4 Faves – Version 35.0

Posted by lori . 10 Comments


Radio Flyer

Does it get any more “American” than a Radio Flyer wagon?  Pictured is the Little Red Wagon – Model 5; the perfect size for a favorite doll, teddy bear or stuffed animal.  Mine is sitting on my work table, to hold glue, scissors, paint and brushes.  Founded in 1917 in Chicago, Illinois, by Italian immigrant Antonio Pasin, the home office is still located in Chicago.


Gingher Scissors

Gingher makes beautiful cutting implements.  The blades are sharp, the weight is right, and the performance is superb.  Gingher scissors are something you can own for a lifetime.

Fuzzy Fingers

This is a funny little thing that I just love.  I use it to clean my netbook and NOOK, and it’s small enough and inexpensive enough that you can own a few and keep one stashed in several locations.

Scoop Colander

Although I haven’t tossed out my traditional colanders, I often prefer this scoop colander for draining pasta, potatos and vegetables.

    Well I think all of those things are new to us across The Pond! Mum remembers going to The States in 1993 and being completely blown away by an automatic bread maker that her friends had! Deccy x

    Thanks for stopping by! That pull along cart is SO American, most films featuring American children in, nearly always show a shot of one of these!
    Best wishes

  • None of these are familiar to me either! I like the look of the fingers duster. Would come in very handy at our dusty house. Not to mention the unwashed car parked outside that collects leaves and spiderwebs.

  • That wagon sure hasn’t had many changes through the years. Thank you for the trip back in time!

    The Gingher Scissors caught my eye. Im hoping to get into a sewing class for beginers soon and Ive been researching a good pair of cutting shears for fabric and so forth so I will totally google this and take a look!

    We have missed ya but we are finally back to getting to blogs 🙂

    Great post. I have the fuzzy fingers (love it) and my son had a Radio Flyer Wagon. The scissors look great but I really like that scoop colander! Thanks.

    I’ve used a big duster, but I am on a mission to get a finger duster now! I must have one!

    Radio Flyers are awesome, and I didn’t realize they came in such a small size. I might need one for a photo prop!

    Those are 4 good faves! I think that duster thing looks like it would be super fun to play with! But, um, I’m not allowed to use scissors. Kind of unreasonable, if you asks me.

    Wiggles & Wags,

    PeeS. We just saw the “after” of your creative space and it is Most Beautiful!

  • The LOTH has a big blue version of that fuzzy duster thing. When she flies round the living room with it (once in a blue moon) I have to be careful I don’t get fuzzy-dusted. But we’ve never seen that titchy version. It would be really, really useful.

    I like the colander spoon. It’s exactly the same colour (and looks like the same plastic) as our big colander.

    There is a toy shop near us that sells those little red wagons. Wish I was small enough to fit in one.

    Love and licks, Winnie

  • That pasta spoon drainer looks cool! My mom needs to get one
