Old American Vintage Flair…


Did you all have a great Memorial weekend?

My intent was to be here and wish you all a great Memorial Day…but I had a sick husband on my hands.

Yes, Tarzan can get sick once in awhile. Jane does not like it, when Tarzan gets ill. Let’s just say, there was no pounding on his chest this weekend. Sigh…


But, look at this glorious piece of American Vintage flair.

You just don’t see many of these anymore, especially just 2 doors down from your home!

The Ford trunk is just precious.

Don’t you love when you find a little gem like this, especially when you are not even looking for it?


If that was not enough…a few doors down from the vintage car…I ran into this mammoth cactus in bloom!

I just don’t see many people having these anymore in their yards, so what a delight to stubble across this.


The blooms are adorable…

Summer is SOO fun with all of the delight it brings!

I wanted to leave you with one more eye candy for the week.

This video will have you leaning forward with your mouth hanging open and a big smile on your face.

  4. Really cute video, Laurie. πŸ™‚ I do hope that your Tarzan is recovered by now. Love your amazing images. The cactus flower is stunning. It reminds me of that old song, “The Yellow Rose of Texas.”

  5. I hope your hubby is in a much better state, Laurie. It is never fun when someone we love gets ill. Glad to see you are enjoying all these glorious finds though.

    Oh Laurie …that little girl .. brimming with serious talent πŸ™‚

  7. That Ford Model A – wow. She (pardon if that isn’t PC) is in beautiful shape! Spic and span. And yes, that is a huge bunch of prickly stuff…and I hope your husband is on the mend. I hope it was not a cold or a flu – men become wimps.

  8. Amazing Ford and I always find cactuses very fascinating – very well captured, really enjoyed them… πŸ™‚

    Hope to Tarzan has climbed up into the trees again with Jane… πŸ˜‰

  9. Love the old Ford… the prickly pears you can keep… ate too many when young and sat for too long removing spines from skinning the fruit…

  10. Love that vintage trunk. Sorry to hear hubby wasn’t feeling well. Hope he’s doing better. Always fun stumbling upon beautiful blooms πŸ™‚
