Another Birthday came and went….

Img_4340 A little something for the 2 winners of my contest! Thank you for playing! Made me feel young again. I have to share the sweetest story of my D. We went to a couple of my favorite thrift stores on Saturday. She went into her toy ATM.. by the way love this little machine! You put in the money and you have to add and deduct from your balance like a real ATM. She is saving up for another American Girl Doll…and guess what I don’t have to pay for it!  Well anyways… back to my story. She took 3 dollars for the day. We get to this one I love and she starts heading for the counter and I start looking at these bins… I hear her tell the lady at the counter something about my Birthday.. She paid and waited for me. I woke up Sunday morning to this:Img_4356_2

A paper bag with a necklace. It was on my bedside table.. made me cry. She spent her 3 dollars on a necklace for me! I just love her so much!

I scored on the best stuff on Saturday and will share with you soon! Here is a box of some of the things I found:Img_4345 Some antique tinsel, and some vintage plastic wedding bells………..

I woke up with a sore throat on Sunday so did not hit the Flea Market, went to my favorite Japanese dollar store instead and wanted to share some of the most adorable little things!Img_4343_2 Little Red Riding Hood finger puppets, Little gnome garden picks and some adorable birdie cupcake liners!Img_4344 Img_4349

Well, I am busy yet again. My Sweet Mother in Law is coming to town for 6 days…… Here is a page of her and Darianne that I am in the middle of doing… for now!Img_4350

    So, so sweet of Dariann! I would have cried too. I love those kind of presents the best.
    Love the bird cupcake liners. Wish we had a Japanese dollar store here. When we were in San Francisco last year I went to one there and just fell in love. We spent a bundle there both time we were there!

    Your flea market finds are wonderful, but the story about your daughter’s precious gift is the thing I love best.

    Awww…what a darling girl to do that & at such a young age. You should be proud of her. Did you take her to see the new American Girl movie, Kit Kittridge? I took my little one and I loved it! Makes me want to make feed sack dresses. I have yet to go to the A.G. store/tea place, but heard it was very neat.
    Cute stuff from the Japanese store…where is it, I may have to pay it a visit since I live in the L.A. area. 🙂
