Hey there hi there ho there!

I've been preoccupied with my Granddaughters, up from Florida and their Dad, my son... Did find time to get some junkin' done, moved some furniture around, cleaned, moved another couch and chair in, (and it's awesome)!
Need to take more pictures of it - you can't see it in these.... More tomorrow, just checkin' in!

Hello out there! How are you? I'm "in the Pink"!

Peek a boo, I see you!
All my blog friends are gonna think I forgot them. I found out a few packages I sent out for the winners of the contest were sent back. I got a notice in my mailbox on Saturday, but can't tell which ones they are until I go up and look today. Rest assured, I will resend.
I love trashcans that are pink, match my hamper, and have funny little doodad ornaments like starbursts on them!I used to have a silver chrome reading light til I found this pink one!
Of course, here's vanity stuff in pink plastic!
Living room chair...you guessed it PINK!Hamper etc...PINK!flamingo flock, pink.

As you can see, I really AM in the pink...ok, mostle flamingos, but also other items! I don't know about you all , but pink is my favorite vintage color. I only wish I could have a pink bathroom and kitchen like my Aunt Ida. I do have the pink and grey formica table, but will have to wait for the perfect spot.
 I challege all bloggers to post their color scheme, and what items (with pictures) and colors are they most attracted to! Later, Zootsuitmama

What's new with Zoot?

The sun was going down on another day. The garden's been watered, and time to wind down.
Hmmmm...this looks like a comfy spot. I just couldnt believe someone would put this vintage aluminum lounge chair out for the trash!
But wait...Mr. Ziggy has managed to get free! There goes that relaxation idea!

 He goes straight for the fountain!This will be my bottle tree. When I'm done, the bottles on the tomato stakes will clang together in the wind.

Here's one of my tomatos!

This is the strangest and cutest plant I've ever seen, called the Bat Plant. The flower looks just like a little bat face!

Well more tomorrow, time to rest, -like Ziggy-PS, He did come in. I bribed him with a car ride!

More stuff!

This was my ad for my shop. I ran acrossed it looking for pictures. It makes me kinda sad, but it was really just toooo much. These fireking mugs are turquiose blending into white. I'd never seen them before!
These two boxes are plastic. The weird thing is I found out Russell Stovers used to come in them, cuz the sticker is still on em.

This lamp was sitting at Salvation Army for a week before I broke down and bought it. Cheapo, too.

This airline ad is a reproduction, but I like to put it up in the Summer in the bathroom.
Enough for one night...as you can see, I need some practice with the camera.

Hello there all! I finally got a camera and can post again! I posted about 50's atomic winning my give a way a few days ago, and wanted to show what she won!
It's a vintage tablecloth, the map kind, of some European crests and maps of (I think)Germany. It still has the stickers on it, has NEVER been used or washed, and the colors are Fab! Hope you like it, cuz I sent it today!!!!! 
I picked some cherry tomatos and green beans this morning. Some were still too small to pick, but probably in a couple of days!

This lovely item is a tray I received yesterday in the mail from Roxanne aka Cheetah Velour! Thank you SOOO much! It has taken it's place beside all my other "mingos" in my bedroom! I was so excited afer having been at a Crisis Management class all day! It really cheered me up!

Well, more later, cuz I'm a picture takin' fool, once again!

Laundry room update

Hey all! I hope your 4th was a blast! (ha ha, get it??) Mine was ok, no big plans. I think I'll start now planning next years party, so I won't feel like I didn't make the most of the holiday! Anywho, I am coming along with my laundry room. I painted, arranged and even found some cute little signs, etc. But, my camera is not working!! So, the only thing I could post was these retro clothes pins and my little plastic ringer washer. I will find my old camera today and take more. Still welcoming your vintage laundry stuff. I love ideas! Also, one more day to post on how to deal with boredom with your "stuff". I'll pick a winner tomorrow!!! Tues.
