WE ALWAYS SAY "YES"TO A DONATION
Last Thursday a woman called the costume shop and asked if we were interested in a donation of "old clothes" that a family member left after some family problem (don't really care). A shed full of stuff. We always say "yes", because you never know. On Friday we unloaded 2 pickup truck loads of boxes, bins, more boxes. This is a small look at the donation.
I took some photos, but I really needed to log all the pieces in. Could have spent the whole day taking photos. Enjoy this taste.
The next photos make me sad. Beautiful 1920's dresses that are falling apart. The silk is so fragile we'll never be able to use these. We will put them in acid free storage boxes and use them for teaching and research.
Most of the donation was woman's clothes. There was a couple of tuxes and military uniforms. And these 2 fun skirts.

Welcome to the 70's
Like I said, only a very small part of the donation. I will take some more photos ( some of the labels are fun) when I get time. The musical is fast approaching. I probably won't get to the shoes and hats until April, but there are some really awesome shoes. Too bad I wear a size 10.

THE DOCTOR COOKS
The Doctor asked me to teach him how to cook. Ok, sounds like fun.
Yep, the Super Bowl happened and it was ok. Lady Gaga did a really good job singing the National Anthem, which was a surprise. The half time show was lacking: Coldplay did their lackluster U2 impersonation. Not a fan.
The Dollar Tree (AKA everything's a $ store) was having a DVD sale. Found these 3.
A new thrift store opened. I checked it out one Saturday and found some treasure.

Have a wonderful week!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KENAN
Today is my friend's birthday. Yesterday we celebrated by having rainbow sprinkle sugar cookies. Kenan is in grad school at LSU getting is degree in costuming.
Christie Jo, yours truly, and Esther AKA The Boss.
I'm wearing an outfit that cost around $10. $2 Levis, sweater/tunic $4.99 (from Nordstrom Rack) thrifted scarf and a homemade hat.
The show we've been working one (well, one of them) opened last night. It's our winter children's tour and is call Bunnicula the vampire bunny. It's based on a series of books. It's a musical, but isn't everything these days? The costumes were pulled or bought and the rabbit puppet was found on-line. This one was pretty easy to do. Not all show have to be giant sized productions. That will be our up coming musical: Oklahoma! OK?
