Kool Aid and Vintage Musings

This time of year brings on memories of
my sweet mother and Nana.

Maybe it just makes me think of those carefree days of childhood ---- riding bicycles -- drinking kool aid (o dear I can't imagine what colour my insides

look like) -- playing red light -- going home when the street lights came on -- a quick bath -- snack -- slipping into cool crisp cotton sheets -- then getting up the next day to do it all again.
Recently I have become quite enamored with vintage everything.
I inherited quite a few linens from my mother in law.
As well as lovely platters and jugs.
Please indulge part my collection

I use all of these things on perhaps not a daily but quite regular basis.
The image of linens flapping in a warm summer breeze .......
I want to start looking in thrift stores for vintage pillow cases and anything else I can find.
I have also seen instructions on how to crochet edging onto pillow cases.

Uh oh ----- another project!!!!!
I did see a set of dishes in a little store on our main street that I really have to check out. 

Here are a cream and sugar that dates back to the late 1700's
It has been passed on to me from my grandmother and I believe was brought to Canada by her family from France or Switzerland when they emigrated

Don't get me wrong I love my modern conveniences too.

Couldn't live without my stand mixer
and rockin red food processor
my HD TV
and couldn't just wouldn't give up my Android phone
o yes and frozen puff pastry

I guess I am thinking to myself that right now I am lucky to be living the life I am.
