Why 'My Mink Betty'?

Why 'My Mink Betty'?
I'm not your common, everyday twenty-something year old and when I graduated from High School I got an equally uncommon gift. My parents found for me a beautiful 1940's mink stole at a garage sale. It had belonged to the woman's Great Aunt Betty who had married late in life to a man with money and had only allowed him to buy her this one luxury. The unusually styled stole has the name, Betty L. Jones, embroidered in the satin lining so that's what I call her. They never had children of their own and the mink was passed to Aunt Betty's niece and on to her daughter. Until it got to me, no one since Aunt Betty had worn it. Now Betty the mink and I go to the theater together on special occasions and I hope that someday I can take her to the Symphony or the Ballet. Although Betty hadn't been worn or loved for many years she was waiting for someone to love her again as are most other things I look for when thrifting.

Taking a Short Break

I am sorry to have to say this, but I haven't been able to post or respond to comments for several days due to a recent medical emergency within the family.  I do not think I will be able to post actively for the time being but hope to be back in a few weeks.
I do have a limited amount of free time but I have a few crafting deadlines fast approaching and until such things are completed I cannot dedicate my time to blogging.  
I hope you all have a lovely few weeks and find many great, fun or even outrageous things to blog about in your own thrifting adventures.

Thank you for understanding,
