Where Am I?

I’m traveling today, headed back home. I can’t wait to share pictures of where I’ve been the last few days. This photo is a big hint! Can you guess? πŸ™‚

Update: Check out THIS POST to see where I was when this picture was taken.

Under the sink

  1. Christmas story house!!

  2. Sandy S. says

    That would be the Christmas Story house in Cleveland Ohio! I grew up there.

  3. How can anyone look cute NO MATTER WHERE they ARE!!!??? Of course I want to know where you’ve been but mostly, just to know you’ve “been” someplace fun. I’ve been really concerned about you. If you leave out a comma, I think I start to worry. Been following you THAT long.

  4. Hmmm, touring some kind of history thingie? I rednecognize that washing machine. A very similar model nearly took my whole hand. I still have a ridge in my right middle fingernail that splits when it gets any length to it at all. From being twisted by the rollers. Thank goodness Granny was pretty quick on her feet, and ran over and hit the release before it took hand and arm. I’ll just never get around a wringer washing machine again, heheh. Not the business end anyways.

    • Marianne in Mo. says

      My arm did get into ours she I was five! It stopped at my elbow, but I still remember the terror I had, both from the machine and from fright at the wrath of mom I would get. I was too scared to cry for help, but had to, or I would have been there stuck for who knows how long. Guess mom took pity on me, because all I got was a stern talking to!

    • Yikes! I wonder how many folks that happened to before they discontinued that style of machine. Scary!

  5. Hi……i don’t have a clue…but…i LOVE that sink & faucet…

  6. I think I said this before, but you look so young. πŸ™‚ So glad you are able to get to Ohio often.

  7. Mary from Virginia says

    You have been to OHIO to see Court, and stopped off at the Christmas Story house, you lucky girl! I hear the tour is really fun!

    How is your family doing? I hope you post lots of pictures.

  8. Pat Hogge says

    The Smithsonian

    • Good guess, Pat! Someone else mentioned something about Julia Child’s kitchen being there. I need to visit the Smithsonian again…haven’t been there in many years.

  9. I JUST said the same thing to my husband, “she looks so cute (and young!!)” I remember those machines well…ugh, ringer washing machine and boiling water on the stove to fill er up. franki

  10. I think you have been “kidnapped” by the Jolly Green Giant!!!! But you look happy so perhaps we should forget about
    calling 911! Others, more astute, seem to think you are in Cleveland, Ohio. of all places. Enjoy and please share with
    us your adventure.

  11. You are at the Christmas Story house in Cleveland, OH. Only an hour from me!! πŸ™‚

  12. Donnamae says

    I don’t have any idea where you are. But I read the comments…and I’ve never heard of the Christmas House! So please…lots of pictures! Safe travels! πŸ˜‰

  13. Diane Prtt says

    You look as though you’re having some fun in a cute vintage kitchen somewhere in the USA

  14. Gloria in Pgh says

    A Christmas Story! Randy’s hideaway in the kitchen! Love that movie!!

  15. LOL, now what were you doing crouched under the sink? :0) You look adorable. Also, I love the fact that you’re wearing pearls with casual clothing–it’s very European, very stylish.

  16. I knew the pic looked familiar. Never knew there was a actual house….thought it was set scenes. Have to laugh, the mixer looks so familiar. My mom had one Sunbeam I think, then I I heredited it until one day the cord started to smoke. I still have the bowls though.

  17. It looks like the Christmas Story house to me, and I see I’m not the only one with that guess!

  18. Linda Page says

    The Christmas Story house……how wonderful!!! You look just too cute under the sink! This is a precious picture. If I had been there with you, we both would be having a wonderful giggle over this picture. Just adorable!!! I am so glad that you have been to see Court. I hope you have hugged, cuddled, kissed and tickled him to your heart’s content. Can’t wait for you to post pics. I just spent 6 days in Salt Lake City and toured the city. Didn’t tour any houses but I was wishing you were there because there are some awesome 1800’s houses that are just to die for.

  19. Like everyone else, I KNEW you were at Ralphie’s house. I will be looking for the “leg lamp” in your window this coming Christmas!

