By RetroRuth We recently finished up a crazy-long road trip vacation around Lake Michigan that was a ton of fun. Well, it was mostly fun. A long road trip with a toddler is always a challenge, but Alex ended up being pretty good overall. It helped that we built in…

By RetroRuth We took a mini-vacation a few weeks ago to the lakeside town of Tawas City, Michigan! We love this town because it has been a vacation destination for a long time, and the vintage/retro vibe is very well-preserved. If you saw my recent post on Marion’s Dairy Bar,…

By RetroRuth This week Vintage Snappy Saturday is actually “Retro” Snappy Saturday! This is a shot of Hot Dish in the Minneapolis/St.Paul Airport. This adorable place sells – you guessed it – casseroles! How retro-wonderful is that? Sadly, we didn’t have time to stop and eat (it was located outside…

By Tom Yup, Ruth called in a favor and so I am writing this one today.  So be forewarned: you will not get writing that snaps crackles and pops here.  I am only properly trained in two of the three “R’s”.  But I digress.  So anyhoo, after our spring road…

By RetroRuth Here is the second part of the Graceland tour, as was promised last week!  The Jungle Room! The famous “three TV” room. Although, how I missed getting a shot of all three TV’s at the same time is baffling. What was I thinking? I will have to put…

By RetroRuth So…yeah. I have to admit that I was never a huge Elvis fan. I mean, I like his music and I won’t turn the channel if one of his movies comes on, but I’d never gone out of my way to find things featuring him, or even buy…

By RetroRuth I love road trips. Love ‘em. There is nothing more fun that getting out of the car in a place where you have never been before and finding something completely unexpected and awesome. Like an amazing antique store. Or a gorgeous sunset. Or a giant fiberglass chicken hawking…
