Vintage Roller Skates

When is the last time you laced up those old time retro roller skates? Roller skating is a favorite past time of many Americans. I went as a young teenager and my children had many birthday parties at the local skating rink. It’s one of those old fashioned activities that has definitely stood the test of time.  Do you have an old pair just lying around?  I picked up these two pair at an auction recently. They both have wooden wheels and were made by the Chicago Skate Company. Probably from the 1950’s.

The wheels on the black pair say “Cleveland Skate Co”  The metal bottom piece says “Chicago Skate Co.”

The black pair are available for purchase at The Gypsy Chix Company on Etsy.   

The white pair are also available at The Gypsy Chix Company (just click on the link).   

These would be perfect for your skate themed retro room!

Chalkboard Painted Vase

I had a can of chalkboard paint lying around and I decided to make a little chalkboard paint vase.  I picked up this little gem from the thrift store for $1.99.  It’s pale green in color.  I like the dark black chalkboard paint against the light color of the vase. Who is Minnie? Minnie is my cute little grand-pup (on the right side of the doggie pic below). Who is Karl? He is the big golden retriever who lives behind us.  They bark at each other all the time – it’s so darn cute! I couldn’t get a good picture of Minnie and Karl together, so Lola had to do. Lola is the puppy my daughter fostered for 3 weeks – isn’t she super adorable? Seriously, super adorable!  Lola was about 6 weeks old in this picture and Minnie is 3. Minnie thought she was getting a sister....but Lola adopted out quickly.  Imagine that! Linking up with: Someday Crafts    

25 Things you might not think to bring Cruise Packing List

  Tendering away from the Carnival Spirit Since I just came off my third cruise, I thought I would put together a little cruise packing list.  I was searching on the internet and I came across so many sites that tell you to pack things like bra and underwear – well duh, I don’t need help remembering to pack things like that!   So, this is not your normal cruise packing list, this list contains stuff you might not think to bring.  Please feel free to add anything else you can think of to the comments section of the post.  1.      Walkie Talkies – since you won’t be using your cell phone on the cruise, these would have been invaluable to bring.  Notice I said ‘would have been.’ We were cruising with some friends and there were times that we wanted to get in touch with them, but we had to rely on pure luck to just “run into them . ”    2.      Power Strip – there was only one outlet to plug two items into (and it wasn’t in the bathroom). 3.      Jeans – even if you are go
