On top of that, I'm still getting my shizzle together after a late March Christmas with my family. Thus, today's post is about holiday corsages. Hey, you know I could be dead by glitter inhalation by Christmas so I'd better post now! When I was home with my Mom, she was showing me different things that she had been squirreling away throughout the year - things that she'd found at thrift stores and thought I might like. Yeah, totally. She's my ace in the hole when it comes to cool stuff. Anyway, the car had reached full capacity and I promised the Mister that I wouldn't consider any other items. Of course, then my Mom says, "Come here. I want you to look at something." She opened a drawer and lo and behold my breath was taken away and before I knew it, we were both sitting in the floor in front of the drawer taking in the wonder. Of tons and tons of holiday corsages. Sixteen in all. Wait. Did you hear that? Angels singing.
I already had a small collection of corsages but they are getting way hard to find at estate sales. And if you find one in an antique store there is a good chance that it's going to be above budget. She then told me that I could take what I wanted. Whaaaaaaaaat? Um, yeah. I heard the Mister make a comment in the hall about how I should remember that we had no. more. room. I squeaked out something resembling, "But come seeeeeeeeee!" There was no way that I was going to turn down the opportunity to own the holiday corsage mother-load. I'm not sure how I'm going to display them - they will definitely have to be where the kitties can't get to them and where I can pluck one out to wear when the mood strikes. They're just so beautiful. Justin Timberlake can bring sexy back but as for me? I'm bringing corsages back. Thanks Mom!
Come back next time to see another seasonally inappropriate instant collection gifted to me by Mom.
