It's my party

Yesterday Jack sat down beside me with his Thomas brochure clutched tightly in his fists and asked me which train did I want for my birthday. They don't have Jon Bon Jovi on the Island of Sodor, do they? LOL
On another note, I am tableclothed out. Sick of looking at them, sick of taking pictures of them, blah blah. (Well, really I am so sick of the rain. It is making me crabby. We are 9 inches above normal for May. Just wrong. I need some sunshine.)

So maybe you want something else I have spilling out of every crevice? Today's winner will receive as many vintage ornaments as I can fit in whatever box I can find. There are 36 in that bowl above, so I imagine it will be roughly 3 dozen or so.

Because they are fragile and the box will be largish, U.S. entrants only please.

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me you want them.

Good luck!

And Hapde number firty-free to me. :-) (Even though Jack thinks I am five.)

  6. Happy Birthday, Sarah!

    Too bad about Jon, but he doesn't really go with your decor. :)

    Aren't you proud of me for not entering the tablecloth draw? I so would have wanted to cut them up. :) (now the ornaments...they'd be safe.)

    Have an awesome day.

  17. Well happy 5th birthday to you! And when does Bon Jovi have time to get that body? Peyton Manning told me only professional athletes or men under 23 are allowed to have that body. and I know Bon Jovi owns an arena football team but I don't think that counts.

    Count me in for the ornaments, they'll be gorgeous on my madri gras tree!

  18. Ooh, I love it! Happy birthday, by the way! I've been so busy hoping and wishing for the daisy tablecloth, I have forgotten what all of this happiness is in honor of. Hope you are enjoying your birth week!

  19. O they are darling. When I was a little girl (I'm 50 so thats looong ago) all my friends had these new fake trees and new ornaments and twinkle lights. We were less rich or more thrifty and we only had the old fashioned balls and a fresh tree(of all things!! not to apreciate) as well as the old big bulb christmas lights that burned the heck out of your fingers when touched. Anyway I thought they were old fashioned and awful. When my parents moved across the country (I was 16) they left the ENTIRE BOX of old ornaments at the old house. I had already left in the car and didn't know it until Christmas after we moved. They didn't have room in the van for it and felt that they could leave that box. All of a sudden I wanted those old ornaments! And now every year when I decorate my tree I remember the old ornaments and mourn slightly for them. Too late did I appreciate vintage. But it did teach me a lesson. Todays yukky maybe next years "vintage". :-)

    Happy Birthday.

    That's so funny about the brochure. I think that's my sons favorite piece of literature. Always studying it. :-)

    Hope the sun shines soon...

  36. Happy Happy Birthday to You! (btw - did you know you have the same birthday and are the same age as Beki at artsycraftybabe?)

    Ok - count me for two for this one! Wow! I can never find these and really want some. I'm hoping to inherit the few my grandmother has left, but it's morbid to talk of such things, so in the meantime, winning these would be fabulous!

  37. Well Happy Birthday. Good Luck to the US girls for your gorgeous glass ornaments.
