Joining in on the fun at Rednesday and Vintage Thingie Thursday.


  1. Those are all great! So nostalgic. Happy Rednesday!

  2. Enjoyed seeing your choices of reds. I really like that chuck wagon card.

  3. Oh the Mickey Mouse Club. What memories! I used to rush home from school to watch the show on TV.Cute, cute. Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

  4. I read this right before going to sleep last night and had dreams of the Mickey Mouse club. That was fun. lol Great post. Keep them up!!!!

  5. These are so great! My sister has told me many times how she would hurry home to watch the Micky Mouse Club! For me, must-see TV was The Partridge Family!
    Happy REDnesday,

  6. Sally, I can't wait to see your embroidery. I'm excited for you! It's so sad as we get older and our relatives start dying off. Don't you feel like your the last one left with no older people around? ANyway, I'll give my Auntie a hug from you too!

  7. Truly you visit me just as I am trying to find you! I can't tell you how many different ways I typed your blog name to try and find you. I guess I should have used that neat vintage typewriter of yours! This is such a cute post. I recall how very serious I felt about membership cards. Always a sweet memory here! Elizabeth

  8. I love me some Mickey Mouse! I miss Disneyland. I am hoping to make it to Disneyworld this year and say hi to the gang. :) Some of us never grow up! xox!!

  9. the first thing that comes to me is..."who's the leader of the club...that's made for you and me...M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!!!
    Wat a cute post...thanks for putting a smile on my face, my sweet friend!

  10. So very cool! I especially love the Mickey Mouse Club card. Those had to be some amazing times to live in!


  11. How fun! Those were pretty smart advertising techniques when you think about it. I always loved the part in the movie The Christmas Story when he gets his secret decoder ring and it's a commercial for Ovaltine, lol!

  12. Nice! How could we forget the MM club.

  13. Hi Sally!
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting. It's always nice to hearing from you, my sweet friend!
    I wanted to respond to your questions about my embroidered bunnies. I got the pattern at a local quilt shop, but, it's from "Bunny Hill Designs". They are on the internet and you can tune in to see what patterns they have at the moment. They have the sweetest images to embroider and quilt. I have a number of their patterns for other pretties, too.
    The thread that I used was given to me by my cousin. She had an antique shop for several years and the vintage thread I photographed is very old. The pattern calls for DMC floss and, I think it's the best for color selection and quality.
    I hope you have good luck finding just what you want at Bunny Hill Designs.
    Thanks, again, for popping by!
    Blessings and hugs,
    Carolynn xo

  14. It's me again, Sally....By the way, I just thought of "Turkey Feathers" (an adorable blog with wonderful embroidery patterns...some are free) and "My Vintage Mending" (Renee gives sweet patterns on her blog away quite often...and they're free). If you go through her archives you will find several free patterns and her blog is filled with cute ideas for ways to use your embroidery in projects.)
    I hope this gets you inspired, my sweet friend!

  15. These are so cool! I was born in 1956. Great finds!

  16. It's me again....You are so funny and you put a smile on my face with your great sense of humor! I know what you mean about projects...and, dream spinning. If you wake up one of these days and say..."Today's the day!", just let me know. I really would love to pass this little parcel on.
    Thanks for not sharing my email address...Who know whose lurking out. >;}
    Have a happy evening and I'm glad you were cheered!
    Carolynn :)
