Posts Tagged ‘vintage thingies thursday’

Okay, my mom gave me a really cool cookbook for Vintage Thingies Thursdays.  I took approximately 82 pictures of it, but not a one of them wasn’t blurry.  What the heck?  I’m sure it’s the lighting.  I’ll try again next week.  However, in a later post tonight, I’ll publish a recipe that I made from it.

So on to Plan B … which does not involve trying to take a decent picture of tonight.  I’m not a Facebook addict or anything like some people I could mention (you know who you are), but I do have fun catching up with old friends on there.  One of my old Brownie friends posted this picture of us.

She was sweet enough to email it to me.  I’m the second Brownie from the right – the tall one.  haha.  This was circa 1985-ish.  I’m not positive because I’m really bad with time.  But I think that’s about right.

I love the Brownie uniforms and it makes me kind of sad that the girls don’t really wear them anymore.

For this week’s Vintage Thingies Thursday, I am bringing you none other than … my fridge! 


Okay, not the whole fridge because that would be insane, just a tortilla, a jar of jalapeno slices (which I had to pry off the shelf with a screw driver to stage the picture), a box of baking soda of questionable origins, and a Tupperware with what I can only hope is lettuce.  I may never know though because I’m scared to open it.  Just kidding.  The tortilla isn’t vintage, it’s only 9 years old.

For my real vintage find, I bring you my baby blanket.  My mother made it for me when I was a baby (hence the phrase “my baby blanket”).  She embroidered the alphabet, one letter per square, and a flower at each corner.  Then she sashed it (is that the correct term?) and tied it.  Some of the seams on my poor blanket could stand the attention of a talented seamstress, but I still love it.  I don’t have any distinct memories of using it for some reason, but I do remember the curtains in my room matched it – they were orange gingham.



Thank you for checking out my blanket this week.  For more good stuff, come check out my pantry (did you know Easy Cheese could expire?  It tastes tangy after the date on the can).  Just kidding.  If you want the really good stuff, go see the Apron Queen at http://anapronaday.blogspot.com.