  20. I didn’t know the Christmas Story House was also the Fountain of Youth!

  21. Carol Neibling says

    When my great neice was about 2 I took care of her and every afternoon she took her blanket and got under my kitchen sink and took her nap. My sink is in the corner, so there was lots of room, The washer looks to be in perfect condition. Sometimes when the overalls and throw rugs are extra dirty, I wish for it again.

  22. LOL… the house from the movie A Christmas Story! You are so tiny! You must have gone to Ohio!!
    Safe travels!

  23. You are so tiny! Cute! My Grandmother had a sink just like that when I was growing up. My Mother in law had a washer just like that and my Mom had the mixer which I had for years and just gave it away. Hope to see more pictures soon. Have Fun!

  24. Yeah, you do look too young to have a grandbaby! *jealous*

  25. Marilyn in Mt. Vernon, Virginia says

    I don’t know, but I do know that I love your strand of pearls! I would wear pearls to bed with nothing else if I could, oh, I have!

  26. “Daddy’s gonna kill Ralphie!” I LOVE that movie!!! http://youtu.be/8xKaXfsfgYg

  27. Susan was driving along a quaint street one day, when she spied a house. A house she just couldn’t resist. She decided to take q quick peek in the windows, but the unlocked door drew her in. What a wonderful house! But then she heard a noise, and quickly hid under the sink. Fortunately, the owner was a huge fan of BNOTP, and not the giant from Jack in the Beanstalk. Susan’s smile was so charming, the owner simply took a picture and now keeps a copy of it on her mantel. The end. πŸ˜€

  28. I haven’t the slightest idea, Susan, but you must be very petite to fit under that sink!

  29. If it’s the house from Christmas Story I can’t wait to read your blog. It’s one of my favorite movies.

  30. SUSAN – You are cordially and lovingly invited to stay here in Columbus! I am 5 minutes from the #1 voted Zoo in America! I WILL HAVE TEA, I WOULD LOVE IT!

    • Oh, I would have loved that Michele! It was a whirlwind trip. One of these days I’m going and I’m going to stay for a while. I was afraid to be gone too long since all my plants on the deck require daily watering in the heat. Thankfully we got rain while I was gone so everything was still alive.

  31. When I saw the picture I immediately said “Ralphie’s House!!!!” I can’t wait to read all about your adventure!!!

  32. pam ~ crumpety cottage says

    Susan, you nut! You look like you’re having a ball! πŸ™‚ I’m so
    envious that you got to see your sweet little (no doubt a LOT
    bigger now) Court and I hope you post pics of him and you.

    Hee … glad you got to see one of your favorite houses from one
    of your favorite movies. πŸ˜€ Drive safe!

  33. Yep. Christmas Story House…but to answer your question…you’re actually sitting under a sink. πŸ˜€
    Did you get plenty of snuggle time with the little sweetie?

  34. In a house from the 1950’s? you look so cute…LOL!

  35. You are in Cleveland, Ohio at the Museum-landmark of the Christmas Story house. I *liked* their page on FB and would love to visit someday! In the meantime I’ll just live vicariously through you!!!

  36. Are you hiding under Julia Child’s kitchen sink in the Smithsonian?

    • Jill, that’s a great guess. I would love to see that…had no idea her kitchen was on display there. I haven’t been there in so many years…I need to go back!

  37. I love this movie. My fave Christmas movie!

  38. Tina Lewis says

    Susan, you are such a cutie.

  39. Rattlebridge Farm says

    So adorable!

  40. I never would have known, but thankfully you have smart readers and I could figure it out from the comments. You look adorable though!

  41. SharonFromMichigan says

    Oh I love it! The pot the Mom used to boil cabbage in is sitting in the sink! I love love love that old Sunbeam mixer. I have one I picked up at an estate sale and sent off for refurbishing and a paint job and I use mine constantly. It brings back lots of memories from my childhood – my Mom used one like that. I do love those old farmhouse sinks. You must post pics of the grandbaby when you get a chance.

  42. Truthfully, my first thought was OMG, she looks so young and cute! My next thought was I could never get up sitting like that.lol Glad that you enjoyed that wonderful trip.
