  1. Carlene, I'm so glad you posted these links. I had missed your wall phone, so I had to go back to read about it. I love it, and I love that it still works! That is just so cool. A friend and I were talking the other day about our teen years when we were connected to the phone cord and had limited mobility while talking. Young people today would not be able to handle that! This was the perfect 30 day project for you. You have so many wonderful vintage treasures, and I loved seeing all of them. laurie

  2. It was a fun series and I really enjoyed it! You shared some interesting things I'd not seen before. Hugs, Linda

  3. Wow! who knew? I don't think I knew you were doing these 'vintage' posts as a 31 day series. I'm pretty new to your blog...and quite frankly...I've begun following so many new (to me) blogs lately... I missed some of your post. So sorry!
    But...I'm glad you have these links all in one place, because I'm coming back to see them ALL! but first...I'm heading to your colored doilies...
    I love doilies. Pat

  4. Whew! You did it! Now for a few days of rest, right? If I know you, you've already got the next marathon planned!

    Thanks for sharing all of your fun collections (and knowledge) with us this month, Carlene!

  5. Thanks for sharing so many great things. It has been fun to see your collections.

  6. A great series Carlene; thanks so much! I learned so much and enjoyed your collections to bits! :)

  7. I love the day by day look at your vintage treasures, and love them all. I have so may things such as my old teaset (not in the box like yours) no brownie camera's and Barbies are long gone...

    I have my mothers collection of little lady heads, I will have to post on them as I was so happy she gave them to me.

    Great post!

  11. What an incredible month of posts, Carlene. I am going to have to go back and revisit several. your home is a treasure trove of wonderful memories, my friend.
    Blessings and thanks for sharing,

  12. omg, i so have that brownie camera you just showed! we were scouring this huuuuge antique mall for old cameras, and they are so expensive now. i guess the sellers know how popular they are.

  13. What a great month of sharing! Love everything that you shared! Have a wonderful weekend! Angie xo

  14. Congratulations for your post-a-thon!
    I have enjoyed your collections a lot.
    Besos, Silvina

  15. You really did a great 31 day Nostalgic series. You really do have some great pieces and collections. I just visited the one on darning, I have two darning pieces and used to darn while I was a child with my Mom. It's funny because I have a few pair of really nice wool socks I want to darn. A great trip down your memory lane. Thanks for sharing your inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!

  16. You did it! And I'm so glad for the wrap up because I realize that I missed the first one and didn't know I had. I also missed the last couple because I was out of town at the end of the month and stayed off the computer. Now I can easily go back and have a little more fun and I won't miss out on a moment of your amazing series. It's been so much fun, especially for a nostalgia lover like myself!
