Birthday Gift

My sweet nephew is turning 4, I can't believe it.  Im already experiencing it myself, time sure does fly with little ones.  

I racked my brain for something fun to get him for his birthday that he didn't already have and that wasn't typical.  I found this gum ball machine at Goodwill for $2.99 and knew it would be perfect.  He loves this  gumball machine that I madeover for my entryway and always gets a special treat from him it when he visits.

and here's the one i found for him, it doesn't look too bad in the picture but in real life the paint job was pretty shabby.  So, I gave it a quick coat of creamy white spray paint (so it would blend in nicely with my sister's kitchen where it will most likely reside)


I took pictures of it as I took it apart so I could remember how it went back together...





I really wanted to fill it with lime green jelly beans or another solid color treat but couldn't find anything so I stuck with classic gum balls.


Happy Birthday sweet Tucker!  We love you so much!  

I'm making a cake for him as well, stay tuned for that...
