Beauty Abounds for Show and Tell

Here is the little 'pick me up' bouquet I got yesterday. I have been carrying it with me wherever I go so I can enjoy it every minute. And, it was half price! Woo Hoo!

Here is our "Flora", the picture of beauty and poise. Sweet and demure, Flora graces all the society pages with her simple elegance. She is always at the right place at the right time. Her dance card is always filled. Hearts tend to get broken quickly as Flora simply cannot find enough time to dance the night away with all the young gentlemen. It sure keeps them coming back to the dances when Flora is on the guest list.

Meet "Charlotte". Lovely little lady from Savannah. She has lived in the South her entire life and met her dearest husband, an officer, at the debutante ball. Life has been a whirl wind of social activities since they were married. Black tie events are her most treasured evenings to dress up for. So far she has been the best dressed and most admired amongst the officer's wives (and the other officers!!) and she intends to keep it that way!
Introducing Miss "Olivia", daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Billingsworth, of St. Louis, MO. Olivia is their third child of six children, a real girly girl and growing up in the old Victorian home on Main Street was the envy of all the neighborhood. Mrs. Billingsworth hosted the Summer social teas out on the lawn under the canopy and it was there that Olivia realized pink and lace was becoming to her and she liked the attention she received. She could even play croquet in her dressy clothes, much to her Mother's dismay.

Remember last week I filled a box at an estate sale all for $5.00? Well, this sweet pink and white teapot was scooped up so quickly! It was waiting for me. I just know it. They did not have prices on anything so we shopped cautiously with our few dollars. This was a steal. It now sits proudly with my other pink and white pretties and brings so much joy to my day.

Susie, I can see why you move the bouquet with you into each room and I bet it smells heavenly too. You're so clever with your slippers... I bet they all get snapped up quickly. I just adore Flora. Love you pink teapot too!
