VINTAGE THINGIES THURSDAY HURRAY


Just found another great post opportunity. "Vintage Thingies Thursday" I can do Vintage-- I am Vintage. Until 3 years ago at the cabin we had avacado green countertops, and a refrigerator the same color until about 6 years ago. The girls in our family would love to redo my house and I would love to win the lottery so they could. I cannot tell you the last time anyone saw me in an apron and yet my fondest memories of my grandmothers always have them wearing one.
Please visit here for all things vintage and a fun time.

This is a photo of some great friends and neighbors of ours. They have 7 or 8 antique Model T's and Model A. This is their newest baby. It was in about 10 pieces when he found it and hauled it home and put it back together. They all run-- very smoothly, thank you.




The following pictures are of a great store that just opened a branch in my neighborhood. It's called "Hip and Humble" and is owned by two sisters that grew up in our neighborhood. They deal in retro and vintage originals and reproductions.
I was so excited when I rounded the corner in the small shopping center and there it was in front of me.

I would love to quit my day job & open a vintage store like you showed. That would be wonderful fun. Maybe in 10 years or so when the kids leave home! Thanks for sharing.

For your daily dose of vintage goodness & a bit of silliness, stop by Confessions of an Apron Queen, the home of Vintage Thingies Thursdays.

Welcome! I remember a lady who owned T truck like this she drove
this car well in the 1970's. This
one is in beautiful condition!
I like the goodies in the store.
Also I enjoyed your Memorial Day
tribute. My father also WW II vet.
I have tribute to his training
camp on other family history blog!
