Big Bird!

I took a suggestion from Misfit's Vintage Blog and bought a YELLOW dress! The pictures do not do the yellow justice. I thought I looked a bit like big bird. I got a lot of ladies telling me they loved my outfit. but that is probably because I stuck out like a "zoot suit at a Shaker's funeral".

We went to the Dill Tavern to listen to the Big Band.

I found this watch pin at Marjorie's Gems. I had to have it because my Dad's first job when he was 13 years old was working the ice truck.

This alligator purse is from Cuba and belonged to my husband's Mom. The little guy still has his very sharp little teeth. When my hubby was little, his mom had this in church and he sat down on it and yelled out in the middle of service "It bit my butt!". It has since drawn blood from all three of my boys who felt the need to stick their
finger in it's mouth.

I need a name for my purse. Any suggestions?
