The two estate sales Judy & I went to last weekend didn’t have much of interest (and the one that had advertised high end antiques was in a scuzzy little house on a positively spooky street!) but I did manage to spend a buck and a quarter. Which netted me three of these nice Vera napkins
as well as a darling little headscarf.
Does anyone else remember that brief period in the Sixties when we tied these little triangles under our chins and felt we were cool?
It started me thinking that the yard sale gods have been quite generous with the Veras for a while now, and I remembered that I have four vintage Vera silk scarves that are lovely, but I've never worn any of them.
Time for a giveaway, I said. And so here we are.
Four scarves, four winners! Just leave a comment telling me which of the four is your favorite. And of course if you have any Vera stories, do share. Like your memory of wearing your own Vera headscarf and how cute you were. Or your mom did. Okay, okay, your grandmother. Vera spans the generations!
Scarf number one, a long piece of silk with stylized roses.
Number two, a long silk scarf with a small scale floral design.
Number three, a large square with pink roses.
And number four, another square with a mod orange and yellow design.
Please leave your comment by Sunday, December 4, 2016. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
Now that the Vera business is taken care of, here’s a Millie report. I was taking her picture the other day with the Velveteen Rabbit that is her measuring stick. Here she is in July,
As I looked at her, something seemed a bit…off. It took me a moment to realize that all her long white eye whiskers are missing over her left eye!
I have no idea what she has been up to. I half expect someday to find a little pile of white whiskers in some untoward place, or on one of the inch-wide window frames ten feet over my head in this midcentury modern house with glass walls.
I probably don’t want to know, do I?
