Kromex Triple Tier Serving Tray

Christmas is way past being over, my lovely turkey dinner is but a memory, and the Charlie Brown specials have stopped airing on the television... all that's left is the nagging worry that I'm rapidly running out of storage space for all these decorations.

Space Race Card Game

DSCN5428, originally uploaded by Space Commander.

The card game is called "Space Race." There's two sets of #1-11, one for each player. The rest of the deck consists of cards that forfeit a turn. Each player takes a turn from their deck. The first player to collect all planet cards (collecting only in order, starting with card #1) wins.

The game was reissued/repackaged a couple times from the '50s-'60s by Ed-U-Cards in New York.

Meet the Imitation Hymalayan Nanny Goat Rug!

"Wooly Bully" area rug at Lowes, offered in off white and cocoa brown in a variety of dimensions.

OooOOoOo... it's just like walking on yogurt! My bare living room floor has been dying for some T.L.C. like this for far too long...

The search took me through large area rugs, small rugs, dark ones and light. I looked at antique rag rugs, cowhide rugs, faux fur rugs(???) and almost settled on noodle rugs. And then... When I saw this baby on the showroom floor, it was L-O-V-E. I love this area rug. I bought it, bundled her carefully in the red wagon and carried her over the threshold in to her new home.

Mind you, she has one fault to overlook, she tends to shed mini fluffs with traffic. But that's okay. This rug will gently kiss your toes all day long without complaint. Ahhh-hhh...
