Discombobulated for sure!

I wish I knew why I seem to be really scattered right now… is the weirdest thing…just can’t “seem to light” as my mother would say… a flighty bird!

Things on the homestead couldn’t be better, the weather is great, my kids are great….so what is up?????  Wish I could tell you.

I spent some time on Flickr, sometimes just getting my mind calm helps….and I found a person who goes by the name of “salty cotton” that has done incredible research and scanned a ton of vintage advertisements for everything you can think of!  Here are just a few of the at least hundred they have. You know me and my love of vintage graphics….:)




This is not for toy trucks, but real ones…look at the colors!

I want one of these carriers…..:)


I would have had a hard time picking a color back then…..


Metal kitchen cabinets….still not a favorite…..


OK….gingham Formica topped tables…in yellow and red????  I have never seen one of these!  Hate the chairs, but the table???  Be still my heart!


I want all of these vintage ones please…..:)  look at those tins and bottles!

Vintage Rubbermaid ad…..


These two flower packets are incredible!!!!!


Pretty enough to frame, don’t you think?????

And the last one???  Part of a painting company ad…..and yes, I will take this one please….

Just click on the photo to go to their site!  I got some of the fabric toweling for placemats and a runner…..perfect for my Fiesta ware!

Oh and I almost forgot….tomorrow is…….


And yes, at times I feel the amount of candles is correct! LOL

Thanks for stoppin’ by…….

I love the seeds the best so gorgeous it would make me want to plant those for sure!!
Thanks for the tip on the images too. And Happy Birthday. I'm sure you are quite young, (my son will turn 50 this year) you know how to feel young don't you? Pal around with old people. When I lunch at the Senior Center I feel like a teenager in there no kidding, now those people are old!! I leave with just a spring in my step!!

Hi Sandy,

It was so fun to see all those vintage ads. Everything was just so more fun and colorful back then! I know the feeling you're describing--I can just end up walking myself in circles some days.

Happy Birthday! I hope you have a truly special day.

Oh the gingham table take's me back to my child hood (wish I would have kept it).
Your blog has got to be one of the cutest blog's I have seen.

Tresa said...

Happy belated Birthday! Thank you for sharing the vintage ads. I love 'em too. I've been feeling the same as you lately. I feel like the lights are on but nobody's home. Maybe it is just "that time of year...."

Hearts Turned said...

Oh! These are wonderful, Sandy! Thanks so much for sharing them...I'll have to check out that site!

I know what you mean about "can't seem to light"--I've been feeling that way a lot lately. Just never had a good term for it--I'll have to borrow your mother's!

Wishing you a beautiful "lighted" day, dear friend!
