**Update** 2012 Birthday Month Giveaway!

Congratulations to Alyssa!
Happy Birthday to you and me, too! It always feel like I am celebrating the whole month anyway, with my sisters birthday and mine and now my niece's. Yay for March babies!
Thank you for the wonderful giveaway! I love reading your blog and check it daily, so thanks for your dedication!

I have been into sequins and all things shiny recently. I am kinda obsessed with anything crafty.
Send me your info via email and we will get this thrifting started!



I seriously love my Birthday month. Who doesn't? Because we ALL get to celebrate for the month of March. And I share my celebration with you. Tis better to give than receive and all that jazz.

Here is what we are going to do. The first part of this Birthday Month Giveaway is this:

Leave a comment telling me what you are grooving these days.

And if you are the lucky winner drawn on March 16th, I will thrift for you! Whatever your heart desires to be thrifted.  I thrift it and ship it, as my gift to you for being such a good reader of the blog this past year. And as you know or may be figuring out at this point...I am a very gifted thrifter.

And of course, if you Tweet it or Facebook it or Pin it...you will get extra love from me. Because I do that.

**I have been getting emails asking if I would thrift for OTHER people for the winner...and yes, yes I would. If you win and you want me to thrift for your Mama or kids or BFF, I can do that!

Let Birthday Month BEGIN!

Girl! How exciting! Plus YOU get to go shopping! That's a win-win situation. My oldest twins' b-day is St. Pat's day, so I'm always looking for something green and shamrocky. And old. Like you didn't know that. :O) Totally pinning your awesome b-day giveaway!

That would be vintage fabric - practically anything pre-1970, but I do prefer 100% cotton. I am also very fond of vintage trims and appliques and buttons and...you get the idea.

Hi Sonja,
I like just about anything vintage. Right now I seem to be picking up white "ironstone", polka dot anything. I do believe I addicted to vintage and antique linens especially quilts. Books, books and books especially children's books. Shall I continue? You get the idea. I like reading your blog because you always find fabulous goodies. Keep up the good work.

Happy Birthday to you!! I think celebrating all month long is a fabulous idea! We all deserve more than just one day to mark those milestones!

I've really been drooling over old plates, vintage fabrics, and small picture frames.

Right now I'm looking for a large vintage baby doll head( or the whole baby) condition is no issue ( the worse the better, actually) or old rosaries.
