Hello, Vixens!!! How are all of you at the start of this new week?
How was your weekend? Did you host, attend or avoid a Superbowl party yesterday? If you missed the game, let me summarize: Party. Chips. Salsa. Snack foods. Expensive new commercials. Congratulations, Broncos 🙂 Better luck next year, Panthers 😦
Or maybe you acknowledged the 52nd anniversary of the Beatles arrival in America, specifically New York. And tomorrow, February 9, marks the same number of years since they first made their historic debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show“. The link contains the entire show, commercials included (I especially loved seeing the now vintage packaging for Pillsbury Flour & All Detergent!!!). What a treat for those of us not around then to have seen history in the making that night!!! To say it changed music, let alone the world FOREVER, is almost an understatement. All hail John, Paul, George & Ringo!!! We are eternally in love and indebted 🙂
Trivia: The Beatles performed five songs that night. What was the first one they sang? No cheating!!! LOL
Speaking of the Beatles, and with Valentine’s Day a week away, I have been listening a lot to my favorite love song ever: Something***. Second place: Can’t Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presley***.
Saturday I was again lost with no estate sales in my area, so I did the next best thing: looked for treasures on Etsy, Ebay and Craigslist. Saw many things I loved, but most were out of my budget range. Sigh.
But I did see this really cute idea on Country Living’s website. I cannot wait to try this. What a great way to use vintage or even newer tins by just adding magnets:
Thought about Valentine’s Day. Forget flowers or jewelry-this is what I want:

Or maybe just this:
Watched “The Time Traveler’s Wife“*** for the 9,237th time. The scene where he sees his mother on the train makes me sob. Each. And. Every. Single. Time. Sigh.
So, how was your weekend?
I do not own the rights to any of the music or videos I am sharing with you, but the starred links*** are my affiliate links. I only share what I love and am grateful for the support 🙂
Have a lovely week!!!
Oh, and “All My Loving” was the first song the Beatles performed on “Ed Sullivan” 🙂
Until next time, fellow Vixens, happy digging!!!
