It is hard to pick just one favourite from the remember when sheets but I have to go with the Ice Cream Van because I can remember Mr Whippy. They had an ice cream factory down our street too.

My favourite is the ice cream van as it takes me back to being a kiddie on tip toes passing money to the ice cream man wishing that I had enough pennies for a 99.

Hi Karen,

Your cards are lovely Karen, it was a pleasure looking through them.
Best wishes,

Hi Karen, thank you for giving us a chance to own some of these gorgeous sheets. My favorite vehicle has to be the red tractor, because the man who is looking at it looks soo much like my husband that when I made the card for his birthday it made his sister laugh till tears ran down her face

Bev said...

Marge said...

Hi Karen,
I came from Jak's blog & the tractor is what I recall. I'm a farm girl, so now you know why I recall that when I "remember when"!

Betz61 said...

I love the trains and the ice cream truck sure brings back memories I can here the song playing now but my very very favorite is of the tractor as it reminds me of my son in law Jeff and his old tractor of grandpas that he restored and used to cut the lawn with my granddaughter Madeline in his lap.

Hi Karen, my favourite is the ice cream van. It reminds me of my late uncle who used to own one when I was a child. Whenever I went to stay for a holiday with him and his family he would take me with him to do the rounds at least once every visit. How my maths would improve during these school holidays.

The train is by far my most favourite. My son has loved trains ever since I can remember and was spelling the all the trains names from Thomas when he was only 3.

The one that sticks in my mind is the train trolley with a man leaning on it I grew up in a mining village and used to see the miners comming home from work so dirty and their eyes there was always a look in their eyes but i cannot put words to it they were so tired after a shift and always thanked my lucky stars that my dad didnot have to go under ground sadly most of the miners we knew have now passed away Sue A

This may seem silly, but since a vehicle is defined as any means in or by which someone travels or something is carried or conveyed; I think I can get away with telling you that the vehicle that evokes the strongest memory is the shopping "cart" that the elderly lady has next to her.

I am one of 7 children, and was often lost in the crowd. However, we lived next door to a wonderful, boisterous, loving, Italian family that had taken me under its wing.

The Nona or grandmother, was a beautiful woman, very elegant - she wore the most beautiful pearl necklace every day - and very kind. She loved to laugh, was very wise and smelled like flowers.

Once or twice a week she would head out to pick up a few things at a nearby shopping centre. This is about 50 years ago, so there were no malls. If I was lucky enough to be outside at the right time, she would ask me to accompany her because I was such "a wonderful helper".

I had the priviledge of pulling or sometimes pushing the cart. My favorite part was watching her argue with the vendors about the freshness of their product, watching the butcher trip over himself to please her, and then, being handed a brown paper wrapped package and very gently placing it in the cart - just so - so nothing would be "bruised".

She would constantly praise me, what a good girl I was, what an angel, how would she have managed without me, and as we walked she would impart her wisdom upon me through stories. She taught me to speak Italian, to cook, and more especially how to choose the right man for a husband - I followed her advice the second time and she was absolutely right.

Nona is long gone, but her memory lives forever in my heart.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity of reliving some of the sweetest moments in my life.

Sonja said...

Hi Karen,
For me it has to be the tram - memories from childhood going on it to visiting grandparents on Sundays and later on going all by myself.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Hi Karen

I love the Flippin' series. My favourite has to be the ice cream van. Every time I see one it reminds me of the sketch that Morecambe and Wise did. Eric heard an emergency vehicle go past with the siren on, looked out of the window and said, "He's never going to sell much ice cream going at that speed!" Lovely memories of two great comedians.

Love Joan xx

Thank you for the lovely prize and the opportunity to win it. The big red tractor, reminds me of happy days when I was younger and used to go and help on my cousins farm, he had a big read tractor and he used to let me ride on it with him as a treat. He had four brothers and they were like brothers to me, as I didnt have any brothers or sisters myself. Just loved those days., especially if the sun was shining. Also we used to go and help with the hop picking, real family outings they were and they had a big red tractor which we used to sit on and ride down the fields.,
oh those happy days.
I dont live far from you in The Last of the Summer Wine County.

Busy Lizzy said...

Mine has to be the mine cart. although it probably isnt tecnically a vehicle! It always reminds me of Cornwall as it is famous for it's tin mines and that in turn reminds me of my partner who is Cornish and whom I love dearly.

ajdavies59 said...

Hi Karen was a wonderful chance to win such a fantastic range. My vehicle would have to be the tram. I love seeing them at Blackpool, especially when you watch children's faces seeing them and going on them for the first time. such a grand sight of times gone by.
God bless

Linda Peterson said...

I remember the ice cream van that would come down the street. Once in awhile we actually could buy something. That would be my favorite.

