Vintage Find: Tony The TIger Mug

Hello everyone,
I am excited to show you my weekend thrifting find.
What past time makes you happy?
Give me a dusty overstocked thrift store and I am in heaven.

I did a little shopping today and found this cool mug in mint condition.
Fire King Anchor Hocking TONY the TIGER Coffee Cup just made me smile when I say it.
My guess is it is from the 70’s. I paid .99 for this fun nostalgia find.

My daughter April, and I plan to replace items in my kitchen with retro, vintage items.
So think this cute mug has found a home.
What have you found while out shopping that you couldn’t live without?
I also purchased a couple more picture frames to paint and ad to my collection of white frames.
My total bill was $3.16.

Review: Bolthouse Farms Carrots


Do you know anyone that writes reviews about vegetables?
Now you do, after trying these particular brand of Bolthouse Farms carrots.
Bolthouse Farms carrots meets my high standards for vegetables.
First they harvested at the peak of freshness, taste, color, and crispness.

Most people purchase a bag of carrots, prepare them and never give this vegetable another thought. I am one of those cooks until I noticed that Bolthouse Farms carrots were different. They had a slightly sweet taste and when prepared with my roast after hours of cooking, held together nicely.
Boldhouse Farms has been growing and selling carrots since 1915.

Located in Bakersfield California and I am proud to boast they are U.S.A. grown.
When the carrots are ready, they are harvested cleaned, packaged, and rushed to a store near you.
Bolthouse Farms knows what they are doing with this tried and true method of distribution.
 Visit them online anytime at www.bolthouse.com.

Review: Nivea Touch Of Serenity Moisturizing Body Wash

Review: Nivea Touch Of Serenity Moisturizing Body Wash ****
After several trials and reviews of body washes I finally found this one by Nivea.
I located it at our local grocery chain store H.E.B.
Being a fan of Oil of Olay and Nivea products, thought I would give this new product a try.
The scent was fresh and not overpowering which I found appealing.

Nivea has several scents to choose from and retails less that $4 a bottle.
Great price to the frugal shopper in me.
I do feel that my skin was softer after my shower so the moisturizer in it seems to work well.
I give this new Nivea Body Wash a four out of five stars. Only because I need to use it a few times to be completely sold.
