I didn't want to take things from Auntie's attic. That means she's getting older & thinking about "going through things". But she told me she had these great old shoes I must have! Well, see, she is my "Auntie Mame" - if you ever saw the old movie with Roz Russell then you'd know my Auntie. She's all that and more, and we've had a love affair since the day I was born. She was (& still is) a glamour girl for all time. A wild-child who did all things a girl of her time wasn't supposed to do but that others secretly wished they could. As a teenager she ran off with a circus performer! She entered beauty contests, and saw the world with a dashing rogue air force jet pilot. She bought me my first bikini! The first two-piece anything I'd ever worn & if you knew a bikini in the early 60's, it wasn't too daring, but my bellybutton did show! Mom wasn't thrilled I tell ya! Did I mention she was beautiful? Oh she was a show-stopper when she entered a room. Men's eyes would bug out of their heads & she could have her pick of them all. I wanted to be her. Our love affair continues to this day & will for always & forever. So, I did go to collect some of Auntie's treasures, and here are some of them. Some will be beautiful additions to my nostalgia room, others may go to the store.
Auntie's Shoes ~ So glamourous & stylish and of course a matching evening bag
Another pair of shoes & a GORGEOUS beaded evening bag
My grama's purse & a pretty little lucite light switch cover
And a great old 60's pole lamp. I didn't crop this picture for a reason....note the table lamp to the left on my table? Note it has a price tag hanging from it? Brought it home from the store cause I LOVE it & just HAD to have it. Just forgot to take the price tag off of it! I guess I could call it my Minnie Pearl lamp?!
So those are a few of the treasures from an Auntie who is a treasure to me.
