They say it's your Birthday, it's my Birthday too yeah!

March is a month for birthdays around here. My sister and I both have a March birthday. Except she is 10 years younger than me. And cuter. And nicer.  I hate her. Kidding! She is all of those things but I love her dearly. March is also my husbands birthday (it's actually the same day as mine but he's three years older) but for the purposes of this blog post we don't care about him :) Back  to me and my sis. We decided to spend the day doing what we do best...Shopping, of course! We went to this quaint little town with brick sidewalks, cute shops, a train. You know, all Norman Rockwellish. So fun and of course we found some treasures! Here's mine
Cute dress clothespin bag to add to my collection. I hang these over my washer and dryer to hide some of the ugliness of my basement. You think it's working?
Probably not but they make me smile. 

Also got this fabric covered letter C, vintage hanky box and my eagle eyed sis spotted that Easter Gurley candle to add to my collection!
Isn't it cute?
The bread box was found at the thrift store a few weeks back. Perfect Jadeite green. The red letters were also found at the thrift. There were actually 5 letters that spelled GREAT. I'm not GREAT but I do love to EAT so I ditched the G and the R. 
I thought this hanky box was sweet but look how they abbreviated Hankercheif. Hdkf's ?? They would have been terrible at texting back in the day. 
My sister got some cute stuff too. But she can get her own blog! (Seriously Mindi, get a blog!)  Have a great (eat!) week!

  1. I love the way you've displayed your clothespin bags! Very, very cute!

    I had to study that Hdkifs box a bit. Too funny!

  2. I collect vintage clothespin bags but don't have any of the sweet dresses yet. Your collection is so cute!!

    Happy Birthday :-)


  3. Your basement with the clothespin bags could be a clone of my basement except I have a vintage yellow curtain hanging behind mine to hide a crawlspace. Happy belated birthday!

  4. That candle is SO cute. Is a "Gurley" candle a specific brand/name? Are they all cute like that? :}
