Calgon Take Me Away

Monday, October 1, 2012

Do you remember that old commercial. Stressed out woman relaxes in a bath filled with Calgon. I don't even remember what Calgon is, but I have definitely been having those days lately.

I'm sure you can relate. You know how it goes. Sister leaves after visit and have to change sheets and do laundry, need to thrift for my shops, have to price everything for my booth, lug it all there, and fluff the booth. Next there was grocery shopping, writing blog, trying to answer emails (way behind on that) and then to top it all off, on Saturday, I woke at 4:30 in the morning with the insane idea of opening another shop on Etsy. By 7:00 I had made a banner and avatar, opened the shop and started listing. (There will be more of that coming up when I get a few more things listed)  I know, maybe I need a little bit more than just some Calgon.

Anywho, if I haven't responded to your wonderful comments yet, never fear, it will happen. 

I bet you are thinking that I forgot all about Shopping on Monday once again. But you would be so wrong, because I am way ahead of you on this one. I even picked out a theme and everything. 

The theme is "You better watch out, you better not cry, 'cause winter time is coming to town" (please feel free to supply your own singing. 

I know fall has just begun, but the way time is flying, winter will be here before you know it.

 Speaking of being overworked. I think they must have overworked my sweet little Granddaughter at the farmer's market yesterday. 

Do you think they make baby Calgon?



  1. Bath & Body Works makes some good Calgon substitutes I think ;-) Hope you and that beautiful baby get some rest and relaxation!

  2. I certainly do remember those commercials. Another Etsy shop? Girl, you are a workaholic! I have to get busy, too, and price some things to take up to the booth tomorrow. Pricing is difficult for me.

  3. Oh yes and I sometimes think 'calgon take me away!!' Another shop? Gosh you are a busy gal!! hugs, Linda

  4. I remember trying Calgon years ago, but it didn't take me anywhere. :)
    That's a precious photos of your sweet little granddaughter!

  5. Good luck Etsy-ing! And at the risk of dating myself, I remember the Calgon commercials too!

  6. Oh, your granddaughter is just so sweet. And I love the chunky knit baby sweater, too.

  7. They do make Calgon for's called Grandma's Arms. ;)

  8. Singing “Oh, what a beautiful baby.”

  9. Thank you for featuring my Vintage Red Sleigh, It looks wonderful with your collection. Wont be too long until the snow flakes begin to fall :)

  10. Your grand is adorable!
    Now I want to soak in a tub.

  11. Ah yes, I remember Calgon. It's bubble bath or something, I recall. Sounds like you've been very busy. At least it's busy with good stuff though. Your granddaughter is so cute sleeping in her stroller! I bet you really enjoy spending time with her.

  12. I used to have a pair of skates just like that!

  13. I know how your grandbaby feels and I didn't go anywhere, just reading it all made me tired.

  14. Oh yes I remember Calgon. My mom always had a box tucked in the linen closet. I don't think I've ever tried it. I wonder if it works...

    Thanks for stopping by Laura. See you on Wednesday!

    Have a great week!

    Did you get up at 4:30 to start the shop?
