I knew this would happen!


I decided not to get into the Pink & Brown Swap because I knew the minute the pressure was on, I would not find one single pink and/or brown object.  And of course, now that I'm not participating that's all I can find!  Seriously baked on filthy grimy pink Pyrex casserole. The white bowl has a thick layer of dust too.  Nice poo brown refrigerator dish that matches one I got a couple weeks ago.


This is a very cute Lane Cedar mini chest/jewelry box.  I seem to remember seeing a coupon in Seventeen Magazine, maybe when I was a teenager in the 70's, for a free one of these.  It was a gift from your local furniture store.  This one says Levitz inside, but doesn't have a key.  It's in good shape and has a great cedar smell, yum!

The Phyllis A. Whitney book takes place on Staten Island, NY.  It seems to be a period mystery set during the Civil War and was written in 1955.  I've learned that Ms. Whitney lived for a while on Staten Island which is a short ferry ride from Manhattan.   We briefly looked at houses there a couple years ago.  There are some huge and beautiful Victorian homes there, many of which have seen better days.  Sadly, some of them have been broken into apartments or made into rooming houses.  Anyway, that's why I got the book; I hope I can get interested in it.


A brown washcloth on pink needles!  I noticed that last night.  And yes, it's sitting on an Easter placemat.  Sometimes I just grab what's handy.

I think by the time I graduated, only 4 years later than you, maybe they were already out of fashion. Somehow I remember seeing them in Seventeen magazine, but maybe when I was younger? Oh well. I'm pretty happy with it, I have it on my dresser. It's nice to hear you still have yours.

I have that same pink Pyrex dish, and those same aluminum canisters in the back except I'm missing Flour. LOL on the poo brown--what were the geniuses at Anchor-Hocking thinking when they approved that color choice? Cool rolling pin, too!

Ha! You see! You'd be all set for the P&B swap! I hear that pink pyrex is hard to come by. When are we going thrifting? I've been a crappy friend and should be in touch more. We should atleast try to get together for lunch or dinner. Lord knows I love to eat lately!
