I found a few great LP's at one of my favorite local thrift stores to add to my collection of sound track albums. I didn't have this one:
"Saludos Amigos" - in fact, I had never even seen it before. (Yes, I WAS familiar with the film.) Tickled to have it for my Disney collection:
And I have quite a few of the animated classics LP's, but I didn't have Snow White - so now, I do:
I am always very happy to find the original record sleeves inside, as well. The lady who owned these previously apparently liked to circle the ones she had. I didn't find Dumbo, or I'd have gotten that, as well::
I did find "Gone With The Wind" - love it:
And I picked up these last two because I simply love the cover art.
"Destination Moon" -, retro rocket, man:
And "Le Sacre du Savage", from Les Baxter and his Orchestra love those tiki graphics:
We don't go out to dinner all that often, so I really enjoy it when we do.
We had not been to Applebee's for quite awhile, and there was something new on the menu that sounded so good to me, I actually dared to try something new!
(Normally I am a creature of habit, and I have just a couple of favorites that are my "go to" items every single visit.)
This time, I had Margarita Queso Chicken And Shrimp.
Sorry my photo below is rather blurry:
Boy, was I ever happy with THAT choice.
I thought it was delicious, and I will definitely have it again.
I brought half of it home, and I am truly looking forward to eating my leftovers for dinner tonight.
Useful things, discovered at thrift stores are what I am featuring today. First up, colorful thread on wooden spools , nestled onto a Disneyland (!) plate. I was pretty tickled when I found that plate!
"Specially hand made by", Rose, Dorothy, Grace, etc. - sweet little woven labels:
Adjustable straps for your unmentionables:
Don't want to worry about your bra straps showing? How about some vintage "Lingerie Guards" to help you out?
Rayon and satin blanket binding. I think I actually have a vintage blanket or two that could use some new binding!
And round elastic cord - now, I am certain I can find a use for this as well!
I always pick up little things like these at thrift shops. You just never know what you might find when you really take the time to look!
Our favorite mayonnaise here in this house is, and always has been, Best Foods (known also as Hellman's east of the Rockies).
I found some examples of advertisements (most of them including recipes) from a number of decades to share with you today.
First up, this one from 1930:
A recipe for a picnic-style salad from 1944:
Chicken salad , circa 1955:
Cole slaw, from 1966 - you know, I can still hear their commercial jingle in my head "Bring out the Best Foods, and bring out the best!":
In our humble opinion, it truly IS the best, and absolutely nothing else will do. This ad with ideas for burger toppings is from 1970:
"Magically moist chicken", from 1986:
And this is the way it looks "Now":
As it happens, our favorite mayonnaise is celebrating 100 years this year!
And if WE have anything to say about it, there will be hundreds more to come.
We love 'ya, Best Foods - Happy 100 Years to the Best!
