Wacky Pack Wednesday

I think everyone can guess today's Wacky Pack, right? Tic Tacs go back to 1969. Wow.


Thanks for stopping by!

More Envelopes

I made another batch of mail art envelopes, using magazine pages-- what a fun way to recycle!






Hope you get some good mail today!

Mason Jar Card

Between allergies and sinuses I made a couple note cards for my Etsy shop this weekend. As I was working on this one, I remembered some blog had a theme recently of "jars." Either using something that came in a jar (like glitter) or have a picture of a jar on your project. The theme title is actually "Out Of The Jar." The blog is Shopping Our Stash so I decided to link up.


Nice springy colors. Hope March cooperates!! Thanks for viewing.

1967 Furniture From Sears

Here are some of the furniture offerings from the Sears 1967 Spring/Summer catalog. Lots of bentwood back in the day. I have a rocking chair styled after this one in my dollhouse.

Not a fan of plaid upholstery, but these styles aren't bad at all.

Danish Modern anyone? I like this look. Unfortunately for me, my parents leaned toward the style in the next photo.

Yeah, about as far away from "modern" as you can get! 

Hmm...

We had a rocking love seat somewhat similar to the chair on the right. I never thought too much about its looks back then-- it was pretty comfortable though.

And the least expensive piece is now the most sought after and expensive. Go figure.

Hope you have comfy seating as you blog hop today!

Turquoise Postcard

I stumbled onto a blog called International Mail Art Project, and one of the posts is asking for postcards with the theme "Turquoise." Kind of intriguing. It went all the way to Austria (in excellent time too) and is posted with others here. My submission is all magazine paper.
Thanks for viewing!

Wacky Pack Wednesday

This is an older Wacky from 1973. Do you know what the original product name is? I had to look it up. Krispy Crackers saltines made by Sunshine. Apparently these are still available. I don't think I've seen them in years.

Have a good one!

Greetings

Sunday Postcard Art's theme this week is "Pieces of Pictures." I took a literal route and cut pieces from pictures in magazines. Enough to fill a 4" x 6" space. So which arrangement do you prefer? This first one is just random.

This one is alternating (more or less) flowers with landscapes.

Below is a color type arrangement.

This one is sort of alternating colors.

And this one is logical-- from sky down to flowers.

I went logical with a little tweaking. After I glued the pieces down, I had no idea what to do with it. I decided it looked like a real postcard so went with that.

Hope you find yourself somewhere pleasant today.  Thanks for viewing!
