Shake, rattle and let's roll! LINK UP!
These weeks just go by too darn fast! I have had NO time for thrifting, garage salen, ebaying, Notta!
Since my boys are back to school, I also like to spend time over at the Elementary school helping the teachers.
No worries though, I always have something around the house that I can drum up, that is worthy of posting for my party. I apologize for no features these days, again, time constraints....they are all so good besides and I always have a hard time who I will feature. I am sure I will again someday.
WHEN Mike and I purchased our very first home back in 1997, we were very decorating confused. We always had good taste, but really did not know what we liked. Our first home was a small one story, light pink contemporary Florida home.
We decided we would go with the retro look. Well we sure were unique at the time, as no one had that look (nor did they want it).
We would have fun scouring the antique stores for lights, vases, bar accessories, cannisters, you name it. We wound up having nice collections.
We have since as you see changed our style. However, some things have stayed with us. I would like to share some 1950's fun stuff. Glasses, drink tray, and a cool drink whistle. My Mom and sister had fun finding some things for us as well. In fact, the tray may be from my Mom.
This whistle type of stirrer must have been popular in the 50's, I suppose when you needed another drink. You would get the bartenders attention.
