Birthday Bliss...
It was my birthday this past weekend and my dear, sweet mama sent me a delightful package full of vintage goodness!!!
The box was brimming with treasures! Inside I found these gorgeous vintage earrings.So pretty!! I will have to use these in some projects!Look at these gorgeous vintage linens!I adore the colors in this runner and hot-pad!
There was also a darling vintage baby book. Inside it is filled with sweet entries, a lock of baby's hair and even an elementary school report card. Mama also sent me my very own ruffled tights I wore as a baby!
A sweet vintage saucer with blossoming trees. Mama said she bought it because it reminds her of Anne of Green Gables. If you watched the movie, you know how gorgeous the scenery was on Prince Edward Island where they filmed it. I need to watch that movie again soon! It was my favorite book series and they did such an amazing job sticking to the book when they created the movie.She tucked in some fun craft supplies, too! Vintage crochet lace, seam binding, rick rack, buttons and Martha glitter.On my birthday I visited all my favorite local antique malls. I didn't find much, but had lots of fun looking. Treasure hunting is definitely one of my favorite pastimes. I love to find something wonderful, but I think at least half the fun is the hunt! I did find this cute "find" flashcard and a vintage ledger book at an antique mall. I also found the lovely blue transferware plate at the Goodwill for just $1! To top off the day I ate way too much of my favorite dessert, white cake with buttercream frosting! And my sweet husband and boys sang happy birthday to me in the sweetest way, gathering around me and hugging me. Does it get any better? I don't think so. I am so blessed with my sweet family!!!

Happy birthday!! Your mama "gets you" just like mine gets me. Isn't it wonderful? No awful blouse or a wallet that isn't your style but fabulous heartfelt vintage goodies. What fun! Have a wonderful weekend.
