Oh, To Be A Little Girl Again.......

Remember when you were little and the approach of Easter brought excitement for your Easter outfit?  Pretty, fluffy dresses, white tights, white patent leather shoes and of course, a bonnet.  Easter is in April this year, but it will come quickly.  I was looking through my two shops and thought how lovely some of these hats would be as Easter Bonnets.
White Rose Cloche
 Wouldn't that be sweet?! 
Cotton Candy Rose Cloche
 A little pink and white. 

And let's not forget ourselves....We need to have a little fun too.   This beautiful Vintage hat is one of my favorites and looks like Lemon Meringue.  To pretty.

Wouldn't that be perfect?! And Oh, so fun!  It's just lovely.

I have a serious hat addiction.  Maybe it comes from all the childhood Easter excitement. 

I hope you all have a lovely day, and if you would like to keep up with Monkey & Me or Flourishes, please come follow me on Facebook.  Enjoy!

Atkins Diet, a la 1933.....

Today's post will be short.  I need to run a few errands before all the snow shows it's ugly face.  It may be waist deep on kiddo! I think all the talk on the news is starting to scare him a bit.  But he'll have fun after it stops.  Something for him to remember and tell his Grandkids.... "When I was a boy,....".

 I found today's little tidbit in a pamphlet that was put out by the National Live Stock and Meat Board in 1933 and immediately thought of the Atkins Diet.  You know, the big, new thing about 10 years ago.  Turns out, not so new.
I love the "EAT MEAT WHEN REDUCING".  What a slogan! LOL!!!

Here is a picture of the cover of the book.  It's a shame it has a sticker on it, because it's a very pretty Art Deco cover.

Well, I hope you all stay safe and warm today!
