      Um, Mer, no. Have to stop. Husband about to kill me. Bought some vintage clothes and a few trinkets, that’s all…

    Now that is the way to start the day!! Thanks for sharing! Really wish I could have been there! So many temptations! I am in love with the kitchen!

    Wow! Can you imagine the excitement of using that kitchen for the first time?! I’m a 50s tile kinda gal, but I’m in love with that pink formica bathroom. Uhhhh, I hope this house bought the owners lots and lots of joy! It’s just amazing!

    Love the napkin holders and the froggy sponge holder – definately would have gotten those! I’m looking forward to some good house sales this year – not allways the cheapest, but it is fun to explore older houses and see how the familes lived and decorated. It’s great that you took pictures to share Pam.

      Shane, I opened the box – seems like the Thermaster was an insulated box and within it, was another insulated container. I’m guessing the whole get-up was used to pack large lunches for the men going to work at the factory. On top of the Thermaster was an electric potato peeler. I didn’t look at it too closely…my head already was spinning…but it seemed that it was a bowl with plastic scalpels, you added the potatoes, rotated it, and I guess they got peeled. Hmmm.

    Love it all, but especially the bedroom furniture. Oh, and I have one of those bright orange plastic flower thingies (mine is a napkin holder) that are above the sink.

    Pam, thanks for the fab pics! I’ll take the whole house! Did the pink lamps in the bedroom sell? I would buy those straight away!
