Retro Tuesday: Cool Cooler

A beautiful Retro Tuesday to you! Needless to say I slept like a baby!

I was so tired I didn't watch all of SYTYCD Canada, let's face it there is just so much I can take of Jean-Marc Genereux's tirades...Give it up Canada! You are a VID (very insane dancer) I swear he says that 10-15 times a show!

Now for the moment you've all been waiting for.....The giveaway results....Henry the Xmas Elf was tied up so I turned to the firm of Pinotte,Boubou,Yoda and Bob to monitor the draw...

AND THE WINNER IS.....


Congratulations Linda! WOOHOO! I'll be sending some sweet stuff your way!

Ok now for Retro Tuesday! Like I mentionned in the previous post, I got myself  a B-Day gift, I always do.This year it's this cutie:

 

When I saw it on Etsy my knees got weak! It was so sweet and vintage and remeinded me of a suitcase I had when I was 5 years old. So I bought the bag, I figured I could use it on my upcoming trip to Maine.
I received it yesterday and it's not really a bag...It's a cooler!

Funny how the Etsy store owner never mentionned it!
It was manufactured by Nappe-Smith and the tag says a Thermo-Keep product by Nappy, Farmingdale N.J, insulated with fiberglass. I'm gueesing by the pattern, it's from the 60's.

It looks barely used, the vinyl is not cracked and there are no stains on it; it even came with the key! It will hold beverages beautifully!

 
Check out that beautiful pattern! In the tones of blue and green I love so much!

Now no post is completed without some SWEET Pyrex love!

 

This is yesterday's cuke harvest. And I had a big bag in the fridge! So I made some cream of cucumbers. It doesn't really tastes of cucmbers and it's a great way to use them instead of pickles.

I might post the recipe tomorrow (I have to translate it....:( )

Ok bye for now folks! I'm gobbling up breakfast then hopping to the farm stand and later to the you know what....

Be sure to visit my pal who I hope is on the mend and not coughing up a lung, the very funny and crazy Tracy over at Crazy Suburban Mom for more Retro Tuesday fun!

Whooo Hooo!! I Won? I Won? Yippee! I can't wait for some wonderful goodies from you!

I love that bag and even though it's a cooler it is very 60's and stylish. So Happy Birthday to you. Can't wait to hear what the ahem...lady....says about your leaving. :)

Awesome cucumbers! My cukes started off really well but then the cucumber beetles decimated them. Boohoo! I was planning on lots of tzatziki.

Your bag is cute. I'd say 60's too.

Don't you love what people leave out? I once bought a sconce on ebay that was 'new' it was such a mess. I complained, and was really angry. This was so not new. The seller said, well its new to me.

Um, new doesnt mean, new to you, you fool.

ugh
