Thrift store finds!


one of my best friend's daughter (who i also consider my niece) is having her 6th birthday soon. her theme is mad hatter's tea party.

lilly bought some plastic grass as a table runner like so:


we're going to line the table runner with different mis-matched teapots, heart playing cards, and flowers. each plate will have a little teacup with a cupcake inside. its going to be cute and cheap :) more on that next month though :P

here are 5 teapots i got today for $8

  1. Awww...that is so adorable! I have boys so I miss out on this sort of fun. I did crack up though over the fairy dust. My younger boy would hate to go to bed afraid of spooky nightmares. So I started blowing fairy dust in his room....it worked like a charm:) Thanks for joining me. Enjy the weekend. Debbie
