I am still sorting and purging around our house. Today was a great day for it because we've been snowed in. I decided to tackle #1's room. Daughter #1 adores anything vintage. Especially clothes and accessories. She is a pack rat. Her grandmother was also a pack rat. I was cleaning out another dreaded box from #1's old bedroom and came upon these:
These look like perfect accessories for the girls on Mad Men.
Moving on. I then pulled these out of the box. I never considered my childhood items to be vintage until I was informed of it by my daughter. I don't want any nasty comments about them being antiques either.
My bingo game still in the original box from when I was a little girl. I also found this in the game box:
Alas, it was empty. Mum wouldn't let me have these when I was a young girl because I might grow up to smoke. My great aunt lived with us then and she always bought them for me whenever we went up town. I loved her.
I guess I was going to grow up to be a cigarette smoking Bingo player. Who knew?
p.s. I'm expecting an urgent phone call from #1 forbidding me from the disposal of said items.
