Hostess gowns,a little girls dream : )

Attitudes by Renee Jersey Knit Sarong Skirt with Leggings         A modern version of the I love lucy pant-skirt or as they use to call them, hostess gowns. If any of You were grown-ups in the 50s,You might have had the pleasure of owning one.How I dreamt of it for Years as a little girl of the 50s. Well, I found one close to it on qvc, bought it and love it.Mine's in black.

Even other actresses wore them,I'm hoping all women who wanted to got the chance to wear these pretty outfits. 

                                                                                                       Now modern runway models are strutting them,I'm hoping the look comes back but slightly more 50s style.

Well, this one is a modern perfection of the old style.
Do any of You remember fondly a style for grown women that You wanted so badly as a little girl? 
QVC, not spot on but close enough for Me.
Hugs and Blessings.Denise

More Tea Time and Tea Pretties.

Can any of You recognize this Christmas music tea cup ?
 It's My latest purchase from QVC during the Christmas in July show.  A Lenox "music box" and the figures glide on the glass with the song  Jingles Bells in the background. 

For one of My daughters birthday,Annette, I did a Tea Party for Her family at My home.I then took Her and Her Little girl out to a tea house.

 It looks like Maddie just might be My last Grandchild.I'm enjoying Her so much.She was a good girl,stirring Her tea before it was served.I play Tea Time with Her at home while Her Mommy works,so She is learning nicely. Maybe by next Year I'll take Her to a Tea House with just the two of Us.The Boys and Gramps were a little taken back by the tiny sandwiches, after they had a few Tea size, I of course made the three of them Man size sandwiches and huge pieces of cake.

                           One of My favorite activities any time.

Flowers are always included : )Can anyone tell Me the name of this rose ? One of My other daughters moved into a new home and found these growing in Her back yard. Joining these parties......Martha's Tea Cup Tues. and Sandi's Tea Time Tues. the links are on My sidebar.Please come on over to join Us for tea talk. Hugs and Blessings to all-Denise

Tent Camping in Our 60s and 70s ?

Sum Sum Summertime
Summertime Summertime sum sum Summertime SUMM-ER-TIME.How I miss tent camping with loved ones.A few Years ago Paul and I tried it with Our whole gang once more.
 It was so hard on Us,Our daughters ended up practically having to take care of Us.I have camped My whole life,in fact I have always considered it a big part of My life.Now that I'm in My 60s and Paul's in His 70s.We won't be trying it again.Our Daughters agree.RVor trailer is all We can cope with, but now those are getting tough so I'll stick with My memories.....and crafting about those days.How about throwing in a few camping dolls to go along with My huge imagination..

I try to practice looking out and up to My mountains (off My patio) and to My Lord who has given Me all those wonderful memories.
Here's to Us....Ragged and a few pounds gained,soaken wet in the pouring rain at Mount Rushmore a few weeks ago.....from now on,on wheels traveling the US. It's a blessing and joy.Tomorrow  is Our 38th Anniversary, Today We are celebrating....out to dinner and lots of hugs and kisses planned. Denise.I'm partying with Hope In Every Season, You'll find the button to the party on My sidebar   : )

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
