It was in her bag!

On Fathers day last Sunday my step Aunt Kathy brought a bag of goodies! It was full of treasures that she wanted to show us from her Mother. I took lots of pictures to share since we do not see these things every day. Take a look................

Here is Kathy with the bag.......

Inside was this wonderful old shirt insert called a dickey. Look at the detail. When we looked at the label inside we were surprised and delighted to see who wore this........

Tyrone Power!

I could not resist placing my velvet flowers on this incredible beaded piece. I even put some of these pictures on Etsy.

Look at the detail and color on this!

We were all allowed to pick a bag and it was so hard to choose. Kathy was so generous to share!

My Daughter picked this one which she proclaimed as her favorite immediately! She gets her good taste from me......




Oh here is my Dad and Step mom. This is what we all got together for! (got carried away by the goodies) Happy Fathers day dad! I love you!

Kathy made this very cute large cupcake cake. I think it is so cute! And it was delicious. We had a wonderful time.

Two of my children Mandy my daughter and Georgie. Mandy and my son Michael have left the nest but I still have Georgie so I am not without someone to mother!
I will be back later today to give details of the Paris to the Moon sale. You don't want to miss this one!

Kimberly sweetpea, no, I didn't make that slipcover. I got it online from a catalog store for $339.00 and that's a steal because I had one made for a sofa once that cost me $800.00 and that was over 20 years ago! I don't see that they have anymore but this one has been washed and washed and washed and put right back on - NO ironing for me. Just the shabby look.

Thanks for visiting with me and I'll keep in contact with you. Our son lives in Moreno Valley by Riverside and we go back once or twice a year to visit with him so let me know if there are any places around that I should NOT miss shopping at!!! LOL

xoxo,
Connie
