It's Vintage Thingies Thurday!!!!!


Vintage Thingies Thursday is hosted by the "Apron Queen" at An Apron A Day.
Here is my contributiton this week. This is a salesman's sample dishwasher
from the 50's!! How hilarious is that???? ;o) Can you imagine being a
1950's housewife, opening the door to a salesman with a mini dishwasher strapped
to his chest??!! This model still has the strap intact. And get this.....
It even works!!!!!! The mini dishwasher is mounted on a wooden box with a motor
inside. It's a top loader and the top rack comes out, Just like the full size
version. The slogan on the label reads........
...."The Greatest Helper A Housewife Ever Had".....ROFL!!!!! ;-D
Check out more Vintage Thingies by following the link to "Confessions of An Apron Queen"!

Future Doll in the making! ;-)


Good Friday afternoon! ;-)
It's a beautiful, warm, day here in middle-Georgia!
I had to put "Katherine" aside for a moment. This lady
was pestering me from within my head to be sketched. ROFL!! ;-D
I'm posting her very rough sketch, because I now have
you all to be accountable to. It's my saftey net to ensure
she would not be stashed away and forgotten. So If you don't see
her materialize soon....give me a pinch and a poke! ;-)
You all have a great weekend!!!
