Hope Floats

Hope Floats, but in this case maybe not always! I love anything that has the word “Hope” on it. A few years ago I traveled with a friend to Boston. We decided to do the Cape Cod thing and headed to a Bed and Breakfast in Chatham. What a beautiful area. We traveled there in March so […]

Girl’s Road Trip

Yesterday I took a day road trip with a good friend. We drove to see a dear friend who lives in a small country town nearly two hours away. The town has 4,000 people with many beautiful old homes from the 1800s sprinkled here and there. It has a relaxed lazy feel, although I must say that […]

Girls Lake Trip

Nothing makes life better than a girl’s trip to the lake. We had lot’s of fun and were lucky that the weather actually provided us with two wonderful sunny days.  This was great way to start the summer season by spending a few days just boating and swimming all day with a little shopping on the side! Of course, the best part is enjoying time […]

Vintage Plaid Tin Picnic Basket

Look at this precious tin vintage plaid picnic basket a dear friend gave me! Imagine what a lovely surprise it was to find this under my Christmas tree. It is going to fit in perfect with my other vintage farm tin boxes/baskets from the 50s. I just have a few, but this is bigger than my others […]

Vintage Cowgirl Movies

Lots of you may have never even seen an old Dale Evans/Roy Rogers movie! I grew up in a very small town where finding things to do were limited. The one thing we could always count on is going to the picture show or the drive in. Many times they showed old westerns and my […]

Vintage Tin Picnic Baskets

I have a passion for nearly everything from the 50s. I really love the antique vintage tin picnic baskets and vintage bread boxes. Here are two examples of the bread boxes. I just have a couple of these, but would love to have lots of them! Saw a darling picture in magazine where they had stacked […]

Farmers Market Truck

This is the coolest truck I have seen in years. Spotted it in Montana at a produce market. It just makes a statement! The owner of the truck delivers his produce and plants in this truck. What a treasure he has in being the owner of this vintage truck.

Unusual Bed & Breakfast

 Went with girlfriends for a holiday shopping weekend. We stayed at a really fun Bed & Breakfast that was composed of old cabins from the past. Many are quite rustic, but very cute. Nothing better than shopping with friends! I did not buy very much, but just seeing all the holiday decorations put me in […]

Gotta Get a Bargain!

I love a good bargain! Got this old 50s metal stool at a junk store for $2. It was rusty and one leg broken. A little work on leg & almond spray paint and it is good as new…nearly. Next summer it will make a cool plant stand on my porch.

Blast From the Past

You have not lived until you have plunked yourself on one of these old metal motel lawn chairs from the 1950s. Growing up they were at every travel motel sitting under the trees and if you were lucky, by the pool! I have had a love for these chairs forever. I finally found a few […]
