Black and White Photos

A few recent additions to our corner of ACM that make me smile...
Old black and white photos are always welcome in Booth 58.  Mom and I feel like they add a little personality to our stuff.  We use many of our own family's stash from decades ago... and we add new "friends" like these ...
LOVE these ....old bathing beauties sporting some swim attire from yester-year..... The one with the four girls makes me think of my girlfriends' getaway that is planned for July.... Can't wait!  Our swimsuits are a little different now but, we are all in our "Mommy Years",  so we're also quite modest! 

Isn't this old pagent picture great?  We nestled this Patriotic Queen in front of some red metal letters that Mom found this month.

Vintage Signs

Tried my hand at these this Father's Day weekend. While Hubby worked in the garage, I piddled some too..... he was sweet to help me cut some of the boards when my measuring didn't quite work out.

Dad made a "beach access" sign years ago that hangs by the pool now.  We like to pretend!

I think the "groceries" sign is my fave.  Love the old red paint.

I had a ball pulling these together from old barn wood that Mr. 58 brought me from the farm.  I'm a bit nostalgic about these because they come from my childhood home, BUT I'm hoping someone will find them as "treasures" in the booth.  There is plenty of old wood to go around.

He does it all

Today we celebrate another important birthday…

Who can repurpose a dining room table, paint 5 picture frames, make 3 chalkboards, fix a barb wire fence, feed 30 head of cattle, make a fresh veggie omelet, and hit every garage sale in a 15 mile radius… all before 8 a.m.? Mr. 58! He can do it all!

Mom and I know Booth 58 would not be the same without him. He always has a positive attitude and pushes us the extra mile when we need it… or helps us to relax and have fun when we need it. He is the all around best partner we could ask for… he cooks, he cleans, he paints, he builds, he babysits…Like I said, he can do it all!

Happy Birthday Dad… You’re the Best!  We all love you.

Long Live Vintage

I’m not naming names, but a certain Mrs. 58 had an important birthday this weekend.

The family celebrated her this weekend with some of her favorites… a chocolate pie from the Pantry, cold boiled shrimp, and a backyard pool party with her favorite little people... all of which think Grandmother is the best!

We surprised her with a few vintage themed gifts….

I looked up the word vintage: Of old, recognized, and enduring interest, importance, or quality: classic

If you know her, you will agree… she is just that – classic… year after year.

Happy Birthday Mom. Love you more!

Thank you, Beth, for highlighting Booth 58 this weekend. You always do a great job of showcasing McKinney.
We love McKinney too, and we are thankful for neighbors like you who make it the best!

We'd been following On the Square for a year, not realizing that Beth is my MIL's sweet neighbor...The internet is a crazy place! I love when it makes our world a little "smaller."

Vintage 1950's Airplane

We recently picked up this vintage 1950's hand made airplane from an estate sale. Mr. 58 had a nostalgic moment as he recalled that these little planes were very popular with the boys of his era. Like everyone else, he wanted one and bugged his folks until he got one. The plane had a real gas engine that powered the plane for about 5 minutes. It was attached to a long wire that you held as the plane went around and around and around......I'm getting dizzy. Yes, you stood in one spot going around and around until it ran out of fuel...... or you hurled! What fun!!! As best as he can recall, Mr. 58 said he only flew it once. Wonder why?

From Sea to Shining Sea

Shells, Shells, and more Shells... Everywhere.. Here are a few shots from Pottery Barn:

Have you noticed the trend too?  We're trying to keep up in Booth 58... our shells have been big sellers last summer and this year too so far.  It's hard to keep them around! 

 We've recently added a few handmade sea touches.  Look for our starfish garlands, German glittered shells, gift tags with shells attached, some necklaces, vintage mermaid postcards and photos, and also the "shining sea" (glass glittered letters).. my fave right now!
