You can't tell from the photo, but the buttons have little anchors on them. And the back laces up. Judging from the label I believe these are from the 60's or 70's.
Some friends of ours have been hosting an annual 4th of July party. They have a great old home. Here's a pic from the realtor when they bought it a few years ago. They live a few blocks away from the Missouri River. We can sit on the hill of their front yard and watch the fireworks.
Here is their back yard. Isn't this wisteria AMAZING! Rue, this is just what you need over your pergola at the Williams house! Unfortunately, I've never been here to see it bloom~ I'm sure it's spectacular.
The home still has the orginal slate roof.
I love this gate.
See that big tree haning over the roof of the garage? It's a Holly tree! It must be a zillion years old. Just covered with berries in the winter; gorgeous!! Here are the kiddos running through the smoke bomb funk, phew!
At last it was time for fireworks! I didn't get any pictures, but this is picture is from the parade last week. This is how Nova was during the fireworks, eyes tightly shut plus tears. I don't know what was different this year but he was affraid of the sirens at the parade, and fireworks too. He loved them last year! So we sat inside the house and watched from there. At least he had fun playing outside pre-fireworks!
SEE? He was amazed by the fireworks last year. We'll have to see what happens next July 4th. Yesterday Kevin took him fishing for the first time. They had a blast. Today they'll probably go swimming while I paint more beadboard for the bathroom.
And before I go, here's a closeup of the hair. This was after we got home tho, and I was tired! I've cut bangs so I did them "mall" style as I didn't want a weenie roll and my bangs don't hold curl well.
And I am so excited that at least one of you was inspired and tried the 'do! The lovely Mamselle Duroc at Classic Vintage Beauty. Isn't she a doll?
