Good Saturday morning.  How about a trip down memory lane. Do you recognize any of these or did you use any of them?

A friend sent these to me, and at first I thought, what are they, but as I looked on I realized that most, if not all, were in my youth - growing up time.  Bet some of them were in your younger days too!

The track team that Aryn is on, won again yesterday at sub-sectional, and now they qualify to go to the state competition.

(Aryn is second from right)

Have a wonderful weekend.


  1. After I made this blog, I realized I had already put pictures of track team, etc. Forgive.

  2. Congrats to your grandaughter. Yep, I remember some of those: Toni, Pixie Sticks, Dippity Do, Pins, the stockings, the Jukebox, I grew up in alot of those..well..the jukebox was in the 50's right? But, I remember going to restaurants as a kid. Blessings

  3. Good morning!
    And the cough drops!!!
    I remember having a box like that when I was young....
    We could take them to school, but we had to leave them on top of our desks. In the corner. Funny the things you remember, isn't it? Have a cozy day. Chilly here!

  4. I am a baby boomer, born in 1956, so these are definitely things I remember. Thank you so much for this wonderful trip down memory lane!

  5. I am always happy to see photos of your amazing grandchildren! Congratulations to the girls! As for the walk down memory lane - yes indeed. My mom had Evening in Paris perfume and I used hers now and then. Her favorite was Chanel #5, so she didn't mind me using the 'toilet water'...remember THAT name?! LOL I never wore hose with seams, but remember my mom and grandma wearing them. The rest - very familiar! Love your background and heading today! You always find the most creative and colorful backgrounds to use! Have a great weekend!

  6. I remember a lot of them - Toni, diaper pins, Dippity Do and Pixie Sticks. That was fun!

  7. The only one I don't recognize is the very top perfume but I can't read the print. Those where fun days.
    I always enjoy your postings of the "grands". Aryn sure is a winner. She's going to go far in life.
    God bless. ~:)

  8. Congratulations to your Granddaughter. Sounds like she's doing great.

    As for the items you showed, at my age, I know them all. Have even given myself a few home perms as a teenager, they had one that you used Bobbie pins instead of curlers. That was the easiest for me to do. But the smell was horrible.

    Have a great Sunday, sun is trying to shine here, which is nice.

  9. Congratulations Aryn. She always amazes me. She's such a great athlete. The trip down memory lane --- I remember every one of them. Some I wish we could still buy. (and I don't mean the diaper pins -- hahaha)
    Hope you've had a great weekend.
