Vintage Thingie Thursday

Suzanne is back in full swing and ready for all of our "vintage" treasures.

This past  week I saw this at a garage sale for $1.00.  I was drawn to it by the orange color.

After looking it over, I decided I wanted to bring it home. The pans (there are three) in the box don't  look like they have ever been used.

Happy hunting!!

Outdoor Wednesday

I'm joining Susan today for Outdoor Wednesday.

I have a few things in bloom here in Kansas, I haven't bought any mums yet but I intend to do that this week.

My sedum is turning a pretty purple, it's one of my favorite fall flowers.

I was surprised to see that this moss (I think that's the common name) is still blooming.

We are enjoying some beautiful fall weather here, it will not get over 80 degrees all week, I so love it.

Pink Saturday
For Pink Saturday I am showing my newest addition  in vintage magazines.  This is a magazine from the year and month of my birth.

Love the slipcovers and the wallpaper in this painting.

The Post had about 5 stories in this edition.

One of the advertisements.
I love that men in the 1940's wore pink too.

A couple of cute cartoons (in pink no less).

Hope you have a very pinky weekend.
