Vintage Birthday Finds



I have this lovely Musical Birthday Plate from way back in the day! It is at least 50 years old, as that is how long it has been in our family. I don't actually know how far back it dates. But you wind it up and it plays happy birthday, and spins your birthday cake round and round. It is still perfectly in tune, and most enjoyable! In the first photo you will also see Happy Birthday Matches. Nothing special about the matches, but the packaging is so sweet, I had to have it, a total impulse buy that I did not need. Do you have anything that you haul out for birthdays? Any special traditions? Do tell!!
