My evenings have been spent quietly quilling snowflakes, and doing laundry.
Here are some of the flakes I've been working on. Some of them I did in October.
Hobby Lobby had some little hot fix crystals that are meant to be ironed onto clothing. But I've found they can easily be glued onto the flakes to add a bit of "bling" and sparkle to a few of them.
I've been listening to a station on my computer that plays Traditional Country Classics from the 1940s--1970s. Here is the LINK if you'd like to take a listen.
I like it because they really do play the oldies such as Hank Snow, Hank Williams and Marty Robbins. It's neat to think that these songs could be the songs my grandparents listened to when they were my age. There were a lot of sad songs...cheatin' songs, and songs about lovin' another, etc. But there were some funny ones too!
Like this one from Roger Miller called "Dang Me"
"Roses are red, violets are purple, sugar is sweet and so is maple syrple"....Dude must have been smokin' some wacky tobacky when he wrote that one. Haha.
Wanted to take a bit of time to share a bit of art by Stevan Dohanos. Here is what Wikipedia has to say about Stevan Dohanos. He painted 123 covers for the Saturday Evening Post and many paintings for different companies and advertisements. He was born in Lorain, Ohio.
Here are just a few of his Saturday Evening Post Covers that I enjoy looking at.
|This one from 1944 is entitled "Penny Candy". It's a cute one and reminds me of the little grocery store we had in Epping.|
Well, that's all for today. Until another day,
Have a Happy Vintage Day!
