List it Tuesday 2/5: I don't even know what to say

photo-139
Nothing better than following up one embarrassing post with another, and here it is from the Listing Aimee in 1986. There is so much wrong with this picture that I don't even know where to start. This comes courtesy of my parents, who found this (and god knows what else) while they were going through my grandmother's many boxes of things my younger sister and I sent to her a generation ago. What Chef Boyardee Ravioli has to do with strawberries, and why turkey is on here twice, and why my sister was sending my grandmother cynical calendar quotes, I just don't know...

Next week's suggested topic: things you use, but not for their intended purpose. Paintbrush as a hair stick, egg carton as a Little People holder, that kind of thing.

Coming up next -- I am assembling (finally) my magic word magnets into packs for the shop, and I'll have a limited number available this week. I'll post them here and also over on my Facebook page.

Have a great day!

Well, they are two different kinds of turkey!

I love peeks in to the past. I was reading my grandmother's diaries and it really is interesting to see the things my cousins and I sent them!

You're a girl who likes her turkey : )
Also, it's not one thing after another...it's the same damn thing over and over, lol!

not sure why your grand parents have those lists, but they look fine to me. i still will have a chef boyardi mini ravioli once in a while.

What Em said! It's fascinating to read old diaries, surf the Library of Congress's collection of daguerreotypes or sit with my mom and go through her old photos.

It was August I couldn't come up with what all the turkey was for, November would have made sense to me with Thanksgiving.

LOL - reading the list makes me want to run to the kitchen and make a salad.
