Retro Tuesday: Retro Surprise!

The mailman brought me a small box yesterday...I have a new mailman and he always looks at me like I'm up to no good....like I torture kittens in the basement! Weird mailman...
The shipping was so fast! I could not believe it!
It was a gift from Tracy at www.crazysuburbanmom.com! Yes she's crazy! Crazy nice that is!
I got this adorable vintage tackylicious apron and a key fob (handmade by CSM herself!). How nice is that?
My guess is that the apron is fron the 60's. It comes with a detachable towel! So practical!
Tracy used some of her vintage buttons for the key fob. The vintage key is super cute! I love the color combo that is SO me! Bright green and turquoise buttons! Good enough to eat!
Here's a detail of the pattern. How charming! The girls look so sweet, and that poodle!
Thank you! You made my day and possibly my week! You are very sweet.
Now if you want to experience Tracy's unbeatable sense of humor first hand...Hurry to www.crazysuburbanmom.com for more Retro Tuesday!

It's wonderful to have generous friends with good taste!

This begs the question, "Is it better to give or receive?" Hmm, when it comes to vintage goodies, it's a win win situation!

I had so much fun with my give-away, that I'm going to have to do it again!

I haven't been brave enough to join, the commitment, aaaaagggghhh!

Awwww, thank you! I knew I should have wrapped it pretty as a gift though! Darn. Now my horrid wrapping skills are for all to see.

But I do think that aprons perfect for you. And it's kind of tacky but still got some adorablosity going on! I love the colors and that kitchen towel thing... I don't know. And hey, I decided to call those fobby things - Absolutely Fob-ulous.

Too much?

Glad you liked it!

I came by to answer the question you posed on my blog. Yes, they are personalized chocolate bars. Back in November, I read on someone's blog about a German company called Choccri who were opening in the US soon (Jan 2010). And if you signed on to their blog, you could order and receive 3 free personalized chocolate bars. Check them out at http://www.createmychocolate.com/blog/ to see if it's still running in the US. Good luck!

P.S. I'm tickled that your first two comments are from Mom Wald and CSM. I thought they were the same person. LOL Oui, j'ai koo-koo.
