Summer Days

Summer days have come to an end.

I feel like I missed the whole season.

(I will be back with a more positive attitude once I am done with this annoying end of the summer cold)

Feelin Groovy

A young friend of ours just turned 40....
so a 70's party was in order!!!

I found some groovy party decor at the Goodwill.
Unfortunately, a storm blew in when the party was just getting started and I didn't get any photos of the all the outdoor decorations.....macrame, glass grapes, mushrooms and lots of brown, gold and orange.

I hunted for 70's items for weeks!
I was thrilled to get most items for under $5 at my favorite Goodwill store.
Including this lava lamp for 99 cents!

Tiki guys for 49 cents each!

A 70's Candy Sampler brought back some memories.
Friendie (my 4 year old grandson) said the Fruit Stripe Gum smells like fruit, but tastes like cardboard....he is SO right!!!!

The cake turned out great!
(I did NOT make the cake)

I was searching for our "threads" up until the day of the party.
I made a last minute stop and found these white GoGo just my size!
My husband is wearing my Dad's old racing shirt, but the rest of our outfits came from the Goodwill for a total cost of $20....
don't we look like 100 20 bucks???  :)

Yes...that is a Mood Ring on my finger....
but I didn't need a ring to tell me that I was "Feelin Groovy"!!!!

Someone's Treasures

A while back I bought a wooden box at an auction.
Inside the box I found this locket.

I also found a type written poem dated 1948.

I do not know if the locket and the poem belonged to the same person,
but I do know they were someone's cherished treasures.

How sad that they ended up in a wooden box at an auction.
