A Girly Gift For a Girly Girl

Vintage sheet music is fun to use as gift wrap for small, special packages!


A little girl we love had her 6th birthday this week.  Her mother had told me a week or two before that when asked where she wanted to go for her birthday, this sweet little girl replied, "Camas Antiques!"  How adorable is that?  When I heard that she was loving to dress and decorate with anything vintage and feminine, I thought of what fun I would have putting together a birthday gift for this little one!  I sure did have a lot of fun...right down to the pretty packaging, because you know she will be all about the presentation!  Not that I don't love buying gifts for my boys, but they don't exactly appreciate a prettily wrapped gift the way a little girl does!  Here are the sweet little packages, followed by a peek at a few of the treasures wrapped up inside...

I found this pretty, shiny pink gift wrap at the DollarTree of all places!

Dried roses and bits of lace trim  make for a pretty topper.


I found this sweet 1920's dress pattern clip at The Graphic Fairy Blog!


This sweet little pearl necklace with heart pendant was an estate sale find!


Another estate sale find....vintage clip-on earrings for dress-up fun!


Handmade flower headband.

Another handmade hair pretty clipped to a pair of delicate white vintage tea party gloves!
