Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Thrifty Vintage Thingies - I Feel Like Travelin' On - - -



I'm linking today with Vintage Thingie Thursday at Coloradolady and Thrifty Thursday at Bloggeritaville.












Be sure you click on both of the above links to check out what everyone else is posting.

Oh girls, just LOOKY what I found in the baggage area of the Indy airport:



Aren't these just the key-utest things you've ever seen made from vintage luggage???


And I want you to know that I braved the scorn of my students - - -


Just to stop and get photos of them for Thrifty Vintage Thingies. What do students know anyway - - - they're only KIDS for Pete's sake, what can they know of the IMPORTANCE of blogging?????


And I truly do HATE to admit to you that I did NOT have time to stop and check out how they were held together.

I found it interesting that there were no signs saying "keep off," so I can ONLY assume they are safe to sit upon.

Have a great Thursday!!!!

Oh goodness, I want to make some!!! Thankfully you braved the scorn of your students - that seating is a must see and a must photograph!

Thank You!

Perfect airport furniture! Those are fun to look at!!

Patti said...

What a cool display...and I love all the colors. I imagine thy are reinforced inside with metal or steel! If they were made out of XBoxs, cell phones or iPods, the kids would have been right there beside you taking photos!!

Hey, I'm looking for a couch for my apartment next year - looks like my problem is solved.

Also, blogmomma now has a blogson (if I can remember to update regularly.)

WOW, Indy's airport has got to be the coolest! I love these, although I would be afraid to sit on one, because I'd probably cave it in!
Happy VTT!

I couldn't help noticing the Samsonite pieces...I have a gold/yellow make-up case just like the arm rest of the first chair. :)
