Gloves and Pearls For Easter

Easter time brings back memories of crisp white gloves, a string of pearls, a clean hankie in my new white purse.  I did occasionally get a new dress for Easter and wore it with white ankle socks and white patent Mary Janes, until I graduated to nylons and white pumps in Jr. High. I remember having a white headband with little white flowers on it and occasionally a corsage made with a pink Camelia that grew in our yard.

These polka dot gloves were found at a yard sale. I thought they were darling. They sit in a drawer with the white ones above, and some cute pink ones I found too. Of course, no one wears these kind of gloves any more, but I am a little sentimental about the memories they provoke.
Thank you for taking a peek at my blog today. I do wish all my friends and followers a happy, meaningful Easter. -Derrith
