Contempo Casuals Logo
Contempo was like the Forevs of it's day. (Speaking of Forevs, the one in the Bay Area at this time was a tiny little hole with dirty carpeting in Serramonte Mall, not the glamourously gleaming bohemoth it is today.) I have always kind of liked cheap and trendy stores, and I used to go in there and buy total trash, and in high school we called it Contrampo even though by then they had been re-branded into the super 90's version, Wet Seal, who featured labels like "Blue Asphalt" (hahaha) and 'Evolution: Not Revolution!" Even though it is morally wrong to shop at chain stores like this technically, I still go to Wet Seal and make purchases occasionally. But it's the name "Contempo Casuals" that truly holds a place in my heart, and their blocky black and white label. Through my fashion research, I have also spotted earlier Contempo labels, which have a more palm-tree-ish, late 70's/early 80's Carly Simon vibe. Here are some Contempo inspiration photos:

Favorite Childhood, Play Jacks, Golf Ball, Playing Jacks, Childhood Memories, Jacks Ball, Jacks Loved
How to play Jacks, with many variations. Sitting on the hardwood floor surrounding the jacks. We kept them in a little drawstring cloth bag. Those who were real serious about the game brought their own jacks & ball because they were used to the bounce they would get.
I loved playing jacks. We discovered that the inside of a golf ball made the best ball for playing jacks!
Jacks....during my childhood this was a fun game to play! It's what we did before computers and video games! every recess i loved playing jacks
How to play Jacks - loved this game during recess - best played with golf ball.
I loved playing Jacks, but I used a golf ball instead of the rubber ball.
Playing jacks was one of my favorite childhood games!
Jacks, my favorite game to play alone.
Do you remember the game "Jacks"? Bouncing the ball and collecting the number of Jacks. I have an old set that is wood and then an old metal one - ouch if you got aggressive with the game or if someone forgot to pick all the Jacks up and you stepped on one. Love the pretty colored plastic ones. I've been playing Jacks in my quilting. Trying to bounce the ball high enough to get all the required numbers. But that's not a fun game to play - and I like my FUN. I purposely cut my required numbers down for June. Some new FUN came along with bloggers having quilt alongs, etc... BUT we need to set our limits We need to remember the FUN. I even took Monday completely OFF - finally a day with no rain! And played all day outside in all the glorious flower beds. Slowly enjoying each bed and each flower. And Wednesday I shopped for ME. I needed new shoes - which is a venture. But luckily the second pair was perfect, never have had that kind of luck - even got a pair of sandals. AND, I went to the hairdresser for a wash, cut, and style. YES, I took the time to breath! I found this little quilt top when going thru my UFO's and flimsies (pieced quilt tops) to see what I wanted to finish and to realistically decide they need to move on to another 'home' (Sarah - a box is on the way). I probably did this paper pieced water lily pattern 3-4 yrs. ago. All scraps of blue little florals. I found a scrap piece for the back (blue floral) and enough of a blue floral scrap binding. It was windy and I had trouble getting the quilt to 'stay put'. When I turned to get the camera set and then back, sneaky got into the act - so I let her pose. When I need to 'breath' I find playing in my scraps helps - remembering projects they came from or maybe another quilter donated the fabric and I think of their project. A bit of SQUARED UP this time with 3.5" squares that I pulled from the barrel - added a few fresh reds, but plenty there. Sewing them as 'twosies' right now with more to come. And stitchery relaxes me. This is the second block for the Clover & Violet stitch and quilt along. I opted to use just the single large butterfly and added some playful little button flowers. Love my buttons. My 4th of July piece is coming slowly. Just enjoying a section or just a strand stitched. There will be plenty of time and I can enjoy this little wallhanging thru July. And I am taking more time to work with my cross stitch - my true love. Seeing my Dad's old pencil and color wash piece made me give a try at accomplishing this affect in my new piece. CLOSING THOUGHT Old proverb: 'All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy' Remember to set realistic limits, slow down, don't bounce your ball too high or try to grab too many Jacks. Take time to breath. Remember to have FUN. Sewingly Yours, Sharon
Fortune Teller, Childhood Memories, 90Skid, Elementary School, Cootie Catcher
Paper fortune tellers ruled your destiny... we called these cootie catchers, but I have seen these kind too.
COOTIE CATCHERS 60's: Use to be called Fortune Tellers but began to be popular in the 60's. Noticed both my girls made these with their friends at school in 90's and it provided a lot of entertainment during free time.! A Girl Thing.
Oh the fun we had with this...the Paper Fortune Teller #nostalgia #childhood #memories #retro
paper fortune tellers. OMG we used to do this all the time. We called them cootie catchers.
Origami fortune tellers (did we call these cootie catchers in the 70's?)
We called this a Fortune Teller... some called it a Cootie Catcher.
fortune teller This was so much fun in elementary school.
Paper Fortune Tellers--- 90s kid
You'll all remember these paper fortune tellers from your school days. Place your index fingers and thumbs underneath the 4 segments then flip back & forwards. Here's a reminder of the sequence involved - FT OPERATOR "Pick a colour" CLIENT "Blue" FT OPERATOR "B-L-U-E" FT OPERATOR "Pick a number" CLIENT "Three" FT OPERATOR "1-2-3" FT OPERATOR "Pick another number" CLIENT "Eight" FT OPERATOR lifts flap and reads out what is written underneath the number 8 segment. At primary school in the 60's we usually had silly things written like "You fancy the teacher" or something. In secondary in the 70's it was the same kind of thing...only X-Rated.!!
