vintage musical plate

A lovely musical package arrived yesterday in the mail. I have always wanted to have a special birthday plate that could be used for everyone's birthday. So, what better to have than a vintage musical plate that sweetly plays "Happy Birthday". 
This is a Swiss Musical Happy Birthday Cake Plate. Isn't it so pretty!! Love the beautiful red roses, my favorite! 
With a neat on/off switch, and when you turn the plate to wind it, a sweet song plays. 
This has come just in time for September, which is my big "30th" birthday month! Time to celebrate!! It is going to be a great, and busy month for me. 
I finally finished my mini crocheted blanket, and now it is time to put a most lovely scalloped border, adorn it with some vintage doilies, and the words "vintage grey". I will be using it as part of my display for the boutique, which is coming at the end of September. I bought all the wood and chicken wire, and will start putting together my display over the weekend. I can't wait to show you! 

Wishing you all a wonderful Labor Day weekend! On Monday, I have a sweet surprise for you my friends, which I know you will all love!! Blessings!

I am linking up with the sweet Sandra of Lara's Vintage for Thrifty Thursday! Head over to check other vintage treasures!

  20. Happy birthday month to you! That cake plate is a treasure. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a musical cake plate. Your blanket is lovely. I need to get to work on a baby blanket for a co-worker whose first baby was born premature and is still in the hospital. Wishing you a wonderful holiday weekend. Tammy
