Our Dress Up Bin



Last year on their birthday my daughter's received one of the most awesome gifts of all time!  A good friend of mine made them a dress up kit.  Not just any dress up kit that you find in the stores, a completely unique and fun one filled with vintage treasures!  Ever since she made this for us I have been encouraging her to sell them as I am sure others would love them as much as we do.

It is an old suitcase filled with thrift and antique store finds.  There are hats, gloves, scarves, costume jewelry and even heels!  From the moment my girls opened it they knew exactly what to do and started putting pieces on.

We have added to it throughout the year as well.  Throw in some of Grandma's jewelry, the tutu from Halloween and it just adds to the fun.

The best part is you just put all the pieces back in the suitcase and close it up when you are done.  I love that!!!

We play together with it...


and even Daddy can get in on the fun!

Isn't dress up fun???!!!!
