Weekend fun and finds!!

My best friend finally got to visit this weekend! We have been "vintage partners in crime" for years! When she gets tired of something - I get it! This weekend she brought me this cool floor radio and a couple of chenille bedspreads!
Then, we went to my granddaughter's 4th and 5th birthday party. It was a bowling party...retro lockers there were awesome turquoise!
We didn't thrift much, but I did score an Ice O Mat, and the bottom white radio is a find from a couple of weekends ago! All in all a great weekend. Hope yours was fab!

How nice of your friend to give you the floor radio. That looks like it is in great shape!

You mentioned in your comments that you thik you need a tube for your radio. I wonder if you can find one on Ebay. I have seen them at auctions before.

I have never tried an Ice O mat. Do they work good?

I hadn't thought of looking on ebay for a radio tube! Thanks Mecky! Yes, the Ice o Mats work great! It's just that my hands are not as strong as they used to be! And, we are all used to fridge icemakers! LOL!

Oh I know Amber! Isn't she hilarious? That's my grandkids cousin! They were supposed to be having fun! LOL! But I think the day was too long for her. Of course, every picture taken of me and my cousins was similar! Someone was always pissed ouff, making a face, etc!!
