Rednesday Scramble

(Please visit Sue at Sue Loves Cherries for more Rednesday fun!)

(As they say, it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks -I can't seem to figure out 
this new blogger set up - my post looks one way on the screen in front of me 
and yet another when I look at the "preview" screen!  There's this ginormous
space that I can't get rid of.  ack!)

I don't know about you but some Rednesdays it's just slim pickins over here.  Nothing comes to mind and I have to scramble, wanting something fun to share.  Looks like today's Rednesday offering is literally a scramble of stuff! 

Mr. Peanut mechanical pencils ... food coloring from who knows what decade, found at the back of my mother's pantry ... Betty Crocker brochure cracks me up, "Betty Crocker urges you to try her Sponge Drop Tea Cakes ... a kitchen appliance thermometer brochure ... and I love the vintage illustrations in this Flying A map, so charming!


Happy Rednesday!


  1. Oh, I love your vintage brochures! That Flying A Service is a hoot.

  2. The red brochures are so neat. The red really stands out.

  3. You may have scrambled, but what a lovely scramble it is!

  4. I can't figure out the new Blogger either. I think we are supposed to just 'wing it' now - lol! Love your scramble - so fun! Have a wonderful weekend! xo

  5. Love the vintage cooking brochures. The maps are great too. I'm still waiting on Family Tree Maker. I'm dying to get going on it. Have you found out anything crazy about your family history? Have a good weekend!

  6. For "slim pickins" you were really able to put together a great little grouping of things! I've been into vintage ads like this lately. I love the maps and the Betty Crocker!
    I hope you're having a great weekend, Erica :)
