SO glad to be back! The "mother board" went on my 4 year old laptop and
would have been costly to replace. For a reasonable fee they saved my
photos. Hooray for that! So here I am
struggling learning a new
dreadful Windows 8.1.
I don't know about you, but I don't enjoy the "new computer" experience.
I feel like I lost my old familiar friend, but I guess this old dog will
have to learn some new computer tricks.
Hit an estate sale today and came home with some goodies.
(I'll ask you in advance to excuse my photos, I have a whole new photo program
to learn also. A
arrrgh Joy! I haven't even found the "resize" icon yet, sigh.)
I was doing the happy dance at this estate sale....found lots of linens!
Wonderful 1950's Shawnee console set & Imperial dolphin candlesticks.
Paris street scene tablecloth, that came with 8 matching napkins.
$2.00 ~ yes please!
Vintage veggie towel on the left by designer Lois Long.
Peppers towel is new.
Love full aprons! The vintage one was loved & well used. The Hummingbird
design is a Kay Dee and never used, looks brand new.
A good look at the cool console set. Mr. Retro found it and
did the negotiating....$5. I think I always need to bring him along!
This "Lipstick" cutie is a little large for a hankie, a little small for a towel.
Must have been to wipe lipstick off on, think?
Some colorful vintage hankies and set of vintage napkins.
Don't know about you but I just love dish towels. Got a few very
nice quality and this vintage Mexican theme Startex. :)
No Christmas decorations, but set of cute tea towels and...
this wonderful tablecloth. It came with set of 8 napkins.
From the packaging, I'm guessing 70's-80's. Yup, still in the gift box with
the tissue paper wrapped around it.
I love estates sales, but they do make me feel somewhat melancholy. In this case,
the woman had to move to assisted living. Note to self: Start using and enjoying ALL
my treasures now. Hope you do too!
So glad to be back! GREAT to see you again!
I got some sweet "mail call" and joined in a couple swaps, so
I'll be yakking about them soon.
