Lee Radziwill, Jackie Kennedy’s Little Sister, Dies At Age 85

We are where nostalgia lives

It has been reported that Lee Radziwill, the younger sister of former first lady Jackie Kennedy, has died at the age of 85 just a few days ago. There is no known cause of death at this point in time.

Radziwill’s daughter, Anna Christina Radziwill, was the first to confirm her mother’s death this past Saturday. Radziwill is best-remembered as a former princess and an interior decorator, besides being Jackie O’s sister.

Born Caroline Lee Bouvier on March 3rd, 1933, she led a pretty normal early life, attending elementary school in Washington, D.C., high school in Farmington, CT, and went onto undergraduate studies at Sarah Lawrence College. By the 1960s, she was attempting to make a career for herself out of acting.

She did star in the 1967 film The Philadelphia Story, but her acting career was relatively unsuccessful. Following the short-lived pursual of an acting career, Radziwill took up interior design, and a lot of it was for the wealthy. She was even in with The Rolling Stones, who would then invite her on their 1972 tour of North America.

Associated Press

Radziwill was married three times and it was through her second husband that she achieved princess status. She married Polish aristocrat Prince Stanisław Albrecht Radziwiłł in 1959, and through that marriage became known as Her Serene Highness Princess Lee Radziwiłł. They had two children together, Anthony and Christina, before divorcing in 1974.

Besides being a short-lived actress, interior decorator, and former princess, Radziwill was also contracted to author and write books/memoirs. Some of them she never actually managed to finish. However, a book she wrote called Happy Times was released in 2001, detailing the simpler times and memories she shared with her sister.

Radziwill had been dealing with the assumption all her life that she was ‘living in her sister’s shadow.’ Of course, it’s hard not to feel that way when your sister is the First Lady (at the time), but in a 2013 interview, Radziwill stated that she has no hard feelings and just try to live through the gossip.

“In some funny way, I’m lucky that there was so much more interest in my sister. At times it was annoying, at times funny. Perhaps the most depressing part was that whatever I did, or tried to do, got disproportionate coverage purely because of Jackie being my sister. But you learn to deal with scrutiny, even the lies, as long as it’s not malicious.”

We are where nostalgia lives

Do you have any old Tupperware lying around? If you do, you must know about the new market for vintage Tupperware. Tupperware sets are selling for hundreds of dollars on sites like eBay and Etsy. So, if you have some vintage Tupperware in your home, you may want to look into how much it is worth these days. You could make some extra cash. Who doesn’t want that?

It seems as though select sets like Tupperware’s Wonderlier line or Servalier line could sell for several hundred dollars. Many other vintage Tupperware pieces sell online for around $2 to $20 each. The price you can get depends on the quality and condition of each piece too. Generally, older pieces sell the best because they may be rare.

Some people are even starting vintage Tupperware shops online. They scour garage sales, estates sales, thrift shops, and other places for old Tupperware that they could flip for a profit. One seller says that the best seller of old Tupperware is the Crystal color. Tupperware actually still sells replacement lids in that exact shade. Did you know that?

There is another line of Tupperware products that are highly popular too. It is the Millionaire line which includes pink, green, and blue pieces. They still look so cool! Check your attic or basement for old Tupperware pieces and look up how much they are worth. If you regularly visit thrift shops or garage sales, make sure to grab some Tupperware if you find it. You could actually make a decent profit from selling them.

Look For Your Vintage Pyrex Sets Too

#tbt to this pretty stack of turquoise pyrex. These dishes are still in the keep pile but there will be plenty of other pretty turquoise and blue pyrex and Cathrineholm available for sale next Thursday at 7pm. Go one post back for details! 💙💙💙💙

Right now, on eBay there are over 19,000 listings for “vintage Tupperware” and it is the #1 trending search. $2 to $20 might not seem like a lot, but if your mom was anything like ours, she had anywhere between 10 to 30 pieces of Tupperware and they were all in pristine condition. That can add up quick! One person managed to snag $800 for their vintage glass Tupperware set.

Remember that vintage Pyrex pieces are worth cash too. The great thing about Pyrex and Tupperware is that they are made to last, especially older pieces. You can still have high quality, good condition pieces from decades ago.

