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

Frageriffic Friday

Anybody besides me STILL fraggin' this late on a Friday afternoon??? I HOPE so.

* * * * * * * * * * *

My friend Eloise (E-Lois) came by today, picked me up, and took me to an antique shop that's only open a few days a year.

Today was one of those open days.

I went in there planning to JUST LOOK and buy nothing. I bought all this cute stuff - - - Eloise bought next to nothing.

It always seems to work out that way when I shop with Eloise. She takes me, I spend $$$$, she doesn't.

Well, at least I got some great things - - - or at least I think I got some great things.

Including this lily white chamber pot.

What's that? You don't know what a chamber pot is????

I ain't tellin', you'll just have to google.

This is what libraries USED to look like.
Quaint and Cute.

Not so much anymore
I kinda miss those "olden days."

Olden is a very Wisconsin word.

I worked at our not so olden city library today.

I wore one pair of these library shoes.

OK, so the zebra pair aren't QUITE kosher.
The rules said, "No thong type flip flops."
I choose to believe these are sandal type flip flops.
Until someone tells me not to wear them,
I'm wearing them.

I don't think our grandson Mackinley realizes it's HOT outside.

* * * * * * * * * * *

This is our fashionista daughter, Korie.
These are her newish glasses.

She says they are the latest thing.
If she says so, I believe her.

Of course, she'd be cute no matter WHAT she wore!

Another gorgeous little teapot that I resisted buying for myself.

And check out all the Friday Fragments.

Cute finds! I love the teapot, it would have had to come home with me:) Cute NEW glasses and sock hat on your grandson:) I happen to KNOW what a chamber pot is! Remember I am OLD, hehe!

Have a blessed evening! HUGS!

Now Korie looks both super smart to go with her "cute".

I love your finds at the antique store. Lots of red there, girl.

My goodness you better not go with your friend anymore. You really went hog wild in your purchases. I can relate to so many of the things you got. I am sure we will see just how you chose to use them.

Just think of all the $$$$ you saved so you can spend it on WI football. By the way the University of Northern Iowa just scheduled Wisconsin for next season. They (UNI) need the money. I believe they also play Iowa in preseason that year too. Good for them.

Haha! I may be just a babe in age, but even I know what a chamber pot is! Lol. Blugh.

My deceased SIL used to invite me out to eat and after I ordered, she would tell the server she didn't care for anything! I would get so mad at her but she was a tiny little thing- so cute and sweet. I couldnt stay mad at her for long.

I use to have two wall hangings with doorknobs. Looking at those I kinda wish I still had mine. Love the red goodies. Yes, those glasses are in!!! Have a nice weekend.

You got all that stuff?? Yowsza! You had a field day. I've always liked the vintage red utensils and the three "hooks" - oh swoon!

Erin said...

You have caught the antiquing bug! Looks like you found some great stuff. I think it would be fun to serve soup out of a chamber pot - a really clean one of course. Just to see what people might say. ;)
