to go thrifting once a week and hunting for all sorts of baby treasures. so far finding girl things are much easier to find then boys...

this week i got the sweetest package in the mail from my friend marissa! it was filled to the brim with little vintage dresses and books and a little girl bowl and plate. my oh my! 

so now sis has a closet full of beautiful clothes but no bed to sleep in...haha. things are coming together slowly but surely. if any of you have any real great tips for washing baby clothes, i'm all ears...it's been so long since i've been down that road!

happy wednesday, friends!
 tonight is date night...i wonder if i can convince matt that the salvation army and goodwill are romantic places to visit...

p.s. take a peek at marissa's etsy shop filled with all sorts of vintage finds...she's running a 15% off sale right now!

  1. She's going to be a well-dressed gal! As much as I loved skirts and dresses when I was tiny {and now as a teenager still!}, I loved dressing like my brother. Our age gap is similar to baby sis and Max, and I was always so happy when I got his old snuggly jumpers and trousers and hats.

  3. Oh goodness, how adorable is that cup? Oh my!
    Love the first dress. And that jacket is so sweet. I'd wear that! ^^
    She will be one great dressed little lady that's for sure. My best friend is having a baby in august and I can't wait to go shopping for the little one :-D

  8. Everything is lovely! I have pulled out some of my baby dresses out of my hope chest for my little lady. I can't wait to see her in them....I figure I am going to take advantage of her not having an opinion on what she wears!

  12. On an episode of American Pickers they said it's easier to find girl's vintage bikes instead of boys bikes because girls took care of theirs, I wonder if the same is true for clothes! She is going to be the sassiest baby on the block with all these cute clothes.

    i am smitten with the sweet vintage baby girl treasures and mostly with a girl for you!!!!! ode to joy! make your own laundry detergent! it's easy, cheap and free of chemicals.
    1 cup borax
    1 cup washing soda (both found in the laundry aisle)
    1 bar of soap (grated) dr bronners makes un unscented baby soap that i've used before
    (also not sure if it's baby friendly but i add essential oil to mine) works well! 2 T per load

    and then you can package it pretty and it somehow makes washing clothes more appealing when the detergent is in a pretty glass jar-use a tea cup for a scoop!

  20. I just found out I am expecting a boy, and I too have been obsessed with finding little baby boy vintage. It's just so much better than new clothes found in stores.

  21. good luck with the date. my big boy is a 'wait patiently at the door type!'
    as for bubba clothes, i love soap flakes. Has that sweet baby smell.
    i was well out of practice with the baby bit too. We have almost 8 years between our little guys. but i love it. Louie is such the 'big brother'.
    happiness...

  23. I bought vintage baby dresses off of etsy for vivian....& I'm keeping them so she can dress her baby dolls in them.
    They are so fun---
    I keep my eye out for size 2 & up as she is growing like a weed!
    {p.s. I had two boys than a girl & it's a blast shopping on the "pink" side!}

  26. I'm sure she will :) It's in her genes right? ;) Super cute stuff.

  27. What a cute collection! I agree- I've been thrifting a lot lately and I can find girls vintage SO MUCH easier! I don't get it. But oh well, I'm having another girl so it works! If you choose not to do the DIY baby soap route- Purex makes a baby detergent that smells SO GOOD and is much much cheaper than Dreft. :) Also- a great stain remover is 3 parts hydrogen peroxide with a dab of dish soap. Its AMAZING! My daughter rubbed marker all over a shirt and it got it right out, it also got out GRAPE JUICE out of our white IKEA chair! :)

  28. oh I forgot to put 1 part water with the hydrogen peroxide stain remover! oops :)

  29. Oh, my goodness! Vintage dress heaven! I'm sure she has an amazing collection already. And don't worry, if worse comes to worst, baby sis can sleep in a cozy drawer! ;)
