This is the time of year many of us seem to get the urge to purge -- belongings, that is! This morning I went through drawers and found things to donate to Goodwill, as well as a few oddities and memorabilia that I thought post-worthy.
First up -- a pair of ecru cotton gloves, last worn in August of 1971 for the president's reception for incoming freshmen at Baylor. Those were the days when dressing up meant a long dress, and my mother made mine -- ecru cotton trimmed with cotton lace. Wish I had a photo of the dress! I'm keeping the gloves, just in case they ever come back into style! They still fit -- unlike the dress. . . .
