Remember that song by Sonny & Cher? You might be wondering why I seem to have titles relating to songs lately. Well, Stephen is presently recording/converting some of our old 33 Lps into music files/cds. No, I do not own any Sonny and Cher, but really .... who hasn't heard of the duo? lol
For those of you much too young to remember this form of music recording, well there it is, a vinyl record - 33 Lps. For the curious ones, it's Iggy Pop - Blah, Blah, Blah. Gotta love the title of that album!
One thing I've become aware, as I get older I lose track of time. When asked when a particular song was recorded, I'm usually off by more then a decade! lol Iggy Pop - 1986! Has it really been that long? The Buzzcocks, 1979! I would have probably been able to date that one by less then a decade. Only because I can associate it with a time frame, my boyfriend at the time was Lyndon. I was a closet punk in my early twenties! lol I guess I still am! ;o)
It's neat to be listening to old vinyls! Some, I had forgotten what the "hit song" was. It certainly brings back old memories! Right now I'm listening to Kate Bush - The Kick Inside, circa 1977!
While we're on the subject of "olden days" allow me to show you my ironing board. Thanks Libby for organizing a challenge!
Meet my Old Friend! This ironing board must be old. Unfortunately, I have no clue as to the date it was produced. It's completely made of wood! Metal nuts and bolts hold the pieces together.
A friend of mine, Lori, gave it to me. She had bought a home in Baie D'Urfe in the mid 90's and found this in her basement. She had no use for it, so it went home with me. I love it!
I use layers of Warm & Natural and 2 yards of fabric for the cover. I've changed the cover a few times. All I do is look in my stash for suitable fabric and voila, a new cover!
Notice the floor, it's coming apart! It was suppose to be an industrial floor. So much for that! It's not like I do wild and crazy things in my sewing room! I mean, I just roll from one sewing machine to another and at times, to my lap top. Strangely, the traffic area is fine! We'll be renovating this summer! I cannot wait to plan the layout!
I have another ironing board given to me by my mother. It belonged to my Grandmother and was probably purchased in the early 1950's. It's a standard size and quite sturdy! I don't use it much as I like my Old Friend better!
Thank you for taking the time to visit with me! I hope you are all having a wonderful day! It's still snowing here and has been since yesterday morning. Strangely, very little accumulation, 4 inches so far!
