Among my Souvenirs

Well, Americans took to the roads on Route 66 in the fifties, and brought back a lot of these prizes! Show me your souvenirs!

Oooh, I just listed a couple of souvenir postcard hot pads in my etsy store. I'll have to do a post on my blog about them because I don't think many folks know what they are.

Of all the movies I watch, and I have watched many, road trip movies and coming of age movies are my favorites.

I know I have travel stuff here and there... I used to collect it more... Vintage suit cases with vintage travel stickers, water slip decals to put on your car window, post cards and such.

Ahh once again, not sure if I can find enough (easily) to photograph for a blog post, but I'll keep it in mind!

(I still haven't done the plastic post, or the five and dime post grrr... Work, my Dear, I've been working very hard...)

Hey 50's Atomic! I wish I could say I have found steady work by now, but I haven't! I have had lots of second interviews, but no full time work yet. I'd love to see anything you post any time!
