Today is March 12th 2012 , also know as the Girl Scouts of American founding day by Juliette Gordon Low Savannah Georgia birthplace. This is their 100th birthday. I have been to her house once years ago while visiting Savannah Georgia. I am sure this week in Savannah their is lots of visitors.
I had a sister born on this day and the Girl Scouts in my home town Mt Vernon Illinois decided to adopt the first baby born on this special day. By adopting meaning they would throw this child a big birthday party every year until the child was 6 years old honoring the child because it was born on this special day .
My sister Elizabeth Paulette ( Libby) was the first baby born on March 12 th so every year through her 6th birthday all the Brownie and Girl Scout troops met in designated place and gave her a party including cake ,ice cream and a gift from each troop. I loved seeing what all she got every year. She always got some kind of bunny I remember.
Here is a picture taken on her 4th birthday . I am in the picture also standing next to her the cake is in front of me (ahhhhhhhhh)
My Brownie & Girl Scouts pins, so glad my Mom kept them . My sister has an entire picture albumn of all her Girl Scout birthday parties.
Can you believe we sold our Girl Scout cookis for 35 cents a box? I am almost telling my age LOL
Can you guess what year this picture was taken?
Yesterday a girl friend and I did a little vintage shop shopping then went to an estate sale and I spotted a velvet box that caught my eye since I like velvet boxes. They are just so Victorian looking to me I love the old ring boxes
love the key hole and ornate corners
