Before the days of having toys in the cereal box, Kelloggs used to put useful items in their boxes as a way of promotion. Below, is a measuring cup, but there is also the cream and sugar set and all of these are fairly common, several weeks at an auction and one or the other will come across on the china table.
They’re all distinctive because of the rectangular size, as to best fit inside the box of Kellogg’s All-Bran, and there was always a recipe on the box on how to cook with the cereal.
I like vintage things that are useful. I waver between keeping this and using it, or putting it up for sale. In comparison to all of the game CD’s that adorned cereal boxes of the early 2000′s, this measuring cup has stood the test of time.
Just over five weeks until the start of the 2013 World Figure Skating Championships in London Ontario. No ticket for me, I’m happy to watch on tv. Although the joy of seeing an event in person is the ability to see the amazing dresses and costumes that are worn by the athletes.
In the meantime, I’m busy fixing zippers, it’s that time of the year!
A huge trend this summer was high waisted destroyed shorts. For ladies. I saw a different pair this summer. From a guy. But these are destroyed through hard sweaty construction drywalling, and definitely not fashion. When they’re your favourite shorts, I try to keep them going!
Thus I present my finest accomplishment in workwear, the never-say-die-shorts. I kept saying he should really buy a new pair but I was happy to continue repairing them.
Organic multi fold wrap. I’ve been making these for years. They’re a soothing item to make, but I’ve realized that I like photographing them even more because of how to arrange them. This one was a challenge, I’ve never photographed near white before so the more I take pictures, the more I appreciate photography professionals.
I’ll make one for you, pick a colour, $35-$39 depending on width.
Remember last year when I put poodles on to the old computer keyboard dresses and made them Chubby Checkers? I love our beginner team, they’re so cute. This year we recycled the dresses into Africa, with fabric overlays and amazing felt flowers I cut out (400 pieces) but were hand glittered and sewn by volunteers. (thank you!) Looks amazing and congrats on your medal!
For a Canadian team member: Baton leotard, multi layered, flesh mesh cutout and fully lined with invisible zipper. Simple and complicated all at the same time!
A classic dance dress in a long torso.
So when someone says they want a mushroom head and a Luigi, what do you think? Super Mario of course.Here was a last minute frenzy of creativity and I rocked it out of the park!!
Hats, overalls and green shirt all made for a special event. I would have made a red shirt too but the boy assured me he already had one.
Oh yes, I made the mustaches too!
