Retro mommies...We have a winner!

Glad to be back everyone!
The yardsale was a success!
more on that to come...
The better part of the weekend however
was going to a retro themed baby shower!
Everyone was asked to come in vintage dress...
Right up my alley of course!
Think June Cleaver is what they suggested.
I think I pretty much got the "most accurate" look award....
of course I had to have a mini photo shoot when I got home
because so many people kept telling me how wonderful I looked....
What do you think?
The I'm so glamorous housewife pose...
(I took this with the Tilt Shift Generator app)
The next day my friend told me her husband didn't even recognize me...
Hmmmmm....

This is my "mommy knows better than you" look...
The earrings and the necklace I found at an estate sale for $2.00 for the set!
Funny because after looking at these later I think I look a lot like my dads mom
when she was younger....
Enough of my photo session...
The shower was so cute
we had meatloaf and mashed potatoes
deviled eggs and finger sandwiches
apple pie and cupcakes...
all the nifty stuff a good mommy would know how to serve...
It was a lot of fun.
I didn't have time to thrift because of our mega yardsale
so other than the jewelry set
 I am going to share a piece I "found" that had been forgotten about...
I found it a few months ago at a DAV for $3.95 

Ummm... so it's upside down ....oops...technical difficulties w/ the ICamera
Isn't it just lovely though?
Head on over to ATG 
to see all the other goodies everyone found.
and for the two lovely ladies
who entered my giveaway...
The winner is...
BOTH of you!
I'm glad you both entered and since you were brave enough to comment
I figured you both should get a little something!
Since SuzieQ entered first she's my big prize winner...
and Lisanne is my runner up!
Her gift will be a surprise but you know it'll be great!
Thanks for participating gals!
Send me your info so we can work out the details!
Happy Monday everyone!
