The sun’s out and hopefully the temps will climb with some much desired melting of the snow dumped last night – another six inches in our region. Brrrrrr . . .
It’s an ETSY afternoon today at Cameo Impressions! While the snow and ice do their wintry thing out my window, I’m making the most of a bitterly cold day with this cheery fellow! He’s making a retro statement for all his fellow snowmen – be they mounds of icy white bundled one on top of the other outside, or cute little crafty bits displayed on a mantle vignette inside!
He’s made of velour plastic and twirls about while his music box beneath plays Jingle Bell in chorus and verse. I’ve just uploaded him to my Etsy shop today – do stop by and read all about him!
But, ENOUGH of chilly thoughts!
No matter how cute and musical our Frosty is, I need to warm up with thoughts of SUMMERTIME fun!
Here’s a harbinger of SUMMER! Yes – warm breezes blow as you set your picnic table with this vintage 1950’s foursome of colorful sectioned plastic plates and cups by Steri-Lite. Click on the link and enjoy the close-up shots of these retro colors and a little bit of TRIVIA about where Steri-Lite comes from! Then – help mom put the potato salad, baked beans and hamburger platter on the table before making good use of your retro plate and cup. Which color would you chose?
Once that great summer picnic luncheon is over, you can spend a lazy summer afternoon hanging out on the hammock with a few good books! Three, to be exact – and some old friends from childhood literature: The Bobbsey Twins! Here are three vintage editions from the 1950’s of stories that originally date to the early 20th century. I love how they are each set in the summertime, too! Get a closer look when you click on the link – and learn the real story behind Laura Lee Hope – the alleged author of the tales. There’s three mysteries in this set – enough to keep an avid reader busy on a warm summer’s afternoon . . .
. . . Even though it is decidedly winter at the moment.
