Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Vintage Thingie Thursday!

Is it Thursday already? The days fly by, especially this month.
Please click the link to Coloradolady's site to see many vintage items today, entered by vintage lovers like myself.

This sweet little girl, is nearly as old as I am.
She was given to me by an exotic, sophisticated aunt who graced our lives.
She was a world traveler, smelled of expensive perfume, and was extremely outspoken.
She wore mink coats to the local grocery store.









My brothers were each given a reindeer at the same time, and the trio appeared together each Christmas on the fireplace mantle surrounded by pine boughs in our family home. When we left, Mom gave us each our treasure. The wreath has been broken, and elmer glued. She's been packed up and moved four or five times. Christmas just wouldn't be the same without her, and one day, Emmy will have her to remember her Grammy by.

Oh she is precious! (And made far more so for the Elmer's gluing and lovely story you've shared about her!)

Happy happy holidays! :)

Oh I just loved the story behind this little lady! Make sure to write it all down and tape it to the bottom, (or Elmer's glue it on) so the details about this unique aunt won't be forgotten.

Anyway....I agree, write the story down and keep it with her, someone later on will be glad you did.

Have a wonderful week.
