Hot Thrifty Finds

Yesterday was my birthday-my younger son baked the chocolate cake, and my older one frosted it with light pink buttercream. The segment that's not frosted is for younger son-he doesn't like frosting so we have to work around him. I had a really nice day. I went out thrifting and got some great finds.
This was from a garage sale-I don't need it, and I don't have any place to put it, but
when I saw this sweet little decal and she said $2 I couldn't pass up this little doll crib. The side even goes up and down!
I found these small really old plates at GW-I just think they're pretty.

The little red tin is cute with red stripes and the table runner was a quarter!
More vintage linens-doilies from a garage sale and table runner from thrift store. I had a pretty good day.
It is still really hot here. It has been over 100 for I think 14 or 15 days. I've lost track. I'm definitely in the autumn weather mode-can't wait till that arrives. My Air Conditioner can't either!


  1. Happy Birthday Leslie :) Looks like you had a fun day and you found some great treasures!! I just love the plates. Very pretty :) Hope that you have a wonderful rest of the week! Hugs ~ Laura

  2. Leslie..next year lets try to spend our birthdays together!!
    The baby bed I have seen made into a childrens bench..with the decals showing..it was so cute!!

    The rest of your finds are quite the finds!!

    Happy, Happy Birthday!!

    Hugs Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

    LOVE everything you bought! I would have gotten every single thing, myself!

  4. Happy birthday! I thought my son was the only one who likes cake but not frosting. All great finds. I like the plates,very pretty!

  5. Hi Leslie!

    Happy happy belated birthday to you! I hope it was wonderful. I love that your sons made your birthday cake and what team work, that's so cute!

    Your crib is adorable, love the sweet little band playing. Your plates are precious and you find the best linens. You lucky!

    Thanks for your comment about my tart - I think you'll enjoy it and it's so easy to put together - tasty and easy, a winning combo!

    Happy Belated Birthday (we celebrate birthday week over here, so the fun's not over!) and Happy Rednesday,

  6. Happy Birthday! I'm so jealous that your boys baked you a cake. That is not something either of mine would ever even think about!
    Fun finds - I especially love the heart plate.
