Sons of Anarchy Season 5 Starts Tuesday!


I love this show.   Yes, it is based on a Biker Gang, and while many might think that isn't their kind of show, me included, it is truly amazing.  The writer and creator Kurt Sutter does a fantastic job of making these outlaws into perfect anti-heroes.  The writing is done so well that you have a roller coaster of emotions with every show. You laugh, cry, get angry, anxious, feel devastated and hopeful, all within the same episode. In addition to superb writing, the acting is fantastic.  There are some real emmy moments on this show.  It's truly sad that this show isn't the recipient of the industry accolades it deserves.

 The real basis of the story is relationships, friends, family and brotherhood.  If you haven't seen it, check out the first season on Netflix.  If you can get passed the language and violence, the deeper story will grab you and hold on! And if you are into action, you will get plenty of it here! A warning though, each season is only 13 episodes, you have to enjoy every moment. 

Sons of Anarchy airs Tuesdays at 10pm on FX.

It's Oktoberfest Time, let's have a Fondue Party!

In the 1970's Fondue Parties were all the rage.  People bought their own avocado green, mustard yellow, and burnt orange fondue pots with matching forks.  They dipped everything in that yummy melty cheese.  So, of course, the kids had to get in on the action too!

Serendipity Books by Stephen Cosgrove and Robin James

Leo the Lop Poster sold to Stephen Cosgrove!

A while back I found this great poster at a thrift store in Salem, OR.  I kept if for a while, because I just loved these books as a kid.  Leo was probably my favorite. I always wanted a lop eared rabbit named Leo!

Once I finally decided to sell the poster, I sold it on ebay to Stephen Cosgrove himself!  How cool is that?

You can still buy these books at most book stores and online at , the illustrator, Robin James, own site.  They are fun stories that also teach important lessons.  Fantastic character education and great discussion starters with kids.

Coloring and Activity Book.

Is Count Chocula coming back soon?

This is an ad and iron on transfer from a 1979 Magazine.  Woman's Day I think.  I sold it on Ebay a while back, but I wish I would have kept it and ironed on this great image!  I want to be pals with Frankenberry too!

Strawberry Shortcake !!!!!

I Love Everything Strawberry Shortcake!  Vintage mainly, but the new stuff is cute too!

I have a Strawberry Shortcake Room, but I don't let me take over my house.  The room is getting pretty packed!  With that said, I do still buy items I don't have, so let me know if you are selling any Strawberry Shortcake items.

Fisher Price Play Food McDonalds

As a kid I played Drive Thru  (Fast Food Spelling) all of the time.  We didn't have anything fancy like this.  My Grandpa built us a playhouse out of old ply wood.  It had a sliding window in it.  That sliding window was our drive through, and we all fought over who got to be the window server.  That playhouse later turned into a shed and recently came down to make way for a new shiny shed.  The "kids" insisted that the Drive Thru window must be saved because it is an institution.  We cut it out and it is somewhere in the garage. 

As it turned out, we all ended up working in fast food as teenagers.  Definitely not as much fun.

I love, love, love play food and this Fisher Price set is fantastic!  Is there a toy in that happy meal box?  Maybe not, since the box is a toy!

Ms Pac Man Table Top Game

I found one of these Ms Pac Man Table Top Games at a garage sale for $2 years ago.  It's my dream to own a Ms. Pac Man machine, but I guess this is a good place holder for now.  I just love looking up at my little Pac Man Shelf and seeing her sitting there and getting dusty.  Truth is, these aren't so easy to play, and not as much fun as they look.  The handheld video game had a long way to go when these came out.  I'd love to own the entire mini arcade!
