Ooh! Yay, me!

I won the Swapatorium caption contest! Sparklers all around!!

That actually reminds me that I wanted to post about Swapatorium. I am so smitten with this site. Anyone who’s ever been near my apartment or had the misfortune of helping me move knows that I have a bit of a thing for ephemera. Swapatorium helps me indulge my jones without actually adding any more stuff to my collection. Every day, she posts another wonderful find from whatever estate sales, thrift stores or flea markets she attends. This recently-posted 1950s space card game is a favorite of mine. (How could you not fall in love with that artwork?) And on my very first visit to the site, she happened to be featuring this fantastic do not disturb sign from an old Milwaukee hotel. You never know what you’ll find at the site — old photos, amateur artwork, ticket stubs, silly pottery… all of the fabulous little finds that are the essence of Americana. It’s all the fun of making a great estate sale find without the hassle of having to get up so bleedin’ early in the morning. My kinda place.

WTG Girl! I hope you win chocolate.

I won a $10 Amazon.com gift certificate. Hmm. I could use that for chocolate, but chocolate gets melty this time of year.

Here’s the competition I was up against. I completely thought Linda would take it.
