  10. Hi!
    I thought I would let you know about my new shelf collection. I’m so excited about it! It’s called the Little Train Collection and is inspired by, well, Trains. My designs are practical and yet decorative. I took vivid colors and shapes, as well as the practical goal of organizing kids’ stuff, and put them together in these shelves. The collection is fresh and unique, like a perfect raid on the train. It can be hang on the wall or it can be set on a desk, and I’ve made each piece by hand. The prices range from $130 to $145 each. I know your readers will find on them a good alternative to decorate and organize kids rooms, so I thought they might like to see all the remaining pieces , too. 🙂
    Thanks so much for your time! I hope you guys have a relaxed week. 🙂
