In honor of Summer…..


I have been saving these images just for the right time, and I think that this Rednesday is perfect! Right at the end of summer….

DQ resturant

Dairy Queen was a big part of my youth, I remember going to these a lot….I loved the signs even as a kid….especially at night when the neon was lit up.

I guess my love of primary colors started early, I loved the Red, blue, yellow and green spoons with the swirls on the ends…..

DQ spoons

And the banana split boats that came a bit later…..


This was from Etsy, I missed the chance to have them…..the pink ones were the first design….

We had a DQ just like this in Tempe down by AZ State University….we went there a lot in high school….


So if you have one near you, go have a chocolate dipped cone, they are still my favorite. Oh and if you want real French fries, this is the place to hit. They make them when you order them! Hot, Crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle….Yum!DQ 1

Thanks for stopping by! :):)

I totally forgot about what the spoons and boats looked like! It has been ages since I have been to a DQ. A chocolate dip cone sounds really good!
There is still a "walk up" DQ building in Wichita. I am not sure if it is still open or not.
Thank you for the memory

Hi Sandy! I almost stopped for a soft serve on my way home from the grocery store today, but felt guilty for not being able to bring one home for the girls! I love the red teapot in your Sunday post - every time I go to Home Goods they don't have the pieces I want!

That looks just like the Dairy Queen we had in NJ. There are Dairy Queens all over in Texas, but they no longer look like the early ones. I had completely forgotten about the spoons and the dishes.

We enjoyed a little place like this when I was courting, but it was not a Dairy Queen. I think it was called Orange something.

Great photos! Our Dairy Queen has a modernized outside, but enlarged vintage photos inside. I never tire of studying them, especially the dresses.

Awwww, great memories. I also spent a lot of time at the 'Tastee-Freeze' since my brother and all his cute friends worked there in the Summer. :-D


Love DQ and so happy that one is just down the road. I forgot the cool containers that they used!

What's Your True Age?
Are you as old as you feel or as what the calendar says?

Laura said...

We love that we have a Dairy Queen down the road from us:) I wish they would make those plastic boats again. This was one of our familys favorite place to go on a hot sunny day!
