Anyhoo, I bought a few things, but this is my most prized possession of the day:
Isn't she cute? A real vintage gumball machine...well, it could be if you ignored the "Made in Taiwan" imprint on the back! So maybe it is not actually vintage, but it is good, sturdy cast iron. My daughter tells me that Target sells a tiny, tabletop gumball machine for $16. Ding, ding, ding...we have a winner, cuz' I only paid $18 for mine...and since they didn't take the money out of it, it was actually only about $17!

I would love to have it bright red...what do you think, should I paint it or leave it as is?
I am finishing up a couple of Mother's Day gift boxes today...I will post pics when they are complete! Till then, have a great weekend and Happy Baking!
There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!
