adding a little vintage

I'm having so much fun adding little bits and pieces to this give away.  It's a good thing we only have a couple of more days to go or who knows what I might throw in.  Today I've added a couple of sweet vintage pieces to the pile...pyrex and an apron.


I love imagining the women before me who have used these pretty, practical things while showing love to their families.

The cute little red pyrex dish is just the perfect size for some fresh cut fruit and the pretty red polka dot apron brings back memories of some of my favorite television moms.


I thought it might be fun today to name your favorite TV couple from the past when you leave your comment.  I'll start us off...mine weren't actually a married couple but they are the perfect image for vintage family in my mind...Aunt Bea and Andy from the Andy Griffith show.  Their kitchen meals and front porch times just spell down home comfort and family love to me.
Okay, now it's your turn.

Tomorrow I'll be adding something handmade to the mix...

  8. Well I have to agree with you on the Aunt Bea and Andy. She looked so much like my Grandma. We were always sitting on the front porch in the evenings when I lived at home on the farm.
    Well I must say your giveaway is sure looking good, and all those things would fit right into my decor. Thank you again for the chance to win.

  9. Thank you for visiting my blog. I had to stop by myself and see you. Your blog is so welcoming! Congratulations on being in Romantic Homes, how exciting! I loved watching Little House on the Prairie growing up, so I will say Ma & Pa Ingalls. Seemed they could get through anything!

  10. The vintage pyrex dish and polka dot apron make me smile! Oh, Happy Day! I liked the Cunninghams from Happy Days! Many of the scenes were staged in the kitchen. Seems like I remember Marion bringing groceries through the kitchen back door. Those were the days!

  11. Oh you sweet thing you! Look at all those darling goodies! :o) I have to say, Aunt Bea and Andy are very dear to my heart. I grew up watching them and when I hear the theme song, my heart still melts. :o)

  12. Oh Goodness, more goodies and red is one of my favorite colors. Actually the accent color in my kitchen so they will fit right in. There are so many couples in previous comments that I have to agree with them all. With my age I could even go back to the Cleaver's of Leave it to Beavers! Oops! did I admit to being that "old"! Have a great day!

  13. Darren and Samantha of Bewitced were some of my favs. He was bound and determined that she not use her magic and she did it anyway. Loved her spunk.

  14. I actually love Green Acres. I am a city girl (Baltimore and Philadelphia) and moved to Georgia and married a Country gentleman. We often laugh at our differences and our friends call him Oliver...

    "Good bye City Life!!!"

  17. A fridgie!!!!! I have lusted after those for ages, and you are willing to part with one?!

    I like to name our pets after famous couples I like. Since we have a lot of small short lived pets I get to use lots of names.

    My favorites, George and Gracie Burns. They are way before my time, but thanks to modern technology we can watch them now. They were so much fun in front of and audience, and so sweet together.

  18. Definitely Grandpa and Grandma Walton! :)

  24. I love that Pyrex dish! I'm going to choose Ma and Pa Ingalls. Although Pa was the boss, they had to work together as a team to survive on the prairie.

  25. John and Olivia Walton for sure! I watch the show every day. My guilty afternoon pleasure. I love the layout of their home.

    BTW, those little pyrex refrigerator dishes make excellent butter dishes! A cube fits in perfectly!

  29. Welcome to It's All Connected! I'm so glad you joined so I could find you. I love your photos and your philosophy and have joined you so I don't miss a thing! I have a tie for favourite TV couple. In my teens it was Darren and Samantha on Bewitched. When I was a young mom, it was Charles and Caroline Ingalls. I guess I had matured and realized difficulties aren't fixed with a nose twitch. ~ Maureen

    Oh, so many favorite couples from the past to choose from. I'd have to say John and Olivia Walton even though I wasn't a child at the time of their show. But I did love their simple values and where home and family were important.

  36. June and Ward Cleaver - what's not to love about a mom who cooks and cleans in a dress with crinolines and pearls!

  42. This is a fantastic give-away. I've been a Waltons fan for years. I watched all the originals and enjoy the re-runs. So John and Olivia and Grandma and "old fool" Grandpa are tied for favorites.
