Here is my shelf where I do most of my holiday vintage Dime Store displaying. I had quite a bit of things sprinkled about the house and I started looking for more things this summer. The theme was vintage - birthday, cake, candles and numbers.
I spotted this old Happy Birthday book at the SCT not long ago - it is so sweet. I had the old noisemakers in my Happy New Year box. And, bonus, they were PINK! I bought the blue boy candle holders on ebay and the vintage package of Plastic letters and numbers on Etsy.
I found the old Musical Birthday cake turntable not long ago. The clown cupcake picks and the vintage napkin were a sweet gift from Carol last year, the Magic Number candles came from Heidi. The vintage candle boxes were gifted to me by Laurie when I commented on her lovely collection. She was sweet enough to send me her doubles....which led me to buy a couple more lots on ebay. Whoops!
My sweet toasting glasses in the center (which we totally did not use on my cake today), rolls of vintage crepe paper, a jar of old candles, a slice of felt cake that I made, vintage birthday cards and cake cookbooks round out this shelf. I made the banner to put above the window, but it was too small up there. Now it looks too big on the shelf. Oh well, I like it anyway. *The Bean bought me the "39 Forever" ribbon a year or two (or three...) ago.
Most of these cupcake picks and candle holders arrived in the mail one day from this sweet friend. She spotted them at an Estate Sale and crawled around on the floor and found every last one of them! Just for ME!
She has the best stuff at the best prices! Go look!
But, come back!
Thank you for all the Happy Birthday wishes today. You guys ROCK!
