Vintage Thingies and Other Stuff
It's that time again! Time to show your thingies! If you would like to see more thingies, go to Coloradalady's blog, where Suzanne is our hostess. Meet my new favorite thingie. Isn't she a beauty? I just got her from Ebay, and I love her! It's so retro cool, isn't it? As soon as I got it out of the box, I played the radio for hours, and the clock keeps perfect time. Only one problem. It scares me. When I went to turn it off, and put it there on that table, the back was so hot! My husband tells me that this is normal, because it is a tube radio, and tubes get hot. I'm afraid to leave it plugged in and running, because it might start a fire. Does anyone have a tube radio? I love it so much, and I want more old radios without the clock. Can you feel another collection coming on?
I've been working on this sign for 2 weeks now, and I finally finished it! Ok. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking How pretentious. Not only has she NAMED her house, but she's made a sign too! Don't worry. I'm thinkin' the same thing!
It took forever to figure out the right color to paint it (you probably need to enlarge the pic), but sometimes the easiest way is right under our nose. Or in our blog header picture.
I found these thermoses and sandwich box under the seat in my van the other day. I had bought it on our trip to Wisconsin, and forgot all about them.
I hung it by the back door, because I want everyone to know that I am so ready for a picnic!
Finally, I want to thank Shauna, because I won this book! It came by UPS yesterday, and I'm so excited! My first blog giveaway win! I can't wait to read this book, as I have been trying to get it at the library, but it has a looonnggg waiting list for it. My good luck continued, because a couple days later, I won a book (thank you Elizabeth!) from another giveaway! I will share that as soon as it arrives. It's always a great day when you get a new book, isn't it?!
