What old board game is out there that would use such silly cards such as these? What did they mean? I found a handful of these old game cards last week for 25 cents each. They made me laugh and I selected some insightful ones to display in an old flower frog.
Sometimes, I feel like I am a great fool! I have a knack for getting myself into silly situations. I have been dubbed “Ethel,” as in Lucy and Ethel, on more than one occasion. You remember these two, don’t you?
This could mean one of two things…. Someone could have hit her head on something and her head hurts, warranting an aspirin or other form of pain reliever. Or….. someone is a poor loser and is called a sore head. This is an old expression that I still use today.
I found two 36” square linen tablecloths priced originally at $1.00 each. What a surprise I got when I learned that all of my linen purchases would be 40% off! That made all my $1.00 finds a whole 60 cents each!!!
I found a set of four napkins with a sweet little design in the corner. They were priced at $1.00.
Sweet little daisies.
There are eight of these napkins whose edge is a Greek key design. I paid a little more for this set, but they were still a bargain at under $2.00.
I will most likely use this lace runner on top of a guest room dresser. It has a small stain on it, but once I work my magic with the stain remover I used last week, it should be good as new.
I think that these two lace scarves will make nice placemats. They and the runner were also originally priced at $1.00 each.
I found this ceramic bird in the clearance section of someone’s booth. She was a mere $2.00 and I’ve set her on a shelf on the side of my kitchen sink. I wish I’d had her for my Feathered Friends post last week.
I found this heavy old wooden drawer in an thrift market for $5.00. I was told it was used to hold parts for the old National Cash Register Company here in Dayton. I love the yellow stenciled label, as well as what I am assuming is the bin label. It is usually stacked with magazines and rests on my fireplace hearth.
Scrabble game letters @ 25 cents each make up the name of my blog.
