It's Time for Another Nostalgic Sunday
Hello Everyone ~
This is a complete repost of a Nostalgic Sunday from August 7, 2011. It's so warm and sunny and beautiful outside, and I'm drinking iced tea with my little sweater on it....so I just had to find this and repost it...plus an additional note at the end!
I think I've mentioned more than once that I love iced tea in the summertime.
No matter what cold drink you sip or guzzle in hot weather, the drinking glass (whether it's really glass or plastic, etc.) tends to get tiny droplets of moisture on the outside.
When I was a little girl, in the 1950s, no kitchen was without very important, priceless items, made just for that little inconvenience.......
Little Terrycloth "Sweaters"!
How many of you remember these? You wouldn't believe how time consuming it was to find a set of these in the twenty-first century! I have a set of four: hot pink, pale pink, bright yellow and pale blue.......How I love drinking my iced tea, or Diet soda, from a glass filled with ice cubes.....using my "little terrycloth sweater"!
P.S. After posting this, I searched online for somewhere to buy these cute little terry cloth covers, and I hit the pay dirt when I wound up on The Vermont Country Store, because they not only have the adorable covers, but also the fabulous, colorful aluminum tumblers of my childhood! These are the drinking glasses we had and used the "sweaters" on!! ☺

* Note: In my original post, I forgot to mention that the "sweaters" we had when I was a young girl didn't fit just around the glass, but they also had bottoms to them, so it also acted as coasters! I haven't found any of those, but I also haven't searched since this post! ....and I know it isn't summer yet, but I love the quote below and it so fits today. *
"Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world." -- Ada Louise Huxtable
