you know this post is going to be a snoozefest when the first picture is the inside of Angie's washing machine!
But look in there!
I got excited...it could be like two $10 bills, that's like TWENTY bucks total!!
The world is at your fingertip with 20
Happiness is just around the corner.
All wrongs suddenly become righted.
and YES MONEY DOES BUY HAPPINESS EVEN IF IT'S ONLY TWENTY DOLLARS!
What kind of crap is that?
that $9 difference is a big deal.
It's the difference between me buying that really cute pillow I've been eyeballing and not buying that really cute pillow I've been eyeballing.
Eleven bucks buys me a gallon of milk, two dozen eggs and a bag of cat litter.
and dashed dreams.
at least I have cute blue~and~white napkins.
And a cute
Thanksgiving Day kitty
who is a little annoyed I woke her up with the
Hey, I'm curious.
Do you ever get out the broom just so the kitty in the house can be temporarily entertained?
Well, I don't either.
I just got those pictures up there off internet.
Is it looking a little bare?
is caught red-handed.....
I love how Vinny in back there
is just sitting like,
"Dude. You are gonna be in so.
I love chunky, colorful glass.
Like this Blenko glass vase.
See that nice sheen on it?
That's called kitchen grease.
I'd like to get serious here for a minute if you will allow me.
Isn't this 70's vintage Bob's Big Boy cute??
He's a bank!
Maybe that's where I'll hide that windfall from the washing machine this morning.
And how about this vintage 1970's
Now, how cute is he???
The back of his head is a bank too.
This is in my kitchen.
Because baseball collectibles should naturally be in a kitchen, yes?
See how I keep that girly vase up there though? Hehehe
Spectators purchased these at pro baseball games and they held popcorn.
After one was done snarfing the popcorn, you punched out the bottom and it became a megaphone so you could yell at the players.
I think we're a little late on that Chicken Dinner at St. Patrick's Church from 1960.
See the top right hand corner of this board?
Therein is a turn-of-the-century picture of a lady and her bicycle.
Here's the picture,
out of Cedar Rapids.
Man, those ladies were heavily garmented back then,
For those of you new to this blog...garmented is a word...in the Pretend Word Dictionary. Look it up.
Next to the top secret communication board are two pictures of old houses.
The top house is a pencil drawing from the early 1900's,
the bottom is an old photograph maybe circa 1920's.
I love pictures of old houses
and old people
and old cars
and old Christmas stuff and...
well, you get the drift.
I know what I was going to show you!!
See this? Isn't it cool?
I bought it at an antique shop in Hermann, Mo.
It's a handmade boat dock on driftwood.
Look at the detail of the boat dock...
And the detail of the pelican...
see Vinny here?
WHO EATS THE HEAD OFF A PELICAN FOR PETE'S SAKE??!
Well, I glued the pelican head back on and it's safe for now.
here's an advertising thermometer in the shape of a captain's wheel.
Here's a vintage shell lamp in my kitchen I wanted to show you.
And look at these two adorable vintage birds.
This cool vintage
1. A field of ripened corn.
2. Where the Indians roamed.
3. Corn fed pork.
4. Ready for market.
5. The capital.
As we all know, Iowa is so much more than, uh, "Ready for market."
It's from Tim's family.
This recipe says
I like chunky, texture-y things like this memory ware vase that I've had for years....
And this shell vase thing...with wings apparently.
This art piece and throw are texture-y and chunky...
And this artwork is full of texture...I love this picture.
I paid $7 for it at a consignment shop.
And who doesn't love chunky beef stew as in
Beef Stew with Paprika and Beer?
Done or raw,
fills the craw.
Type of thing.
Should have tasted more interesting with all these ingredients though,
don't ya think?
Well, I better get back to work now.
The electricity has been going on and off all morning due to this heavy wet snow and ice storm.
And apparently my spatial meter is off because I reported to Tim this morning that there were no drifts in the driveway.
Okay, this was taken out my front door right now at 1:10pm.
Okay guys, thanks for humoring me with this ridiculously boring post!
Have a good Wednesday....stay safe if you're in a
Talk at ya soon!!
