It’s the little things, y’all….

And since I will take a victory whenever and wherever I can, I consider my weekend productive and accomplished. This may sound weird, but I spent most of it doing dishes. And enjoying my 80-degrees-in-November weather! (Seriously. Everyone I know is all like “I want cooler temps!” and “I can’t wait for winter!” But I am just enjoying these unseasonably warm days while they last, because I don’t like cold weather.) So the reason I did dishes all day long…

It’s taken me a while.

It’s taken me a while.

But I’m finally getting around to another None Left Behind post. And that? Is just a post where I showcase something that I never leave behind, usually something vintage found in my thrift hunts. Have you ever seen one of these? It’s a West Bend Penguin Hot and Cold Server Ice Bucket. I can’t remember if my parents or even grandparents had one of these, but apparently they were a staple in many households post WWII. Made in the USA…

I recognized them immediately as Libbey’s “Holiday” Santa tall cocktail glasses from the 1970s. In fact, according the the catalog at that link, these were around in 1972. But my set was different. Obviously branded for a holiday promotion with Jack’s Restaurants, they were in such…

What do you NEVER leave behind?

What do you NEVER leave behind?

It’s day six of #NaBloPoMo (Edit: most NaBloPoMo entries have been removed in an effort to clean the blog up a bit.) and already, I’m feeling a bit burned out. But it’s Saturday, and we get an extra hour, so there’s that. And I guess this is as good a late night day as any to launch a new category, “None Left Behind”. It’s not as serious or philanthropic as it sounds, though. It’s just that as a vintage collector…
