I Loved Them Then & Now...

Don'tcha just love when things come around in style again. I do! I only wish I had the knowledge then, when I actually possessed the item, that I have now! We all now that what we possess now, what's popular, lusted after, collected, will again in time have the same desire for us or someone new. When I had my first little house at 16 1/2 years old (yes, you read that right! LOL) and yes I did continue to go to school with my classmates and graduate while working two part time jobs. I had, what I thought, was an adorably decorated home. It was the 70's, and the colors were drab, avocado, orange, brown, yellow.........YUCK!! But, I always reached outside of the normal box when it came to color! :) Even then I hunted at flea markets, yard sales and discount stores to decorate with. One of my favorite pieces in my kitchen was a wooden fork and spoon pair that I think Home Interior sold. I could never afford it, but a friend's mom was throwing out a perfectly good pair!!! My friend was shocked when I asked for them. She thought they were ugly and couldn't understand why I would want them. But, I knew they were perfect for my kitchen. I hung onto them for a couple more moves and like everyone else sold, donated or gave them away.

Well, yesterday I went to Savers, a local thrift store, and found a metal fork and spoon!! YEAH!! I know you all have seen them out there in blogland, well I'm now a proud owner!! And I know exactly where they are going to go :)



















While there I also picked up this cute little frenchy sign. Love it!!

















Until Later,
