How has it been 3 months since I blogged?!

on March 12, 2015

Ok, so my plan to blog regularly failed…miserably.  In my defense, I started it right before the holidays.  And then the snow started…and it snowed, and snowed and snowed. You would have thought all those snow days would have made it easier to keep up with blogging.  But not when the snow and ice is insisting on trying to get inside the house, instead of outside where it belongs!  Well, that is a blog for another day.  Let’s just say that blog entry will be followed by lots of pictures of our new walls, ceilings and floors.  *sigh*

On a total different note…I turn 40 this year.  And I am not dealing with it all that well.  I know, I know, 40 is the new 30 but I still am not excited about it.  To try and deal I decided to try and locate items I loved from when I was younger.  I figured it could be a fun project.  I love a good internet search and it is truly AH-MAZ-ING what you can find.

My collection started with this gem that one of my best friends sent to me.

Yup!  That is a bottle of Electric Youth by one Ms. Deborah Gibson.  Just looking at the bottle sent me back to age 13, and it still smells the same!  Now I just need to find a Caboodle to store it in!

One of my great loves in my pre-teen and early teen years was my sticker collection.  Swoon.  We had a store at our local mall called Windsor Button. They had row after row after row of stickers.  And, there was a special sticker club where you could get a “limited edition” sticker each month.  How I loved those stickers.  Now, there is a bit of a disagreement about what happened to my sticker books, and to say it still comes up often when I am with my parents is an understatement.  I am still convinced they will magically appear one day.  As soon as it gets a little warmer you can bet that I am heading up to the attic to search…and yes mom, I will not make a mess!

I decided to try and rebuild as much of my collection as I could find.  Oh, how I love you Etsy.  I found a woman who sells vintage stickers (not sure how crazy I am that something from my childhood is “vintage”)!  And look at what I was able to get!  Oh happy, happy day.  There are smelly stickers (that still smell!) and Oily stickers and fuzzy stickers and Smurfs!  I am in heaven.

I may or may not have also bought a sticker book to go with it. However, I am still searching for one of my original sticker books, like this one.  I missed out on an eBay sale by a month.  So, so sad.

I’ll keep ya posted on what else I am able to find.  Let the hunt begin!

    Wow…I haven’t heard “Windsor Button” in forever. And now I MUST find my smelly stickers. I remember wrapping them up in aluminum foil so the smell would last! I remember having that sticker album, too. I have to find my stuff!! I still have and use my caboodle. Your sis gave it to me for my 12th birthday I believe…purple and pink!!
