FAMILY FUN Vintage Style – YOU SANK MY BATTLESHIP!

You Sank My Battleship

I promise to not start “a thing” of buying vintage games…. or not! Hubby and I stopped in a thrift store this past week and while I was paying for my little treasure he came across this game and said, “remember this?”

At a little over a couple dollars I said let’s get it. Actually we have began to build on our board games to play with the kids on family night and any other night. We’ve been playing the game since we brought it home and enjoying it so much. I was so excited to see that Jala understood the strategy as well as figuring out where my ships were after she hit it the first time. Before realizing she understood the strategy I told her that I was about to kick her butt.

her response…

You’re boasting.

s’cuse me, miss?

Just finished kicking my son’s butt in a game of Battleship. Haha!!! I better watch out because Jala will say I’m boasting.

Do you remember the game of Battleship and or are you still playing it now?

Help Mama Thrift: Recent Vintage Finds

Recently I found some nice vintage beauties to add to my decor. I’m in the process of working on some projects in my kitchen and giving my kitchen an overall vintage feel. When I came across these curtains I grabbed them up for a few bucks.

These cute curtains with cherries will set off the look I’m going for.

We all know my thing for Milk Glass. So when I ran across these two salt and pepper shakers. They were mine.

Last beauty I found was this amber cake plate. I have a thing for vintage cake plates and this amber color will coordinate with my other amber pieces in the fall.

Summer Decorating w/Milk Glass & How I use It To Organize

Hello everyone! Today I have a video to share with you on how I styled my China Cabinet using Milk Glass for the Summer. Many of you know that as of the past couple years I’ve grown a love for Milk Glass. Thankfully, I’ve found out which styles I enjoy. One of the styles I enjoy is the hobnail and the grapevine pattern.

In this video I’m also sharing how I use some other Milk Glass pieces to organize. In every room of my house I use Milk Glass to organize.

Craft space: store markers, washi tape and scrap pieces of craft paper.
Bedroom: Use pieces on top of my nightstand to hold pens, watch, earrings….
Bathroom: I use vases to hold toilet brush and I use a Pyrex bowl to hold the plunger.

Watch below to see more and get ideas. Tell me. Are you a lover of Milk Glass? If so, do you use pieces to organize in your home.

Putting away the Vintage Spice of Life Corningware

The last of fall items being put away.  Those are my Spice of Life vintage Corningware cookware.

These things came in handy this past summer.  I used them to put seeds in from the garden to dry out.

Using a dry erase marker to label the type of seeds. After transplanting into a storage container it easily wiped out.

My little obsession isn’t as bad as I thought 😉 I was able to pack them all up in one tote.

So, until next fall…. These babies will be stored away.  Do you have any cookware obsessions?
