It's time for the monthly Vintage Alphabet Party Somehow, I missed April's party for letters E and F. So today we are doing letters G and H.
G stands for German baskets. Here is a small collection that I have.
They really may not be called German baskets, but mine are marked Germany on the bottom.
I am not sure of their purpose besides just being decorative. They might be souvenir items since this blue one is marked Souvenir of Detroit, Michigan. If any one knows more, please comment.
For this party, H will stand for that great radio, television, and movie cowboy hero-Hopalong Cassidy. Here are pictures of Mr. W. from the early , early 1950's all decked out in his Hopalong cowboy suit equipped with his six shooters.
This outfit is the real McCoy. Can you see Hoppy's picture on the front?
What would life be without a Hopalong official knife?
I am so glad you stopped by Applejack Lane today. Visit Melody at Etsy Cottage Style for more participants on Vintage Alphabet Sunday.
Happy Foodie Friday from Applejack Lane. Today, I want to share a never fail pasta salad that has oodles of flavor. I hope you will try it for a great summer side.
Piccolini Pasta Salad
3 cups dry piccolini pasta, cooked according to package directions and drained
1 large onion, chopped
1 10 oz. package frozen baby peas, thawed-I only use about 1/2 bag
1 2.8 oz. bottle Hormel Real Bacon pieces
2/3 cup quality mayonnaise
2/3 cup Ranch dressing
1 cup Kraft Three Cheese Crumbles
1 cup halved grape tomatoes
Layer cooked pasta, onion, peas, and bacon pieces in a bowl.
Mix mayonnaise and Ranch dressing together. Spread over pasta mixture.
Top with cheese crumbles and tomato halves.
Place halves face down to prevent moisture loss.
Cover tightly with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate at least four hours or longer. The flavor gets better with time.
When ready to serve, mix all ingredients gently, coating pasta completely.
It's Tabletop Tuesday time here at Applejack Lane. Let's pop out the door and see the table my grandmother made.
I recently found a gift certificate that was given to me for Mother's Day in 2007 to one of my favorite shops. WOW! How could I have gone this long and not redeemed it? Long, long story. So, I purchased this birdhouse...
Added my Fenton red bird...
Bought a button leafed fern from my friend Dwayne...
And Grandmother's table is complete!.
Would Miss Janice like my color scheme? It's my very favorite!
Good morning from Applejack Lane! It's been a while since I have participated in Tabletop Tuesday since I haven't changed any tabletops. But this weekend, the roosters came out of hiding and settled on the top of the kitchen pie safe.
A colorful platter...
I know, roosters don't lay eggs, but something had to go in the middle...
