Winner of the Blo mold and some Bright Kitchen Pix

Kitchen sink with bright vintage plastic
More bright plastic and chalkware
Aprons and textiles, see my electric sizzors in the corner? in the turquoise case? Montgomery Ward!
Mecky send me your info at xbettiexdol@aol.com! and be sure to visit her blog -it's so fun!

These pix are part of the annual transformation back to the pastels and bright colors that I love. After Christmas, don't ya just long for a little less clutter? Of course, many people think this is extreeeeme clutter, but you vintage blog lovers understand me, right??
The only thing is, I can't find everything that I took down waaaaaayyyyy back in September when I put out my Fall and Halloween! It's still a work in progress. And the crummy camera is still the only one I have. Stay tuned for the rest of the house!

You know I love it when you transition to the pastels! Congrats to the blo mold winner! I found cracks in my Santa when putting him away this year so I guess I'll be on the lookout for another one as I thrift!
hugs, Linda

Thanks Linda! I still use my cracked ones, because as you know as a Grandma and reading the Velveteen Rabbit, they are loved. But, you never know, maybe someone will send one your way (nudge nudge wink wink)!!

Mecky said...

OH My!, I am so excited! I really did want one of these! Thank you Sooo much!

I do understand the less clutter thing. As a vintage lover, how do we choose to let even one thing go?

I found a little Rudolph blo-mold this year, which was great because I'd already gotten a HUGE Santa at the flea market in August. I couldn't believe it was still there on a Sunday but I guess maybe because it was $25 AND the middle of August no one was thinking Christmas! They would've let me have the HUGE African-American Santa & Mrs. Claus too for $50 but I only had $45 and they refused to budge. I probably would've pissed off half my redneck neighbors though so just as well they didn't make it to my front porch. I have no idea where 3/4 of my stuff is but then when you find it after you've given up looking for it, it's like Christmas!!! Your kitchen is fabulous!

Congrats to Mecky! They are so addicting. Now I'm ready to look for Easter blow molds!

Zootsuitmama said...

That's funny Chris! Yes Susie, I have my Easter ones, but not any Valentine ones.

Mecky said...

I received the Santa today! Oh he is beautiful! Thank you so much! I think he will be spending the Winter with me, because I am not ready to pack him away!

I will share on my blog if I ever get a new computer. I can't do much with an I ipad!

Thanks again!

Zootsuitmama said...

Thanks Mecky! I had to tell everyone of my blo mold goodbye when I packed them away! Glad you like him!!
