2012-12-29_08-45-35_227Well now that I have no swaps to do….not sure what I will be posting….Here is what I replaced my Hot Chocolate Bar (that I set up at Christmas) with. Some of the vintage that I have been collecting. An old fashion nut grinder, my mom had one just like this but some other family member has it. This is one that I got from a friends yard sale. 50 cents! The receipt card is the very first thing I painted back in the early 80’s very primitive. My sister and I spent a day together painting these. A vintage shredded wheat tin, along with a vintage shredded wheat tin receipt card box. and the Better Homes cook book from the 60’s. Love all this red vintage.
005And here is an updated pic of Norma E. My vintage mannequin named in memory of my mother Norma Elizabeth. She is sporting lot of new stick pins and charms. Some received in swaps and some I made. The gold name NORMA was my mom’s I still have to find an E for her. Some how I have to fit this into my RV.