#TQITB 🤗 T is for Tupperware! The quest is the best when there is an ongoing search for the beautiful, elegant, pastel Tupperware pieces of our past. Sure they are useful. Probably one of the most useful kitchen products ever made. But to me they are each a work of art in style, simplicity, and color. They made midcentury living easier for everyone then, and a collection for this midcentury girl now. 😉💙💚💛🧡💗Swipe to see close-ups. . #vintagetupperware #tupperware #vintagekitchenware #midcenturykitchenware #pinkandhank #etsyvintageshop #etsyvintagestyle #etsyvintagestore

If you are unsure if vintage Tupperware is legitimate, check out a mold number (two-part number) stamped on the product. It should also say Tupperware somewhere on the piece. This is how you know it is authentic. Do you have any old Tupperware pieces or sets lying around? Do you think they are worth money? Or could you never give them up?

Tell me I'm not the only one who still uses vintage Tupperware? 😁 It's been a while since I listed any, and I had no idea I'd managed to pile up this many pieces! I'm in a bit of a decluttering mood, so I can definitely make some deals here. 😉 If you want to provide a home for any of these cuties, just let me know! ______________________ Thisattic.etsy.com

Elvira Revealed She May Do A ‘Mistress Of The Dark’ Sequel

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

Cassandra Peterson is better known as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. She became famous after hosting Elvira’s Movie Macabre, where she hosted a special that showed horror movies each week. She dresses dark and vampy, but her voice is more valley girl and she is hilarious.

30 years since her first film debuted, Cassandra is definitely considering doing a sequel to Mistress of the Dark. During a recent Q&A on Instagram, many fans were asking about a sequel. She admitted that many fans ask about a sequel, so she is giving it some serious thought!

Do You Think She Should Do An Elvira Sequel?

Cassandra debuted the character in the early 1980s as a horror host who popped in with comedy bits. She became an icon in pop culture for her humor and her sex appeal, often wearing skimpy outfits. Elvira: Mistress of the Dark hit theaters in 1988. It was a comedy about Elvira inheriting an old mansion in a conservative town. Of course, the residents didn’t approve of Elvira. There was also a movie in 2001 called Elvira’s Haunted Hills, which was a prequel. We would love to see a sequel!

Fans also asked Cassandra if Elvira’s Movie Macabre would ever be available on Netflix. She said she was working on it! We hope it does get to Netflix so we can watch it again. She also confirmed that she is trying to sell a script she wrote about Elvira to Netflix or Hulu.

Cassandra Has Been Indecisive About The Idea

While she seems open to the idea of a sequel, Cassandra has admitted at past conventions that the Elvira movies have become cult classics. She said it would seem weird to make another one now. She worries that fans would compare the new movie to the classic and wouldn’t like it as much.

She compared it to Pee-Wee Herman movies. Pee-Wee Herman recently got a special on Netflix and many people compared it to the first one and criticized it. She doesn’t want that to happen to Elvira. No matter what she decides, we stand by Cassandra and still love Elvira!

Payless Files For Bankruptcy And Will Close All Stores

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

Say it isn’t so! Another retailer is set to close all their stores as they file for bankruptcy. Lately, the term “bankruptcy” seems to be a common phrase when it comes to retail stores. Toys “R” Us was the biggest bankruptcy showdown, as they went completely out of business and closed all U.S. stores by the end of 2018.

Stores like Sears, Gymboree, and more have been filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy as they drown in millions of dollars of debt and being unable to stay afloat with the competition from other retailers and online. The Payless company has yet to comment with an official statement.

AP Photo/Matt Rourke

Payless currently has 3,600 stores worldwide and has employed more than 18,000 associates. With this being said, there’s no telling if any of them will receive severance pay as the company has yet to comment or provide additional details. They plan to properly file for bankruptcy later this month.

According to Reuters, the company has been seeking a buyer but is failing, prompting thoughts of liquidation. Of course, after declaring bankruptcy they can always continue seeking a buyer, but they have been riddled with debt since 2012. Similar to the Toys “R” Us fiasco, it’s not certain many vendors will want to do business with a company that owes so much money.

WBKB

The debt came from a 2012 buyout and the company originally declared bankruptcy back in 2017. The company re-emerged a few months later despite this.

