Old is New Again

How many times have you heard this before? 
It happens so many times. 

It happens in fashion.... I wish I had kept my empire-waisted, paisley dresses from the early 70's. Or better yet, how about having my mother's shirtwaist dresses from the 50's? I'd be stylin'!

Old is new again in children's names. Have you noticed? Do you have a favorite 'old fashioned' name... or has someone in your family used a name from the past when naming a child (dog, horse...)?

Old is also new again in friends. I have a 'new' Blog friend who is following me, who just happens to be an 'old' friend - er - maybe I should say, 'a friend of old'?!

Welcome, Bridgit! It is so nice to 'see' you again!

Bridgit currently lives in North Pole, Alaska. (She gets the prize for moving the farthest from SC!) Bridgit is a home-schooling mom. She has begun to assist others in teaching Science through Phoenix Productions and has a blog about that. She is a woman of many talents - including a great voice (which she undoubtedly inherited from her Dad, who I worked with and saw in church in days of yore), fantastic face painting, and she can make just about anything out of balloons! 
(I hope you don't mind that I shared one of your FB pictures!)

I first got to know Bridgit as a professional when she was an interpreter for the deaf for a student in my class. 
I am so glad to have the opportunity to connect with her through the Internet, Blogs and other social media. It is fun to keep tabs on her as one never knows just what she is going to do next!

So, what old thing is new again for you?

  1. Hmmm. . .good question. Most of my old stuff is just old. I guess my saddle is old, but new to me! Even though I have not been using it. . .
    It is nice to be able to get in touch with old friends more easily with social media.

  2. I have several items that belonged to my Grandmother that are still used. Not including furniture, cake/pie holders, deviled egg dish, wooden spoons. Love using them ecspecially when my Mom is here to enjoy it.
