Happy Mother's Day

My Etsy and eBay finds this week.

I found the 1971 College issue Glamour.
I wore this out the summer of 71 looking at it over and over!!
Can't wait to look at it again!
 The Fall clothes were so pretty that year..

Vintage barrettes

pretty vintage dresses, wish I was skinny.....

Pretty Fire King bowls

Salt and Pepper Jadeite

Sweet buttons for my collection.

Love my tea sets!

Available at Etsy.
Still wish I was skinny...

More Jadeite.
This one I haven't bought, it's a little pricey.

There are so many nice embroidery pieces at eBay and Etsy.
This is from the UK.

I love the button cards and the pretty embroidered bluebirds! And the children's teaset, too. I think we like a lot of the same things. :-)

Oh, the Summer of '71! My magazine then was Seventeen. I had just finished my sophomore year of high school and little did I know that in just a few short months I would meet George, the boy of my dreams...who both captivated me and enfuriated me. Over 40 years later he's still doing it!
