I remember rainy days, Grandma's house, and homemade warm custard that makes you feel all snugly inside.  The warm vanilla smell that lures you into overindulgence and smooth, velvety heaven.

Here's a simple recipe to make since I just made you crave homemade custard!.....

Ingredients:
2 cups milk
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1 dash vanilla extract
1 pinch ground nutmeg (optional)

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2. Whisk milk, eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla together in a bowl until completely combined. Pour egg mixture into 6 custard cups; sprinkle tops with nutmeg. Place cups in a baking pan and fill pan with enough hot water to reach halfway up the sides of the custard cups.
3. Bake in the preheated oven until custards are set, about 1 hour. Cool completely.

And here's some vintage Fire King custard cups to make your homemade custard extra special!

Whose image was returned in this adorable little hand/purse mirror?  If only antique mirrors could talk!

Remember Betty from the Flintstones? Her middle name was Jean. All the Flintstones characters were modeled after the characters on the Honeymooners television series.

I think she would like this necklace I made......

Did you know that Depression Glass wasn't only made during the depression? It started in the mid 1920's and continued into the 1950's. It was primarily sold in "five and dime" stores and as promotional give-aways. Green Depression Glass is most popular to collect!

I remember women in white jump suits with wide red vinyl belts and bold Trifari brooches that coordinated. They always looked so patriotic to me!

Smoking used to be cool and fashionable for women back in the day. Many accessories were manufactured to sustain the allure and contribute to this phenomenon.  

Now, we know better.  Not so cool and fashionable anymore.  But, those vintage and antique accessories still are!  Not to use, but to collect. Vintage tobacciana  enthusiasts are sure to dig this one:

Vintage mod is all the rage now!  I have even seen some young "hipsters" sporting costume jewelry from the 50's!  I had to wait patiently while a group of them pawed through the bin at my local thrift shop!  I'd much rather see that than the next generation buying cr*p from Wally-World!  Maybe there is hope after all.....

What makes the sad clowns so sad in pictures? Especially the children. I always wondered why artists often depicted clowns as sad, especially Ozz Franca. My heart breaks for the sad children....
