Everthing old is new again . . .
And I mean more than the Saturday Seven.
My daughters' school has an Oldies Dance tonight - they actually have two dances a year and this is the only one open to all 9th-12th graders - and we have had quite a time coming up with costumes this week. One daughter is going as an 80's club girl (complete with pressed jeans and high heels, pearls and flashy clothes!), Middle Daughter is dressed in 1970's attire - a lovely patterned dress, books and an up-do. She's make a nice bank teller or teacher a la 1976. Youngest Daughter is going as "Miss Chickpea County of 1947" complete with sash and bouquet of roses. We wanted her to be the "Queen of Non sequitur" but she felt that was a bit much!
Mr. Daisy and I are going to get to see them in all our glory as we are working the event. In costume. We are going as beatniks.
I was hoping for more of an "Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face" rather than the Maynerd Krebs kind of look but we'll see.
Today's Saturday Seven was all culled from one dresser drawer: a pad of football shaped sticky notes, a paper punch, a pair of sunglasses, a Girl Scout songbook, a bag of American Girl grin pins, a de-fuzzer and (get those minds out of the gutter!) a FOOTROLLER from the Body Shop that I got as a Christmas present from one of my kids. Now, there is much more room in my pajama drawer for what's really necessary.
