Like little portraits from youth…

August 26, 2009

At the moment, I’m digging childhood treasures from days gone by; or, rather, their grown up equivalents. So instead of throwing a modern twist on a childhood tale, I thought I would share a few items I am currently coveting that transport me back to another time entirely (specifically: the late eighties/early nineties cusp).

1. My favorite part of childhood trips to the Science Center? Astronaut Ice Cream! 2. I want to support Urban Outfitters + The Impossible Project‘s initiative, by purchasing my very own, limited edition Polaroid camera kit (containing one pack of preserved 779 film and one 600 classic Polaroid camera). 3. The greatest part of growing up in rainy Pittsburgh? Purchasing fun umbrellas come back-to-school time, like‘s Rain Parade mini umbrellas. 4. The Official Tooth Fairy Kit from Office of the Tooth Fairy makes the entire tooth-loosing experience only that much more magical!

5. I adore the old-fashioned feel of Love & Victory‘s Custom Silhouette Charms, like little portraits from youth.

6. I’m keeping fingers crossed that one day Austrailia’s Harper’s Bazaar will send me a grown up paper doll gift box, like the one desiretoinspire received. What could be more cooler? 7. Urban Oufitters’ Bike Shop is supremely cool, and I’m smitten with the banana boat bicycle handles. 8. Remember when Lip Smackers were all the rage? Sephora‘s Schweppes Gold Medal Set could keep a smile on my face for days on end. 9. On the Christmas list: a custom Muppet from the Muppet Whatnot Workshop at FAO Schwarz in New York City. What were your most beloved childhood treasures? It’s quite nice to take the time to remember some of these sweet treats. As always, you’re welcome to swing by Her name was Lola and share! I always love new playmates! Cheers.

    I love the idea behind her childhood story. Using items that feel like childhood, but are from now is such an awesome idea! I love it!
    I want a polaroid camera as well…

    What great choices. One of my closest friends still swears by the Lip Smackers of our youth. Perhaps it’s time I help upgrade her!
