vintage Card holders

Hi to all of you who love blue, yellow and vintage!

This week we were out driving and saw a sign for a barn sale.  On a whim we decided to go.

I bought a couple of things but my favorite was these round disks.

They are made of the same aluminum that we had drinking glasses
 out of at the lake when I was a little girl.

I knew just what they were and they were only $4. for the set!

They are marked Hold A Pack
Patent applied for Playing Card Holder
MFG by  Thiery, INC.  Indianapolis, IND.
( I live just outside Indy!)

I have tried to find out information and come up with nothing.  

Make sure you visit others showing off their vintage at
Blessings, Debbie

cruise 2013

April of 2013
Some wonderful friends own a condo in Naples, Florida.  
They invited us to visit.  
About 4 weeks before our trip they decided to take advantage of being in Florida and go on a Eastern Caribbean cruise.
We watched the prices until they dropped the week before the cruise then joined them!
We drove from Indiana to Georgia the first day.  I have a cousin there I had not seen in over 20 years.  They invited us to spend the night.  What a wonderful evening of meeting her new husband, and hearing how God brought them together a year after both of them were widowed.  We also got to meet several of the grown children and grands.

Day two we drove to Ft Lauderdale, spent the night and got on our ship, Royal Caribbean, Oasis of the Seas.  Right now, 
The Oasis is still their largest ship but a new ship, 
The Quantum, will be introduced in the Spring of next year.

On the ship there is an area called central park.  You really feel like you are in a park with restraunts on each side.  One of our favorite lunch places is in the park and is a salad cafe.



A busy side street.  We spent the few hours on shore just walking around some of the side streets.
