Thrifty Thursday and PicMonkey

Happy Thrifty Thursday! I've been looking forward to today. Head on over to Lady Cordelia to see everything else that people are sharing. It's such a fun little blip in my week!

Today my show-and-tell item is this adorable vintage cake carrier! It's doubly thrifty because it was also gifted to me :) Thanks momma!

It even locks into the base and the colors are so happy and cheerful; it couldn't be more perfect. I can only imagine the church picnics it attended, the homemade cakes tucked proudly inside.
All the little scratches make me love it more, it means it lived a life full of purpose. So I don't feel so guilty when I use it to decorate ;)
And now for the second part of this post. Do y'all know about PicMonkey? Have you been leaving me in the dark??? This is the most incredible free online picture editor I have ever seen! Seriously! I'm hooked and to make it even better it is brilliantly easy to use!


  1. What a wonderful gift your mom found for you! I love all the colors and can just see you taking it to a church picnic!
    I have never heard of picmonkey so will have to pay the site a visit.
    Thanks ko. I hope your babies are feeling better and you have a great day!

  2. I LOVE your cake taker! Beautiful! I saw one like that only new at World Market a few months back and my DH didn't get why I HAD TO HAVE IT NOW!! Needless to say, it got left with the store. Sigh... You are a very lucky woman indeed!

  3. That is a cute carrier!
    I love the pic of your boys, so cute. Mine don't like to appear on the blog much anymore, lol.

  4. Wow! Lucky, lucky! That is super cute. I want one, really bad. I am going to do a vintage cake carrier dance and hope to attract one :)
    Never heard of picmonkey. I will most definitely check it out!

  5. I have never seen anything like that, it is functional and pretty!! You have a perfect mom.

  6. Insanely cute (the boys and the cake carrier)

  7. That was an awesome find! LOVE it. AND, the picture of your boys with the "more photo shoots" comment made me laugh pretty hard. Our poor kids :)

    Thanks for your kind comments on my blog too. You always make me feel so great.
