I tell ya, my friend Charlotte can spot a good find a mile away. She has especially good radar for little girl treasures. On this thrifty occasion, she brought over a box to Neve. There was much oohing and ahhhing, but as I was deep into the rack of wool sweaters on sale for .99 cents each, I didn't pay it much mind. Until we came home.
I don't know the Madeline stories, but we will be sourcing them out on our next library trip.
This is the nun. The costume is amazing in details.
And then the 2 girls!
Here they are dressed to go exploring.
With a hat and overcoat, doncha know!
And the little detail on the side of the hat.
The drawers in the bottom of the case have some treasures as well.
A passport. I didn't even think to open it to see what is inside.
A suit bag.
Look at the nun's bun...
And her undergarments.
Isn't it a girls dream kit? I can't wait to get a few books for her to re-enact the stories. It will be fun and is treasured already.
And I found 4 good wool sweaters for mittens. Yes, a good day at the thrift store.
Thanks for looking,
