|Hello bloggy friends! You know how I love old decals- right?|
|Well, I found this doll cradle on my birthday treasure hunting trip!|
|I gasped when I saw it!|
|Decals on both sides!|
|It's currently holding fabric and my yo yo kit- right next to my computer table.|
|For some reason, I am not a doll person. If that surprises you, don't worry- I'm hard to figure out.|
|The bunnies with the balloons is my favorite decal. Here's close ups of the rest.|
Bobby spoiled me this trip- that's for sure!
Thanks for coming by and leaving me a comment!
Next post, I hope to share some design plans for my new "spa" room!

|Happy Birthday to me! |
This 50s dinette was sitting outside under a carport at the antique mall we went to. It was soooo dirty!
|A guy saw me looking at it and said I could have it and the 4 chairs for $75.00! The leaf was hidden underneath it. I didn't even know it was there until after we bought it!|
|When the table is wet, it more closely matches the leaf color. I'm researching how to shine it up for good!|
|And here's one of the chairs! This one was in the best shape! All the others are torn.|
|Here's a close up. This pattern is called cracked ice and it reminds me so much of my mom!|
|I had fun scrubbing it up and shining it!|
|For now it's sitting on the front porch but it will be joining the table in my craft room tomorrow!|
I found more fun things on my birthday shopping trip but I'll save them for another post!

|I'm 53 today! I'm the little girl in pink, looking at what I think was a catalog! |
I never liked crowds and still don't!
I've wanted to go there for a long time so I'm excited!
Wish my feet good luck! *I* like to shop but my feet don't!

|Look at this doll sized case I found at the thrifts! |
It was really dirty but cleaned up fine!

|In case you're tired of seeing my yo yos, you may now gaze upon fall fabric scraps!|
I gathered them together for a fall photo shoot to highlight the usefulness of thrifting old kitchen wares AND thifted wicker shelving.

|Celebrate with me! I have a portable fireplace! |
It sat at the thrift store for months waiting for me to have enough money to buy it.
I'm so glad no one else bought it first! Isn't it perfect?

|Can I interest you in fall? |
|The ones with buttons are ready for a wreath but some will be for scarecrows.|
|Red, green, yellow, orange, brown and gold with some blue for sky thrown in!|
It's already feeling like fall here today and I'm glad!