Hi Karen, I think the old tram is my favourite, as I can remember riding on one with my dad when I was a little girl, and as Im now nearly 67 and my poor dad has been gone 30 years I do so miss him. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxx

Hi Karen, First time I've seen your blog and I'm very impressed!! Great prize again. I love the Mr. Whippy Ice Cream Van because it reminds me of the good old days when ice cream vans actually came round our streets!! No longer and it's such a shame!! Big supermarkets have a lot to answer for!! Karen Pulman

Devonmaid said...

Hi Karen thanks for the chance of winning these sheets. I just love the ice cream van.

Karen W said...

For me it has to be the ice cream van, we had one that came around nightly which sold sweets and cigarettes too, as the oldest I was resonsible for looking out for "Fred" and his van, fond memories of my childhood days.
Hugs Karen x

I particularly remember the old tractor as my grandson loves tractors. His other grandad lives on a smallholding and of course there is a tractor although not quite as old!!

Marilyn said...

Hi Karen,

My favourite is the car in the garage sheet, it so reminds me of the car my dad had.



banoffie said...

Hi Karen, I love the steam train but my favourite is the icecream van as it reminds me of when I was a little girl running out with my dish so I could have devonshire icecream with lots of hundreds and thousands made of chocolate on top of the icecream followed by devonshire clotted cream. Heaven if only we could turn the clock back but then we wouldn't have computers and I wouldn't be making cards or finding new friends x

veronica said...

the ice cream van - i adored Mr Whippy icecream - still do! OH would go for the train though.....

Crafty_Kitten said...

My fave has to be the ice cream van.
I remember waiting to hear the tune he used to play and excitedly running along to the van to get an ice cream, standing on tiptoe to reach the man's hand to give him my pennies and get my wonderful icecream so I could have that first lick................. mmmm the taste! It was heavenly, especially when he used to give us a couple of squirts of sauce! My favourite was a squirt of chocolate and a squirt of lime...... yummy!!
We didn't get an ice cream very often, mainly on dad's payday as an extra treat. But the memories are just as good as the ice cream was.

Mags said...

Has to be the tractor for me too - memories of harvest time on my uncle's farm when I was a kid, and again as a teenager working on his friend's farm in Devon. oooo milk straight from the churn for breakfast after we had finished milking! and a farmhouse Christmas one year, when my mum was in hospital. Fantastic magical memories!

Hiya Karen
My fave would be the ice-cream van. Reminds me of playing out in the street on a warm summers evening, hearing the tinkly chimes, and running in to Mum to ask if I can have one, and loving it when she said "Yes". The sheer pleasure of it!!

Kimbo said...

Hi! I love the tram in the Tram Shop. It is so reminescent of Toronto's streetcars.

Pearly said...

Hi there Karen
I have to say my all time favorite has to be the ice cream van - mainly because my youngest son was a caeliac and had dairy allergies so wasnt allowed ice cream or the cornet - so when the van came he would stand on tip toes and sniff - the look on face still makes me smile!!
What a fantastic prize!

Kim. said...

Thanks for the chance to join in. For me it would have to be the tractor as when I was young we had a holiday home right in the heart of the countryside and everytime we were there we go to the end of the back garden and wait for the farmer to come across the fields and give us a ride on his tractor. Never once did he tell us he was too busy I often wonder if the same would happen now? mind you they would be strung up on health and safety issues now lol.

PatsyB said...

What a great blog candy you are offering! Like Christmas in September!! I love the old car (looks like a Model T) because I have a picture of my grandfather standing in front of one. He is just proud as a peacock! Seems he came "calling" for my grandmother in it and she refused to ride in it! They still managed to get together but she would laugh when she told the story years later. I guess you really do "Remember When" if you look at these sets!

ursula in RSA said...

I think the old car. It takes me back to when I was a child. We didn't have a car but knew someone who did and it reminds me of his car. We used to go to visit a farm with lots of sheep and I have a photo of me at the car holding a lamb. Some yaers ago that was.

Hi Karen,
Thank you for offering the chance to win this 'flippin great' prize. So generous of you!
My favourite has to be the tram, bringing back loads of childhood memories of trips out and about with my Mum & Dad. The really special treat was to watch the conductor 'flippin' all the seats around at the terminus ready for the return journey and sometimes being allowed to help!
Thanks again
Ann xxxx

Carol in Cyprus said...

Hi Karen
My favourite is the tram. When I was small they used to run past my house. I called them "zeelaboogins" it must have been something to do with the noise they made!

Craftingdiva said...

For me it has to be the train,It meant my summer had started. The first Saturday of the school hollidays I would be put on the train at Wolverhampton to go to Exeter St Davids. My uncle was footplate man and he would always make my breakfast on a shovel, My Nan and Grandad would collect me to go to their farm for the summer.Takes me back over 50 years.
regards Sue
