I am trying my best to figure out why the heck I have bought and hoarded beautiful items since I was about 21? Some things wasn't so beautiful, I use to love primitive kitchen items.
I am thinking as the physiologist say, we buy things that remind us of our child hood? Why do you think we run all over looking for treasures? In my childhood days we didn't have all this stuff in our home?
I always bought things to fill a void I know that now. Heavy statement admitting this right?
Anyway here is a few items that reminds me of a girlfriend of my Mom's. Edeen was very small I would say today's standards a size zero, not that this matters a bit to my story LOL
Anyway she dressed fancy and frilly and flowy. This is how the child in me is describing her. Her dresses were always like an old movie stars blowing in the wind. I wish I could find this one picture of her, it's here someplace in a box of my Mom's pictures of days gone by. She was about 4 ft 11" and always had high heels on . I can only remember her really dressed up.
Anyway to make a short story long, she always had the most beautiful evening bags. They called them Carry All's. you could get your lipstick, powder, money, and of course cigarettes in them, Oh and they all have a mirror and small comb.
This is one that I bought thinking of Edeen
Inside , see the little comb change compartment, lipstick, powder compartment on this side
The Back, where you put your cigarettes, back in the 1950's everyone smoked, you wore it on your wrist , this one has a wire mesh handle
And then there was always the rhinestone jewelry, the bracelets is what I always loved as a child about 5 or 6 years old I remember Edeen dresses had rhinestone buttons, Oh that is another one of my collections
As a child I would have been in heaven to have just one of these bracelets. I loved to play dress up
I love the ones you stretch over your dainty wrists
I am just going through drawers and cleaning off my dressers and reminiscing
Linky parties to check out because they are great ones
