Last weekend I found an estate sale right around the corner from my house. Not only was it convenient, but I found a few things that I have been on the lookout for. These adorable double egg cups are identical to a set I had seen in a consignment shop at Easter, but passed on because of the price. Sometimes patience does pay off!
I have a soft spot for vintage birthday items and this 1960's musical cake plate was the first item I scooped up. The $8 price had me thinking that it no longer worked, but I knew I would enjoy it regardless. When I got it home and carefully flicked the little metal switch, it started playing "Happy Birthday". My husband had a good laugh as I burst into tears.
Clearly the previous owner was good at following instructions:
"We suggest using original carton for safely storing this fine Musical Cake Plate".
My etsy and ebay searches for a farmhouse scale have me now dreaming of vintage baby scales as well. I have no room for this, but all common sense left me when I saw this fabulous scale and the adorable graphic on the face.
