More Little Long Lost Little Treasures

Do you remember when I showed you my great, colorful vintage Counterpoint cardboard boxes? Well, there was something else I had back then that I didn't find until recently. You can see it here in this picture from another bright bedroom out of a Seventeen magazine, circa 1969:

See? The cute little three-drawer jewelry box there on the bed? (and, by the way - how cute is that coffee pot and cup set?)
Here's the little jewelry box again:
(A little off the subject, but simply because I felt like it, - here is a Cannon ad featuring the same pretty blue and green towels featured in the bedroom photo spread - I love the combination of blue and green and the flowers - I've shown you these before, too!)

So, anyway - I found my own little three-drawer boxes!! You might think I'm silly, but I just LOVE these things from my "childhood"! I was so tickled when I opened the box and found these again:
So, I found not only the orange and yellow one just like the in the magazine, but also a similar blue and yellow one, and even a couple more of the Counterpoint nesting boxes, too! And here you can see the labels:

I LOVE colorful vintage Counterpoint items.
And I'll probably be writing about them again......
(It was three years ago today that I began this blog - my how time flies! "When you're having fun" - and I have been, and I am - and I hope that you will continue to have fun reading it!)

Happy three year anniversary! I had a little three drawer jewelry box too at one time, I had forgotten until I saw yours. I was thinking it was blue and green, but really don't remember. Glad you found your little treasures. Love T

A very Happy 3rd Year Anniversary Gold Country Girls. A great blog! Looking forward to much more to come.

One question, is Penny busy next weekend? Thought maybe she would like to go out for a bite to eat.

Oh... that's right she has no head. Cheap date! It's getting lonely out here in the Desert. LOL :-)

Thanks for all ladies, Richard.

We had those towels growing up! We also had the sheets, but in pink/orange. How we ever got to sleep with all that color, I'll never know, but it brings back memories! Come to think of it, I think my mom might still have them somewhere...
