TASK 9 - Aunt Trudy's Bag
My Great Aunt Trudy was a wonderful woman. She had no children of her own so, she would occasionally spoil me - to my mother's chagrin. When I visited after getting married she sent my husband and I home with a quilt she had made for me 15 years before (her husband was appalled - her response was that I'd get married someday). She loved Blue - particularily Baby Blue. That same trip she sent me home with some formal gowns and accessories. I put all of it in the back of closets and cabinets and forgot about it - since her taste in fashion was not mine. So, while getting ready for the Black Tie Dinner (a charity dinner that benefits the Human Rights Council) that my husband I attend yearly with friends - I had spent the day getting my nails done, my hair done, my make-up done. The dress had been hanging in the closet for months (usually I was picking the dress up the day of the event from having been tailored). I found perfect shoes the week before - so when I went downstairs to put my lipstick in my bag - imagine my panic when I realized I didn't have a bag!!! Nothing like being in a formal gown and rooting in cabinets. Aunt Trudy must have loved my blue dress because the bag fell out on me - it was still wrapped in the cloth bag she kept it in and insitsted that I'd need it someday. That someday came...in November 2010.
Truthfully, I think I'll redo the layout with the journaling above and maybe a different picture - but not tonight.
