I've gone through all the closets and drawers (both kinds of drawers, in this case). I knew my mother liked to shop, but I had no idea how much.
(Click the images and see the collections grow.)
|SOCKS... THE FINAL PILE WAS TWICE THIS SIZE.|
My mother wouldn't care that I've told you about the hand-knits. She´d be proud. And she´d be even more proud they've all been donated to JASA, a wonderful social services agency without which she would not have been able to live independently this past year. Dozens of beautiful items The Duchess made and wore over the years — including a crocheted and silk-lined purse. I'll share some individual photos one of these days.
|I THOUGHT I WAS DONE STACKING THE HAND-KNITS.|
|THEN I WAS SURE I WAS DONE, SO I BOXED IT ALL UP.|
|BUT, WAIT, THERE´S MORE!!!|
My mother would NOT be pleased I've told you about the 57 bras and 104 pairs of panties (at least I didn't include photos).
Nothing but gratitude and smiles remembering a life lived fully, independently and uniquely...
In really, REALLY nice underwear.
P.S.: Sorry to not be keeping up on your comments and blogs. I will get back to you all once I've dug myself out from under all the clothes, shoes and several hundred pairs of earrings. This may take a while. — m
