stole borrowed some white roses from my neighbor's rose bush.
They were calling me from my porch.
I'm sure she won't mind.
She only lives there part time and rarely at this time of year, so she usually misses them blooming.
How sad to miss something so beautiful.
As I was getting something to drink yesterday, I realized that I had forgotten to tell you another old-fashioned thing that I do.
I use metal ice cube trays.
Ice makers weren't common in 1950s refrigerators, even though they were invented for them in 1953.
I don't mind :)
I also drink out of Ball jars most of the time.
If I'm not mistaken, I think it's a trend now, but I've been doing it for years.
A few weeks ago at the swap meet, a man gave me some vintage scissors for free, because he was packing up and didn't want whatever was left on his table.
I was thrilled!
I found a couple more 1930s cookbooks and a 1950s barbecue book in an antique shop last weekend too.
I love looking through them and can't wait to use them.
My aprons are at the ready ;)
I also bought a refurbished fan from the 1930s for my bedroom. I want to cool the room off without the standup air conditioner for as long as I can, because it's so ugly and loud.
Pictures coming soon ;)
So, just a bit of this and that today.
I'm looking forward to the weekend, how about you?
Thank you all so much for your support on my last post.
It truly means the world to me :)
