Our favorite finds from the internet this past week.

Dot  (AtticandBarnTreasures.com) – When I think of family time I think of vacations – and fun unusual places to stay. If you enjoy glamping (or want to give it a try) you definitely need to read up on Glamping in a Helicopter! Be sure and take pics for us!

JD (ThirdShiftVintage.com) – Black and white are my most favorite colors. Our home is decorated in black and white, and I love it. We have a few black walls, but I really have been wanting to paint our under-cupboards-above-cabinets in the kitchen black. So far, I haven’t been that daring. But after seeing these photos using black paint, I think I am going to take the plunge. What do you think of black walls?

Laurie (NextStageVintage.com) – The iconic Empire State Building changes the light colors on the top to honor different events. Wondering why it’s a particular color? There’s a calendar for that.

Linda (SelectiveSalvage.com) –  I love vintage Christmas ornaments but old ones in good condition are becoming harder to find. That’s why I was thrilled to read about Wendt & Kuhn, a German company that has been producing wooden figurines & music boxes for over a century. The old-fashioned way, by hand. I am now on the hunt to find a chubby wooden angel to add to my Christmas collection. 

Mary Ellen (AuntHattiesAtticVintage.com) –  Get out your knitting needles or crochet hook for a very sweet project! Little Hats, Big Hearts  

Pam (VintageRenude.com) –  I’m not normally one who takes political action. But this crosses all parties and affects us all. Please make your voice heard if you care. https://www.battleforthenet.com

Tina (GirlPickers.com) –  Strolling down the aisles of Facebook one day I stumbled on this article of how globes were made right about the time I was born….give or take a year.

Dot  (AtticandBarnTreasures.com) – If you are as ready as we are for the Thanksgiving feast but get exhausted at the thought of all you need to do on Turkey day then you might like these Make-Ahead Tips to an easier Thanksgiving. 

JD (ThirdShiftVintage.com) – Since I was about 6-years old, I have been fascinated by Egypt and the pyramids. I have an incredible longing to visit the pyramids and I hope one day I can make that trip. This week I read about a new secret void that was discovered in one of the pyramids. My imagination runs wild, thinking just what that void’s purpose might be! What do you think the void is there for?

Linda (SelectiveSalvage.com) –  If you’re a fan of old vinyl, you might find this article interesting. According to House Beautiful, if you own any of these albums, you could be sitting on a gold mine

Mary Ellen (AuntHattiesAtticVintage.com) –   This is a touching story about a woman with a unique skill who helps others. Giving Back with Extreme Couponing

Pam (VintageRenude.com) –  If you think Legos are fun, you need to see these kinetic sculptures made from Legos. This takes play to a whole new level.

Tina (GirlPickers.com) –  I found this list of movies perfect for watching during your Thanksgiving holiday break.  Bonus…they even have food suggestions to go with each movie but if you are like me, you’re already stuffed!  I think I’m going for Grumpy Old Men.  What movie would you choose?

Our favorite finds from the internet this past week.

Dot  (AtticandBarnTreasures.com) –I’m squeaking in one more fun “to do” for Halloween! Let’s scare it up a notch with a homemade spider web! Now that link is definitely DIY and might be above some of our DIY skills so I also saw these spider web instructions which are tons easier and more kid friendly. Happy Halloween everyone! Stay safe and have fun!

Linda (SelectiveSalvage.com) – I’m a fan of both butterflies and moths so was really inspired by the work of Max Alexander who hand knits true-to-life moth sculptures.  Check out the photo of the framed moths at the end of the article and you’ll see why I’m seriously considering taking up knitting. 

Mary Ellen (AuntHattiesAtticVintage.com) –  The Bangles song taught us how to walk like an Egyptian. So how would someone walk like a medieval man or woman? Here’s how! Did Medieval people walk the way we do? Thanks to the posting of author James Gurney in his blog Gurney Journey.

Pam (VintageRenude.com) –  In my opinion Steve Jobs was a brilliant man.  But what made him a success wasn’t just his ability to achieve great thing. According to him there is one thing that separates achievers from dreamers.  Read this short article and see if you agree.

Our favorite finds from the internet this past week.

Dot  (AtticandBarnTreasures.com) – We’re coming up on that spooky time of year and down south it is finally going to cool off enough to enjoy bonfires and hayrides. And of course those bonfires wouldn’t be complete without a scary story or two. You can Make Your Own Ghost story using this link and entering a few words. Gather up those adjectives, verbs and nouns and give it a try!

JD (ThirdShiftVintage.com) – I always thought it was fun to make pop-up cards back in art class in elementary school. Cutting out the paper, designing whatever was going to pop-up, and then gluing everything in place so you could watch someone open your card and be surprised. This week I stumbled on this collection of handmade pop-up cards. They sure aren’t like the ones we made in elementary school!

Laurie (NextStageVintage.com) – I have a love/hate relationship with the Tappan Zee Bridge. Bridges are one of my phobias. But my dad’s office looked out on the Tappan Zee, and when I was crossing it with my mom it meant we were either going to or coming back from visiting her Philadelphia family. Now I have a love/hate relationship with the new bridge. First of all, love it because it’s beautiful and not in danger of bridge failure. But I would describe my feelings about renaming it as lukewarm. Not because I don’t like the guy it’s named for, but because it’s being renamed at all! For me, it is and always will be the Tappan Zee. Read all about the Tappan Zee project, including a video of the last car to cross the span.

Linda (SelectiveSalvage.com) – I am a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright who adopted my home state of Arizona as his winter home. It was a treat to find an article on his unofficial photographer’s quest to document every FLW structure in the world

Mary Ellen (AuntHattiesAtticVintage.com) – It just goes to show you that life really does imitate art if you have an eye for it! Photographer Spends Eternity Waiting For Museum Visitors To Match Artworks And The Result Is Worth The Wait I can’t wait to go to a museum and try this myself.

Pam (VintageRenude.com) –  Like many baby boomers, I grew up watching National Geographic.  I have always been in awe of Jane Goodall. This fascinating woman has changed the way we look at nature and the world around us.  A new documentary about her life and work is being released this week culled from never before seen footage.  The reviews are touting it as one of the best documentaries of the year. Go see Jane the Movie at a theater near you.

Tina (GirlPickers.com) –   You would have to move to the South of France but if you are looking to upgrade your abode, check out the worlds most expensive home.   Oh and just in case you like the furnishings, they are NOT included in the selling price.

Our favorite finds from the internet this past week.

Laurie (NextStageVintage.com) – What are you doing next March? I know what I’m doing. I’ll be going to see the David Bowie is… exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum.

Linda (SelectiveSalvage.com) – The thrill of the hunt is what keeps most collectors going and I certainly fall into that category. Can you imagine how much fun it would be to have an Antiques Roadshow expert confirm your family heirloom really IS a treasure? 

Mary Ellen (Aunt HattiesAtticVintage.com) – It’s getting closer to Halloween and I thought I might enjoy giving you a frisson of fright with A Brief History of the ‘Danse Macabre’ and not only that, here is the music that one might “danse” to! Camille Saint-Saëns – Danse Macabre

Pam (VintageRenude.com) – Environmentalism is no longer just for Hippies. It’s a real issue, and while we all know to recycle our cans and bottles, what about our food.  One of America’s best known chef’s and TV personalities has taken on the food chain with a new movie. Watch Wasted and see not only where your food comes from but where it goes when you leave the table.

Tina (GirlPickers.com) –   Oh to be young again.  I thoroughly enjoyed these throwback photos of some of my favorite bands.  Groovy!
