The other week was my Mom's birthday. I really enjoy picking out gifts for my mom. This year I got her a sentimental present..She showed me a little vintage doll that was for sale on a website. She said it was very similar to a doll that my Grandpa brought home for her and one of my Aunts when they were sick with the flu. It was a very special treat as they were a large family of 8 and gifts were reserved for birthdays and Christmas. I don't have a photo of the doll..maybe later.
I got a lot of the treasures from Amanda's awesome shop, Bake it Pretty, as well as on Etsy through Epoch Beads, Mousy Brown, and Caramelos. The beautiful blue vase (it was even difficult for me to give it away to my own Mom, haha) I got from a local antique store.
We had Oberweis for dessert. Do any of you Illinois people love Oberweis as well? I don't dig the politics but I can't deny my love of their ice cream. I've tried. You can see that I snuck some candy flowers from Bake it Pretty into my Mom's mint chocolate chip ice cream.
My Mom really brings out my girly side..though I wonder if I've really shown you all my not completely girly side? haha Believe me, I got it.
