One man's trash….I found a home for my retro Animal Crackers box!

And honestly this became a treasure – I’m SO happy!

Keebler - Animal Crackers cookie box - partial uncut box sheet - early 1970's

Jason on Flickr, found my picture of this box that I posted for Pam’s 1st Annual Useless but Wonderful contest. It turns out that this is Jason’s “thing” – Go visit his Flickr page to check out the fabulous collection he has! It’s great if you’re into retro packaging or even art!

Thanks Jason for giving this a great home!

The Buckaroo sounds like exactly our sort of place – not even a website available! Here’s her partial

Meanwhile….The Meltdown!

Ick, blecky dirty snow. We’re sick of it. picture missing I’m posting this mainly as a description of why very little household stuff is going on right now. my passion is our backyard and it’s disgusting. This is also so my Mother can see that we still can’t fully park in front of our house…you can see the curb jutting out at the bottom. Amazing that Denver has never quite worked out how to plow
