HOT July Stuff

Whew, it has been such a hot summer!
I'll be happy again in the fall.  Just hate the heat 
of summer.  I think that's because I'm old now, lol.  

Sharing just a few things...
I spied this parking meter lamp at an Estate sale and just
couldn't walk away.  I grabbed hubby and he loved it too.  
Problem of the last lamp needed for living room solved!

City of Chicago plaque.  Did some research and the meter is a
Duncan Industries from the 1940's.  It actually works if you insert 
a nickel or dime.  Very cool!

I have too many sets and partial sets of dinnerware.  
I'm fighting with myself to let go of these Franciscan
"Trio" patterned mid century plates.  
Also very cool! 

So our friends save seeds from the veggies they grow and
gave us some from their "long beans".  We planted them,
but had no idea what we would actually end up with!

Now that is a long bean!  

I figured I might as well take advantage of the sun and heat and 
croft some tablecloths to get them ready for my shop.  The sun
is a wonderful brightener.  Just have to watch out for the neighbors
Beagles, who not only dirty them, but will even steal them, yikes!

How are you handling the hot weather?  Whew, suggestions 
appreciated.  I'll end by sharing some items for sale in
 my Etsy shop.  I've been working hard at restocking.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. LOVE the parking meter lamp! It is so hot here I'm staying inside as much as possible!

    1. Me too Linda. I feel more homebound than I do in winter. :)

  2. It's been really hot here in NM too. I just try to drink a lot of fluids and stay out of the sun in the peak of the day. Thank goodness for air conditioning. That's a cool lamp. Definitely one of a kind. Your vintage linens are always a treat to see. Have a wonderful weekend Pam.

  3. It's been hot here in UT too Pam. Yesterday it cooled a bit and we got just a few drops of rain. Not much, but we'll take it! Your lamp is so cool. Love that Lily of the Valley tablecloth!

  4. Cool find Pam! Love seeing those tablecloths on the grass. I've heard of that method but I think it would be hard to keep our squirrels off of them! lol I have quite a few textiles, but honestly I find them a pain to photograph, clean etc! Your beautiful pictures give me some encouragement! Bye the way, those beans are crazy!


Your comments make me smile! Thanks.
