Boy did Mama ever love the holidays. Easter meant a new dress with new shoes and matchin' handbag. Of course there was the Easter corsage made of artificial flowers that did not fade or wilt. But the frosting on the cake was her brand new hat. There were times when Mama couldn't afford a new dress but she always made sure she had a new hat. She would go straight to Fain's Bargain Basement and find something to gussy up her old hat! Off to church she'd go with her shiny black pocketbook hung over her arm and gloves in hand. Did I tell you that Mama walked to church? When the weather was bad, she would spring for a Bluebird Taxi Cab. Sweet memories, why I can hear Perry Como singing right now - "IN YOUR EASTER BONNET, WITH ALL THE FRILLS UPON IT" ..........
"IN THE EASTER PARADE"
"ON THE AVENUE" . . . What avenue?
First let me tell you that the purtty little girl you see in her Easter Bonnet came from Miss Peggy at Peggy Loves Vintage . I adore all her images - they are delightful to work with and so nostalgic. They take me right back to my Mama's life and such wonderful memories. And the cute little sign post I bought from Diana.
This card is my entry for Inventory Challenge #25 and I know my team mates have some wonderful cards posted on their blogs!
I do appreciate you visiting my blog and reading all about my Mama --- comments are so appreciated and enjoyed.
