New York ! New York !

I found this lovely wooden set of the New York Skyline yesterday in my favourite Charity Shop for £1 complete with pretty drawstring bag.  Too sweet to let the twins get hold of (they will just disappear amongst all the lego )  I thought they look nice popped on the shelf that runs around the top of the panelling in the dining room. 

New York is a place I have always wanted to visit (along with Paris) hopefully they might act as a daily reminder to work harder to achieve my dream.

    Yes, I've seen those before somewhere – definitely worth more than £1 anyway. They look really good displayed like thatPS. I thought I was following your blog from ages ago what with magpie monday, anyway, I am properly now x

    Thank you so much ladies for your lovely comments. I love wooden toys for children and especially simple, uncomplicated items. This was too nice to hand over to the twins though : ) xx Sounds like we need to get a Muji in Exeter !
