Peace, Love, & MARJOR Milestones...


 And Guess What?

Oh, very well, I'll tell you!

Today is my 62nd birthday... and... I've retired!  How great is that?  

Well, retired from the regular "workin' for the man" workforce... 

because I'll never stop working... I'm just not made that way!  

But now, my work is also my play!

Oh, I'm a lucky girl!  Yes!

And guess what again?

Oh, very well, I'll tell you... again!

This Wednesday, the 17th, HH Noel and I will celebrate our 25th Anniversary! 

And how great is that?  Pretty great, I'm thinking!

And to celebrate, guess what I'm going to do?

Oh, very well, I'll tell you!  (Since I know you'll never guess this one.)

I'm going on a thrifting Road Trip with my youngest sister to go visit my oldest brother in Nebraska!

Now, how great is that?  I mean... really!

Noel is staying home to take care of our 5 cats, 2 dogs, and 10 chickens...

He really rocks!  

Because he knows what makes me happy!

And... besides that, we are going to Round Rock on Tuesday to eat at Chola, our favorite Indian restaurant!

(And I'll bet you thought I misspelled MAJOR didn't you?)


Well, these beautiful limey green, salmon colored, goldenroddy, 
satin-covered, Paisley-patterned

Glove, Hosiery, & Hankie storage boxes from the 1960s were owned by none other than...

MARJ... (I wonder who she was?)

Here they are again in all their Flower-Power glory!

Peace Out!

Don't forget! Today is the drawing for my Giveaway!

  3. Love the hosiery boxes. Think I had the oblong oval one in pink years ago. Nice finds! :)

    1. Thank you! I too have these kinds of boxes in other colors...could be a whole post out of those pretty babes! Thanks for dropping by!
