About three weeks ago I found this beautiful wood ironing board at a local consignment shop. I have been admiring the ones in the pretty Waldorf catalogs, hoping to put one under the tree - but when I spotted this one with a price tag of ten bucks - it was mine. The girls were with me and they were very delighted to help carry this to our car. It needed to be sanded so Ella and her Dad got right to it, while I put Vivy down for a nap. This is exactly the kind of toy that brings such warmth and joy into our home.
We found the perfect spot for it! It has become extra counter space for the just baked felted cookies, it is often a changing table for the wee ones and sometimes it is just an ironing board. One of the girls will find an iron in her stocking! I suppose I should iron a bit more - so they'll both know what to do with it.
