A Neat Finding From 1962

Hello my dear friends,

today I would like to share something I found at one of my church sale visits a few weeks ago. I bought it more for sentimental reasons and not for creative purposes in mind. It brings back memories from my childhood and I only spent 25 cents and it was so worth it.

 Have a look at the date ... that is the month and year I was born.
And ... look at the price!! 15 cents only ~ wow!

The magazine even still had it's coupons inside.

I thought this would be fun to maybe try out ?! I remember my Mum doing something similar when I was a child. My husband said when he saw this that those were the old days ..
a can of mushroom soup and dinner was halfway there.
I have more to share you with from my last church sale still but that will be in another post which I will share soon. I have so much to do right now I am not sure where to start. The yard needs tidying up, the work on our basement starting very soon and then my normal chores but I am sure I will get it all sorted (I hope).
 I am also very busy making pink scarves for Vicki's Pink Scarf Project ... my third scarf is finished!!
At last ... it is finished! I loved making this scarf!
Once I get a chance I will have to get this one and the others ready for mailing. I am planning on trying to make a scarf a month hopefully depending what is happening here at home. I will just have to wait and see.
So, my dear friends ... that is all from Todolwen today. It would be nice if you were to visit me here soon again!
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.


  1. I've been making my escalloped potatoes like this for years Karen! Do try! I've layered the potatoes with pork chops or ham. Delicious! One of my husband's most requested meals.
    Your scarf is so pretty. Where did you find the pattern!?

  2. I've not made this particular recipe, but I've got a number of dishes that include a can of Campbell's soup. I started cooking at a very young age (out of necessity) and many recipes that were easy for a 10 yr old used a can of soup. Your scarf is beautiful. Your life sounds very very busy right now...hope you can find time to relax every so often!!!
