Like many people my mother had Pyrex dishes when I was growing up, though the above baking dishes I recently found in the picture above were not them. She had the Early American pattern.
My uncle gave my sister and I our copies of Dr. Seuss books I still have our copies but they are not the above ones since ours are in pretty rough shape. When I see Dr. Seuss toys, if not too over priced, I pick them up. The Cat In The Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2 totally take me back to bed time stories when I was little. Still today once in awhile I manage to work in Sam-I-Am into a conversation from Green Eggs And Ham.
Star Trek, I watched the series in reruns when I was little and also watched it as a cartoon. My favorite episode had the crew go to a planet and whatever they thought about would happen. The above picture has a game box and a few trading cards I found in a mixed package of cards.
The Partridge Family of course, I watched it, what kid in the 70's didn't. I had a Partridge Family coloring book at my grandparents cabin which when I had to go fishing with someone I took with me and colored, I had no interest in fishing.
I wouldn't want to catch anything, they would have wanted me to eat it. To this day I don't like fish. The records I found a few months ago. I must admit I've had the CD for a long time and once in awhile I will throw it on. Come On Get Happy, the theme song from the show brings back good memories. It is one of my CD's I can honestly say that my husband leaves alone. I never have to search the vehicles for it.
If you follow my blog at all you know I have a thing about glass. I think this may have started with Marbles. I can remember at my grandparents place I would dump the bag of marbles out and pick my favorites. So I thought I would share some I have that are pictured above.
More recently I have been collecting things with the Keep Calm sayings, I found the above teapot on Saturday, the tea strainer I've had for a few months and the Grindley cup and saucer are part of my good dishes. The Queen and Prince seem the right fit for the picture.
And yet another paperweight from my collection.
I do not know the maker at this point.
I love this picture.
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and greater tact
and remember that Life's
A Great Balancing Act.
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will indeed!
