52 Flea Cleans Up











Recently, at a multi dealer antique center I found an old Ivory Soap box.
I brought it home and filled it with my vintage soaps.
It's perfect in a corner of my blue and white kitchen!


Today was cloudy and damp so we did a lot of reading and a bit of cooking.
I am looking forward to some sunshine tomorrow so I can get outside and take some pictures to share!

I hope you
have a wonderful week!

basically, that's what hubby and did today also. sat outside at the picnic table,visited and watched c.c. our cat play around and hunt in the grass. Bestest,Denise p.s.i so remember very well the ivory soap as a kid. so pure and it floated. that was magic for a kid :)

So the joke is:

A man and a woman are in a haunted hotel. All night they hear a scary voice say, "It flooooats...IT FLOOOOATS...." Biting her nails in terror the woman screams "STOP, STOP....WHAT FLOATS??!!" The ghost replies in a normal rather comical voice, "Ivory soap. Ivory soap floats."
the end...

Oh Laura you must have gotten so excited when you saw that box and knew exactly how you were going to use it. I was just saying to George that it's funny that modern manufacturers don't make beautiful graphics on their boxes.
Then if you left the cereal box out you wouldn't mind it so much:))
Hope you can make it on Thursday!!!