Payless was founded in 1956 in Topeka, KS on the same basis that we know Payless to be now; selling quality shoes at reasonable prices. The company’s mission, according to the website, is “To be the Go To, Get More, Pay Less shoe store for our target customers.” The company is a private company owned by a group that includes Alden Global Capital, Invesco Senior Secured Management, and Octagon Credit Investors, according to Cleveland 19 News.

Brian Johnston – The Oakland Press

Should Payless declare bankruptcy and not be able to find a buyer, we can now say goodbye to another falling retailer. We don’t know about you, but we’ll miss getting our shoes for a seriously good deal. We wish the best for the company!

Tonight’s Episode Of ‘Last Man Standing’ Is Going To Be A Bit Different

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

If you saw one of our last articles about Last Man Standing, you know that it’s going to lose its Friday spot. If you’re still recovering from that blow, we actually have some good news that might help! Tonight’s episode is actually going to be a full hour long instead of the usual 30-minute segment.

The one-hour episode is actually due to quite the special occasion. Mike (Tim Allen) and his wife Vanessa’s (Nancy Travis) best friends are renewing their vows! The occasion will focus around Chuck (Jonathan Adams) and Carol (Tisha Campbell) who are renewing their vows in light of their 25th wedding anniversary and the whole gang is involved.

Fox

According to TV Guide, Vanessa secures a spot as the Matron of Honor, and from what we can see in Fox network’s preview of the episode, it looks like Mike may the officiant for the vow renewal. Here’s where the trouble comes in. TV Guide has the perfect preview for the episode:

As you’ll see in the clip above, Chuck and Carol have at least one Baxter on their mind for the ceremony: Vanessa (Nancy Travis). When she shares to her husband that their BFFs are thinking of recruiting them to participate in their new nuptials, Mike (Tim Allen) naturally jumps to the conclusion that this shindig is why Chuck has been trying to reach him lately. But could Mike be wrong? From the sounds of it, Vanessa’s not so sure their pals want to include both her and Mike, which could certainly make for a very awkward reception.

Fox

Yikes! Could you imagine how awkward it would be if your spouse was in the ceremony and you imposed as an officiant? Regardless of anything, it’s sure to be quite the interesting episode and we’re so excited to see how it turns out! As previously mentioned, the sneak preview for the episode via Fox’s YouTube channel gives us the idea that Mike actually turns out to be the officiant.

Only time will tell! And you can catch this episode of Last Man Standing during its usual Friday night time slot.

Fox

All of the show’s favorites, including Jay Leno (shown in the sneak preview as well) will be at the vow renewal ceremony. Will you?

Fox

Mom Writes A Warning About Horrible ‘Fish’ Smell In Son’s Room That Was Actually Melted Plastic

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

Have you ever had a weird smell in your home? While sometimes these gross smells have a harmless cause like making fish for dinner or dirty gym socks, sometimes these smells point to something more dangerous. One mother found this out and shared the post to help others stay safe.

She posted that her son’s bedroom started smelling like fish. Put off by the smell, she deep cleaned his room and tried to figure out where the smell was coming from. Then suddenly, the smell was gone. She went on with her days but then was shocked when the fishy smell came back even stronger.

What Happened Next?

She decided to do some research to try to figure out what the smell was and where it was coming from. She found out that melting plastic from outlets can cause a fishy smell. Sure enough, she found an outlet in her son’s room that was hot and melting! Good thing she caught it before it started a fire. She had an electrician come out the same day to fix a bad wire in the outlet and replace the whole outlet.

What Smells Point To Something Dangerous?

So, fishy smells can mean that something electrical is wrong. If you smell fish and can’t figure out why, check all of the outlets and electric wires. If you start smelling rotten eggs, you could have a gas leak or a plumbing issue. Check if the smell is stronger from your drains or when the water is on. If so, it is likely a plumbing issue.

A gas leak is more dangerous. Since gas itself is odorless, the smell is a safety precaution so you know to exit the home and call a professional right away. As always, if you smell something gross and unusual in your home and can’t pinpoint it, call a professional for help. It could save you and your family.

Have you ever had an issue with a strange smell in your home that turned out to be something you would never expect? Have you ever had this same issue with your outlets? It is great that people post these things on social media so it can help someone else!
