Half a cinnamon roll, some chocolate milk and a little packing up later we all headed up to the main site to grab a much needed coffee. Or in my case a can of coke cola which was the best I'd ever tasted... or rather much needed maybe.
A sad looking empty dance/band tent.
The spaces where once Hot Rods and Hot Cars sat.
The place where Hot Guys and even Hotter Gals hung out ;)
The aftermath that was.
We sat and drunk and laughed at what was a wonderful weekend, with friends old and new. We laughed even louder as we looked over the photographs captured from the last three days. It was all last goodbyes and final packing up time as some of us headed our separate ways.
Funny that this should be my last photograph at The OSW site when it is the welcome sign that everyone sees first.
I already listen to JD McPherson a lot but now with added bonus that it will remind me of my very first OSW as they seem to also love him too!
To sum up my first visit to The A-Bombers Old Style Weekend...
Where have I been the last 16 years??
Of course I have not always been into this lifestyle, let alone thinking that one day I would be into motors. Plus sixteen years is over half of my lifetime. Still, I am happy to be growing up and moving in this direction where life seems so wonderful and glamorous even if it does only last for a long weekend at a time. It's nice to be able to like different things and to know people who all like different things. But nothing beats hanging out with your friends, meeting others along the way who love exactly the same things and appreciating it together!
I discovered these yummy cookies on my last visit and the lovely Malin had a big box of them waiting for me at her home sweet home. A gorgeous goodness of oats partially dipped in chocolate when combined with a cuppa Earl Gray tea is heaven!
Malin and I at the warehouse Flea Markets on my last day.
Notice I'm sporting my Hotrod Hayride tee.
Here's a few of my purchases...
An original 50s wall coat hook/hanger
Another wonderful 7" record rack
A trio of Owls for my sister
Leaving Göteborg and it's powder blue and pink sky behind :(
I did also purchase the most gorgeous two piece original 1940s matching blouse and skirt which I would like to show you when I wear it out and about at some point. It's too good to photograph just on a hanger. You will see that the outfit fits as if it was made for me. Perfect!
Silly me was having so much fun I forgot to buy myself an OSW t-shirt to remember my visit by. I tried to email them but haven't had a response yet. If anyone reading this can help me get one I would much appreciate it!
I leave you with this.
A little fun... a montage of my favourite pics at OSW in a heart shape.
Toodles for now... Alison xx
