Wednesday's ramblings

Summer is on my mind today, the sun was out, blue skys...you know the kind of day! I love my travel stuff when Summer is on the way. The USA of my childhood meant vacation time for many, "See the USA in your Chevrolet"...sang Dinah Shore! These postcards and plates remind me of those days. Even tho I only made it to Miami Beach as a child, and the Lake of the Ozarks of course, I still love looking at travel souveniers.

And, I found this egg plate in the same design as my coffee pot. I like it, but cannot think of the pattern's name.I stopped at the thrift store last night for a quick run through and found these strange lamp shades. They are some sort of waffle like plastic, and have the lacing around the edges, not bad for 1.99!




Well, bye for now. You kitchen winners should be getting your packages soon! Til then, keep cool!

Egg plates are so cool! I used vintage CITY Plates to decorate our river house. It was very cute. Then, we sold it! Plates and all!

They are cute! I had em all over the kitchen once!Tempora-it sounds mod!ZSM

Temporama is just so MODERN! I think every girl I know has collected it at some point. It seemed like there used to be a piece in every thrift 10-15 years ago. I've seen a lot of serving pieces, but never the egg plate. What a treasure!!

I kinda remember that pattern and seeing it, and I don't think I REALLY looked at it to see the little mod atomic pattern! I'm sure I've passed up a lot! ZSM
