A Pink Cake and Vintage Barbies
antiques barn, Little #9 was with us, and she spied a bag of vintage toy foods, dishes and other kitchen gadgets along with a small basket of Barbie dolls and handmade clothing (from the 1970's, I would guess). Oh, how she wanted those items, so we carefully tried to sneak them to the counter without her seeing, but I'm not so sure we were successful. She spoke often of the toys she saw at the antiques barn and how she was so excited that she was getting them for her birthday. She spent a lovely morning, having lunch out with Mama and a quick stop at a thrift store where she picked out a darling vintage dress for $1.00 (I think I may have had the same dress when I was her age) and came home to very excited siblings,"Happy Birhtday" being played on the piano by her brother, noise makers (Oh, why did I agree to those?) and a pink birthday cake. What fun it must be to be four years old!
