Vintage Party Decor for Cheap Girls Like Me

As you know by now, I love vintage party supplies, especially Hallmark centerpieces. I have them for every holiday: Halloween, Christmas, even Valentine's Day. I found this baby buggy at a recent estate sale. I wasn't sure if all the pieces were in the package, but was willing to take the chance.

My friend (and "adopted" little sister) Betsey's baby shower was today so I got to put the buggy together. Everything was there, even the tiny brads to hold the top on. It's a little sad how happy it made me.

And look how much it set me back...

A whole dime!

That is a whole lot of cuteness for 10 cents!!! I love that face on that baby! Love vintage centerpieces like this also. Great find!

Too cute! I'm thinking I need to hit some estate sales before I turn to dust.

I've never seen anything like that in the UK. It's really lovely - and would certainly make a wonderful centrepiece.

One of my favorite Christmas decorations is an old Hallmark cardboard Santa sleigh cut out with the reindeer in front!

Oh by the way thank you for the package - the yarn and the little kids' playing cards. Love them both as well as the little vintage thank you card. Am blogging about it now. THANK YOU!
