The Magic Carpet Ride ~ OWOH

Photo


Well I have not been on a ride in years. I think the last time was about twenty years ago, when my daughter persuaded me to go on a big ferris wheel. I did go swim with dolphins for my daughter's 40th and my 80th birthday ( and that was awhile ago :o)~ you could say that a magic broom would be more my speed!)




I wanted to take a chance to get to meet new people and so I am entering this giveaway. It is so nice to see so many people from so many different areas....all on the Internet, which I still have trouble understanding. I still like to just read he paper and watch TV!

This book is from my personal collection. I bought it when my daughter was a little girl so it really is quite old! It was published in 1967, so I guess it really is vintage!

Please leave me a comment abut how you share hints for making ends meet today. You may be able to teach me a thing or two still. The winner will be chosen on February 15th, and you just have to leave a comment and keep your fingers crossed. Thank you, good luck to everyone!

  1. Well count me in...make ends meet? Why just tie a string together and start screaming when you can't get the knot out! Throw it up in the air and go do something else. Great giveaway.

  2. hi! i would love to win this book! my hint, instead of buying a gift, make one yourself. if you aren't the artistic type, even a gift certificate for some service like baby sitting would make a nice gift.

  5. Hi Country Girl! How exciting to swim with dolphins at 80! I'm so inspired!

    To make ends meet, I learned how to grow my own cucumbers and make pickles 2 years ago. I also pickled a mix of home-grown zucchini, bell pepper, onions, and carrots, which is everybody's favorite so far.

  12. Hello! I would love to add this to my budding collection of vintage books! And I vaguely remember reading Heloise's tips on Good Housekeeping magazine (but I'm sure she's not the same one from the book, right?)

    Have a great day!

  18. hello helen and nancy- so glad to meet you. I make ends meet by making most of my gifts. I love making jewelry and so far everyone likes receiving it. I have three young adult boys so I can't give them jewelry but I still try occasionally. I hope you are having as much fun as i am hopping from blog to blog, checking out all these creative people.

  19. Save money by buying second hand clothes and then altering them to my own designs. You can see some of my work on my blog. Please visit. http://jodeaodesign.blogspot.com/

  20. Oh I would LOVE to win this!! cant wait to read them! We are def. re-using (clothes, furniture etc) go thrift shopping, because tehre are some amazing treasure finds over there and what helps me best to keep money in the pocket is just using cash for groceries. Using the debit card usallu goes so fast and easy we always spend way more than knowing what we have left in our wallet. Oh and one last tip. Safe the "small' money and treat yourself once a month on something for just you. It makes you feel special, I promise! xo Mendy

  21. What a lovely book! I love this kind of books :-)
    How we make ends meet?
    We don't eat candy or baked goods anymore. No sugar allowed in the house. We feel a lot better, have saved a lot of money and lost a lot of weight.
    We have a food plan, buy bulk, eat a lot of soups and stews, cook a lot at a time, and eat breakfast. That's a very good way to save some money :-D
    We use a lot of lemons, salt, sand, white vinegar and baking soda in cleaning - that's good for both economy and ecology - and our health too.

  22. Great giveaway! Thanks for having this- please add my name to the hat. And don't forget to pop over to my blog for a chance to win, too! :) #318 on the magic carpet...

    Hmm, hints? I also use second-hand clothes in my creations... I collect all my flower seeds and use them the next year...We've stopped eating out almost entirely and I'm back to good old home-cooking. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I make ends meet by using coupons and buying used clothing. I also eat at home rather then eating out which saves money.

I hope you'll stop by my blog and enter my giveaway as well. So nice to meet you.

  44. Nothing helps one make ends meet easier than giving. I find the tighter I hold onto things, the harder it is to make ends meet. But generosity is cyclical. Recently I gave away one of my absolute FAVORITE dresses--perfect blue, beautifully cut, bought on a trip to San Francisco--but alas, too small. I gave it to a friend who loved it just as much and it fit her PERFECTLY, just when she needed a versatile little dress, too! That was a few weeks ago. Well, just in the past few days, several of my friends have gone through their closets and have found pieces they don't want anymore and have offered them to me. My favorite dress has MORE than been replaced! Similar things have happened to me when I've given away favorite articles of jewelry, bought food for others... It's called "The Law of Sowing and Reaping"--you reap what you so, and the more you sow, the more you reap. Also, you reap the type of thing you sow. I've had friends give away iPods and then been given better iPods in return, or even cars. THAT'S a great way to make ends meet: give what you have and receive better than you asked for! :-)

  51. Heloise?! Is that the lady who wrote the column, "Hints From Heloise" back in the 60s? I used to read that column religiously when I was a child. If my memory serves me correctly, I believe she was in "Good Housekeeping" magazine.

    How to make ends meet? My theory has always been to use all available creative resources to generate extra income. But...the trick is that you have to have fun with it!

    I enjoyed visiting your blog this afternoon!

  52. Hi Helen,

    I'm Robyne from Australia. Great to meet you. I like to make gifts for friends and family to save on buying from the stores, and they usually love to receive something that has been hand made especially for them. I have bookmarked your blog and will come back to visit again. I would love to win your lovely vintage book, and please do come over to my place, it's #70 on the One World One Heart list, have a look around and enter into my gift draw.

    By the Way, I am working my way through the list, I hadn't reached yours yet, but Nancy sent me.

    Have a great day,

    Rob

  53. This is a fabulous giveaway - thanks so much for entering my name in your draw!

    Swimming with the dolphins at 80? Sounds like you could teach us all a few new tricks! Good for you!

    I used to use my hobby to help make ends meet - selling greeting cards I made and teaching stamping classes. After awhile I found my hobby was turning into a chore. Then I furthered my education and was able to get a better job so I can now enjoy my hobby again without the pressure of trying to earn money from it. Not sure what tip is in my story - except maybe to those who are working find out what credentials you need for that promotion you want and go and get them. It's not easy, but how many worthwhile things are?

    Cindy :)

  54. Your blog is lovely, it doesn't look as though you have any trouble with the internet at all. Lovely to meet you, by the way. If your lovely 1967 book is vintage - and I'm a little older than that, that makes me vintage too - not that I mind of course! My tip - share your bathwater with someone else!

    I hope you can come and see my giveaways (if you haven’t already!)

  56. First of all I am a cleaning addict and love Heloise LOL. I have a more modern version - her daughter's I think.

    I would also like to thank you for your kind words. I created the blog for my friend Susan to support her in her battle against cancer. I am fine but she has quite a long road ahead of her. She has a great attitude though and I am confident that she will pull through this.

  91. I've a weakness for old books, helpful hints, and vintage things in general, so of course I'd adore a chance at this book. Your header makes me think of my 92-year old grandmother in PA, with her wood burning stove and impeccable gardens, always busy and always managing to have things under control. She amazes me.

  107. Aw, I bet this is a joy to read... especially since it's vintage. Thank you so much for giving us a chance to win it. :)

    My tips to make ends meet are clipping coupons and shopping at thrift stores.

  113. Lovely book! Hints on making ends meet?hmm... I'd say coupons and sales. If I am going to buy something online, I usually google the name of company and coupon and many times if it's a large company there's a coupon. 10 percent coupons add up. 40 percent are even better!

    Please count me in. Enjoy your magic carpet ride. #276
